What are you most proud of? The pens are manufactured by Retro 1951 as Fountain, Gel and Ballpoint pens available with mechanical pencil sets. I use the Gel and Ballpoint pens (own about 8). I gave my family different colors for Christmas. Smoothest flow, non scratchy writing action. Best pens I've ever used. The Black ink writes Black, not bubbly gray. Different colors, textures, ink colors (blue, black and red). Amazon.com What advice would you give someone starting this project? The stationary is from Expressionery.com; very good quality paper. I'm very proud when I give someone a note on these to styles. I picked a formal single letter monogram and a casual spring print. I am very happy to have found both the pens and paper and I try to tell everyone I know about them to keep them in business.
