Just as important as it is to have your perfect pen, we know it’s important to have the perfect carrying case, too. This week we’ve tested and reviewed a local brand made here in Arizona; Dee Charles Designs. Created by two individuals who share a love for fountain pens, Dee Charles Designs is dedicated to protecting your pens. This we took a Dee Charles Designs Single Pen Sleeve out for a test run.

Dee Charles Designs Pen Carrying Cases come in an assortment of unique colors. Also, each case comes with different color stitching choices to accent the leather or choose a neutral matching color stitch. We chose to review a Sunrise Blue Single Sleeve Pen Carrying Case. This sleeve comes in a striking tan leather with light blue stitching along the edges. As well, you will find the ingenious Dee Charles Designs logo stamped onto the bottom of the case. Each Dee Charles Carrying Case is shipped in it’s own durable box with the Dee Charles logo foiled on the lid.
The Single Sleeve Pen Case measures in at 6 1/2 inches long. Since most pens measure to be less than 6 inches, this is the perfect length to fit most pens. Designed to be capable of housing your bigger pens as well, The Single Sleeve is 1 3/4 inches wide. While in comparison to the Aston Leather One Pen Slip Case, that’s an extra 1/4 inch. Also, the Dee Charles Designs Single Pen Sleeve is 3/16 of an inch thick, due to Dee Charles Designs’ commitment to only using the highest quality leather. That’s an entire 1/8 of an inch thicker than the Aston Single Sleeve. On top of that, Dee Charles Designs Single Pen Sleeves are made in America and costs only $19.80 USD for such amazing quality.
However, the important question is how it protects your pen. In short, your pens will be safe with a Carrying Case from Dee Charles Designs. We had one of our employees carry one of these cases with him over this last weekend, with an Aurora 88 Demonstrator fountain pen. He was amazed at the quality of the leather, and upon inspection on Monday, the pen showed no signs of wear.
Conclusion about the Dee Charles Designs Single Pen Sleeve
If you’re looking to protect your Every Day Carry, whether it’s an Aurora 88 or not, we recommend a Dee Charles Designs Single Pen Sleeve. Don’t forget to take a look at the Dee Charles Designs Double Pen sleeve as well with it’s unique dividing stitch.

OMG!!! HOW BEAUTIFUL WAY TO CARRY YOUR FOUNTAIN PENS AND SAFE.
Right now I use a Nock Sinclair and Lookout. I would love to try a leather case though
I’m curious as to the type of leather used in this case. Is it full-grain leather? If so, I wonder if they have a veg tanned option
I wouldn’t mind seeing more on pen storage.
I won’t say no if you ship that with my Sailor Pro Gear Slim in Purple Cosmos when it’s in!! Thanks for the review and the giveaway!
Nice. Would love a review of Robert Oster Sublime.
Awesome. Love the color!
I still haven’t pulled the trigger on a new pen case, and this looks like a great option!

Any purple Colour! I would also like to see if the to see the new Diamine Shimmers compared to the ones already on the market & see the differences. God Bless & Love You Bunches!!!
Classic design & rich feel, with deserving pens, ultimate couple!

I can’t pick a favorite ink. Heck, I’m not sure I can pick a favorite BRAND!
I’d like to see more reviews on things that aren’t well-known in the community, like this cool pen sleeve!
My favorite pen case is from Royce. It’s well designed and protects my pen very well
My favorite ink is Scabiosa by Rohrer and Klingner
I don’t have a lot of experience with pen cases. The only one I own is a MontBlanc which is a hard case with a lid. It’s pretty safe, and I can carry 3 pens in it so, that’s fine for me.
My favorite ink is Diamine Oxblood. Thanks for the opportunity!
