A collection of luxury pens will add flair to your writing desk and show off your fashionable side. These stylish and functional writing instruments are made of premium materials. You can use them every day or reserve them for special occasions and important letters. Staples has a large inventory of pens from a wide selection of reputable brands.
Choose a Fitting Luxury Pen Style Luxury pens come in a wide variety of designs and the right one to choose depends on personal preference and your writing habits. A fountain pen is a stylish addition to an executive desk or home office. Its timeless design, unique nib, and replaceable ink cartridges contribute to its reputation as a classic writing instrument. Choose a calligraphy pen for an art studio. Commonly associated with fine penmanship, this design emphasizes beautiful handwriting. Other popular luxury pen designs include ballpoint, rollerball, gel pens, or fiber tip models.
Besides design, exterior color is another important aspect of luxury pen style. A black pen has an understated elegance that is both subtle and powerful. Gold denotes luxury more than any other color and works well when the pen holder wears matching accessories. Silver, chrome, and brushed stainless steel are also equally exciting color options for a premium pen.
Consider Tip Design When Shopping for Luxury Pens The width of a pen's tip determines the thickness of the lines it writes. Fine pen points produce thin lines preferred by those with small handwritings. There are also extra fine and ultra fine points for writing with greater accuracy. Medium points are the most common and suitable for most purposes. Bold points produce broad strokes and thick lines. Choose a pen with this point if you have large handwriting.
What Kinds of Inks Do Luxury Pens Use? There are two types of pen inks: oil-based inks found in ballpoints and water-based inks used in fountain pens and rollerball models. An oil-based ink dries quickly when applied to paper and is less likely to smudge or bleed. Choose a luxury pen that uses this ink if you regularly take lengthy notes. Water-based inks flow more smoothly and leave a wet look on paper. Gel inks are also water-based. They are thicker than regular water inks, use pigments rather than dyes and are available in a wider variety of color tones.
What Are the Differences Between Ballpoint and Rollerball Pens? Ballpoint pens have a tip made of a hard metal ball lodged in a socket. The ball is usually made of brass, steel or tungsten carbide. A rollerball pen uses the same ball system but dispenses water-based or gel ink rather than the more viscous oil-based ink. Rollerball models require less pressure to write on paper. This makes them more comfortable for prolonged use and improves writing speed. A rollerball pen also writes more clearly and its inks are available in more colors. On the other hand, it is more likely to leak and runs out of ink quicker than a ballpoint pen. Whichever pen you choose, remember to pick up a new pack while shopping for new back to school supplies.
What Is a Multifunction Pen? Also called multi-pen, it combines multiple writing instruments in a single body. This pen can hold different colors of ballpoint or rollerball inserts and have a selector for switching between them. A multifunction pen can also combine a single pen, a mechanical pencil, and an eraser. There are also models that include highlighters and/or a stylus. You can shop for new pens or other great office supplies at Staples.
