Q&A with Jennifer

Not only do the employees at Retro 1951 work here, but we all believe in the product we sell. With this blog post (and future posts) we will show off Jennifer’s collection because we are fortunate to have great products at our fingertips! Jennifer works in sales and has been with Retro for five years.

What was your first Retro pen you bought?

VRR-1313 Pink Classic Lacquer
How many do you own now? 22 (Here is a photo of the ones I have here at work)


Which one is your favorite?

Safari (Tortoise) desk set pen, Minnie Mouse BP from the Mickey Mouse & Friends Collection


Do you regret not buying a Retro product that is now gone/discontinued?

Yes, the Scripmaster Series II Twist Ballpoint in Tortoise. Such a beautiful pen!


What is the next one you want to buy?

I love the new Snapper design that is coming out this Spring, can’t wait to get it!

What has been your pen of choice lately? Why?

The black Hex-o-matic ballpoint because I like the slimmer grip and lighter weight.


Rollerball, fountain, ballpoint or pencil?

Ballpoint because I grip my pens very close to the tip and the easy-flow works best with my writing style.

    Love them all, but the Safari (Tortoise) desk set is uber-cool. Those desk sets seem to be popping up everywhere…. I saw one (in black) in the film “The Wolverine” recently, and another desk set in a film/TV series I can’t recall just now…In any case, many thanks for sharing your collection with us, Jennifer 🙂
