New Pen Makers

Karen

Are pens and notebooks making a slight comeback? I have noticed that even people who manage most of their calendar and communications by a blackberry, iPhone, or some other kind of electronic devise still like to to carry around a notebook for meetings or to record their ideas, private thoughts and observations. They also carry a pen. Or two.

Along with the surge in notebook interest have come some new pen makers.  Three new pen companies I am following are Edison Pen Co. in Ohio; The Goulet Pen Company in Virginia; and the Norsk Workshop in Florida. You can also follow them on Facebook:  Brian at The Goulet Pen Company, Patrick at Norsk Workshop and Brian at Edison Pen Co.

I hope to get to meet each of them at a pen show in 2010, where I will leave poorer but much happier!

Do you have a new or favorite pen maker to recommend?  Are you considering entering the field?

  1. I enjoyed reading your post! Thank you for including my little pen shop!

    The timing of this post is too funny! I just bought my very first Rhodia notebook yesterday at “Sign with Prestige” in Fort Collins Colorado where I have been spending the week with family. I have not tried it out yet, but looking forward to putting a little ink to paper.
