Fountain Pens (14)Petrarch wrote: "There is no lighter burden, nor more agreeable, than a pen." We would suggest that nothing could heighten the pleasure of writing more than a fountain pen. In an age of digital communication the fountain pen is more popular than ever. First time customers at our shop on Clarence Street in Ottawa are often surprised to discover such a large amount of space dedicated to fountain pen display and are always interested to learn that this is such a popular item for us. The reason is simple. Writing with a good fountain pen on fine paper is a sensual and calming experience that young and old alike appreciate.
Rollerball Pens (13)As their name suggests, rollerball pens have a unique feel when rolling across the paper. The ink in these pens is delivered to the roller nib in liquid form which, along with the roller mechanism in the nib, creates a gliding sensation while writing. The refills, which are easily replaced, contain liquid ink and therefore the nibs need to remain covered when not in use to avoid drying the nib section out.
Ballpoint Pens (13)Forget about that drugstore pack of 10 ballpoint pens that we all are familiar with. There is a whole other world of sophisticated and comfortable ballpoint pens that are a pleasure to write with. With their easily replaceable refills, ballpoint pens are convenient as well as beautiful. Available in a large range of designs and price points, the right ballpoint pen can be your friend for life!
Mechanical Pencils (11)As the owner of Paper Papier, I have the pleasure of holding in my hands many different types of mechanical pencils. One day many years ago I discovered the Faber-Castell E-Motion Pear Wood Mechanical pencil and to this day I keep it hidden away in a desk drawer so that it will always be there when I need it! For those writing projects that require the soft and gentle touch of a pencil lead, nothing can surpass the feel of a finely crafted mechanical pencil.
