About

 

America's Original Pen Company Returns!

 Esterbrook Pens,  the iconic brand of fine writing instruments, originally established in 1858, is being revived by Harpen Brand Holdings, LLC.

I have over 20 years of experience in the writing instrument industry, most notably as the founder and former president of the revived Conklin Pen Company. I formed Harpen Branding Holdings, LLC which has since acquired the trademark rights to  Esterbrook , one of America's most recognized pen brands.

We will producing the new Esterbrook product line  with some of  the leading pen factories in the world .  Our pens  are created utilizing both  original Esterbrook pen designs as well as new contemporary designs so  that we can offer the consumer both vintage and modern styles to choose from.

With this project, we are looking to raise funds in order to have our  Esterbrook writing instruments manufactured by  our suppliers and to build our inventory needs for both  retail and online sales.

We have launched the Esterbrook Brand this past month with two new collections: The Esterbrook J Series, and the Deluxe Limited Edition Fountain Pen

Risks and challenges

The luxury pen market is very competitive, with over 25 significant brands competing for market share. Brands like Mont Blanc, Parker, Waterman, and Cross are some of the major players in the industry. While Esterbrook was one of the most famous American pen brands, they have been out of the market for over 30 years. Our challenge is to revive this brand, utilizing the good will of the Esterbrook name, along with high quality products based on the original Esterbrook designs.
We feel confident, given our prior success in reviving vintage pen brands, that we will be successful in achieving our goal.
