Five thousand two hundred and eighty feet. That is the elevation of Denver, Colorado, the city in which the 5280 brand was conceived and designed. Situated a mile above sea level, the city is blessed with a rich culture and the unrelenting call of nature; the ever-present Rockies, our year-round playground is just a few miles to the west. From our eastern plains to the peaks of our beloved Rockies, inspiration is a part of our culture.
The 5280 brand celebrates this soaring Denver altitude, and the brand’s attitude, through its overt quality and enduring value.
Colorado Pen is thrilled to offer this ‘hometown’ brand, 5280. Designed by folks who know their pens, 5280 represents one of the greatest values on the market today.
Each time you take your 5280 Ambassador pen in hand you feel like the first time you put on a tux or evening gown. But feel free to dress any way you'd like when writing with this elegant fountain pen, rollerball or ballpoint. Traditional shiny black lacquer is trimmed in silver rhodium or gold plating. The new blue lacquer models are trimmed in silver and the new burgundy lacquer is trimmed in rose gold. Fountain pens have a medium point, steel nib, coated to match the trim. Both two-piece models have a click on cap and the one-piece ballpoint deploys with a twist. Feel like you're ready for a night on the town with the 5280 Ambassador collection.

As a young child, I listened to many adult conversations about "this new Ebonite". My father showed off his latest Kaywoodie smoking pipe with its shiny ebonite stem. The 5280 Ebonite collection is crafted from this "miracle" material, so my Dad would say. Hand-polishing creates the exquisite finish on both fountain pens and rollerballs in burgundy/black or a distinctive blue/black model. Step into the past with one of these Ebonite 5280 Denver-designed, fine writers.
The range of finishes and trims on the 5280 Majestic collection is amazing and quite novel. Take the PVD gunmetal ceramic coated 5280 Majestic Pinstripe. Created in honor of Adolph Coors, the "cold mountain brewing giant", and the ceramic business that kept him afloat during prohibition. Popular purple and blue colors have semi-transparent lacquer over a subtle herringbone pattern. These bright color finishes, as well as the shiny black lacquer and the carbon fiber model are all trimmed in silver rhodium. The unique copper model is trimmed in rose gold. This pen is a stunner. Select from fountain pen, rollerball or twist-top ballpoint. All the 5280 Majestic finishes are awe inspiring.
