1. Let's determine which refill you need.|
You have a favorite pen. You don't see the 'brand' of the pen in our list. What do we do?
Many pens exist in the world that really aren't a known brand name or may have just had the 'brand' placed on your pen for a special production run. We get asked everyday for brand X refills or refills to fit a brand Y pen.
Sometimes even well known brands such as Eddie Bauer sell quite nice pens but then don't support the pen with refills.
Scroll your mouse over the 'Pen Refills' category on top menu to 'Shop the most common pen refills' by selecting the pen refill or pen category of interest.

Once we can determine whether you have a fountain pen, rollerball, ballpoint or multi-pen we can often find a refill to fit your pen.

The most commonly used rollerball refill shape looks like this:
5. Does your pen require that you to twist or click the pen to begin to write? Then you have a ballpoint or multi-pen.
