This Retro 51 Tornado rollerball pen features the 2021 USPS Love Stamp silkscreened on the stainless-steel barrel and finished with a gloss varnish that is complemented by the polished chrome trim.
Each Tornado’s top ring features an engraved USPS logo plus the pen’s serial number engraved for this running series. The textured knurl-top twists to extract the smooth-flowing rollerball refill and then closes with a twist in the opposite direction when not in use.
Finally, each pen is topped with a graphic finial with one more heart looking up at you when it’s stored upright in your pocket or purse.
The Retro 51 licensed pen comes within a commemorative USPS packaging tube that not only stores your pen, but also can be used as a pen stand on your desk when not in use.
The original art and stamp design by Bailey Sullivan with Greg Breeding as art director uses “playful, graphic lettering” and “will add color and whimsy to your mailings, making it clear that thought and care have been lavished on the message, inside and out.” The 2021 Love stamp is a Forever stamp, so lavish some love and caring on your favorite people by make this open numbered Tornado rollerball a part of their forever collection.
