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!

According to its price, this is an excellent pen. It writes so tiny and not scratchy at all.

It's a Preppy. Best value for money fountain pen there is. Great pen to have round to test inks when you aren't sure if they will damage a pen. Great for handing out to people who want to try out fountain pens. Quality of the writing experience puts pens 20x it's price to shame. Can be eye droppered pretty easily for gigantic ink capacity.

I love these pens, I'm amassing a small fleet of them. They are great for trying out new inks. The nib is the same great nib you see in other inexpensive Platinums like the Prefonte. The build of the pen guards against the ink drying out, so I'm free to have a boatload of inked pens without much maintenance. This is one of the best cost-for-value items I have ever bought. The only downsides are they look cheap and you need an adapter or a converter to use them with other companies' ink. The great thing is they come with a cartridge which you can empty and refill. I was planning on doing that but I ended up liking the Platinum ink so much I will just use it up. Cannot overstate how great these pens are.

I have about 5 or 7 preppies, and these pens are amazing. they consistently write very well, and come in so many colors. The price point is on the low end almost to be disposable. However, if you treat it well, you can continue to use refills!

While I didn't expect much from such inexpensive pens , I was indeed amazed at how smoothly these pens write. WHile I have additional pens that cost subastantially more, I love using these pens on a dialy basis in my office. I ordered a blue pen for blue ink and a black pen for black ink. I use the blue pen virtually all the time at my desk while I use the black pen to sign documents. I have now been using both pens on a dialy basis for just over a week and remain most impressed. Lightyears ahead of the Pilot Plumix......

I bought 2 of this Preppy pens. One works perfect and really smooth, the other one had the nib unit already felt off. After reinserting the nib, it would not write at all.

This is not my first pen, but I've heard so much about the preppy. I've bought many cheap "disposable" fountain pens, just because they are convenient (especially when traveling. I like the preppy for its price and it is an excellent pen for the price. Writes great and you can use cartridges (proprietary, but still...). Haven't converted it to an eyedropper, but I would pick up another if I needed one. Might try the eyedropper technique if I get adventurous--I've done it with a Pilot Varsity and worked great.

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.

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.
