Below you can see all of the refills we offer by the type, or ‘mode’. Each mode like Ballpoint or Rollerball, has a brief explanation to help assure you that you are choosing the correct refill for your exact pen.
Here you will see every ballpoint refill we carry. Make your choice carefully or if you'd like a 'hand', give us a call at 720.259.1601.
In most cases, if you twist the top or click the top of your pen, it is a ballpoint and one of these options will fit. 99% of the time the numbers you see on your dry refill identify when the refill was made but not its stock number.
You can scroll down to locate your brand of refill and identify one that looks the same, then view the length under "Specifications" and measure your old refill to confirm you've got the right fit.
But don't stop there, be sure to look for other manufacturer's options that are the same size and configuration. You may have other ink and point size choices. For example, Parker-style ballpoint refills are offered in three ink types, three point sizes and ten different colors. Select from standard ballpoint ink, liquid ink or gel ink.
Notice the brand name on your refill. If it says ‘Parker’ you have a huge choice. Anything named ‘Parker Style’ will fit. Brands which are designed for the Parker Style refill are: Monteverde, Visconti, American Pen, Schmidt, Montegrappa or Pelikan
If there’s no brand obvious, look at the very
top and the very bottom to match your dry refill
You either have the world’s most common refill, Parker
Style or you have one of these proprietary brands: Montblanc, Lamy, Cross or
Waterman all shown below
If you have a pen that offers multiple ballpoint choices, you're at the right place for new refills. Most brands of multi-pens utilize the same mini ballpoint refill. It measures just a little over 2-1/2" long and is a straight tube with a very small point. Colorado Pen offers a wide range of colors in the Monteverde mini ballpoint refill. This Monteverde refill utilizes liquid ink, the lowest viscosity, for smoother writing. But always remember to retract your ballpoint before pocketing, as this ink will leach into fabric quite readily.
Your multi-pen may also feature a pencil point. The correct lead is determined by diameter and most multi-pens use either .5mm or .7mm lead. If you're also shopping for eraser replacements, those are manufacturer specific and usually require your multi-pen brand to select the correct ones.

And for those who would find a pda stylus point useful, Colorado Pen even offers one of those. It can be installed in place of one of the ballpoint tips.
Most fountain pens utilize ink cartridges. If your pen is a piston fill model, it will refill only with bottled ink. If you would like to use bottled ink, but have only used ink cartridges in the past, then look at the Converters to locate a fit for your brand of pen. Make your choice carefully or if you'd like a 'hand', give us a call at 720.259.1601.
If you are shopping for ink cartridges and do not have a used cartridge for reference, look for your brand of pen in the list of cartridges. If you cannot locate your brand, many fountain pens have been designed to fit the international-sized ink cartridges. They are one and one-half inches long and fit in most barrels. They also have a uniform "neck" which fits in many fountain pens. We carry numerous brands, all of which contain the water-based liquid ink commonly used in fountain pens. Colors abound in either the Colorado Pen or Pelikan brand.
If you are shopping for bottled ink, Colorado Pen carries premium Edelstein ink from Pelikan, our own exceptionally large bottles of Colorado Pen, Waterman or Pelikan standard ink. All of these are available in a wide range of colors.

If you would like to use bottled ink, but have only used ink cartridges in the past, then look for your brand of pen to see if we sell an ink converter designed by your pen's manufacturer. If you do not see your brand of fountain pen or do not know the brand of fountain pen, then it may be best to call customer service, 720.259.1601, and answer a few questions so we can decide together which ink converter may work in your fountain pen.
