If you can’t beat ’em join ’em

24Nov08

  I hate to admit it, but I have finally succumbed. I bought some wooden pens and matching boxes that were imported from China. For the price, they are actually not too bad. I get a lot of comments from people who say they love my laser engraved pens, but just can’t bring themselves to plunk down that much money for a pen. I understand that. I  have no problem with that.

 I have been working on some new designs to engrave these pens. The import prices will let me put together an affordable package of an engraved pen with a matching engraved wooden box.

Here is the first new design

 I’m happy with the results, and would like to know what you think. I spend many hours preparing these designs to get a good 3D effect. This teacher pen box was certainly no exception.

And now for the pen.

  I had to change the intro to my web site. I had claimed that all of the pens on the site were hand made by Wooden Pen Works, obviously that is no longer the case. I have created a seperate section for the imports so there will be no confusion as to what the visitor is looking at. I’m certainly not trying to pull a fast one here.

  I hope my customers will see it as a good value, with a nice pen and box and some superior engraving.

The plan is to continuously add new designs, so be sure to visit the web site often.
