Celebrate the holidays with this festive new Tornado. Inspired by folk art but with a modern graphic vibe, these charming rollerball pens will add a touch of whimsy to your holiday mailings.
This Retro51 Tornado rollerball pen features the 2020 USPS Holiday Stamp art silkscreened on the stainless-steel barrel and finished with a gloss varnish complimented by the polished chrome trim. Each Tornado’s top ring features an engraved USPS logo plus the pens’ limited-edition number engraved of 1225 pieces. Finally, each pen is topped with a graphic finial with one more snowflake looking up at you when it’s stored upright in your pocket or purse. The Retro51 licensed pen comes within a commemorative USPS packaging tube that not only stores your Retro, but also can be used as a pen stand on your desk when not in use. Pick up this festive rollerball just in time to write your holiday letters or gift to friends and family!
With a traditional palette of red, green and white, illustrator Kirsten Ulve channeled her love of Christmas, vintage ornaments and Scandinavian folk art to create unique digital illustrations of four holiday icons: a prancing reindeer with antlers; an ornament tied with a bow and ready to hang; a tree topped with a star; and a stocking holding a teddy bear and a sprig of holly.
Art director Antonio Alcalá designed the stamps.
