Brad and Myke have returned to their respective homes after a great trip to Chicago. They recap the Field Notes event, talk about Brad’s trip journaling practices, and tease the upcoming Pen Addict Retro 51. There is also a ton of new product discussion, including possible Pelikan price changes. [1]

Further Information[edit]

Ask TPA[edit]

Q: What dry erase markers do you recommend on glass in cold environments that are easy to read from far away?[edit]

Answer: Chalk markers would work well. They have bright colours.

James wants to thank The Pen Addict [2][edit]

Q: Why do some pens stop writing after a couple refills? I've cleaned them between fills. Lamy Safari, Pilot Metro, MnemosyneSingularity [3][edit]

Answer: Sometimes nib and feed aren't cleaned enough. They can get clogged up between tines.

Q: Reaction to a handwritten resume? What part of the job search is best suited to fountain pens. Thank You notes at a minimum? [4][edit]

Answer: There's almost no way to do a handwritten resume right, it might either look too fancy or not right. A handwritten Thank You note would work. As would a general cover letter.
