A.T. Cross fountain pens, rollerballs and ballpoints refill with some of the finest ink ever manufactured. Customers often select Cross rollerball pens as gifts because they like the way the Cross rollerball refill performs. If you're unsure about the rollerball refill for your Cross pen, there are two choices. A slim rollerball refill for very thin Cross rollerball pens such as the Century Classic and Spire series. More commonly, the regular Cross rollerball is used, particularly in the regular diameter pens. All Cross rollerball pens have a removable cap when ready to write, with the exception of the Edge and the Matrix. Cross ballpoints deploy with a twist of the top. The standard refill has a slim metal tube with a threaded plastic top piece. In the Cross brand you have fine, medium and broad point choices, all with standard ballpoint ink. Monteverde has a great option in liquid ink and a rainbow of colors. Your Cross fountain pen, again, has two options in ink cartridges - slim or regular. If your Cross is very slim (Century Classic, Spire), then the slim cartridges. All others use the standard Cross cartridge. An ink converter and numerous bottled ink options exist as well. Just click on the fountain pen window below. Cross multi-pens use standard mini ballpoint refills and .5mm lead. Click on the window below to match your exact refill needs from ballpoints, to lead, to erasers.
Do you like standard, oil-based and waxy ballpoint ink? Go with the Cross ballpoint refill available in a fine, medium or broad point and black, blue or red. If you find liquid, water-based ink flows better for you, look at the Monteverde refill to fit Cross ballpoint pens. That comes in TEN ink colors!

Your Cross fountain pen takes one of two different sized ink cartridges.
Slim Cross fountain pens like the Century Classic and Spire series use a SLIM ink cartridge.
Regular diameter fountain pens use the standard Cross ink cartridge. If you received an ink converter with your Cross fountain pen, then you have a standard size, as there was never a converter available for the slim fountain pens. If you want to put that converter to use, look at all the bottled ink colors and brands below. If you want to purchase a converter but are unsure which one you need, give us a call at 720.259.1601. That can be a little tricky.
Most Cross multi-pens and pencils use standard mini ballpoint refills and .5mm pencil lead. We recommend Monteverde liquid ink mini ballpoint refills available in eleven colors. If you like standard ballpoint ink in your multi-pen, Fisher offers a mini ballpoint refill that can be snapped to the exact size you need. We also carry the most popular version of erasers from Cross.
Your Cross mechanical pencil may use an entire cartridge containing many pieces of lead. Use your old refill as a guide and compare our offerings in size and configuration. Numbers printed on these items are usually lot numbers and change consistently, so we can't use them as a reference. If in doubt, give customer service a call at 720.259.1601 and we will certainly try to help.
Your lucky day! If you have a Cross rollerball pen that fits the standard refill, you are using one of the most popular refills in the industry.

It also has gel ink, very rare in rollerball refills.
If you have the original, standard size rollerball, you may also consider a fibre tip version or a refill that contains oil-based, waxy ballpoint ink. (Yes, ballpoint ink for your Cross rollerball.) We even carry a Cross Matrix rollerball refill for those of you with this unique Cross pen from the past. Just click on the rollerball window below to see all the choices.
