      Celebrate 10 Years of Fountain Pen Day!

      What began as a small idea among a group of friends soon became a holiday that the pen community anticipates every year. Fountain Pen Day was originally a response to days that acknowledges the fountain pen's more well-known cousins (i.e. pencils and ballpoints) but has grown to be a community-led movement that brings businesses, enthusiasts, and brands together.

      In fact, Fountain Pen day's reach now extends to all parts of the globe and the advent of Instagram and other social media platforms has made it that much easier to share the real-time enthusiasm of our pen community. We hope that you, too, will be partaking in the celebrations on November 5 this year!

      At Esterbrook, we are official sponsors of Fountain Pen Day and feel especially honored to have this role, as it is FPD's tenth anniversary this year. Our very own Cary Yeager, Sales Manager for Kenro Industries, used his ingenuity to build FPD from "just an idea" to a global phenomenon.

      To commemorate this day, Esterbrook will be launching a new Estie. We can't wait to share more with you soon and in the meantime, view a preview of the merchandise that will be available for the ten-year celebration at many local retailers.
