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.

Sensa Pens were originally introduced in 1995 and then vanished about ten years later. We sold more Sensa pens during those ten years than any other single pen: period. That’s what a huge seller Sensa used to be. The patented grip section was a vastly treasured component and loved by thousands of consumers. The ergonomic Patented Plasmium ™ fluid gel grip was unique and obviously stress-relieving within minutes.
What happened? The Sensa brand simply disappeared through a few ownership changes. Consumers were distraught.
Time to Rejoice!
The new owners of Sensa have revived the brand, developed 2020 materials for the patented grip section and updated colors. Each Sensa pen is made from solid brass and lacquer coated in a choice of six fashion colors. A milled silver-plated pen top with the Sensa logo completes each pen. Winner of numerous design awards and featured in design museums the world over, Sensa pens takes writing to a new level of comfort.

Rollerball Versus Ballpoint. A Comparison.
There are several differences. While a ballpoint pen uses a thick oil-based ink, the rollerball pen uses liquid ink. This key difference makes the rollerball feel smoother and more liquid, giving it a more fluid action which is comparable to a fountain pen. This fluidity also translates to a rollerball pen generally having a finer writing line. On the other hand, a ballpoint pen does have a more controlled action and the refill lasts longer.
