Hello! Christine here today to talk about fountain pen ink. If you've ever been to our shop in person, you'll know about the ink bar. It's an L-shaped counter at the back of our shop where we usually ring up customers, but it's also home to our ink sample making station and right next to our wall of inks. Customers can come here to swatch different inks and see what they look like in person. It's one of my favorite places to hang out -- I love chatting about color and inks with people. Those who've been to the shop looking...

 We are so excited to share with everyone this Note Writing Pad that Ashley has been working hard on designing all year! As many of you already know, this year, each member of our team has thought of a special project they would like to create with Yoseka. Earlier this year, Ashley said she would love to design a memo pad inspired by the handwritten notes we include in all of our orders. Since we write so many notes everyday, we often find ourselves flying through memo pads, so we packed this one with a full 150 sheets in three...

TWSBI fountain pens are one of our favorite fountain pens and many people don't know this about Yoseka, but they are actually the very first fountain pens we added. Back in 2017, when Neil and I were just getting started doing pop-ups, Yoseka was a very different shop! The store pretty much existed out of our car and the wooden crates that we would load up with stationery each week and haul to whichever location where we were popping up. For the first six months, Yoseka was a different experience each time you visited us because we were experimenting and...

Happy April! We had a lot of fun this month as a team! Soraya visited us and we had a team dinner that served as a mini reunion. We also got together over some delicious food to celebrate Christine's birthday this past weekend :) We miss going to our favorite local restaurants, but Neil and I have been enjoying inviting everyone over to our place for these gatherings since having Jacob.  At the beginning of the year, we announced that our goal for 2022 would be to celebrate the creativity of everyone on our team by having individual special projects that Yoseka releases with...

We are excited to introduce Laban Pen in our collections. Laban Pens was founded in Houtong, Taiwan, in 1981 by two brothers, Laban began with simple silver- and rhodium-plated fountain pens and soon expanded into more ornate and hollow-carved writing instruments.
