As the world has become more and more digital one of the Historical Items of the past has faded away.  Vintage Postage Stamps tell a story of the times the were used in.  Many young people will never use a stamp.   I take these vintage stamps to make a very visually stunning and functional writing instrument.  Its more than a pen its a historical capsule.  

The stamps are carefully chosen, arranged, and encased in a crystal clear resin.   These pens are comfortable in the hand as well as beautiful to look at.  I am offering these vintage postage stamp pens with stamps from many countries.  This Kickstarter campaign will offer a way to introduce and expand this line of my handmade pens.

To reward the projects backers I have come up with some wonderful rewards.    I am offering some Limited edition Earlybird rewards as well as some larger stunning rewards.
$39 Limited Chrome Ballpoint.   (uses a Parker Style refill)
$39 Limited Gun Metal Ballpoint.   (uses a Parker Style refill)
$45 Limited Chrome Rollerball.     (uses a Rollerball refill)
$45 Limited Gun Metal Rollerball.    (uses a Rollerball refill)
$69 The Banker,  2 choices, Chrome & Black Ti or Chrome & 10K Gold. (uses a Parker style refill)
$89 The Cigar, 3 choices, Gold & Gunmetal, Gunmetal, and Chrome.   (uses a Parker style refill)
$119 The Professional,   Chrome and Black   (uses a Rollerball refill)
$159 Kings Fountain Pen,  Chrome and Gold,   Also can chose Rollerball.
  (You can chose Fountain or Rollerball,   each comes with refill)

IF you want more than one pen please just add the difference to one of your selections.   If you are including one of the limited pens please chose that as your reward since the quantity is limited.  

The four Early bird Pen options are only available here and will not be sold anywhere else.  Please view the pictures of the rewards to see samples of what your pen will look like.   They pens you receive will be unique and one of a kind.  I will arrange and make an amazing pen for you. 

Risks and challenges

This project carries very little risk. All manufacturing is done by me in my shop. The biggest risk is the time frame (depending on results of the campaign) and stamp availability. USA, and Canada I have thousands. Other countries are harder to obtain but I have secured a good amount.
