The Pink has landed!
We received our first delivery of the 2009 Special Edition Pink Safari yesterday. If you have pre-ordered a pen you will receive more details from us via e-mail.
Bexley Simplicity 2
Bexley recently introduced a range of 4 new colours in the Simplicity series and we have these in stock at the same price as the original series. Note that stocks of the original series are now exhausted.
A cute little fountain pen in translucent with an italic nib. Takes standard size cartridges (eg Diamine and Herbin). Only £4.99.
Yard-O-Led Esprit Standard
It's not every day that Yard-O-Led releases a new pen. The Esprit is styled in the same manner as the popular Viceroy but with the same diamond-machined and lacquered barrel finish of the recent Esprit Grand Limited Edition but at a fraction of the price.
Fast BACS payments
At last, the banks do something right! Bank transfers (in the UK) are now completing within one working day so this method of payment represents a genuine alternative to credit or debit card. If you choose this method when ordering you will receive our bank details with your order confirmation so you can log on to your internet banking service and initiate the transfer.
Aurora and Visconti
We apologise again for the interruption in supply of these products which as been due to changes in distribution. Things are now settling down and we will soon be able to offer a wider range of products from these two prestigious Italian brands.
Since Richemont Group recently disposed of Montegrappa the company is changing its distribution model. Watch this space!
Please note that the Special Offer has now finished. We have a number of 58 and Dandy fountain pens in stock so, if you missed out, please enquire.
It's that time of year again. A fine pen makes an excellent Graduation present. In case you weren't aware, we use the services of an expert engraver to personalise any silver Yard-O-Led pen. We also have a limited stock of Conway Stewart Doctor's pens (based on the 100 fountain pen).
