Did you know Fountain Pen Day is on November 6th? This will be the ninth year of its celebration. You can learn more at fountainpenday.org. Flax Pen To Paper is a sponsor of Fountain Pen Day and we're going to celebrate by putting most of our fountain pens on sale in-store on November 6th and 7th. We're also going to have drawings for a Cross ATX fountain pen (courtesy of A.T. Cross and Flax Pen To Paper) and other items. We will draw from registrants for this special event. (that means you'll have to register specifically for the drawing). ENTRIES CLOSED AT 5:30 p.m. - GOOD LUCK! Check winner announcements on the Giveaways page.
In the meantime, if you'd like to order custom holiday cards or printed material, please stop in or make an appointment. We can also serve as your concierge for gifts, stationery and more to make your life easier. We appreciate your support, as that's what will help brick and mortar stores like Flax remain here for you. Please consider us at your service!
We've taken some special precautions in the midst of the pandemic, including asking customers who try the fine writing instruments to wear gloves (which we provide). We've had a little "pushback" but we do this for everyone's safety. Today, an ink refill inexplicably exploded. Our gloved customer was unaffected - and we appreciated the cooperation with our earlier request.
We're looking forward to 2021 and just received our stock of datebooks and planners from Graphic Image, Filofax, Letts of London, Paperblanks and Quo Vadis (among others). We haven't listed these on the website but can assist you in-store, by phone or if you (email to) firstname.lastname@example.org. Supplies are limited.
