Risks and challenges

We need your help to be able to start mass production of the ITALIA Fountain Pen. We have completed 8 Kickstarter projects without any issues. We have been working on this pen for several months and the design has been refined and all the manufacturers and suppliers are lined up to commence production. We tested several prototypes and are extremely happy with the end results. Our major challenge is to raise the necessary funds and we hope you can help us out. Thank you for your support!
