Pen Station attaches your favorite pen to your favorite notebook for safe travel.

An ultra-thin, yet durable, plastic platform makes Pen Station invisible to the writing surface. No weird bumps to write over. Meanwhile, a wide elastic loop secures your pen to the notebook so your pen passenger always arrives safe.

Form follows function with Pen Station. The stealth, angled design deflects other objects in your bag while also complimenting the most sophisticated notebook.

It happens to everyone.

You go to pull out your notebook, your journal, or your notepad and you don’t have a pen. Try your pockets. Try your bag. Try your bag pockets. You don’t have one. It’s time to ask a stranger.

Pen station attaches your favorite pen to your favorite notebook so you never have to worry about getting derailed again.

 

The patent pending design utilizes a thin, dense HDPE plastic to reduce friction as pens travel into the Pen Station platform.

Meanwhile, at their center, pens are secured by a wide elastic loop preventing them from being ejected even during the bumpiest of rides.

 

We’ve tried every other pen holder on the market. You know what they all have in common? A big weird bump you need to navigate over while writing on pages.
Not Pen Station. The ultra-thin HDPE plastic platform is invisible to the writing surface.

Collision Deflection

Soft angles, round corners and a flexible platform allow Pen Station to be held in your hand or pushed through your bag without fear of a jarring impact.

 

The subtle, timeless design of Pen Station compliments any notebook and any pen.

Frequently Asked Questions

Is Pen Station Reusable / Can I move it from notebook to notebook?

It is not reusable or movable from book to book. The adhesive on Pen Station is a pretty strong industrial adhesive made by 3M. We tested many adhesives, some reusable, and we settled on the best permanent adhesive for uncompromising pen security.

Can I stick Pen Station to my iPad and keep a stylus in it?

Hey, great idea. Yes!

Can I get more than 10 Pen Stations?

Sure. Just choose the reward for 10 Pen Stations, and add $3 for every additional Pen Station you'd like to get.
