Just to let you know that last week I ordered an engraved Pocket Watch and Pen, which were both delivered by 8am next day.  Wow, that's what I call service! 
The quality of both gifts is excellent and the service first rate. 
I would have no hesitation in ordering further products in the future and will certainly recommend your company and products to friends.

My order arrived today, and I just wanted to tell you how pleased I am with it. The presentation, engraving, and the pen itself are all exactly as I had hoped they would be. And it arrived the day after it was ordered as promised, which can sadly be a rare thing these days.
Thank you for a top rate service. The recipient is graduating from Canada's Royal Military College on Thursday, and is a budding writer. I know she will be as thrilled as I am with the excellent job you've done.

Good Morning,
I just wish to thank you for the Sheaffer Fountain pen I purchased from yourselves just before Christmas, it was a gift for my mum, hence the engraving that you did for me, but its the most beautiful present I have seen for some time!! I just felt that you should know how happy we are with the quality of the pen and the engraving! The whole service you offer - the pen, the engraving and delivery, is absolutely second to none and I just wanted to thank you!! I have already been asked by everyone who has seen the pen where it was from, so I have referred them all to yourselves!! Thank you!
Thank you, very kind regards and Merry Christmas!!

Dear Mr Ford,
firstly, thank you for your prompt and very kind service. I have received the pen and it is beautiful. My partner will be exceptionally pleased - thank you. It was an absolute pleasure doing business with you; I would have no hesitation in recommending you and indeed have already done so. Please feel free to paraphrase this as a testimonial on your website.
Further to this, would you be kind enough to confirm whether there is any particular type of ink you recommend and where we can purchase the cartridges for it when travelling? I should have asked at the time but I was so excited about the pen, I forgot.
Many thanks and very best wishes,

30th Nov 07

Spoke to you on phone earlier today re: 'modern'  fountain pen for 21st birthday present. Offered two choices - thank heavens it was only two! Very torn between your suggestions; both suitable and so right. After much dithering, have ordered the 'Plasma' simply because has convertible filling system. Hope the choice was the right one!
Valued your advice so much. Could not have discovered these two pens without your extensive knowledge of options available. Am also happy that my £30-£50 price bracket was not treated with disdain for this special present. (Not a lottery winner yet you know!)
I am sure both I and my son (on November 27th!) will be delighted with this pen. Again, thankyou.

("Thankyou for the presents they are ace, i absolutely adore the pen

Nothing short of excellent in my opinion. I'll be recommending you to

Hello Mr Pen,
What joy arrived at 7.55am today.  It is easily the best and the most expensive pen I have ever bought and I am VERY pleased with it.  Wish I had met you when I lived in Harrow many moons ago - come to think of it, you might not have been there all that time ago.(70s).
The ink bottle had come adrift from its packing but no damage was done and the pen is EVERYTHING I could have wished.  The last time I had a proper pen was in the 1940's.
MANY thanks

Dear Mr Ford

Thankyou for your delivery of this fine writing instrument. It does write very nicely and I am very chuffed at the regimental (well not quite dark enough but pretty close) ink.

Thank you also for the complimentary ink. The pen is truly good quality, less obvious than sterling silver pen and should serve for many years and many letters to come.

Just a quick note to say thanks for turning around our order so quickly
and efficiently. The pens arrived today and I'm very pleased with them.



Dear Peter,

                I would like to thank you for your constructive advice about my choice of pen which was clearly borne of an in depth knowledge and love of fine writing instruments as well as a personal insight into the hearts and minds of those who share this passion. Rare indeed are these attributes of which you can be justifiably proud. Having completed the transaction over the telephone just yesterday, I was amazed to receive my perfectly engraved pen today. With such a high level of service provision, your business deserves to flourish. The Cross Verve is a superb fountain pen, enhanced by the vivid colours of the diamine ink. Thank you.

Hello Peter,
      I'm just dropping you a few lines to say a very big "Thank You" for
the pens that arrived on Friday. After the recent loss of my old faithful
Sheaffer fountain pen that was bought by my parents when I was at school (a
long long time ago !!) it's an absolute pleasure to be able to write with
an instrument that flows smoothly across the paper again. I've tried a
couple of other "quality" pens but none can compare to the Sheaffer.
      Your excellent service and friendly approach (and not forgetting of
course your knowledge of writing instruments) is so very refreshing these
days. I will definitely be doing business with you again and will recommend
you to my friends and family.

Many Thanks & Best Regards, Paul

To Peter Ford and all at Mr Pen,

I am delighted to say that my “Churchill” arrived at 08:40 on Saturday the 12th March, in pristine condition.  Your customer care is exceptional, and I thank you for swift response in dealing with the issues I had.  You have secured me as a future customer of “Mr Pen”, it is so refreshing in this disposable age to know that there are still some companies out there that will go the extra mile to ensure that their customers are delighted.

Yours sincerely, Neil S - Gloucestershire

I just recieved my pen, and it's gorgeous.  Love it, and I hope my

I would just like to say that I have received the pens this morning and complement you on this exceptional and speedy service. The pens are excellent as is the engraving. It is very refreshing in this day and age to deal with a business that is so customer focused.
Thank you very much, I will have no hesitation in using you for further purchases and recommending you to others.

I'd just like to take the opportunity to say that the delivery was incredibly efficient, arriving the day after the order.  I was most impressed, and it is exactly what I was looking for as my daughter has the same kit and I have had some difficulty tracking it down, as promised to two of her friends. Thank you very much.
Yours sincerely C H

Dear Mr Ford
Just a note to say that the order of inks (plus the inkwell you included) arrived safely this morning at 6.45 am. I had a very enjoyable breakfast unwrapping the parcels and looking at all the inks, and working out which of my pens to use with the different colours!
Thank you for your excellent service.
Best wishes

Dear Mr Ford,
I wanted to thank you very much indeed for the superb service you provided to me in the purchase of a Cross fountain pen.  I bought this, through your website, as a present for a friend who was leaving the Army after 35 years service (which coincided with his fifty fifth birthday).  You very kindly arranged for the pen to be inscribed, gift wrapped, included a card and dispatched all with the minimum of fuss.  It arrived on the day required and proved the ideal present.
I would have no hesitation in using your services again and would recommend them to friends and colleagues.  I am more than happy for you to use this endorsement should you wish to do so.
Again, thank you very much for the superb service you provided to me,
Yours sincerely,
Lieutenant Colonel

I just wanted to say thank you for the extremely prompt and friendly service that you provided.  The fountain pen gift set I ordered for my husband's birthday arrived the next day and he is very pleased with it.  Thanks again for the excellent service.

Just a quick note to say thanks for the advice you gave me over the phone regarding a replacement nib for my Cross fountain pen.

You have saved me £65!  What's most impressive is the unbiased advice given which had your customer/potential customer's interests at heart.

PS - I retrieved the nib from the waste pipe - bought some Cross cartridges and now have a perfectly working pen.

Thanks again

Dear Peter

Thank you for recommending the Sigma fountain pen to me. It is first class quality and the nib is suitable for all kinds of handwriting styles. It has been some years since I have written with a pen of this quality, so I am a bit out of practise.

Just wanted to thank you for the prompt service. Ordered at 11.55 a.m. on the 30th Dec arrived at 07.30 a.m. on the 31st Dec, pretty impressive.
I must admit to being a little sceptical when reading the testimonials companies place on their own websites, but you lived up to your reputation. I can now give the pen as a present on the 2nd Jan.

Many thanks for such prompt service. The pen is lovely especially with the engraving - maybe my husband will not lose it this time! It is a pleasure (and unfortunately a rare one) to receive such excellent service. I   had searched all over Southampton for a quality pen and had no luck. Glad I found you on the internet.
