Passionate About Pens
We love pens and pencils. Whether you're looking for a reliable rollerball or a finely-made fountain pen, there's satisfaction in using a quality product. There are dozens of major international manufacturers with vast catalogues of high-quality, interesting and unique items. So why are we overrun with cheap junk? Well, the big stores prefer you to buy the own-brand stuff they've commissioned from China at the lowest possible price. The competition for space among the famous pen brands has never been greater and the result is that it can be hard to find your favourite writing instruments.
Pens For The People
In your local stationery shop, assuming you have one, you can buy pens in whatever quantity you like. Trouble is, they don't have the range; they don't stock all the colours; they don't carry the refills. Not their fault - there just isn't space and local demand to stock the vast range of products available.
Online office supplies sites have bigger ranges, but you have to buy in 12-packs, often pay a hefty delivery charge, and even they don't have that elusive purple ink version of your favourite pen.
This is where Cult Pens comes in: the biggest range of pens on the net; all available in whatever quantity you like; with all the ink colours, nib sizes and refills we can lay our hands on.
Buy individual pens and pencils from our vast range to satisfy your inner pen geek; or buy packs of your hard-to-find favourites at prices comparable to the office supply giants.
Economical + Environmental
A huge number of pens are refillable yet for some reason many retailers are reluctant to sell refills for the pens they sell you. We guarantee to supply any refill available in the UK for all pens and pencils that we sell.
What's The Catch?
No catches. UK delivery charge is just £1.50 for small orders and orders over £10 are carriage-free. Our prices are 10% to 50% below shop prices and we have some of the best prices on the internet too.

Don't Take Our Word For It
A selection of genuine customer feedback:
Would like to say "Thank you for an extremely swift turn around from placing initial order to date of receipt- I think it was 24 Hrs !!!!!!
A very smooth and simple process and would certainly recommend you.
Delighted, as always, with the superb service and great products. Thank you.
The replacement refills arrived this morning - thank you for your help.
I understand what you said about the refund, and thank you for returning the money to my credit card. I shall make a donation of £5 in the name of Cult Pens to our local RSPCA animal refuge.
As always, it's been a pleasure to deal with you.
Following your recent recommendations I purchased a Pilot Capless pen and a Pentel Kerry pencil from you recently.
I am writing to say how much a pleasure it is to use both.
The prompt way you dealt with the order puts most firms to shame.
With this kind of service I see no reason to look elsewhere for future purchases.
I wanted to complain about the appalling service I've received from Cult Pens. I placed an order yesterday lunch time and it's taken at least 20 hours to arrive on my doormat. I at least expected delivery by elves overnight by 5am.
Thank you very much for swapping them for me, I think Cult Pens is one of the best websites I've ever used for the choice and customer service.
Many thanks again.
I've said it before, but I'll say it again...your service and efficiency is absolutely impeccable. If there were a Top Internet Supplier Award, I'd give it to you :) I don't know where I'd be without you! Many many thanks,
Just a quick thank you for the polite and professional service you provided.
Even though I had left it to the last minute to order my wife's present, you were able to get it sent to me the next day. I appreciate that Royal Mail can take some of the credit, but even so, well done for remaining calm whilst I was panicking!
The pen is fantastic and I will be ordering myself one shortly. I have no qualms in recommending you to my friends and colleagues.
Just thought I'd let you know my order was delivered today. I'm delighted and am very impressed with your service and order processing times. It is very refreshing to deal with such a customer focused business.
It's not often I write to companies after ordering online but on this occasion I felt I had to. I placed two orders on seperate days with your company - both were acknowledged within 30 mins, orders despatched within two hours and both arrived day after order placed all free postage. I also needed after-sales advice which I received within 1 hour of my email, have to say service exceptional congratulations to Cult Pens will certainly be ordering again and passing on your web page to friends and family.
Just a note to say thank you for exemplary service and despatch of ordered items.
The web site is one of the clearest and easiest I have ever used, and your choice of pens isn't too bad either.
Thank you for your excellent service. You excel at:
* Range and availablity
* Speed, ease and depth of web-site
* Speed of processing orders and Delivery
I 'bookmarked' you months ago as my headline suppliers!
Your website is easy to use and navigate, you communicate well with your customers (letting us know all along the sales process what is happening), the postage is very well priced and the speed of delivery is excellent. Can you tell that I love this site (& the products)? Some women buy loads of shoes and bags - I have always loved stationery and fountain pens - particularly ones that come in pink & purple which are just fab.
Another satisfied customer.
I just wanted to say what a fantastic website you have and that I really appreciated the friendly and helpful way you answered my queries. Also I received the items the next day - brilliant!
I ordered my Schmidt refills yesterday, slightly cautiously as they were the cheapest on the web - and they arrived at my home address this morning. Nice job - feel free to use this on your site.
After receiving some hard to find pens as a present I was disappointed to see that they'd ordered them incorrectly. I knew they were from Cult and e-mailed the site, I got a response later in the day and the kind folks agreed to let me change the pens even though they had made no error whatsoever.
I changed the pens, the replacements arrived within a day of my return arriving with Cult and they kept me updated at each stage letting me know when the pens would arrive. Needless to say I'm delighted and have ordered more from them and will tell my friends. Thanks Cultpens for the great service and keeping a stock of very hard to find pens outside of the U.S saving me about $40 in packing never mind taxes!!
I just have to contact you to thank you on your fantastic service. I am a crafter and new to Copics. I've always wanted to try them but believed them to be out of my price range. I googled and found you and was pleasantly surprised by your prices. The fact that you offer free P+P over £10 was a major factor in my choosing you especially as you state that you deal with orders so quickly. I have placed two orders thus far. The first I received within a couple of days and was thrilled. The second order was despatched within an hour or so of me placing the order and arrived less than 24 hours after I placed my order!! You tick all the boxes-great price, great selection of items, free P+P over a very reasonable £10 spend and super fast despatching of orders. I am delighted to have found you and will be placing another order soon. I live in a small town and buy the vast majority of everything I need on the internet. Yours is by far the best all round package. So thank you very much, please pat yourselves on the back and thank all concerned with your company as I am a very happy customer indeed. Wishing you continued success.
Just a quick mail to tell you how delighted I was by your company's service:
1. Excellent range of products - so many, I had difficulty choosing!
2. Efficient and easy to use website
3. Quality products - the Parker multipen is a delightful writing instrument (and I speak as someone who had one of the first production Rotring multis nearly 20 yrs ago)
4. Fast delivery - order Monday night, rip package open excitedly Wednesday.
I hope to have the pleasure of using your company's service again. In the meantime, I have started recommending you to, well, anyone who will listen!
I have today received the above order of which I am delighted with.
This is the third occasion on which I have availed myself of your services and I think your service and value for money leave nothing to be desired.
I will always use you in the future for this type of product and will recommend you to others.
Again I must congratulate you on superior service; ordered late on Sunday
night; in my hands on Tuesday morning.
Many thanks for a great website, keen prices on excellent products, and, as
I say, consistently superior service.
My order arrived this morning and yet again I have to congratulate you on the speed of your service - it is the best.
I am sure there will be future purchases but if you wish to use my name as a customer testimonial, please do so, I cannot praise your company highly enough. Regards,
Let me congratulate you on your excellent service. I received my order less than 24 hours after submitting it, it was correct, and your system for ordering is clear and hassle-free. This is the most positive experience of ordering online I've had!
THANK YOU to all at Cult Pens
Received delivery today of my favourite pens. You have made a cranky/fussy author very happy! Wish you all a great day.
I want to thank you for the excellent service from your firm. I have shopped online with you several times and I am delighted with the way you repeatedly deliver a top class service.
Thanks for the speedy turnaround on this order. These pens are a nightmare to find so its great to know I've got a reliable source. Thanks.
Just the fact that you took extra steps to help me figure out what was going on is a clear indication that you do know excellent customer service. So again, thanks very much. You deserve a lot of credit.
Again, thank you for your hard work and excellent customer service.
BS, Wisconsin, USA
Twice now I have ordered pens from yourselves and I am delighted with the recent delivery of Pilot G-Tec C4's - they are brilliant. All round an excellent service. Thank you and Well done
Just a note to say a 'Big Thank You' for the order I placed on Sunday that arrived on Tuesday. Fantastic service, good prices and an excellent choice.
I shall be shopping with you again!!!
I'd like to thank you for your marvellous service. I've placed three orders with you in recent weeks and each one has been delivered with great speed and efficiency. Your product range is fantastic - there's no way I could get the items I ordered from any of my local retailers.
Hello Cult pens. I've ordered from you twice now, and both times you've been the fastest online shop I've ever ordered from. Also, your prices are great, as well as your range. To be honest, I think I'll be ordering from you for the rest of my career.
AMAZING SERVICE, Thank you very much.
What an excellent shopping experience, value for money and a great website!!
I'll be spreading the word to family, friends and work colleagues...
Just to say thank you for your delivery which arrived this morning. A pleasure to do business with you!
Many, many thanks!
I am *very* impressed with your website and your business.
Your website is one of the better sites I've used in a while and your response time as well as the rapid feedback to orders, emails (like your reply).
Kudos to you and your team and may you prosper!
Many thanks for taking the time to check - another sign of the excellent service you have provided so far!
It has been a pleasure dealing with you :-)
JA, Massachusetts USA
I am very impressed with your website which is so easy to navigate. No messing about and very clear thus a real pleasure.
What a terrific service - Goods ordered yesterday afternoon from Devon and delivered in York at 07.45 am this morning. Couldn't be bettered. Thank you very much.
Wanted to drop you a quick note letting you know we received order (9 dozen G-Tec4 pens) and all looks to be well. I appreciate your handling of this order (since I haven't ever ordered out of the USA I did not know what to expect) and the quick responses when I had questions. Hope to do business with you again in the near future and with best wishes.
CJ, Illinois, USA
Thank you for the exceptional service and communication.
Blimey, you lot are efficient - received them today. You have my business for life!
Thank you for the pens and refills, which arrived today. I have been using these pens for many years and have a great deal of trouble getting hold of them. Thank you for such efficient, fast and accurate service. The website is also v easy to navigate and use. I will recommend you to everyone who appreciates pens!
This order arrived this morning. This is the second time I've ordered from you and both times I found items from you that I couldn't buy locally, at good prices, and with blisteringly fast delivery.
Thanks for your great service.
Thanks so much for such great service (and great products) - your site is bookmarked and will be the only place I get my writing supplies from!
Thank you very much for the speedy despatch of the Parker ballpoint refills which I received the next working day! I have had no success at all in obtaining the broad ones locally, so the simplicity of doing so from you was a real relief.
Many thanks for a speedy service. I will be back the next time I need anything similar.
Great service. I am very pleased with the speed at which I have received my order and the ease of ordering via your site.
I will have many 'happy' hours of marking and report writing with the pens!!!
Just had to thank you for such a quick, easy and efficient service. I ordered some cartridge refills for my son's left handed pen (Pelikan) which I had not been able to find locally despite much searching. Someone suggested I use the internet - your name came up - I ordered the cartridges on Tuesday afternoon and they arrived Wednesday morning. Fantastic!! I only wish I'd bought the pen from you in the first place because I paid almost double the price you are selling it for.
I would just like to commend you on your excellent service - the refills arrived this morning! Many thanks.
Just wanted to say Thank You for the excellent service. The pens arrived earlier this morning. Great Job.
Just want to congratulate you on your excellent and rapid service. The pens arrived this morning and my lad was thrilled with them. I'm sure he will be the envy of his school friends and I shall certainly tell them where they can order some for themselves!
Thank you so much for the speedy delivery and our best wishes to you for Christmas and much success in 2007.
Just placed an order. First visit. Great site. Great prices. Love the over £10 free postage....
Thanks very much for your help, you have provided the best service that I have encountered on the net in a long time!
TH, West Midlands
I just wanted to compliment you on your excellent service and communication. I ordered ballpoint pen refills yesterday, and they arrived in this morning's post. Couldn't ask for better than that. Would definitely recommend to all.
I would like to thank you for your wonderful service. I have received the items I've ordered the 26 jan 2007. If we were on Ebay, I would leave a very positive feedback on you! Be sure, I will deal again with you. Thanks a lot.
I am writing to thank you for you excellent service. I received immediate email confirmation of my order and then an email in Wed 7th Feb to say my goods had been shipped, then they arrived extremely promptly on Thursday 8th Feb.
Thank you for keeping me up to date on my order and for your amazingly prompt delivery. I will certainly use and recommend you in the future.
Why deprive a penguin of an honest days work?
Hi! Now you have sent me Theee Pen! Pelikan Souverän 400 - perfect in size, delicate design and works. And again, Cult Pens homepage is perfect, everything in stock and fast! delivery. Thanks again!
Many thanks for my order which arrived this morning.
I appreciate your efficiency and prompt service. Much better than the main Stationery shop in Lincoln...who simply told me "Pentel don't make these any more"! Thanks again!
You guys rock!
