Retro 51 is proud to partner with the United States Postal Service on a collection of licensed writing instruments! The Route Master is the second design to start this new licensed collection.
The history of the Postal Service is a large story set on a broad canvas. It is intertwined with the history of America, and it provides a lens from which to observe the evolution of the United States. The postal system strengthened the foundations of our democracy by fostering the flow of ideas and access to America’s free press. It enabled the vast expansion of American industry and commerce, spanning and influencing the rise of the railroads in the 19th century, air travel in the 20th century, and the advanced digital technology of recent decades.” (https://facts.usps.com/history/)
It is Retro 51’s honor to partner with the USPS on a series of pens spotlighting the Post Office, its history and story. From the Pony Express to modern Electric Vehicles, the United States Post Office has a proud tradition of delivering the mail to even the most remote regions of the country. The Route Master evokes the iconic vintage postal vehicles of yesteryear. The Red, White and Blue along with the historic eagle logo harken back to a simpler time and remind us how vital the United States Postal Service is.
This Tornado rollerball has an acid-etched barrel with the light texture paneling and rivets seen on the vintage USPS vehicles. The metal barrels are then printed with the iconic eagle logo and vehicle markings complete with gloss black trim topped with another Eagle icon on the finial. Each one is loaded in the USPS branded tube to store your Retro when it's not in use. Pick up this new licensed design to start delivering great ideas at home and the office.
