Family run, since 2004

Pen & Ink Specialists

We have been selling pens and inks since 2004. We began with the renowned German brand Pelikan, and over the years have built up unrivalled knowledge of Pelikan. More recently, we have expanded and now offer writing instruments and accessories from many other manufacturers. We offer customers a great choice from entry level pens right up to exclusive and luxurious pens from some of the world's best manufacturers including Parker, Waterman, Sheaffer & Cross. We have a very comprehensive stock at our pen shop including some brands not easily available in the UK.

Family Run Since 2004

We have been selling pens and inks online since 2004 when founder, Ross Adams, finished his GCSE exams.

We started with Pelikan through a specific site - pelikanpens.co.uk which still runs today from the same premises.

Since then, we have grown and now have 9 staff based in Newport, South Wales.

Customer Reviews of Pure Pens' Service
I placed my order on Sunday evening and it arrived Tuesday with the post. Once again the service was fantastic and well packed. The only difficulty I had was which ink to put in my pen, lol.... I cannot fault Ross and the team, never had a bad order, keep up the good work guys and gals!
— John Simpson in Wakefield
Always great service from these guys. As a Welsh person now living in Scotland it's good to be able to support my compatriots from time to time. Excellent (and competitive) prices, quick delivery, what more could I ask for?
— Carolyn in Inverness
They have an excellent selection of fountain pens and inks which is exactly what I was looking for. And their customer service, should you need to get in touch, is responsive and helpful.
— Daniel in UK
Reliable, fast, and high quality -
I've ordered from Pure Pens several times, and the deliveries always come very quickly and with good packaging. One of my very favourite online shops!
— Customer in UK
I love the sample that you can get to test out some inks before making a bigger purchase. Pure Pens have always shipped pens and ink quickly and professionally. Plus you get the bonus of knowing you are supporting a (relatively) local company if you are in the UK.

Great company -
Pure Pens carry items and companies others in the U.K. do not, and I've always had good service, fast delivery and well-packaged goods from them. Noodler's, now Krishna inks, as well as their own inks.
