15 tickets – Dec 9th
21 – Dec 10th!
This month instead of one pen going out – there will be TWO. So far you’ve all raised $3194 to give away to several lucky students! Thank you all so much! And the year is only half done!
One pen made by myself, and the other a pen donated by a friend from FPN specifically for the scholarship. Thanks!
One winner – two pens.
What will I be making? I don’t know – that’s up to the winner. The only restriction is that it needs to be made from one of these cool materials shown below. Well – you don’t HAVE to pick one of these – but they sure are pretty. :) If you do choose any of these, there are size restrictions due to the diameter of some of the rods. We’ll discuss that once there’s a winner.
Here they are…
First up – a couple of Italian acrylics. Blue Cowrie and Venetian Gold.
Then some Sheaffer rods! These are leftovers from the Balance II pens Sheaffer made in the late 90s. Marbled Amber Glow, Marbled Cobalt Glow, and Jungle Green.
Sheaffer Tiger Eye.
I don’t know what to call these except awesome. Black and white chunk casein, Tiffany casein, and yellow and green casein. Or maybe tan and green? There’s only a little bit of each of these and we’re limited with what can be made, but we’ll discuss that when somebody wins.
And here’s one I think will look cool. It’s a new black and sand ripple ebonite. This can be paired with black, or with solid sand for really cool effect either way.
And I even have a tiny bit of purple web celluloid left over.
What’s that second pen? An Edison Pearl in purple web celluloid.
Very Cool! Here it is.
It comes with a 1.1 two tone steel nib.
Rules are the same as before -
Raffle tickets are $10 each. All you have to do to buy a ticket is send $10 to email@example.com using paypal. When you buy a ticket you’ll be given a number based on the order that you bought it. If you’re the 3rd person to buy a raffle ticket, then you’ll be #3, and so on.
The nib choice is totally up to the winner as well. You can choose steel, any tip size, any grind, or 18k gold, any tip size, any grind. The winner will have the option of taking the gold nib with the cost coming out of the raffle winnings, paying for the gold nib, or taking a steel nib.
The Pearl will go as is.
I’ll use a random number picker and will have it pick from the numbers available. So if only 73 people buy tickets, the number picker will choose from 1-73.
So if all that sounds good then you can buy as many raffle tickets as you want payable through paypal to firstname.lastname@example.org. Be sure not to send payment to my other email address. A smart way to buy multiple tickets might be to spread them out several days apart.
If you have any questions or concerns please let me know and I’ll get back with you asap.
This purchase is not tax deductible.
Raffle ends 9pm central US time, Sunday, December 22nd.
