rs-ss-pfmkitWhile attending the recent Miami Pen Show, Anderson Pens did more than just buy some pens. They came back with a whole new company!

Brian and Lisa Anderson have acquired Snorkel Solutions from Sam Marshall and Martin Ferguson.

Snorkel Solutions was started by Sam Marshall in 2005 to remanufacture o-rings and point seal gaskets to original Sheaffer specifications for Snorkel and Touchdown filling fountain pens.

Anderson Pens will continue to offer these same high quality products. O-rings and point holder gaskets will be available for purchase separately or together in a kit that also includes a sac, starting at only $1!

With Brian’s interest in vintage pens and repairs, Snorkel Solutions becoming part of AndersonPens just seems like a good fit. Add that to their excellent customer service and I don’t see how you can go wrong.

    I’m not sure I know how to react to this, mainly due to a terror of both change and concentration of ownership. The latter really shouldn’t come into play, inspired as it is by much more monolithic concerns (Textron and Newell-Rubbermaid, for some context-appropriate examples), and I’m sure all involved are pleased with the turn of events. I’ll compromise by shouting “Hooray” from a fortified position under the couch with a blanket over my head.

      Well, if anything, it’s going to be more flexible than before, we’re going to offer the option of purchasing as little as 1 o-ring or gasket (could only buy in units of ten before) as well as making them available for purchase online. There was a lot of mail in business before so we just made it easier for people to get the gaskets and o-rings they need. :)

      We’re also maintaining the exact same pricing and discount structure as before, just adding in those lower tier examples from 1-4 or 5-9 units for those who don’t wish to purchase 10.
