I am very pleased with both the service and the quality of the goods - the pen arrived quickly despite being out of stock when the order was placed. Highly recommended!

Wonderful service again from Anna and Martin at The Writing Desk. I bought 2 Diamine Inks and a range of Visconti Cartridges and they arrived in Australia 3 days later. Fantastic service and business! Thanks again, Nathan Hondros

Ian BlackmanFrom: KENYADate: 25/11/2008 at 11:42
I had used your services without any problems when I lived in the UK, but was unsure about overseas deliveries etc. since I have now moved to Kenya. I shouldn't have worried; delivery was much quicker than I expected, and I didn't have to pay VAT! Many thanks - I can now recommend you to my friends here.
KevinFrom: AustraliaDate: 25/11/2008 at 05:13
Very friendly and efficient service and for a LAMY addict like me the only business I know where I can get the nib sizes/types that I want along with all the other Lamy accessories and at a very competitive price.
Gregory SimpsonFrom: ukDate: 24/11/2008 at 12:25

V EarndenFrom: UKDate: 23/11/2008 at 16:09
Excellent service, as always
TomFrom: UKDate: 22/11/2008 at 17:20
The colours are very saturated in all of the three Private Reserve inks I chose and this is a new departure for me. I'm getting used to this and the slower drying times but the experience began very well because of the rapid turn-round between placing the order and receiving the parcel. Having swatches to help choose the colours was a real bonus as was the wide range of colours available. A clear & enjoyable website to use; thank you. Tom
MalcolmFrom: UKDate: 21/11/2008 at 18:15
The Sailor Converter was delivered today. Thank you, as always, for your wonderful and speedy service. Malcolm
Malachi O'DohertyFrom: IrelandDate: 20/11/2008 at 21:10
Just one wee quibble. I bought a Bexley tortoiseshell and really like it, but I had been attracted to it by the colouring on your website image and it is not right. There is a blue tint on the web image - at least on my monitor - and it is black on the screen. Also, the body of the pen is transparent and you can't tell that from the picture either. Otherwise a lovely light pen that writes smoothly.
David HotchkinFrom: UKDate: 20/11/2008 at 18:09
This is the second time that I have placed an order with your company, over the internet, and on both occasions the goods arrived on the morning of the second day after placing the order. (All present and correct). The fact that you test the pens before despatch is indicative of a good old-fashioned service. I very much hope to order more from you in future. Many thanks again, David Hotchkin. P.S. I have had a lot of fun demonstrating the Noodler's Eternal Black (bullet-proof) ink to my friends: they have been just as astonished as I was by the stuff.
KathFrom: UKDate: 20/11/2008 at 14:54
Wow - next day delivery ! Very happy with my Lamy convertor and pen nib. Excellent service and I will definitely be buying online again from you. Many Thanks.
Cathy HumeFrom: UKDate: 20/11/2008 at 13:05
Very prompt service - my package arrived today (20.11.08) - also very pleased with quality of goods.
hilary edwardsFrom: ukDate: 20/11/2008 at 10:11
Christmas came early today; a box full of goodies!!! Many thanks for your usual prompt dispatch.
Salim PeerbaccusFrom: UKDate: 20/11/2008 at 09:21
At Christmas I find gift shopping quite harrowing to say the least, However, just give a call to The Writing Desk, and they will ensure that you have the right product for your budget; you can then leave the deliver worries to them. You will not be hurried or pressured into buying and their advice, we have found to be spot on. A very good family business, with customer care at its heart, a 5 Star choice.
Dr. Andrew HughesFrom: United KingdomDate: 18/11/2008 at 12:33
Excellent and efficient service with materials safely arriving within three days of ordering. For the fountain pen user you are an oasis in a desert!
Tony TownsendFrom: UKDate: 18/11/2008 at 10:40
Thank you for such a prompt service in the delivery of my Herbin mini rocker blotter however, do I understand that to replace the blotting paper, I rip out the one in place and just slide in a new strip?
Julie Davies-BrownFrom: UKDate: 17/11/2008 at 21:07
Not only did The Writing Desk have the best on-line price I could find for my Conway Stewart pen but I found the service to be very friendly and personal, with individual e-mail order confirmation, expected delivery date and dispatch confirmation which makes a pleasant change for internet shopping. The pen when it arrived was beautiful. I would certainly use The Writing Desk again.
Bob MillarFrom: UKDate: 17/11/2008 at 13:40
All arrived safely and quickly, thank you.
John T.From: MaltaDate: 15/11/2008 at 15:18
My Sailor Sapporo fountain pen was sent and delivered in record time, and your communication was excellent. The pen is superb (thanks very much for testing it prior to delivery). The cost for postage and packing to Malta was very reasonable. This is one very satisfied customer, who will definitely return. Thanks for such a perfectly professional service.
Robert KongFrom: UKDate: 15/11/2008 at 11:05
Came across this site by chance recently. Now it's the second time I'm buying from here in two months. Even though it's buying on line, you get a sense that you're dealing with people who know their stuff and run their business with a passion. I haven't had to ask them for advice when choosing my pens, but I'm sure they would be very helpful. Try to find a shop that provides even a modicum of service nowadays.... Delivery is free - what a bonus. Or would you rather pay for parking in town?
D GoddenFrom: EnglandDate: 15/11/2008 at 10:17
My order was dispatched promptly and arrived safely. Thank you.
KitFrom: UKDate: 14/11/2008 at 14:29

LuFrom: IrelandDate: 11/11/2008 at 09:06
Received the pen two weeks ago. Very beautiful. Because to write the Chinese character, I have to use EF nip. Thanks god, you can do the customized nip even for the cheap pen, Thank you very much. And I also wonder how much will the delivery cost to China?

Thank you again for your excellent service - fast delivery and very carefully packaged! Very pleased with the Lamy 2000, and looking forward to ordering from you again.
Attila FrimmerFrom: HungaryDate: 10/11/2008 at 10:22
Fast and reliable service. From UK to Hungary in 3 days! Excellent! Thank You!
KarenFrom: EnglandDate: 08/11/2008 at 18:11
I ordered a Lamy Nexx and some Noodlers inks from you last Monday. Everything arrived the following day, which was really impressive. I also really appreciated the advice over the phone about what inks might work well in my Lamy 2000. The advice that the Ottoman Azure might be the right one has turned out to be spot on! I'll be ordering again! Thank you.
D HamblyFrom: UKDate: 06/11/2008 at 17:13
First class service again, kept me informed of when payment had been processed & when the item was dispatched & it arrived next day. Many thanks

Once again I've had a perfect delivery of inks from across the other side of the world! Thank you Anna and Martin! Can you tell me when the WHS blue will be in stock please?
Caroline RixFrom: UKDate: 04/11/2008 at 16:53
Absolutely excellent service, my order arrived incredibly quickly. As always, your service is first class, and you will always be my first choice.

Excellent service. Order processed very quickly and arrived (well packed!) within a couple of days. I am pleased to have found the right sized leads for my old silver pencils. I thought I would not be able to use them! Many thanks Carol Moore
