This 12 Pen Folder is one of my favorites of the four cases/sleeves Constellations88 sent over for review. It's not a huge case, but it is quite thick even when it's empty. It has slightly rounded corners, and the Constellations88 star logo is on the front. The brown material is warm with just a bit of gloss to it. It is fairly smooth and doesn't have much visible texture. The stitching and zipper is a matching brown, which looks pretty nice. The inside of the case is black and velvety, with black stitching. The pillows are cut to cover the elastics, with four in total.
This case feels pretty decent in hand - it's firm because the covers are stiff, and the material has a soft touch to it. As far as how it feels, I do think it's pretty nice. It holds its shape well, so it does a good job of protecting pens from each other or from other things in your bag. It can hold up pretty well to some banging around, because obviously that's what happens in bags.
- Foam leather - ideal for vegans or those who don't want an animal leather case.
- Soft finish feels nice.
- Portable size.
- Twelve is a reasonable amount of pens to carry, isn't it?
- Minimal branding.
- Padded inside to protect pens.
- Firm covers provide extra protection.
- Cannot hold many large pens - becomes too thick and strains when closed.
- Finishing needs some refining.
- Double elastics are really hard to work with if you have larger pens - they're really snug.
- The struggle to get pens into and out of the elastics wears down the velvet underneath.
WHO IS THIS FOR?
This is a good case for those who have small to medium pens and who want to carry twelve at a time! Also a great choice if you observe a vegan lifestyle.
This is a decent looking pen case at a reasonable price. I like the portable size of it, especially compared to the giant size of 48 pen folders. Although it's not inexpensive, it's also not so bad either. It looks like leather, it sure does protect your pens, and although the finish is not immaculate, it's not a bad deal. And vegan!
