  • Mad for Metallics - Our Favourite Gold and Silver Stationery

    Just because it is metallic doesn't mean it has to be expensive, right? We have rounded up a whole host of luxury and affordable products that appeal to those with an eye for all things that glisten and shine.

    Here at Executive Pens Direct we have huge range of pens with gold and silver trims and finishes as well as pens that are pure gold or silver in colour. We have chosen just a few of our favourites that we think will satisfy anyone with a love for all things metallic.

    This lustrous offering from Fisher Space Pens is a compact pen, perfect for slipping into a pocket or bag and as shown in the image, when the cap is popped onto the end it creates a full length pen that is perfectly balanced for writing with. This pen also hides a little secret, like all Fisher Space pens it will write over greasy or wet paper, underwater, upside down, in high and low temperatures and of course in zero gravity space conditions.

    An ideal pen for the astronauts among us.

    F400GFrom Parker we have two pens at either end of the price scale but both are equally attractive and a pleasure to write with.

    The first is a pen that has only joined us in 2016, part of Parker's Jotter Premiumisation project. A Premium pen of the collection, this West End Gold Parker Jotter with contrasting gold body and cap writes smoothly and comes in an attractive, new-look gift box. A perfect treat for a gold-lover on a budget.


    Our second pen is a Parker Ingenuity in Pearl and Gold Metal. The glossy lacquer barrel is completed perfectly by the gold ring design and this pen uses Parker's innovative 5th generation technology for unmatched writing satisfaction. The nib of this pen adjusts and chisels itself when you first write with it, meaning it adapts perfectly to your writing style.

    If silver is more to your taste then look no further than this Laban Slim Line Ballpoint, complete with crystal clip. Made from 925 Sterling Silver and adorned with Swarovski crystals, this pen makes a wonderfully generous gift whether you have someone in mind or simply want to spoil yourself.

    SSLB_1_Zoom_1We can also engrave this pen making it truly unique and bespoke to the recipient.

    Now for something a little different!

    This Gold Feather Quill Calligraphy set makes a wonderful gift for someone or treat for yourself and gives you a taste of traditional writing tools and techniques, it even includes a scroll that tells you the Story of Calligraphy. The only problem you'll have is not wanting to take it out of the box.

    We also have this quirky Troika Helicopter Desk Tidy that has a magnetic front to keep your paperclips handy and four removable 'blades' which are actually pens. You'll find three ballpoints pens and one highlighter in this helicopter and they all have a shiny chrome finish to match the rest of the tidy.

    Finally, we love a Sharpie as much as the next person but these Metallic Sharpies are a must in our stationery collection. Ideal for all kinds of activities whether it be poster making, scrap-booking or writing cards, these pens are designed for writing on dull and dark surfaces and their ink is fade and water resistant, making them permanent on almost all surfaces.

    metallicTIP: These Sharpie pens are perfect for adding a shiny, metallic touch to Christmas cards and gift tags.

    The Winner of the Troika Yellow Construction Pen...

    Lydia Frew with her entry below

    He makes me laugh
    When I want to cry
    He explains the world
    When I don’t know why
    Always there with sage advice
    Patient when I need telling twice
    He’s a football crazy, golfing Dad
    But the best one I could ever have.
