2020 Spring Sale – March 30th to April 13th

I am launching a sale on select inks brands:

There is also a 10% off coupon available for Kaweco pens which you can use at the checkout: KAWECO10

Due to the ongoing pandemic I had to disable delivery with Romania Post as they have stopped delivering to many countries and it’s not the safest to visit the post office. All deliveries will be handled through DHL Airmail.

Diamine (Standard), Platinum, Rohrer & Klingner (Standard & SketchINK) and Standardgraph inks are available until stocks last, unfortunately I can’t take backorders for them at the moment.

We’re on Instagram! ๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿ“ธ

Our username is @pennonia.eu ๐Ÿ˜

I finally managed to make an Instagram account and successfully connect it to our Facebook page. It turns out it is not as straightforward as one might think. I’ll write down the correct steps further in the post but first I want to talk a little bit about our account.

The reason it took so long to create an Instagram account is simply because life always gets in the way of things and it takes a lot of time to do something well. I have always known that as a business it is absolutely necessary to be on as many social networking platforms as possible and I’m working towards this one step at a time. In a couple of his videos Brian Goulet mentioned that social media and quality, helpful content is one of the best ways to get yourself known and without doubt I believe it since his Youtube videos are excellent and the reason why I personally found out about them when I first got into this hobby.

I’ll try to upload at least one picture a week and be active in general, so if you like cool pics of pens, inks and other pen related stuff, please check out our account!

The Fountain Pen Companion

Drop - The Fountain Pen Companion

Starting with this entry I would like to introduce a new type of post to the blog called a “drop”. These little short posts will be about things I find on the internet or thoughts related to fountain pens and inks. There is so much info to share with everyone on fountain pens and usually the small circle of enthusiasts already know most of it. However as I browse the forums I always see newcomers asking and looking for info. Hopefully posts similar to this one will make it easier for others to find neat things around the internet related to fountain pens or will include useful information that can help both new and more experienced fountain pen users alike.

Now the first drop I want to drop onto you is about a database. I was recently recommended to check out a site called “The Fountain Pen Companion” by another fountain pen enthusiast I met in Budapest and it’s an awesome service I think everyone should know about. If you don’t know what “The Fountain Pen Companion” (from hereon FPC) is, then let me feel you in. ๐Ÿ˜€

Welcome to Pennonia!

Welcome to Pennonia, Fountain pens in Europe

Hello and welcome to Pennonia!

European fountain pensMy name is Mate Bikfalvi but just call me Matt to make things easy. My name is Hungarian so it’s a bit complicated to spell it in English in order to get the pronunciation right. I just want to write a few words to let everyone know what Pennonia is, who am I, what is the purpose of this blog; basically a general overview and presentation. Without further ado, let’s start!

Pennonia first is an online web store that sells fountain pens, inks, paper and other fountain pen related goods but secondly it’s also a blog dedicated to all things related to fountain pens and the world of fountain pens. Posts on the blog will include reviews, photo galleries, fountain pen news, news about Pennonia, about products but my goal is to also do a series of posts that try to answer questions that come up in this hobby. I don’t claim to be an expert and I’ll probably never will, but I will try to help and post useful information whenever I can!
