THE PEN.

       Pen is the essential attribute of our everyday life. It is not just a writing instrument, it is tool for self-expression. It embodies soul and wisdom of its owner. Pen is an extension of your thoughts, goals and achievements.

       Perfection is achieved, not when there is nothing more to add, but when there is nothing left to take away.

PEN STAND. 

        We put a lot of attention to our packaging too, as it makes the first impression on product. Every pen will be packed in beautifully designed box. Also it could be a pen stand on your desk. We made stands in two colors of wood, maple and walnut, for perfect match with your interior.

PEN CASE.  

        To keep your pen safe, we made a minimalistic sleeve. It`s made from a solid piece of vegetable tanned leather, which will gain deep rich tint as time goes by. Every sleeve is hand sewn with great attention to every stitch.

 REWARDS.

ADD-ONS.

       The add-ons are added to your original EXISTING reward that you pledged for. You can add a pen sleeve or an extra refill to your current pledge. To add an add-on, simply include the amount in the pledge.

For example:

        If you made a $55 SENS PEN pledge and you would like to add a pen sleeve (+12$) and an extra refill (+3$), simply add $15 to your pledge and enter "70$" without changing the reward category.

DESIGN. 

       As a starting point we took my grandfathers pen made in USSR and it is still works good. It was heavy, so we`ve made it from aluminum. We refined design a bit and added shiny look for pen. On the cap we’ve made stamping, which provides the necessary adherence while twisting.

Final drawing.

       The pen was reinvented. Our pen is very simple, it consists only from two solid parts. A subtle teardrop shape, gives it a great balance to write, with comfort and steadiness. The pen fits nicely in a hand and does not slip.

       You can choose silver, gold, space grey or black color of pen. If you’d like a more personalized look, you can choose a cap of a different color or switch them between your pens.

WRITING.   

       Not only the pen looks good, it writes even better. We have tried and tested different types of ink and have chosen the best one for you. It is an innovative system for smooth and elegant writing. It combines the convenience of a ballpoint pen with the individual writing characteristics of a fountain pen. Every pen will come with Schmidt P8126 capless roller ball refill, perfect for writing, drawing and taking notes.

       If you will need a replacement, you won`t have problems finding it. Our pen is compatible with any Parker-style G2 refill (more than 100), which is a standard refill for a variety of pens. So whenever you’ll need it, there will always be a plenty to choose from.

MANUFACTURE. 

       During the last 9 months our team was researching, prototyping and working closely with the manufacturer to reach the highest possible quality. The pen is made from aluminum, known for its durability and lightness. Precision machinery and skillful workers are needed to create the perfect writing instrument for you.
