PARKER LAUNCHES NEW LUXURY PEN LINE

 JANESVILLE, Wis., Oct. 5 /PRNewswire/ -- Parker Pen today launched a line of luxury writing instruments designed specifically for people who take pleasure in writing by hand.
 Named the Sonnet Collection, the line includes fountain pens, roller balls, ball pens and pencils priced from $60 to $250. It is the fourth major product line introduced by Parker since 1988.
 Introducing the Sonnet, Robert Walker, marketing director, Parker Pen USA Ltd., said, "Although computers dominate general business communications, our research indicates that hand written notes, letters and envelopes get more and faster attention these days.
 "We have found there is an expanding market for writing instruments that not only write perfectly, but are attractive personal possessions," he added.
 The Sonnet line, lead by the fountain pen, is available in sterling silver, 23K gold plate or silver plate, one finished in the ancient art of Chinese lacquering and three others in lacque. Each is available with matching roller ball, ball pen and pencil. All are trimmed in 23K gold plate.
 As with other Parker fountain pens, the Sonnet can be filled with bottled ink or ink cartridges.
 The 105-year-old Parker Pen Company provides an unconditional guarantee on each model throughout the life of the original owner.
