In honor of Fountain Pen Day, There are many special deals, offers and discounts across the stationery-world. Rather than attempt to list them all here, I am just including a link to the FPD web site where all the participating shops are listed. Click on any participating shop to find out what special deals they are offering.
One of the most coveted special projects this year is Papier Plume‘s special FPD ink: Cafe Diabolique which was blended to be an exact match for Cafe Brulot, a trance-inducing after-dinner coffee ritual which is still being performed by a few old-school waiters skilled in the flaming at-table ritual. This is something I definitely want to try next time I visit the French Quarter. As of posting this, the direct link to the product was not yet available so check the inks page (linked above at Noon, New Orleans time) or Papier Plume’s Instagram account for more info.
Also available today, the last few pads of our latest iteration of our Vintage Typewriter Paper Pads ($12 each, limit 3 per customer — also on Etsy) featuring super lightweight Southworth Onionskin paper. There are just a few of these pads left (Patrons got a first go at them so they pretty much cleaned us out!) so be swift if you want to try our latest NOS paper pads. Also, all orders placed today and Saturday will include a free Col-o-ring Dipper (no coupon required)!
Happy Fountain Pen Day!
