Crowdsourcing Mornings: The Pen Addict Live 2019: Atlanta and San Francisco

This is Crowdsourcing Mornings! This post takes place every weekday morning and highlights one crowdsourcing project I liked from Kickstarter, Indiegogo, or other crowdsourcing websites.

Please read our crowdsourcing guidelines at:

2018 was our most successful campaign ever, and we are back for 2019 hoping to break that record once again!  This year, we will be at the 2019 Atlanta Pen Show from April 5th through 7th, which includes a live recording of The Pen Addict Podcast with Ana, Brad, and Myke on the evening of April 6th.

On top of that, we are heading across the country to the Bay Area to attend the 2019 San Francisco Pen Show from August 23rd to 25th. And that’s not all! For the first time, we will be recording a second live podcast on the tour. The San Francisco Pen Show promoters have graciously allocated space for us on Friday evening, the 23rd, to record in front of a live audience. We couldn’t be more excited!

Nock Co. is back once again with the campaign rewards, this time with a much requested case design. They are finally ready to release a stand-alone A5 pouch! While it will be similar in style and shape to the A5 case sold with the Lanier briefcase, there is an added feature we think you all will love: The case exterior will be made from waxed canvas.

This is a micro-weave waxed canvas which they have tested in small batches previously, and think it is a perfect match for this case. The interior will be made from the standard 400D pack cloth in Lime Green, and one of the interior pockets has been updated to include pen slots.

As of February 25th, this project has raised $25,000 of their $20,000 goal. This project has 24 days left to raise as much as it can. For a pledge of $15, you will get backers only video of both podcast shows.  For a pledge of $40, you will get a Burton canvas A5 case.  To learn more and to pledge money, go to:
