October 2016 iPenBox
"Trick or Treat"

trick-or-treat-1.jpg

This month your iPenBox is full of treats, and also one trick - a magic trick! President of iPenstore, Jim Evers, loves magic, and he is very excited to have an excuse to put one into the iPenBox this month. Now, about those treats! We had been hearing very good reviews for the Schneider Easy Fountain Pens, and when we saw there was one with a bat theme, we couldn't resist for our October Box. In an effort to get the latest and greatest into the box, we included an Autopoint pencil- our newest line of writing instruments.
