The Platinum Preppy is the quintessential starter fountain pen. Many people would describe it as a “disposable” pen, but there is nothing disposable about it! Refill cartridges and converters are available, so your Preppy is built to last. O-rings are also available that will allow you to eyedropper your preppy (fill the body with ink instead of using a cartridge or converter).
All available pens have silver-colored nibs. Each pen comes with its corresponding color cartridge inside the pen. Extra cartridges are sold separately.
They also feature Platinum’s Slip & Seal cap to keep your pen from drying out for up to one year.
Its light weight, even when posted, makes it a great everyday or occasional use pen. Multiple colors make it easy to keep class notes or bullet journals organized and fun.
Platinum cartridges and converters are proprietary.
