In my opinion, Online is a great brand. It combines German engineering (the company is based in Neumarkt) with really fun and fashionable styles. There’s lots new coming from Online in the coming months—pens and leathers—many in fashionable shades of cream and brown. Watch for the new Cruiser capless rollerball and sketch pencil. Also watch for line extensions in the Business line, the Flip, Vision, Piccolo and Crystal Inspirations. Sneak Peek: the Extend will be coming out next year, and it does just what the name implies.
