I was excited when I 1st received the pen in the mail. I haven't had one since the 70's. They used to be called Shaffer pens. The difference pen the Preppy pen and the one I use in the 70's the hole that the ink flows into to get to the tip gets stiff (the Ink) however there is a tiny silver ball in the cartridge that if you gently shake it the ink becomes easy flowing and the Shaffer did not have a ball in the cartridge. I think back in the 70's I was still in high school OMG the not taking I went though about 10 to 15 cartridges in a week. I LOVE THIS PEN.

Pen skips a lot. But what do you expect from a 4 dollar pen. Do yourself a favor and buy the Pilot Metropolitan for 15 dollars. You can't go wrong.

Loved it right up the changing of the ink and now am very sad. For some reason it stopped flowing and hasn't started again, even though I have squeezed the ink barrel to push ink down; washed it out with water; and finally did the 'fling down' action. Very sad.

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.

Platinum Preppy Video



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!
