The Pen Addict Live at the 2016 Atlanta Pen Show was a huge success thanks to all of our Kickstarter supporters. We are back again to do the same at the 2017 Atlanta Pen Show, and want to mix in a little fun with this project at the same time. Let's fly Myke over for the 2017 Washington D.C. Pen Supershow as well!
Here is the plan: Atlanta will be set up just like last year, which was amazing. The Pen Addict Podcast will record in front of a live audience on Saturday, April 22nd, and we will also shoot video of the show to be released just to backers of this project.
In addition, we will take some of the funds raised to get Myke to DC. While there will not be live video of the podcast there, we will record an episode from the show, and Myke will put together a Vlog of the event for backers of this project. And, of course, we will have a meetup.
Once again, we are enlisting the help of Nock Co. to provide you with the rewards for this Kickstarter campaign. In addition to the $15 Video/Vlog level, Nock Co. is recreating their 2016 Atlanta exclusive penvelope, hereby named the Sapelo, in a Kickstarter-only colorway.
The Sapelo features a 1000D Cordura exterior in Steel Grey with a 400D nylon pack cloth interior in Fluorescent Orange. We have also designed a special Pen Addict label for this campaign. The Sapelo is perfect for carrying your pocket-sized notebooks and a couple of your favorite writing instruments. (Note: The case colors are the same throughout. The different shades of grey and orange denote opening and pocket areas.)
We are more excited than ever for this project, and we greatly appreciate your support!
As requested, here are some pictures of the limited Sapelo we did for last year's Atlanta Pen Show. The case dimensions are 6" wide x 4-1/2" tall (when closed). The depth allows you to easily fit three 3-1/2" x 5-1/2" notebooks, with room for more if you really want to pack it.
The pen pocket requires clips, unless you want to chase your pen all day. You can fit up to three depending on the size. Shown are the Karas Kustoms EDK and a Rotring 600.
The bottom picture show the case closed and loaded out with the same three notebooks plus the pen and pencil from the top picture.
$20K Stretch Goal Announced: Field Notes Field Trip And Party!
Mark down Friday, October 13th, 2017 in your calendars, especially if you are in the greater Chicagoland area. Myke and I will be at Field Notes HQ, shooting a video interview with Jim Coudal and Brian Bedell. All backers for any level containing video will receive this video as well. And, we may be able to squeeze a few locals into the live shoot also. Those details are being hashed out, and we will update once they are solid.
What we do know is there will be a party Friday open to all, which will include a meet and greet, food and drink, and a Field Notes Pop-Up Shop. This is open to everyone who wants to drop by and hang out with us at Field Notes HQ.
We need your help to get there, and the $20K sketch goal for this event is well within reach right now. Help us make this incredible event happen!
