Update

Hey backers,

As many of you know, the bulk of the second run pens were shipped last weekend and the rest on Monday. Hopefully most of these make it to your before Christmas. 

However, there are around 30 orders that have still not shipped due to lack of address or problems with the address. I will try and ship any I can today and contact you if your info is not correct.

I have been getting a lot of “where is my pen?” emails. If you have not yet received your pen, check your email for a shipping notification (Search for “Ian Schon has sent you a package” in your email). If the tracking info says Jamaica NY for an international backer, that means it has passed through customs and I can no longer track it. Shipping outside of the US has been taking anywhere from 2-5 weeks depending on customs and where you are located. Please be patient! If you have not gotten your pen and have not received a shipping notification please send an email to penprojectshipping@gmail.com and I will look into it for you.

I am sorry for any lack of communication over the past few months. My kickstarter inbox has been quite full of messages and some get lost in the chaos. If I haven’t gotten back to your inquiry or message please send an email to penprojectshipping@gmail.com. 

That’s all for now. Some final updates, thoughts on the process and project, valuable lessons and upcoming projects to come (perhaps a pen with knurling and clip?). Hope you all like your pens, looking forward to hearing your feedback. Thanks for all your support.

      Let me explain why this pen is magical. I'm left handed and lots of pens just don't work well for lefties. We have to push pens instead of pull pens and then tend not to follow as well. The pressurized ink in this pen prevents this problem. I totally adore this pen.

      It is beautiful.

      Got mine a couple days ago and its the best pen I've ever used, compact in my pocket and just really cool. Got so many compliments and almost lost it because they "almost forgot" to give it back. Anyways great job and thanks! :)

    9. Creator Over the River on December 23, 2012

      I got my pen the other day and love it. Always in my pocket (when not in use), it only takes up a little space, I never worry over spilt ink, and the design and build are first class. Thank you Ian; well done.

    10. Creator Stuart Collins on December 23, 2012

      I was one of the First-Run International backers, and I still have not received my pen, or an email with tracking info. I sent you an email as per instructions. Please respond. I know you are busy, thank you for the help.

    11. Creator Stephen on December 22, 2012

      Got my pen a few days ago, and it's awesome. Knurling + clip pen? What? That's sounds awesome! I'd totally buy a second one, just for that. Like previous people, I wish I had bought two, not because I think someone is going to steal it, but because it's really cool! Thanks for making such an awesome pen!

    12. Creator Susan Baroncini-Moe on December 22, 2012

      Hey Ian, I got my pen awhile back and wanted to tell you that I keep getting compliments on it. It's so pretty and writes beautifully. Thanks for being a great Kickstarter and creating an awesome product. Looking forward to your next design!

    13. Creator Paul Good (deleted) on December 22, 2012

      Received my pen (2nd batch) yesterday....love it!!!.....would be very interested in a knurled barrel w/clip.....,great craftsmanship....thanks!!

    14. Creator Zack Jones on December 22, 2012

      I got mine earlier this week (2nd batch) I wish now I had ordered two instead of one. My wife really likes the pen and I'm afraid I'm going to lose it to her. Oh well it is Christmas time :). Thanks for making such a great pen!

    15. Creator Matthew on December 22, 2012

      Got my pens in yesterday. They are great!
      I was in the second run.

    16. Creator yehudah on December 22, 2012

      Hey Ian,
      Got my pen several days ago and I am impressed. This is a quality pen that employs one of my favorite tactical cartridges in the Fisher Space Pen. I can also see a knurled grip with clip model.
      Onward and upward,
      Thanks again,
      Yochanan
