10th Anniversary Competition
The Writing Desk is 10 years old this year and as part of our celebrations we are giving away a brand new Conway Stewart Belliver Limited Edition fountain pen, serial number 10. To enter, all you have to do is place an order between 08:00 BST on 14th July 2010 and midnight BST on 31st August 2010 and the winner will be picked at random.
Atelier de la Foret pen cases
We recently started stocking these high quality leather pen cases and they have proved so popular that we have increased the range of colours available. All cases are generous enough to hold larger pens like the Conway Stewart Churchill and Pelikan M1000.
Clairefontaine Roadbook and Duo
These two notebooks are part of the Age Bag series with the same type of flexible cover and 90gsm smooth paper. The Roadbook, with its elastic closure, makes an excellent every day pocket-sized notebook.
Rhodia WebNoteBook 90gsm
These long-awaited notebooks are now here in both plain and lined versions with 90gsm Clairefontaine paper.
New Herbin ink
J. Herbin recently announced its 1670 Anniversary ink "Rouge Hematite", a rich, deep red colour. Although we have sold out of our first delivery we will be getting some more very soon. We will also soon have 100ml refill bottles in some of the more popular colours.
New Sailor products
Sailor ProColor - Sailor quality at an affordable price. The same size as the Calligraphy pen but in bright colours and with titanium ion plated nib.
Sailor Sapporo Colours - now including translucent finishes.
Sailor Professional Gear Realo - a piston-filling version of the classic Professional Gear, available in black and maroon.
Sailor Spring ink - a limited edition of four new colours, with integral reservoir to make filling easier.
Conway Stewart Givitah and Wordsworth Limited Editions
Only one of each left in stock.
Yard-O-Led - new model
In early September we will have a new range from Yard-O-Led: the DeLuxe 60. This is the first genuinely new model from Yard-O-Led for several years and will be available as a pencil and ballpen.
A lot of you have been waiting patiently for new stock to arrive. Unfortunately we have no word as to when our delivery will come. As soon as we know we will announce its arrival.
