Link Love: (fill in the blank) of the Year?

Which color will be your color of the year? Or your pen of the year? Or your word of the year?

Pelikan’s Rose Quartz or Pantone’s Viva Magenta are head-to-head as the pen community’s color of the year. Right? How similar are they? We will have to wait and see. IT appears that Rose Quartz might be a bit dustier pink. But who knows? Is Pelikan “on trend”?  Hmmmm….

I enjoy a special product each year but I’m not sure the logic behind the choices being made for each of them. Lamy has released one, two, or more Safari of the Year each year and their own ink color. Kaweco seems to roll out a new Sport or four each year. This trend has been going on so long that Brad and I have had buttons made to show your support for which Safari or AL-Star (or even Kaweco) you think is the winner.

What’s your take on the “_____ of the Year” trends? Do you look forward to these new products? Any guesses for the Lamy or Kaweco pens of the year?
