We have a limited number of Early Bird pens that will ship between mid-November and December 15th! These will make great holiday gifts!

These unique pens are machined from stainless steel, brass, and aluminum. The body is recycled genuine circuit board that is cast in a high-quality clear UV resistant polyester resin and then machined with precision.

 

 

 

 

Machined Components

These pens come in three different types of machined metal components: 303 Stainless Steel, C3604 Brass, and aircraft grade 6061 Aluminum.

The machined aluminum pen is much lighter than the steel and brass pens weighing only 28 grams (0.98 oz) compared to the 56 gram (1.98 oz) steel pen.

Rollerball Pens

The rollerball pen comes with a black Schmidt 5888 refill. The refills are available in fine, medium, or broad for optimum and personalized writing performance. You will be able to choose from these options at the end of the campaign.

Fountain Pens

Our circuit board pens are also available as fountain pens for the same price as the rollerball! The fountain nib that comes with the pen is an Iridium Point Germany (IPG) steel nib. Nib upgrades are available (see below). You will be able to choose the fountain pen style or the rollerball style for each of your pens at the end of the campaign.

The fountain pen includes an ink cartridge and a fountain pen ink converter. The ink converters “convert” fountain pens from using ink cartridges to using bottled ink instead. The converter has a small reservoir that contains the ink that you draw into it as illustrated. The converter can be removed from the fountain pen, so you can still use ink cartridges if you choose. The push-in style fountain pen converter is pushed onto the nib section of the pen, the same way an ink cartridge would be pushed onto the pen.
