Platignum was one of the great British pen brands, but sadly disappeared many years ago. For many people who went to school around the 1960s, and grew up with Platignum pens, they remained a fond memory. They always specialised in the sort of sturdy pens that could withstand the rigors of school use, being carried in the snow, uphill both ways; and at a price your parents could afford - and we all know times were 'ard back in those days.
The brand has returned in recent years with a new modern look, continuing the old tradition of tough, great value pens.
You tell that to the kids of today, and they'll just ask if there's a stylus to work with their iPad. Fortunately for them, Platignum has always been an innovative brand, so there is the option of a touch-screen stylus.
Having learned a lot from the initial relaunch of the brand in 2007, Platignum have now revealed their second generation of new models, again concentrating on sturdy metal pens at great prices, and combining elements of the best of the previous generation.
To help introduce the new models, Platignum have given us a huge selection of pens to give away, so it's competition time! With so many pens to give away, we have split the products into three main prizes. We will also be selecting a further eight entrants at random, who will all win a Studio ballpoint and fountain pen! What's more every winner will also receive a limited edition Time fountain pen.
Here's what's up for grabs...
The first randomly selected winner has all this coming their way...
Two runners-up will receive...
We did say that there were a lot of prizes on offer, and we weren't joking. We wouldn't joke about something like that - most of our jokes are about elephants.
