Here we have the new BIC collectors pens. This is a set of four in hot pink, blue, orange and green with the wording BIC Collection Limited Edition on the side. These pens all have blue ink refills in them. I sometimes change out the ink color to match the body of the pen color but I do not remember seeing a BIC like these that has orange ink. The other three BICs are the new BIC Medium Easy Glide and the ink colors do match the pen body color. The two on top are the Italian BICs. I have been getting plenty of emails about BICs as more and more people start collecting them. Low start up cost and plenty of different BICs out there. Add all these great BICs to your collection.

Most if not all of these BICs are from the 1980s. This was during the time that I was out of the country so I missed these great BICs. On the left is a packaged BIC M-39 Deluxe Medium point. In the middle is a nice pack of BIC M-10s. At one time these pens were in every store, now just overseas. On the right is a box of regular BICs in red made in Mexico. Bottom left is a hard to find F-25 Fine Point Autopen Repro. On the right is a GM-39 Deluxe Medium Point. Add all these great BICs to your collection. Thanks Anthony for the trade.

What a nice plastic and cardboard Parker Jotter Display. As you can see this display is up to date with 2013 and the 125th anniversary of the Parker Pen Company 1888-2013. This display has 18 slots for your Parker Jotters. I currently do not have enough Jotters to fill all 18 slots without taking some out of my other display case so I will be looking for more colors I do not have yet. This display also lists the website www.wordsforthefuture.com where you can see the past and future of the Parker Pen Company. Add the Parker Jotters and the display to your collection.

Just picked up my new Pentel Carbon Black P-205 pencil. Third on the right front four. Back row starts with a P203 then 17 P205s. After the P205s you have the P215, PS315, P207, P327, PF337 and last the P209. Front four are the Cocobolo P207, Pentel 11, P205 Carbon Black and a very nice P219. My two new P205 Carbon Black pencils are from JetPens. I have 28 plus P200s some extras so how many different P200s are out there? Germ at Pencils 11 had the largest collection I have ever seen. I wonder if Pentel made an all metal P200 like with the Pentel PD505 side clicker? Maybe that would be something for Kickstarter. Add them all to your collection.

My Supply Room has been blogging since 2009 and by far the most visited and commented post has been about Scan Cards. With all our computers and other hand held devices today there is still a real fascination and need for a system like Scan Cards. The reason is because the system works. The original system and products were closed down after I had finished my first post on Scan Cards. Over the years I had collected many of their products and cards and when I ran out of cards I looked on eBay and had cards made at Staples. Then I started to get emails from people about McKinley American Leathercrafters in Ohio. Websites are www.mckinleyleather.com and www.scancardorganizer.com. They are making and selling the three ring binder with the scan card inserts as pictured above. You get the very nice leather 1" binder with note pad on the right side, a scan card control panel the holds 40 cards with 500 blank cards. This total binder system also comes with a zipper binder. Currently the only other scan card product is the starter kit which would be panels,cards or both. I sent them some scan card holders that I had in my collection. I believe in the near future we will be having more types of systems to choose from. I do want to thank Derek Williams from McKinley Leather for sending this very nice leather scan card system for me to try out and review. I have used some form of scan cards for almost 20 years. Add them to your collection.

Not the biggest order I have ever made at JetPens but nice items. On the left is a new Uni Kuru Toga blue clear body pencil. Just trying to have one of each type. All great pencils. Next are my new Hi-Tec-C Maica pens. I do like these pens. It seems that Pilot and a few others keep coming up with new ways of housing the Hi-Tec-C pens. Last is one of the new Pilot 2 +1 Evolt multi pens. Nice looking, well made and works fine. A great addition to my growing Pilot collection. As I said, this is not my biggest order but still great items. Add them all to your collection.
