Enjoying a quality piece of stationary is nothing to be ashamed of. Taking your shiny new pencil case out of your shiny new backpack was one of the only things that made the first day back at school bearable.

Their Brass bullet pencil is easy on the eye and writes like a dream. The Journal Shop has them.
