Need to add to your Summer Reading list? How about Refill, the Pen Addict members newsletter!

Rotring 600 Fountain Pen

It seems that every summer we all search for the perfect reading material for our vacations, or to pair with that weekend cup of coffee. Refill, the Pen Addict members newsletter, can help you in that search!

Each weekend, I publish a 500-1000 word essay or review, often on the hot topic of the week, the state of the industry, building a business, or any number of related topics. Additionally, I link to 10-15 articles I find interesting and add my own commentary to each - Ink Links on steroids, if you will.

But wait, that’s not all! I mix in personal notes regularly, including things I’m reading or listening to, recap the previous week at The Pen Addict, do a big monthly member giveaway, have a quarterly charity donation, write up pen show trip reports, sneak preview upcoming Pen Addict goods, offer Pen Addict shop discounts, and plenty more. This is also an ad-free space - no sponsors or affiliate links in any issue of Refill.

And let me be perfectly clear here: This is my job, and Refill is part of how I make a living. Your support means the world to me, and I never take it for granted. I work hard to give you a great bang for the buck, and have fun doing it. I think you will have fun being a part of it too.

For $5 a month, or $48/year, you can join over 500 current Pen Addict members, get something awesome in your inbox each week, and support me and this site directly.

Hit this link to find out more, check out a sample issue, and subscribe. You get access to the full archive as well, with 128 published issues to catch up on!

And thank you, once again, for allowing me to do this for a living. Y’all are truly the best community on the planet.

Refill #103: Check Your Spam Folder

I sent out Issue #103 of Refill yesterday morning at 10 AM Eastern as usual, but an inordinate number landed in members spam folders, myself included.

I have a ticket open with Mailchimp to see what could have caused this all of a sudden. In the meantime, if you didn’t receive yesterday’s issue check your spam folder, and be sure to add the From address of the email to your email contact list.

If for some reason you can’t find it at all get in touch and I will forward over the link.
