Twenty-five years ago, the fountain pen brand Online was established.
Since then, Online owners Thomas and Alexandra Batsch have developed in Germany the most varied fountain pens, with new collections designed every year.
For its silver anniversary this year, Online is relaunching its brand profile of two updated product lines: the new Campus and College fountain pens.
The new Campus fountain pen has an ergonomic soft-touch grip that induces a relaxed writing mood, even when used continuously for a long time. It also has a guaranteed nickel-free clip of pure stainless steel, and comes with high-quality iridium nib in medium and extra fine finishes.
It is specially burnished and is also made for left-handed users.
The tried-and-tested nibs of the calligraphy pen Campus Best Writer in the three widths of 0.8-, 1.4- and 1.8-mm are easy to handle for creative handwriting.
The new Campus ink cartridge rollerball pen’s improved Magic Ball quality lengthens its product life and provides a more fluid writing experience.
The new College fountain pen is the writing tool of school kids, with its redesigned shape. It has a slim barrel; its cap stands out with modern design and high-quality metal clip.
The new College Best Writer makes creative writing a special experience. The tried-and-tested nibs in three different finishes are easy to handle.
The College lifestyle writing instrument has an improved Magic Ball and soft-touch grip.
Two more product lines, Switch and Air, complete the fountain pen offerings.
This jubilee year, the Online offices will move into the newly constructed logistics center, creating new space in the original building for increasing vertical integration, which Thomas Batsch and his team are setting up for the manufacture of new writing instruments.
