Wedding Pen Production!
Here are the results of a recently completed project. A buddy of mine (the groom) wanted to give his groomsmen a custom pen as a gift for taking part in the wedding ceremonies. After some back & forth, he wanted to get cigar pens (chrome finish) made with cherry.
Well, the bride caught wind of what was going on and wanted to get in on the act, too! She wanted some Sierra Elegants (black titanium finish) made with maple – to give to the ladies in the wedding party.
Altogether, I knocked out 10 of the cigars and 8 of the sierras – and the newlyweds are very happy with the results.
For all of you pen turners on LJ – this could be a good market to target. You can produce/sell your pens in larger quantities instead of the one-off orders. Perhaps target a wedding consultant/planner in your area and introduce yourselves and what you can do.
Thanks for looking and all comments are welcome.
