Hey Everybody! It’s been a crazy busy month and it’s finally over. Now for another crazy busy month (aren’t they all?).
First – Every month as a way of saying thank you to everybody who contributes to the scholarship fund we give away a custom pen credit of $225. The winner can take that and get something for $225, or pitch in some more and get something a bit more custom. Free nib grind, free shipping. This month, out of 37 entries, #31 got it. Congrats to Pamela B! I’ll send you an email in just a minute.
Wait – how can I win a credit towards a pen? I’m glad you asked! You can donate a few bucks and get a gift of postcards or notebooks, or just donate without requesting a gift, or you can enter for free. To enter for free just send us a postcard with your name and email address, and “FREE ENTRY TO NEWTON PENS RAFFLE”, mailed to
PO BOX 6084
Hot Springs, AR. 71902
And remember – every penny we raise goes to high school students going to college.
Second – I’ve updated the store page with current inventory available now. There’s also a special pen up for auction right now too. It’s an Orville made with some Omas Arco brown celluloid. That ends July 8th. After that I’ll be uploading more pens for auction. Every wondered how you could help out with the scholarship fund raising? You could always donate a pen or two. We’ve gotten everything from TWSBIs to Montblancs, Nakaya and Omas, and a slew of Lamy and inexpensive Chinese pens, too. We’ll also gladly take inks, cases, paper, and other stationery items. Just send me a note – email@example.com
Third– We just got back from Saint Louis for the 2018 pen show! We had a great time and met lots of great people. We took the boys out to the City Museum which was a total blast! You can see lots of photos on their Instagram feed.
We also got to see some of Ralph’s flexible and modified nibs (Regalia Writing Labs).
Last – I think that’s most everything. Small things – I have a custom acrylic coming in a few months. It’ll be a black and white pinstripe similar in pattern to the Arco colors. Totally stoked about that one.
My next pen show is going to be at Dallas.
I’m sure there’s more that I’m forgetting, but as always if you have any questions, send me a note – firstname.lastname@example.org
