Wink What's new?? Pen components!!!

Yes, there are NEW pen "kits" that we just received via air shipment. Berea has introduced the ballpoint version of the Triton (I LIKE this one):
http://www.exoticblanks.com/index.ph...mart&Itemid=60

Also, the Ballpoint version of the Rinehart:
http://www.exoticblanks.com/index.ph...mart&Itemid=60

In addition, there is an updated version of the standard "flat-top" rollerball (I believe these may be the "thinner" rollerball and fountain pen we have been wanting!! I've only made a couple so far.) : http://www.exoticblanks.com/index.ph...mart&Itemid=60

And the fountain pen: http://www.exoticblanks.com/index.ph...mart&Itemid=60

This style also has a ballpoint, though the centerband does not "exactly match" the rest:
http://www.exoticblanks.com/index.ph...mart&Itemid=60

In addition, we have added the Chrome, satin chrome version of the Berea sierra: http://www.exoticblanks.com/index.ph...mart&Itemid=60

And we have a couple "flavors" of the sierra vista that we will be keeping in stock now:
http://www.exoticblanks.com/index.ph...mart&Itemid=60

For those who have watched Exotics grow, you will note Dawn has re-arranged the site a little and added "suites". This area shows the pen "families" where you can get "matching" fountain, rollerball, ballpoint bodies--check it out and let us know what you think: http://www.exoticblanks.com/index.ph...mart&Itemid=60


On a different note, we just received several hundred lucite blanks to restore our stock (she tells me there are 30+ color choices):
http://www.exoticblanks.com/index.ph...=127&Itemid=60

There are also about a thousand RhinoPlastic blanks coming---which will be posted on the site after we return from the AAW show next weekend (June 24-26) We hope to sell quite a few AT the show. The same is true of the nice shipment we received from Jeff Powell--they will be added later in the month. Also we thank JohnU for another shipment of feathers that we received--some were up on Exotics for a few hours earlier this week--don't look now, though, they sold in less than four hours---John makes BEAUTIFUL feather blanks---we really enjoy seeing them!!! (IF you are going to the AAW show, we have a FEW feather blanks that will be available there---I'd try VERY early Friday morning, if I were you!!)

In the "close shave" category---I forgot to mention the new Razor stand (much larger, nicer version) also arrived, you can see that here:
http://www.exoticblanks.com/index.ph...mart&Itemid=60

On a "house-keeping" note, all these additions require discount schedules and other software changes. So, if you order and things don't "look right" with the order, just note it in the comments and Dawn or I will manually check your pricing before we ship.

One other 'VALUE ADDED!!" I have made several of these new kits, without following the instructions, to see what can go wrong. As a result, I will be including a printed sheet with each order for kits. This will explain the areas that I see as potential pitfalls. The instructions that are shown on the site will not include these "insights", but our customers will have the benefit of my mistakes, and their corrections, without having to ruin a kit.

I think that's it---all comments and questions on the new products are invited.

We will not be shipping from Thursday (June 23) to Sunday (June 26). (As I have said, we will be having a booth at the AAW show) And, of course, we are holding Canadian shipments until there is a chance they will make their destination (I expect UPS or FedEx will announce some special--I would, under the circumstances!!!)

Also, if you see the new kits offered by a competitor at a lower price, please PM me---we want to be "in line" with everyone else, but no pricing was suggested to us--so we hope we are "about right"--again I appreciate "informative" PM's!!!

Thanks for reading!!!

I like that term Ed, I think I might plagerize it. It has a better sound to it than the normal term.
