Protecting your fine writing pen
Unlike cheap, disposable pens and biros, a quality pen demands respect. So it's important to look after your Parker, Waterman or Lamy pen in order to ensure a lifetime of use. To extend your pen's useful life, make sure you follow our simple tips:
Keep the Nib Clean: Ensure the nib or end of your quality pen is kept clean, allowing ink to flow correctly. Simply wipe the nib with a dry cloth as required.
Use Your Pen Frequently: Regular use prevents your pen's ink from drying out or hardening, and ensures reliability.
Store Quality Pens Properly: When not in use, keep your pen in a cool, dry environment. This helps preserve the ink and ensures that your pen is always ready for use.
Use Gently: Pressing down hard while you write can cause excess stress to the nib of your pen, leading to snapping or bending – not a great end for any quality pen!
Always Close Your Pen: Closing your pen or putting a lid on will protect the tip of your pen from damage, keep the nib clean and stop the ink from coagulating and drying out.
By following these tips from First Stop Stationers, your pen could last you a lifetime!
