That winter, I finally used the mechanic knitting machine Benoît gave me a few years ago. Thus I was able to dress up warmly the transparent ballpens I had. Then I had the idea to decorate these pens from the inside, to create geometric patterns adapted to this small and cylindric shape.
For 5 months, full-time, I became a pen stylist for transparent ballpens. I did 2200 tries on Photoshop and kept 50.
Of course, I offered my « outfits » to BIC, but unfortunately they declined my proposition.
So I decided to sell them so that they can parade in your hands.
There are three types : the chatty, the handsome and the useful ones.
Here are a few examples, they are sold, with the others
at L'Atelier Papeterie 97 rue de Belleville Paris 19 (only there).
You will find them next to my notepads and copybooks whose geometric pattern covers were designed while I was creating new patterns for the pens.
A decorated pen is 3.50€. Careful : the 50 designs on sale are all different, therefore unique.
The chatty ones
The handsome ones
The useful ones
Here come the well-dressed biros !
I didn't think about the fact that pupils only use blue pens to write. I use red and green biros to write work papers.
So I had to complete the collection.
Here come the 4 collections of 5 biros dressed for every season.
They are sold at the same place. The pack of 5 costs €12.3.
You can also buy each biro of this new 20-biro collection separately. (The first ones are sold out)
