Which type of pen refills do I need?
When you've found a match, why mess with success? From the most perfect planner for you to the pen you prefer for jotting down notes and reminders, refills make it easy to keep the products you know and love going strong. The key to finding the right refills is compatibility. Keep your luxury Cross® pen at the ready for signing contracts with a set of refills in black or blue, and make sure your TUL® pen is ready for edits with compatible red-ink pen refills.
How do I refill ballpoint and rollerball pens?
Maintain those smooth, skip-free strokes by keeping a stock of refills for all your favorite rollerball and ballpoint pens handy. While some rollerball, gel or ballpoint pen refills have universal compatibility, others fit specific brands or types of pens, so it's a good idea to keep that information in mind while shopping for office supplies. Most office pens twist apart at the barrel, allowing you to remove the old refill, replace it with a new one, and screw the barrel back together again in a flash. If your favorite pen is retractable, keep an eye out for a tiny spring that'll go around your refill - it's the key to deploying the tip with a press of the button.
How do I refill a fountain pen?
From everyday correspondence to calligraphy for special invitations, fountain pens deliver smooth-flowing ink and a contoured nib that makes each letter a work of art. Figuring out how to fill a fountain pen depends on the type of pen you have and the type of ink you prefer to use. Most fountain pens accept prefilled ink cartridges in specific sizes, while others use a converter or ink bladder that accepts liquid ink from a separate bottle. Like you would with other types of pens, keep an eye out for specific compatibilities while making replacements. Your refills should fit your pen just as perfectly as it suits you.
