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!

I ordered the Preppy Fountain Pen in Pink with a fine nib. Love the look and feel of the pen, a bit of a dry writer with the standard cartridge included with the pen, but I have ordered a converter to try other inks to see if that makes a difference. I have since purchased a medium in a different color but have not yet tried it.

Great pen for every day use without fear of needing to replace. I have made mine into an eye dropper conversion with ease

I have to admit for a cheap pen it writes like a more expensive pen. I just have one draw back and that the clip on the cap breaks easily. but, Over all, it writes like a dream.

I own the crystal model. That’s what the preppy should have looked like all along. It’s a plasticky Pen, but that makes it great as a knock-around Pen you don’t have to worry about. It’s quite sturdy, and it also seals well. It’s the kind of pen I can leave in my backpack or on my desk and any time I take it out it’ll work flawlessly. And it finally comes in clear now.

I have all the Preppy colours but this one and it is really beautiful.Hard part is what ink to use. The yellow cartridge with it is really pale so I suggest get the Intl cartridge adapter and try another colour ink. Like Diamine Topaz or Marigold etc. I also would prefer a medium nib and this is fine. But Preppy's do come in medium with other colours so buy a blue or black or red with medium nib and swap. Cheap nib option and the extra pen can be used for ink testing. Although finer nibs do not lay down as much ink.

Smooth! Such a great writer! Light and comfortable and doesn’t dry out and can be eyedroppered to hold over 4ml of ink!

While stiff as a nail, the Pilot Preppy has the best Fine steel nib in my collection. It came out of the box with slight (but not whisper slight) feedback. After 8 passes on Micromesh is was unbelievably perfect. Smooth with just a whisper of feedback.

I highly recommend a blunt tip syringe with this pen as refilling the included cartridge is kind of the best option for the Preppy. The converter costs more than the pen and eyedroppering is messy. The included Platinum ink cartridge is unsaturated and uninteresting as a whole, and that’s really my only complaint on the whole package.

I generally use this pen when I’m just heading out for errands or taking my kids to the park or something similar. It’s a quick grab and go pen that I can just clip to a pocket notebook and I don’t have to worry about losing it. The preppy has held up really well to scratching and has not cracked yet on me. For the price, this is a knock around pen that simply cannot be beat.

The Platinum Preppy gets my highest recommendation.

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.
