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. Hint. 99% of the time the numbers you see on your dry refill identify when the refill was made but not its stock number.
The first step is to decide if your pen takes a common Parker-Style refill or your brand of pen has a proprietary shape. An example of proprietary shapes are Waterman, Sheaffer, Cross, Mont Blanc and Fisher. Luckily, we have exact copies of these shapes for Mont Blanc, Cross and Sheaffer.
Options. Below, choose either the most common refill of all, Parker-Style or the Proprietary Refills. Here’s what a Parker-Style refill looks like.
Notice the ‘crown’ at the top. This identifies your refill as a Parker-Style.
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 Private Reserve brands.
On this page you'll find a quick and easy guide to all of the refills offered for your brand of pen and your specific writing mode. Please do not try to 'mix and match' to find a refill for your pen. If you are not sure of your brand or mode; just give us a quick call and we will find exactly what you do need: 720.259.1601
