Papermate Flair Pens

 Here is a bunch of old Papermate Flair Pens. I checked all the pens and none of them work. I can however get the refillable Flair bottom left working by using a Acme or Foray roller ball refill with about 3/4" of an old metal refill pushed into the back end. They work fine and you will be bring a old Papermate back to life. All these Flairs are from the late 60s and early 70s. Disposable Flairs were first make in 1966.

 Most of the time we look at the front of the package with very little regard for the back where the instructions and information is listed.

Its fun to read these old backs to see what was happening at that time in pen history and how the company was promoting their pens.  Add them all to your collection.
