The Federalist Pens Papers#9
As I write this, I am thinking that once again I am wishing Pen Pals (and now loved ones) a safe weekend! A couple weeks ago, it was Harvey in Texas- now we have Irma in Florida! I have family on the East Coast of the peninsula, and worried for them as well! Everyone should try to be as safe as possible! This includes heeding evacuation warnings (Yes- you can replace your pen pen collection... but not you/loved ones!)
Be safe this weekend!
Best wishes to all!

New Lamy Products!
This month, Lamy is launching a new product in the US- the much anticipated Aion Model Collection! Available as a FP, BP, and RB Pen, this all aluminum model has a very modern, clean look! The nib is also shaped differently, though the feed is similar to the Safari/Al-Star Pens (This means that 1.1/1.5/1.9 "Joy" nibs can be swapped in this pen!)
Olivesilver Aion FP
Two new models to the Studio Collection- a very nice "Racing Green" color to the standard collection, and a special LE "Piano Black" model! The LE model will come with a 14k nib, and have a list price of $195 ($200 cheaper than the Dialog3 with similar finish!)
Racing Green Studio FP
LE Piano Black Studio FP
We are anticipating these products to arrive in a couple of weeks! The new Lamy USA distributor is based in NYC, and their warehouse is in North Jersey! This is going to be great for Mid-Atlantic dealers like me- who will get products the next business day after orders! There have been price increases on some products- mainly higher-end pens, and refills/accessories (Safari/Al-Star Pens have the same list price as before...)
All for now Pen Pals! See You Next Month!
