So You're Social Distancing Pt. 2

So you're social distancing...

and you need ideas to keep your mind occupied. Not to worry, here are some things Karas employees love to do when we aren't designing and making pens.

Coloring books for adults were a HUGE fad a couple of years back, but those didn't go away. If anything there's more of them now then there were before. Even better, you can find printable pages online with a quick google search. Here and here are a few pages that we like. If you do end up coloring some pages, shoot a photo of your in-process or completed page, post it on social media and tag us. We'd love to see what you're working on.

Word search and crossword puzzles are something you can use your Karas writing instrument to complete. Again, the internet is a treasure trove of free, printable options for these types of games. Click on of the links above to be taken to some of the best options we've been able to find.

Send out some old-timey "snail mail". You know the kind that you need a pen for. There's the tendency to write emails or send texts in today's busy world. But I'd wager someone receiving a handwritten letter during this time, might be a pick-me-up. Wipe down the outside of the envelope with Clorox wipe and write a note on the back of the envelope telling the recipient you've taken all precautions necessary. While there is an entire month dedicated to letter writing, that doesn't mean you can't start now. Heck, if you send a letter to us, we'll send you back something cool in return. It could be a sticker pack, some random old goodies from Paul's desk, or legacy parts and pieces that we have lying around the shop. If you send us a nice handwritten letter (Karas Korrespondence, 126 S. Country Club Drive, Mesa, AZ 85210), we'll get something back in the mail to you.

It's perfectly acceptable to write inside our "Write Outside"

notebooks. It's also perfectly acceptable to be inside, when you're writing inside you're "Write Outside" notebook.

These pocket notebooks are 3.875" x 5.5", feature a full-bleed printed cover, and 48 page, 60#, uncoated blank interior. The custom artwork features our official Camp Karas mascot, the Mogollon Monster along with a color scheme inspired by 80s camping equipment. Available as singles, so you can use these little guys to take notes on the run without worrying about using them up and not getting more. Support your local pen manufacturer and grab a few, you won't regret it.

Created by our designer, Gee, this graphic and themes speak to our love of spending time outdoors and the adventures found there. This notebook is part of our Camp Karas Summer Release, which features several custom colorway pens, special vinyl stickers, and a set of patches inspired by boyscout badges (coming soon). The goal is to get people back outside and into the wonder that is found in the parks and outdoor areas in their respective parts of the world. Go outside and write your story!
