Hello! My name is Jonathon Brooks, owner and operator of Carolina Pen Company. I am based in the small town of Aiken, SC where I was born and raised. I reside here with my beautiful wife and daughter.
My venture into making pens started in September of 2009. Since then I have developed my knowledge, skills, and techniques to turn your basic writing instrument into a piece of tangible art. One of the skills I really invested myself in is learning how to design and create my own line of custom resin pen material. This allows me to be able to tailor each pen to its owner. Whether its Alma Mater colors, wedding colors, a favorite sports team, or just a classic pairing I am able to make a pen an extention of your personality. Which is how I came up with my slogan/catch phrase of "Putting your personality in writing".
Beyond my designer in house resins I also create pens using all types of materials from domestic/exotic hardwoods, ebonite, rare vintage plastics, and artistic embeds. The possibilities are endless with what can be made into a pen.
Right now Carolina Pen Company is a one man operation. When I'm not working on pens I spend most of my time with my wife and little girl. Aiken is a well known equestrian community and it's no different here on our farm. My wife is an accomplished rider and my daughter has certainly caught the horse bug!
Thank you for taking the time to read a little about me, my family, and my growing company.
