A Space Oddity

I'm told Pelikano recently sponsored an internet competition for young people, entitled "Color your own Pelikano". So, just what was the favorite color for the popular school and young people's fountain pen in 2007?

The envelope please . . .

. . . and the winner is: Deep Space Black.

The barrel and clip of this newest Pelikano is as black as can be, while the glittering silver-coloured stainless steel cap shines all the brighter in contrast. The appearance is just as forward-looking as the modern technology and clever details of this writing instrument: the ergonomic profile of the grip, the dynamic clip and the sturdy, smoothly gliding nib are exemplary features of a design that has been thought through to the smallest detail. (hey, I don't write all of this stuff myself, ya know).

The "Deep Space" black limited edition Pelikano is offered individually, or as part of aa special "value pack," comprising one "Deep Space" Pelikano, one Super-Pirat ink eradicator and a TP/6 six-pack of royal blue ink cartridges.

The new Deep Space Pelikano is only available with a medium nib.

By now, I'm sure you're wondering where you can pick up this new space oddity. The answer's as plain as day: The Pear Tree Pen Company®, of course! Get 'em while you can!

Pretty in Pink

When I think of pink birds, thoughts tend to fly to the flamingo - either the real ones I've seen only in zoos, or the ubiquitous Floridian lawn ornament. Recently, however, I discovered another pink bird that's both more beautiful and more practical: the Pink Pelikan.


Yep, it's true. Pelikan recently introduced a limited edition Pelikano that is oh so pretty in pink. And we've got a small flock of 'em. They're probably not going to last long, and they're only available in a medium nib.

Take a gander at the the photo (another bird reference, get it?) to see how neat it is. I'll replace this tiny photo with a larger copy a little later, but at least you can get an idea of what it looks like.

And, to get yours before they fly away, visit the Pear Tree Pen Company website, or come see us live at the Michigan Pen Show, September 7-8,2007 at the Troy Hilton.

Thanks for stopping by!
