    I’m curious – why is your bottle of Diamine Red Dragon different then the normal bottles? Mine came in the standard clear bottle with the black cap and black a grey label. Yours looks all fancy instead.

      Diamine has changed the outside of the bottles! We’ve already received some bottles with this new packaging (both the box and the label on the bottle), but it may be a few months (more?) before we’ve changed over completely. Ink is still the same! 🙂

      We don’t repair pens ourselves. If you have a vintage pen, someone local we can recommend is jeffkevlar@gmail.com (Jeffry Fridfinnson), or if it’s a modern pen that is still in production, you can contact us for details on whether or not it’s under warranty or can be repaired by the manufacturer. Hope that helps!

    I used to shop at another well-known online retailer in the US, but on a whim, I searched for an online fountain pen retailer in Canada, and came across Wonderpens.

    I haven’t bought anything from that other retailer since.

    Even though I’m in Vancouver and y’all are all the way out there in Toronto, I think of you as *my* local pen shop. The photos of Chicken the cat are just an extra bonus.

    A belated Happy Fountain Pen day, and I hope you have many more successful years in business.

      What a wonderful sentiment – you’re too kind! This is probably the highest compliment we could receive, being the local pen shop of fellow stationery and pen nuts out there. One of my favourite things about running a shop like this, though, is being able to share a few snapshots of the shop, behind the scenes, and even behind the shop in how our tiny family has been welcomed into this incredible community.

      We love hearing that people are following along with our story as it’s being written. It’s been a whirlwind of a ride these last three years, and we’re hoping with folks like you out there we’ll make it for three more.

      I hope one day if you’re ever in our neck of the woods, you’ll stop by to say hello – to us and Chicken! Although Chicken has already grown up to be sleek and stealthy and a bit of an unruly cat, haha! And happy Fountain Pen Day to you as well 🙂
