Shipping Update and Holiday Opening

Hey backers
I shipped out all the pens received from the finishers and am waiting on the rest to come back. I have been in constant contact with finishing and they say the pens should be back by the end of next week. Once I get the pens back it shouldn't be more than a few nights before all are in the mail. Barring any more delays, I should have them all shipped by Christmas the latest.

Now for something completely different. Starting this Christmas, Ball and Buck, a local “All American” store found on Newbery Street (Boston), will be carrying the pens exclusively (in store and on the web) under my new brand Schon Dsgn. To launch this collaboration (and another collaboration of theirs) they are holding a holiday party this Thursday. I am extending this invitation to all backers and would love to meet some of you there and thank you personally for helping me with this project. Details ---

Thanks again for being patient everyone. Looking forward to getting the rest of these out to you all! Hope to meet some of you Thursday.

      I just got my pen today. It is exactly what I was looking for. It has a modern design and is quite simply perfect.

      Just got my pen yesterday and tested it out at work today and I have to say it has blown away my expectations. Just want to thank you Ian for caring about making a quality product. I can tell how much thought went to it (such as the shortened threading to unscrew the cap). It is refreshing to pay for a product and understand exactly why the product demands a premium.

      I don't believe I every received the address survey. How should I go about getting you my address?

      And once again, my pen has been shipped (got a tracking number) but has not yet arrived. I tried to contact you in several ways, I understand you are quite busy... I would really appreciate an answer.

      Please forward me you new address.

      Hi Ian,
      I'm moving from the US on the 15th of December.
      Do you think the pen will be able to make it here in NC before that?
      If not, could I change my address?

      Congratulations - that's great news! Thanks also for the shipping update.
