Philadelphia Pen Collectors Group

Welcome all new and old members!

Welcome to the Philadelphia Pen Collectors Group website.  Our main interest is in fountain pens.  That’s modern fountain pens, vintage fountain pens, fountain pen history, fountain pen ephemera, fountain pen ink, and the use and enjoyment of fountain pens.  Collectors of pencils, ballpoints, dip pens and other writing instruments are also welcome.

Next Club Meeting

Join us for a Zoom meeting on July 31st at 7:30

Sometimes we have a presenter speaking on some aspect of fountain pen collecting and sometimes we don’t. For our July 31st meeting, we are inviting YOU to be our presenters. Join our Zoom meeting, talk with your friends, hear what they have to say about favorite pens, inks, paper, using your pens, good pen books or any newly-made pen-related discoveries, new ideas for using pens, anything pen-related. With you as the contributors, it promises to be a great evening of pen chat. And, there’s always the possibility that we found someone to give a special presentation…. We can only wait and see, so join us on  from the comfort of your own home and see what the evening brings.
