When choosing a new pen whether it be for yourself a present for a special occasion or corporate gift there are lots of things to consider.
Do you opt for the traditional fountain pen which is still the connoisseur’s choice as the classic writing instrument favoured by writing purists and professional people when writing or signing legal document a fountain pen makes a statement about yourself. Most of the fountain pens featured on our site can be filled via ink bottles or can be converted to take ink cartridges.
The Ballpoint Pen with its twist mechanism cap is the most popular pen people prefer to write with. Easy to use with no lid to take off, one turn to the right of the cap and the nib pops out and off writing you go. No waiting around for the ink to dry and the refills are easy to change. The refills are produced were the ink is housed in a steel cylinder refill so no mess with ink on your hands and clothes. All these features make this pen the most popular writing instrument we sell.
The Rollerball Pen is similar to the fountain pen as it has a lid you unscrew and in most cases you can place the cap of the pen onto the end barrel of the pen as is the case with most fountain pens. It uses a liquid ink so it is easy and smooth to write with similar to that of a fountain pen but without the mess as ink is housed in a stainless steel cylinder that screws into the pen similar to those used in ballpoint pens. A lot of rollerball pens can also take fineliner refills. The finliner is similar to a felt tip pen but the tip of the writing point is made a lot firmer and with its sprung loaded writing tip makes it a lot easier to write with. So you get two pens rolled into one with the rollerball as it can be converted into a fineliner by just unscrewing the rollerball refill and replacing with a fineliner refill.
We must not of course forget the Propelling Pencil although not classed as a pen it is featured in our writing instrument section on our site. The propelling pencil is easy to use with no messy ink to bother about. Twist the cap of the pencil and the lead becomes visible. When you have finished writing just twist the cap again and the lead retracts back into the pencils barrel. Different lead widths are available usually available in 5mm, 7mm and 9mm thicknesses. When you remove the cap of the pencil a rubber eraser is visible to remove any mistakes you have made whilst writing.
Leather pen cases are also available to purchase so you can keep your valuable writing instrument is pristine condition in its own leather pen case rather than rolling around on your office desk. Our leather pens are available in three different variants’ to hold one, two or three pens.
Engraving is another option we offer to personalise your pen which can make a great addition to your gift which shows you have given your gift some extra thought. If your pen is personalised it helps to identify your cherished pen in an busy office environment. We can engrave your initials or name onto the cap of the pen and also onto the clip of the pen. We can also engrave company logos and names onto most pens which makes the perfect corporate gift for any occasion.
All of our writing instruments come supplied in their own bespoke presentation boxes and are accompanied by a guarantee certificate.
