Shameless Plug – The Pen Co. of America

As many of you know, I’m a sucker for family–run businesses. Especially, family-run businesses who are committed to making stuff in these United States. Well, the Shea’s are just such a family. They own The Pen Company of America, and they’ve been making pens and markers for four generations. Without question, they are the “David,” in an industry overrun with “Goliaths.”

So – in exchange for the singular thrill of seeing the mikeroweWORKS logo emblazoned on a few of these terrific products, I’ve agreed to highlight their stubborn decision to remain in scenic Garwood, New Jersey, by appearing in this unapologetically frugal video, carefully designed to make you at least consider the possibility of owning an affordably priced, industrial-strength marker from a family who has steadfastly refused to move their business overseas.

If you’re at all impressed with the Shea’s, or simply beguiled by my parsimonious yet patriotic approach to marketing the best markers your money can buy, check out the RevMark/mikeroweWORKS Marker.

Or, if you wish to comment on my unforgivably wrinkled shirt, you may feel free to do so in the comments section below for absolutely no charge.
