   Martin Manias, founder of Storyteller™:
It's more than just a business.
It's more than just a fountain pen.
It's a mission.
A mission to make people fall in looove with handwriting again ...
   WHY IS HANDWRITING SO IMPORTANT?
   Albert Einstein once said, if all bees died, humanity would die in 4 years. But what would happen to you, if the art of handwriting died?
   Take a look at our short video to get a basic understanding of why handwriting is so important:

   According to a Forbes article, psychology expert and researcher Dr. J. P. says, “It appears possible that writing, which is a formalized form of thinking, helps people derive information from their experiences that help them guide their perceptions, actions, thoughts, and emotions in the present.”
   Perhaps this is why so many people handwrite in their journals and diaries, or write out their goals and aspirations.
   »... handwriting increases neural activity in certain sections of the brain…«
 

 
   According to a study performed at the Indiana University, the mere action of writing by hand unleashes creativity not easily accessed in any other way.
   And high-tech magnetic resonance imaging has indeed shown that low-tech writing by hand increases neural activity in certain sections of the brain ….
   "… handwriting activates a unique neural circuit …"
 

 
   “When we write, a unique neural circuit is automatically activated,” said Dr. Stanislas Dehaene, a cognitive psychologist at the Collège de France in Paris. “There is a core recognition of the gesture in the written word, a sort of recognition by mental simulation in your brain.
 

A study led by Karin James, a psychologist at Indiana University, lent support to that view.

    Writing by hand — and even going beyond that — sketching, drawing, doodling, is a necessary mode of human connection.
   It's rare to see someone focus on their art for many, many hours in a row these days. Some people are addicted to their devices like "cyber zombies." I see them every day.
   It's like they're not real human beings anymore. More like robots, glued to their screens. Not present. And half-alive to life.
   OUR STORYTELLER STORY
   Our Storyteller story began with the development of our 3D printed fountain pens.
 

 
   The people at Shapeways must really love us since they gave us the opportunity to test out over 170 different print designs, play around with the thickness and colors of the pens and 6 months later we finally had our fully functioning prototypes (huraaaaaaaaaayyy), that completely wowed the whole Storyteller team.
   Because we were so pleased with what we created, we wanted to make sure we could create the same effect with an even more durable and unbreakable material.
   After some hard word and some sleepless nights we were able to develop what we believe is the next step in our journey - the brand new METAL Storyteller fountain pen.
 

 
   Start writing your story with our Storyteller fountain pens. It seems such a small change but it will have a big impact on your creativity and help you get more in touch with your thoughts & goals.
 

LIMITED OFFER: Our 3D printed Storyteller fountain pens will be available exclusively during our Kickstarter and will not be available for sale after the end of our campaign.

Risks and challenges

We know that there can always be some unexpected delays during production but we have planned for this and extended our production schedule accordingly.

Another common challenge is fulfilling a project that exceeds its project funding goal significantly. To solve this potential issue we are working with large manufacturers that can produce our fountain pens in any quantity realistically possible on Kickstarter. We do not anticipate any extension of the delivery date unless the project exceeds 1900 backers, at which point we would need to revise the manufacturing completion target date.

Shipping large volumes - If we will get highly overfunded, all fountain pens will be packaged and sent by a professional logistics warehouse, so we will be able to pack shipments quickly and without mistakes.
