Fountains pens

Practical writing tools that are also beautiful, luxury desk accessories. While email messages and typed memos have replaced many forms of communication, a handwritten note adds a personal touch to thank-you notes, sympathy cards and private correspondence. Using pens with paper also offers an experience outside the fonts and formats of word processors, allowing greater freedom of expression when brainstorming or writing creatively.

A Modern Take on Fountain Pens
These products have changed considerably from the first nibbed pens that debuted in the 10th century. Laser-cut, stainless-steel nibs deliver ink smoothly, and cartridge-style reservoirs prevent messy spills. Disposable fountain pens take convenience a step further. They combine the smooth and fancy feel of a nibbed pen with sealed ink storage in a budget-friendly package. This makes them an excellent option for students or travelers. Select calligraphy pens that have a conductive stylus tip on the cap. Use it to virtually write or draw on a tablet or smartphone touch-screen.

Choose a Luxury Fountain Pen
A pen can be more than a writing tool; it can also make a statement about your personal tastes. Fountain pens come in a broad range of finishes and colors and add a subtle note of richness to an office desk. An assortment of nib widths delivers a customizable writing experience, and colored inks expand your creative writing options.

How Do Fountain Pens Work?
The ink-delivery system in these writing implements has three main components: the nib, feed and reservoir. The nib is the tip of the pen. It has a thin slit that delivers the ink to the point using gravity and capillary action. The feed forms a channel between the nib and the reservoir. Ink flows through the feed into the nib, and air flows into the reservoir to replace used ink. The final component, the reservoir, holds the pen's ink supply. A hard case encloses all three parts, and a separate cap protects the nib and keeps the ink from drying out.

How Do You Fill a Fountain Pen?
Early pens used a piston and lever to pull ink from a jar into the empty reservoir, a messy process. While some modern pens use a similar filling method, most use replaceable, prefilled cartridges.

Do Fountain Pens Require Special Care?
While these products are reliable and easy to use, they do need a bit of maintenance. Ink evaporates, even if the pen cap is on, and the dried-on residue can block the smooth flow of ink. Flush the pen once a month using cool water to remove accumulated deposits. Store pens with the nibs up to prevent ink from flowing into the tip.

Are Fountain Pens Hard to Use?
It takes a little time and practice to get comfortable with a fountain pen. Use a light touch when writing. Too much pressure on the nib can damage the tip or stop the ink flow. Hold the pen at an angle of 45 to 50 degrees to keep the ink flowing smoothly. You should also try to use your arm and shoulder when writing with one of these pens. Moving your whole hand while you write delivers steady pressure to the nib and produces a smooth line of ink. Staples also carries a wide selection of gel pens, rollerball pens, and brands like BIC pens.
