Onward and Upward!
WOW! Three years in already this July, and look what you have helped me accomplish! 20+ Pen Brands, 10+ Ink Brands, and 5+ Paper/Accessories! We have added Pilot, Kaweco, Pineider and Marlen Pen Brands! We have added Diamine and Iroshizuku (Pilot) Ink Brands! Got Inky Fingers? We even have Amodex Ink Stain Removal Products added to the store this year!
Looking for more? No Problem! As I write this, I am planning to switch store platforms this summer!
3DCart was a good platform at first, but my store traffic has greatly increased! Now, I am paying double/triple what I did when the store first opened! I am looking at more “friendly” platforms. Look for a whole new store “Look” this summer!
Speaking of store: I am also looking into Pop-Up/Temporary Store opportunities! Philly Area Pen Pals have been hungry for a B&M Store for a while. The success of my venture will greatly determine whether I take the risk to open a permanent physical store! Stay Tuned!
