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. All pens are sold separately, with the exception of sets of colors which are stated in the variations. Each available color and nib size are listed as variations of this listing, as well as the cartridges which contain 2 per package. Each pen comes with its corresponding color cartridge inside the pen. Extra cartridges are sold separately. Use the “Add to cart” button to buy more than one item from this listing.
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.
