Platinum Preppy Video Script

This is the Platinum Preppy Fountain Pen. This is an inexpensive fountain pen so if you just want to try a fountain pen and see what it's like, this is a great way to do that. It's a clear, transparent, plastic pen. It comes with a plastic clip.

This pen comes in various colors. This is the blue version of the pen. The cap actually just snaps off and it has a matching nib colored to whatever the clip is. So this pen comes in various colors: blue, red, black, orange. This nib and this clip are going to match whatever color pen you have. Then it has just the Preppy logo and Fountain Pen and the informational instructions about the pen here, printed onto the pen. Note: The nibs no longer match the color of the pen and are all silver in color.

You will be able to see the ink flow through the pen in this grip section. As you attach the ink, you unscrew the grip section from the barrel and included with each Preppy Pen is one ink cartridge. Now, you just simply insert that into the pen and then you can put that back on to use the pen. And since it's a cartridge style pen you can use different color inks, you don't have to use the ink that comes with it. You can always replace that with whatever color you would like.

This is a great way to start using a fountain pen, just to see what a fountain pen is like. Get your Preppy Platinum Fountain Pen at PenChalet.com!

Bought these for a cheap pen to play around with eyedropper conversion and some ink samples I had sitting around. Preppys are always a reliable and cheap pen. If you are looking for a starter pen, an everyday carry you won't care too much about misplacing, or to play around with converting a pen these are a great choice.

Great writing, refillable fountain pen for under $5! I have both the medium and the fine nib sizes and they're both good. Haven't tried the XF yet but given how fine the regular F nib is, I don't think I will need to.

I am using this pen for sketching and I love it. I did have a problem inserting the cartridge and looked online for info. Ultimately I just pushed the cartridge in in and it appears that some ink flowed out and is visible. However, the ink flow is fine from the nib.

Preppys are great little pens: excellent for the money. I've had several. However be warned, the red ink is pretty pinkish. My only problem ever with a Platinum product.

I am astonished by how well these cheap $4 pens write. If I'd known about Platinum Preppy years ago when I first attempted to get into fountain pens, I would have been hooked long ago. These write smoothly. No scratchiness. No burping. I converted them into eyedropper pens easily. These pens are a wonderful beginner pen. I'm still a sucker for my Lamy Safari pens, however, these are a nice inexpensive alternative.

These pens are affordable, but each one has variations on how much ink it will distribute.

I bought the Preppy with the 0.3mm point. It is altogether too fine a point for me.
I've since bought one with a medium nib. I'll see how that one behaves.
The pen writes smoothly. The 0.3mm point is rather dry however, and the Platinum blue-black ink is on the pale side, so the line is not the most visible. I've purchased some black ink cartridges this time around.

Only flaw is that the plastic body is thin around the threads where it holds onto the section.
My pen dropped on the floor, and cracked in this area. Thus, the purchase of another pen.

I love my Preppys. I think they're a great value. I have about 5 of them now! No problems with any of them so far.

FAQs about the Platinum Preppy

Q:
Will this pen work with Jinhao universal ink cartridges?
Asked on Mar 14 2016 by Ricky
A:
No, sorry the Platinum pens have a proprietary ink cartridge and will only accept Platinum brand cartridges.
Q:
Can the Platinum Preppy fountain pen be converted to use bottle ink?
Asked on Jan 7 2015 by Gail
A:
The Platinum 500 ink converter will fit the Platinum Preppy fountain pen and may be purchased separately. This gives you the option with the Platinum Preppy fountain pen to use cartridges or bottle inks. In order to use bottle inks either add the Platinum 500 converter or you can also seal the threads using silicon grease and convert the pen to an eye dropper fountain pen.
