Mail in ballots are arriving around the country. Can we encourage you to use an American made pen to make your important selections? Our Ink Ball writing pens, Minimalist and Independence, both feature a Schmidt Technology Ink Ball tip. Not only does this writing tip feel like the best ‘ball pen’ ever, but it’s also dramatically less expensive than ballpoint or rollerball refills. Simply plug your ink cartridge in and write away.
Choose and use an APC Ink Ball Independence or Minimalist and we’ll ‘encourage’ you with a 15% savings.
Since 1945, Americans have favored the ‘ballpoint’ writing mode. Even today, 60% of ‘fine writing instruments’ are the ballpoint variety. Why? It’s cheap and convenient. But is it really the least expensive way to write with a ‘ballpoint’ tip?
Choose our Ink Ball technology and writing just became significantly less costly. Our Ink Ball tip uses a simple plug and play liquid ink cartridge. Each box of six cartridges is equal to about two ballpoint refills. A box of ink cartridges costs $3.50. Our average ballpoint sells for $7 - $11. Choose to use your ink converter and a bottle of ink and the expense drops by half again!
We offer what we believe through our experience to be the finest quality inks sold anywhere. Through extensive in-house testing conducted on extensively used fountain pens returned for clogging, poor flow, and no startup of ink flow, we’ve found our proprietary formula to allow for years of leaving the cap off and instant startup.

The refill in your pen main is the main source of writing pleasure.

This allows you to choose exactly the line you want in the precise color and point size you desire. When selecting additional refills, take your time, as you have an amazing amount of choices. All of which will fit perfectly into your APC Independence twist-top ballpoint pen or our indestructible Minimalist ballpoint. Let’s start filling that pencil cup!
