"Ice"

Happy New Year! We hope 2016 brings you much happiness, good health, and success.  After an unusually warm December (thanks El Nino!) January has finally brought the ice and snow here to Michigan! The theme this month is Ice, and we chose clear products, products that referred to ice or the new year for this month's theme.

 

The 2016 Standard Memorandum Notebook

Inspired by pocket journals from the early 1900s, The Standard Memorandum is designed to chronicle one year of your life. Word. Notebooks has once again teamed up with designer and illustrator Jon Contino to create a modern version of this storied notebook. The 2016 Standard Memorandum is the latest incarnation of the exceedingly popular daily pocket journal, and it’s ready to tackle your new year. Just like with the original, simply jot down a line or two every day for a year, and you'll be left with a memento you can save or pass down. It’s a year of your life on paper.

Noodler's Polar Ink Sample

Noodler's inks are a favorite among fountain pen enthusiasts as one of the premier brands of ink.  We sent samples of Noddler's Polar Ink in Polar Blue and Polar Green.  This ink is considered to be "bulletproof," which refers to any Noodler's Ink that resists all the known tools of a forger, UV light, UV light wands, bleaches, alcohols, solvents, petrochemicals, oven cleaners, carpet cleaners, and carpet stain lifters! They are also waterproof once permitted to dry upon cellulose paper.  

This ink is also just about unfreezable and "made for the coldest North American, Russian and Scandinavian conditions."

 

Tombow AirPress Ballpoint, Clear 

The Tombow Airpress Ballpoint Pen features patented pressurizing technology allows writing in unusual situations, such as writing overhead, in dusty locations on on wet paper. The internal mechanism pressurizes the refill with one click for up to 492 ft. of writing. The see-through window on the barrel shows the pressurizing system. Rubberized barrel is easy to grip, creating a comfortable and safe hold. Spring loaded wire clip is durable enough to attach to most anything.
