Wow! Now! Paper Mate Ops 'n Pops are here!

Wow! Now! Paper Mate Ops 'n Pops are here!

This fab vintage advertisement poster photocopy came from blog reader George over at My Supply Room. Thanks, George - this is a total gem! He said he can remember these fashions, oh so 60s.

(To get a closer view at all these dancing pen folks, view large.)

I can't decide what I should do with it - make a special envelope? Use the pen dancers as graphics? In any case, I am tickled with the fun vintage gift.

  2. What a great advert. Oh, and I do remember those white go-go boots. Hmmm, wonder what I did with them, and do so wish I'd gotten one of those pens back then.

  3. I can't thank you enough for posting this image. I have searched for these pens for literally years! Now I know what they were called, and I can search more accurately. I had a couple of these pens when I was about 7 years old, and have always wondered what happened to them. I mistakenly thought they were Write Brothers pens because I remember a TV ad jingle during this time period that sang "Write on, Brothers, Write On!". I always associated these pens with that song.I just love the little bell bottom flair at the base of the pens. Now if I can just track down some Hullabaloo school folders I'll be set! :)

  4. Lisa, so glad to help you. George at the above linked blog is quite the expert, so if you need any more info I highly recommend him as a resource.

  5. When my father was made president of papemate I gave him a papermate pen decorated with small stickers and fashioned a holder out of a drilled out golf ball as a pen holder. The rest is history. Wish I had a few of them now.
