Brad is joined by Mike Matteson of Inkdependence this week to recap the Triangle Pen Show, follow-up on the state of the stationery industry, and answer all of your #asktpa.
What does the future hold for the stationery industry? Brad and Myke look into their crystal balls, and inevitably get things wrong.
Brad is back from Houston, and is heading to Raleigh! We catch up on his travels, new Kickstarter projects, and the latest from Retro 51.
Do you really want to hear how Brad packs for a pen shop visit? Apparently so, as he lays out his gear for a trip to Dromgoole’s in Houston. He and Myke also dig into new Kaweco and Pelikan special Editions, and answer all of your #asktpa questions.
Two weeks between recording gives the boys a lot to talk about! Everything from new product talk, to Sailors, Pelikans, Kanilea pens, and more. Join in on the fun!
Interested in making your own fountain pens? We follow-up on our previous #asktpa with feedback from two just-getting-started pen makers. We also talk about the challenges of good mechanical pencil design, and pick the perfect pen for a Park Ranger.
It’s new notebook day on the podcast, as Brad and Myke discuss a slew of new releases crossing our desks. Limited editions were also a hot topic, this week hotter than most with the launch of the Retro 51 “The System” rollerball.
Brad and Myke are back from Atlanta and recap the best show ever. At least until the next one!
We are live! Thank you to all of our Kickstarter backers for making this live episode possible. Listen in as Ana, Brad, and Myke discuss the Atlanta Pen Show and interview Jim Rouse from Franklin-Christoph and Lisa Vanness from Vanness Pens.
Brad prepped for the Atlanta Pen Show by buying all of the things beforehand. Myke showed some responsibility by making a game plan for the show. It’s time to get hyped!
