Purchasing a pen

 
If you are looking to buy your first pen, a pen as a gift, or if you are a pen aficionado, Flax Pen to Paper is the place to go. We offer a wide selection of writing instruments ranging from limited edition fountain pens, to inexpensive but high-quality pens. Whether you are looking for a ballpoint, rollerball, or fountain pen, our goal is to help you find the perfect pen to match your needs. Here at Flax, we do not view pens as commodities, but as intensely personal possessions.
We view it as our responsibility to help you find that special pen that matches your handwriting, your style, your budget, and all of the personal preferences that go into choosing a pen. We are also more than happy to teach you everything about proper writing technique, how to clean your pen, and even about the appropriate paper to use with each type of pen! Everyone at Flax Pen to Paper is a self-confessed pen geek, and so we will go to great lengths to make sure that when you leave our store, you will do so as the proud owner of a new pen that you love!
