I'd like to thank you for the prompt delivery of my order. I'd heard good things about the Clairefontaine Triomphe line of paper so I decided to give it a try - I was not disappointed. Thank you! :)
LauraFrom: UKDate: 21/05/2011 at 14:38
I am not one for giving feedback but this is the third pen that I have ordered from the Writing Desk. I have had the same super experience each time. Clear informative site, easy ordering and pen arriving on my door first thing the next morning. Yesterday, I ordered a pen for my son's birthday, it arrived this morning before 9. It is a fantastic pen. I highly recommend The Writing Desk to anyone looking for pens and accessories. Thank you.
Debbie AndersonFrom: USADate: 21/05/2011 at 14:11
I was just thrilled to get my Pelikan M400 white tortoise! I couldn't find this pen, with an EF nib, in the US. The good folks at The Writing Desk let me know in detail what the status of my order was, and it only adds to the charm of the pen that it was delayed a couple of days because mail services were closed due to the royal wedding. I'll definitely use The Writing Desk again.
Kevin AdamsonFrom: UKDate: 19/05/2011 at 19:33
I have used The Writing Desk on a number of occassions and would highly recommend them to anyone considering buying quality writing instruments. The service is fast and reliable. My latest aquistion a Parker Duofold fountain pen found in the 'vintage pens' section arrived today. The web description was spot on the pen is absoulutly mint.
Carl CarterFrom: EnglandDate: 16/05/2011 at 13:20
Excellent service, fast and efficient, and the TWSBI Diamond 530 is a wonder pen! I love it!

Dear Anna and Martin, Thank you for the quick delivery of my beautiful capless Pilot Decimo. The shipment notification said it would take 1 to 2 weeks but my pen was there in only a few days. Many thanks!

Another efficient delivery from The Writing Desk. Even the postman was impressed by the packaging. And now I'm going to do some writing with my latest Sailor fountain pen. (I have to have a different pen for each colour ink, naturally.)

Michael GlasbyFrom: U.K.Date: 12/04/2011 at 13:13
As a pen collector (?fetishist) I have bought a number of excellent fountain pens (Conway Stewart, Sailor, Pelican) from The writing Desk. Also a rocker blotter, various inks and the splendid and useful Visconti Travelling Inkwells which I would not want to be without. It is difficult, these days, to find retailers who are INTERESTED in good pens and what goes with them and I am immensely grateful for The Writing Desk.
LinaFrom: RussiaDate: 12/04/2011 at 05:29
Dear Anna and Martin, All received, thank you for amazing service! Kindest regards, Lina
Neil D. SmithFrom: UKDate: 08/04/2011 at 14:26

Derek NugentFrom: United KingdomDate: 06/04/2011 at 12:14

TatianaFrom: Russia, MoscowDate: 05/04/2011 at 20:46
Dear Anna and Martin, I received my Sailor pens this morning. Thank you very much for your help during the order, the excellent service, careful packing and quick shipping. Best regards, Tatiana.
SRFrom: EnglandDate: 05/04/2011 at 13:14
Pen and inks ordered - pen needed to be special ordered but Martin sent me an email letting me know, pen and inks arrived well packaged, in perfect order less than a week after initially ordering. This is how things should be. I have also asked about ordering some spare nibs and again, Martin emailed promptly to let me know how that is progressing. I know I deal with The Writing Desk via a computer but it is clear that at the other end there is a human being who really does care about their customers and products.
DJ KimFrom: S. KoreaDate: 05/04/2011 at 08:34
I received the items overseas. Thank you for your service. I'd like to add one thing. When I ordered, a few letters of my address were not shown on the payment window, but the payment confirmation mail showed all of them. When I received them, the letters were still missing in my address. So please check your address recording system.
Abdurrahman DemirelFrom: TurkeyDate: 04/04/2011 at 13:43
Hello, I received my order this day and it is OK. Thanks. Best regards
Michel UrbanFrom: FranceDate: 03/04/2011 at 20:02

Thank you for the good care you have given to my order. Quickly and efficiently.
Keith BartlettFrom: UKDate: 01/04/2011 at 12:18
Thank you so much for your excellent service. My order arrived yesterday beautifully packaged. I'm over the moon with my new TWSBI pen and Monteverde ink so much so that I'm thinking of ordering some more pens in the other nib sizes. Thanks, Keith Bartlett
Denis CathcartFrom: UKDate: 31/03/2011 at 15:16
As others have commented, quality and speed are excellent. I had a couple of minor problems with orders (not in any way your fault) and was very impressed that you got a human being into the loop and the problem sorted immediately.
Lotta AFrom: FinlandDate: 28/03/2011 at 10:07
