September 2016 iPenBox
"Metal"

This month we celebrate our first anniversary since we started the iPenBox!  We decided to stretch our budget this month and put in a super premium fountain pen to thank all of our customers for making our subscription box such a success. From the feedback that receive, the fountain pen that we include each month is the overwhelmingly favorite item. We have a lot of great ideas in the pipeline for this year, including our own line of fountain pen friendly pocket notebooks! So stay tuned for what we have in store, and thanks again for helping to make the iPenBox such a success!

Caran d'ache Chromatics Ink Sample, Magnetic Blue

Our artist, Tiffany loves Caran d'Ache's Chromatic Inks. Each ink in the collection of 12 colors is a vivid color inspired by the prism. Magnetic Blue is a great blue-black ink that has a touch of gray.  If you like the sample and are interested in a full bottle, you'll love the beautiful Italian tilted glass bottle.  It looks like a work of art and is a stunning addition to any desk!
