(Pilot Pen) has launched its first-ever mobile tour to celebrate the launch of
the new retractable, smooth writing and completely erasable FriXion Clicker

At each stop, consumers will be invited to join the fun and bring their
'mistake-free' written words to life by creating and sharing personalized
postcards. Custom postcards will be printed on site with photos taken in the
FriXion Photo Booth. Attendees are encouraged to #PenItFwd by writing (and
rewriting, if necessary) the perfect note to someone special on a postcard
with FriXion Clicker erasable gel ink pens. Consumers can then place the
postcards in the 'Pilot Post' mailbox located conveniently on site for
delivery via the U.S. Postal Service. The "Mistake-Free Writing" crew will be
distributing coupons for FriXion Clicker pens at each event, encouraging
consumers to make mistakes a thing of the past, at an excellent value, this

Visitors can also bring the power of their written words into the digital
