The biggest range of quality pens online
The Online Pen Company journey began in 2006, with a small, simple website selling a select few fine writing products and classic pens from our favourite brands. Since then it has grown to over 2000 products, worldwide shipping and a team of committed and enthusiastic staff with vast experience and specialist knowledge, whilst still maintaining the easy to use, simple to deal with values we were founded on.

SHOP BY PRODUCT
A fountain pen is a pen with an internal ink reservoir, and a nib that draws ink through a feed, on to paper. Fountain pens have a completely unique style of writing, and can be customised to a users personal preference, making them the perfect writing instrument for enthusiasts, artists and everyday users.
The ballpoint pen is a pen that feeds ink to the paper over a metal ball. It is a much simpler style of writing than any other type of pen and it is because of this that it is the worlds most used writing tool. Ballpoint pen ink is usually oil-based, which means no cap is required and the ink won’t dry out.
Liquid ink rollerball pens are ballpoint pens with a tiny point that have have been developed to use water based inks (which is why they have a cap fitted), giving a unique writing style and a deeper saturation in to the paper. They combine the ease and convenience of a ballpoint with the wet ink effect of a fountain pen.
A pencil is a narrow piece of graphite encased in either wood or a mechanical housing that can mark paper in a non permanent way. The vast majority of the pencils that we sell are mechanical, which is where a pen-like body is used and has a retractable mechanism to expose the pencil lead further as it is worn away.
