A swap for fountain pen users. This is a Letters & Writing category swap. The intent is to send letters of substance. Send one quality letter, written in fountain pen, to one partner.

If you don't have a fountain pen, maybe this is your incentive to try one. Inexpensive fountain pens are easily available. Pilot Varsity pens can be had for a few dollars at many of the major US office supply stores.

I'm going to set up one swap for each of the next several months and see if there are any takers. If so, I'd like to continue setting up a monthly swap. If you have any questions, please PM me - I don't always get back to check the comments.

Hey maybe I'll try it! I've never used one but we do sell them at OfficeMax. Fountain pens always remind me of my favorite college professor, he always used one. :)

Platnium Preppy are also at most office supply stores and only a couple bucks :)

I love Preppy's. I've only seen them around here at art stores, tho. You're lucky if you can find them at office stores! You can buy an o-ring and some silicone grease (scuba shops or online) and turn it into an eyedropper so you can fill the whole back end of the pen with ink.

With finger problems due to my cancer I would muck up my own conversation but I know you can! I cheat and get mine pre converted from Goulet pens for just a couple bucks extra.

I looooove Goulet Pens. They're my latest pusher-man what with their Ink Drop. I just got a Sheaffer 100 from them which I plan to ink for this swap.
