      Join Us at the Philly Pen Show!

      With the worst of the travel restrictions of the pandemic behind us, we're back in full-swing for another year of, you guessed it, pen shows! Now, I know you're probably wondering why you need to attend a pen show when, like everyone else, most of your shopping is done online these days. But we're here to tell you that shows are a vital part of the overall pen collecting experience and something that can be enjoyed from the first-time novice to the experienced collector alike!

      Pen shows have traditionally had a bit of a stuffy feel to them; but, rest assured, this isn't your grandpa's pen show! Over the years, these trade events have grown to be a rich, complex, and electrifying occasion in cities across the country. Philadelphia's show is the first in the calendar year and really sets the tone for what we can expect throughout 2023.

      At any given show, you're getting not just going to see pens, you're going to step into a world of people just like you. People that love the feel, mechanics, and history that surrounds pens. You'll find people who write, journal, and make art. You'll make friends, play with pens you've only read about, and try inks, papers, and nibs you've only read about. Stepping into a pen show is stepping into a world that's tailor-made for you and your passions.

      And yes, there's usually some free swag to pick up too!

      So, here's your invite: Join us this weekend at the Philadelphia Pen Show and make sure to stop by the Esterbrook table. We'll have all nibs available for testing (including a special NEW RELEASE at the show!). We'll also have our latest products, experts to answer your questions, and Josh Lax of JJ Lax Pen Co on hand to grind your nibs.

      Buy your tickets via the link below. Can make it? Follow us on Instagram to see our table in action this weekend (and make sure to tag us to be featured if you do attend the show!).
