August 2016 iPenBox
"Back to School"

international-school-bus.jpg

Summer is drawing to a close and many people are getting ready to head back to school this month. We designed this month's box to reflect the supplies needed for another school year filled with excitement and success! Additionally, this month is another premium fountain pen month! The Lamy ABC Fountain Pen is a high quality beginner fountain pen. The rubber grip section is comfortable, the cube shaped end will keep it from rolling off your desk, and the maple wooden barrel is sturdy and will bring to mind neat rows of wooden student desks from your school days of yesterday. Even if you aren't going back to school this August, you will certainly not feel left out of the excitement with this month's iPenBox!
