Wonder Pens in The Grid!

The Grid came for another visit to our neck of the woods, this time for a closer look at some of the stuff we have in the shop. It is always exciting when someone comes to ask questions about the differences between paper and inks and pens and who are these crazy folks still using this stuff? Nancy Tong came for the chat, and Reynard Li came for the photos.

Special thanks to Reynard, who had to suffer through taking photos of me and Jon – a situation way too reminiscent of other photo “opportunities” where Jon is too tall and I’m too short and we’re both too awkward to smile properly.


Hope you can pick up a copy of The Grid and check out what you can browse in store or online!

Wonder Pens in Toronto Star!

Pen and ink drawn back to bricks and mortar (That’s us!)


A couple of weeks ago, a writer from The Grid came to talk to us about the shop, and we were thrilled to be featured on their website. However, the best came when the Toronto Star linked up to the article, and published it in their print edition newspaper on Friday, August 9th!

I’d been hoping they would also put it up on their website so I could just link the article, but it doesn’t seem like that is going to happen. Here is a photo and a slightly larger image if you’d like to read about us!

We have been surprised and overwhelmed by the blogs and press we’ve been getting – it has been wonderful. I guess people are really becoming more interested in picking up a pen to write with once in a while!
