November, 2015 iPenBox
"Family, Friends and Food"

november-ipenbox500.jpg

It's November and time to start getting ready for the holiday season. Soon we will be celebrating with family, friends, and of course a lot of food! What better way to start your November than with an iPenBox full of stationery, pens, and ink to get you ready for this busy time of year? 

The ink sample of the month is one of the ten new Shimmer colors by Diamine.  The shimmer in the ink makes us think of celebrations and the sparkle of lights. 

The fountain pen this month is a special edition purple Kaweco Sport. We sent one of two Limited Edition colors: Metallic Violet, or Royal Purple. The Kaweco Sport follows the original 1935 iconic octogonal design. Capped, it's a compact size pocket pen.  Posted, you have a full-sized pen for writing. If you're new to fountain pens, don't worry - we included a link to our helpful guides for filling and caring for your fountain pen.
