  • 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.

    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.

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.

  • Brand New Parkers for 2016 - The Premiumisation of the Jotter

    We have BIG news for all of you Parker lovers out there, the Jotter has been redesigned and given a luxurious, premium look for 2016.

    parker_jotter_bannerAfter having undergone what Parker is referring to as a Premiumisation, the new Parker Jotter is made completely from metal unlike the previous part-plastic counterparts and it has coloured barrels in a range of to-die-for colours. We have two new Jotter collections, the Core and the Premium with a total of 10 new Jotters to tempt and tease you.

    In the Premium collection we have West End Gold, Bond Street Black and Diagonal Stainless Steel. The main design features for this range were taken from the history of the Jotter and previous crafted cap and barrel patterns that have been used on the Jotters since they first arrived on the scene in 1954.

    The Core collection we have chosen to showcase comprises seven Jotters, all inspired by London and its many Tube stations. In the image you can see (left to right): Kensington Red, Chelsea Orange, Portobello Purple, Waterloo Blue, Royal Blue, Bond Street Black and Victoria Violet.


    These new for 2016 collections have given a new life to the Jotter, reinventing it as a more luxurious looking pen that is still perfect for everyday writing as well as for giving as a gift on those special occasions.

    Despite these exciting changes the Jotter's signature click that we hear when extending the nib is still embedded in the design and Parker's Quickflow® technology is still present ensuring we can still enjoy that smooth, consistent writing performance that we are accustomed to with Parker products.

    A perfect blend of an iconic style and a contemporary design, the new Parker Jotters are up to date and would fit perfectly in the palm of the young professionals and fashion-conscious writers who seek a classy looking pen that is reliable and ideal for on the go, day-to-day writing.

    With the collection set to drop in April, we are fortunate to already have a few in stock: the Premium Bond Street Black and the Core Chelsea Orange, Kensington Red and Bond Street Black.

  • Platinum Modern Maki-e Collection

    We have some new, beautifully crafted additions to the site in the form of Platinum's Modern Maki-e fountain and rollerball pens. All decorated with intricate details by using a traditional Japanese technique called Maki-e, these pens are truly unique creations.

    To celebrate their arrival we decided to find out a little bit more about Maki-e and what the designs on the pens mean and symbolize in Japanese culture.

    Maki-e Bowl

    The literal translation of Maki-e is 'sprinkled picture' as the process involves Japanese lacquer being sprinkled with gold or silver powder to create the decorative design. With Platinum's Modern Maki-e range, the intricate art is created by combining screen printing and the use of real gold powder by the Maki-e craftsmen.

    To find out more and see the process and secrets of Maki-e check out this video.

    In the Platinum Modern Maki-e Collection there are six pens available, three fountain pens and three rollerballs with three different designs available for the pens.

    Modern Maki-eThe designs showcase two Cranes with Mt. Fuji, a Phoenix and a Bush Warbler in a plum tree, three very traditional and symbolic images in Japanese culture. The Crane or 'bird of happiness' is said to represent longevity, good fortune and the wings of the crane were said to carry souls up to paradise.

    The phoenix is seen as a messenger of good will and is a very positive symbol of high virtue and grace, it is also said to represent the unity of yin and yang and is a symbol of the imperial house.

    A favourite motif in Japanese poetry, the bush warbler is often associated with ume or 'plum' blossom. It is also a symbol of spring and in Japanese tradition the ume is often seen as a protective charm against evil.

    The dedication that goes in to the Maki-e art form is simply amazing and it shows that this traditional, historic craft still has a place in creating awe in the modern world. To shop the Modern Maki-e collection just click here.

  • New Visconti pens have just arrived

    For all the Visconti pen lovers out there we have some new additions that we are sure you are going to love.

    Say hello to two new Visconti Limited Editions, the Speakeasy and the Rainbow and a new collection that has given 2003 Opera pens a modern, metallic look, the Opera Metals collection.

    If you long to own something truly unique then there is no greater feeling than purchasing your first Limited Edition Visconti pen, making both the Visconti Speakeasy and Rainbow fountain pens an investment that you can enjoy for many years.

    The Speakeasy fountain pen is a red and blue coloured pen that gives homage to a period of rebellion and indulgence in 1920's America and Canada.

    The SpeakeasyA speakeasy was a somewhat code word for a place that secretly sold alcohol during the prohibition period, so named because you were not to talk too quickly or act nervously in case you arose the suspicion of law officials or the government. Passwords were often needed for access into a speakeasy and alcohol was given code names such as 'horse liniment' and 'coffin varnish' to keep the activities going on inside a secret.

    To incorporate this period of history into a pen, Visconti have crafted an attractive and classic looking pen but it also hides a secret of its own as within the pen is a hidden sanitised compartment which perfectly fits a shot of your favourite alcohol. A small window in the pen can also be revealed which lets the user know which alcohol is kept within the pen, a perfect gift idea for someone who loves luxury crafted pens and the odd tipple.

    The Speakeasy pen comes in a Visconti gift box along with a red hip flask that compliments the pen and completes the gift set.

    Visconti Speakeasy Fountain Pen with Liquor Stash Visconti Speakeasy Fountain Pen

    Speakeasy gift set

    Our next Limited Edition is the Rainbow fountain pen, part of Visconti's "Millenium Arc" collection.

    This stunning, iridescent pen showcases seven bright colours of the rainbow that all glisten in the light and are accompanied by a slick palladium trim.

    This pen is equipped with Visconti's advanced crescent filling system, so to refill your ink level you simply press the crescent mechanism on the barrel and when it is released, ink will be sucked from the bottle into the inner sac of the pen and you are ready to write.

    Rainbow open

    Both the crescent mechanism and the clip are arc shaped signifying the unity of the arc of history with the arc of time, this combined arc representing the continuity of time from the past to the future. A universal message that without our past there is no future as nothing can be created, nothing can be destroyed and what goes around comes back around.

    Finally we have Visconti's Opera Metals collection, a 2015 twist on a 2003 design.

    Opera MetalsThis new Opera design was created with the idea of combining the square and the circle which has resulted in a pen that is ergonomically shaped and perfect for comfortable writing. The unique squaring of the circle design of the pen is symbolic of the two laws which created and which preserve the universe: movement and stability.

    Made from anodized coloured avional, a strong aluminium alloy used in aeronautics for lightweight but highly stressed parts, this Opera Metal collection is available in four sleek finishes. Monza - a black design highlighted with cool red trim, Roadster - black with a yellow trim, Silver Shadow - silver with graphite trim and Speedboat - silver with vibrant blue trim.

    This new take on the iconic Opera collection is eye-catching, bold and perfect for the modern writer, available as both a Rollerball and a Fountain pen.

  • Silver pens to ward off Werewolves

    With Halloween approaching now is this time to invest in a few silver pens to have around the house and on your person in the event of a Werewolf attack.

    With plenty of ghouls and monsters around on Halloween it is likely that you will stumble across a werewolf or two - maybe even a pack of them if you're unlucky - so arm yourself with some knowledge as well as a silver pen.

    The tale of the werewolf being vulnerable to silver bullets is one of the oldest pieces of folklore around and stems from the mid 18th Century story of the Beast of Gévaudan.  The Beast was a man-eating wolf that terrorised the Gévaudan region of Southern/Central France.


    According to 'eyewitnesses' the Beast (or Beasts) was associated with kills within a circumference of 50miles around the region and took its victims lives by ripping out their throats.

    The reign of terror was ended when a hunter by the name of Jean Chastel, who struck the Beast dead with a silver gun loaded with silver bullets of his own making; starting to tale that werewolves can be killed with a silver bullet.

    In reality, it is likely that these 'Beasts of Gévaudan' were nothing more than regular wolves that were acting in isolation. Wolves were a problem for humans throughout the 18th Century with many people being killed, leading to legends being born such as this one.

    Still, this Halloween it's better to be safe than sorry. At Executive Pens Direct we have a brilliant range of silver pens for sale from top brands such as Laban, Waterman and Otto.

    Or even better why not give yourself a better chance of survival with our Fisher Space Pens? We have just the thing for protecting yourself against werewolves with the Fisher Space Bullet pen.

    Fisher Space BulletThis pen will not only protect you should you be attacked by a werewolf, but you will also be able to use it afterwards to write to the Mayor of the town to declare the beast dead and the town safe!

    Fisher Space pens are designed to work in all kinds of environment: upside down, underwater, even in zero gravity, so you can be sure that it can take care of a mere werewolf.

  • When to Buy Corporate Gifts

    Deciding when to buy corporate gifts can be difficult, and even when you have decided on the occasion, thinking of corporate gift ideas is another headache entirely.


    As well as Christmas, when corporate gifts are common, there is also potential for Easter to be a gifting occasion if you have a client who celebrates Easter. Then there is Eid Mubarak and all the other religious holidays that you can give gifts on if you have a client or employee who celebrates them.

    Having a good rapport with your clients is one way to ensure that you know what they celebrate and what their values are, making it easier to figure out when a corporate gift is appropriate.

    This knowledge will also help you determine if there are any milestones that your client or the company has hit that would be an opportunity for corporate gifts. Perhaps the company has recorded it's highest ever sales figures over the last quarter, or they might have won a particularly big contract. Although giving corporate gifts on these occasions may not benefit your business directly, it will help your business relationship and will ensure you are at the forefront of the client's mind when they may require your services. A good idea for this kind of scenario may be some of the corporate gift ideas in our bar and drink section.


    As well as buying corporate gifts for your external clients and business relationships, you must also remember the staff who are working for you. Giving gifts to your staff, even corporate gifts, will improve morale and make them feel like they are valued, making them more likely to work harder and retain loyalty. Personalised Keyrings, pens with an employee's name on or even a Personalised Paperweight are great ideas for small staff gifts.

    personalised paperweight

    If you have a small team, then you can provide luxury corporate gifts on important occasions like their wedding or if they are expecting a child, you can even mark the standard occasions like birthdays and Christmas. Larger teams may mean that you cannot afford expensive corporate gifts for occasions other than Christmas and perhaps birthdays, but this will still be well received and will show you care.

    As well as occasions in the lives of your employees you can also use corporate gifts to celebrate business achievements with them. If a particular team have performed exceptionally well and surpassed their targets, reward them! By encouraging your employees to do well and creating healthy competition you will drive your business forward and make everyone strive to go above and beyond their targets. Something as simple as an engraved pen with their name on can make a big difference to staff morale and ultimately performance.


    Use luxury corporate gifts to offer rewards that will encourage your employees to work their hardest, poor quality gifts will encourage poor morale as the employees will become disinterested in working for a mediocre prize.

  • Original Crown Mill Paper - For Quality Pens


    Executive Pens Direct are thrilled to announce that we now stock Original Crown Mill paper, one of the most distinguished papers in the world and suppliers or stationary to the Belgian Royal Family.

    The rich history of this paper begins in 1478 when Emperor Maximilian permitted Monks of the La Hulpe Monastery in Belgium to build a mill on the banks of the river Argentine.

    Two Centuries later this humble water mill became Royal Mill for the production of writing paper on the orders of King Charles II. He called the mill the 'Royal Paper Manufactory' and the mill continued to provide quality paper to the King and the Royal courts for many more years.

    In 1870 the founder of Crown Mill - Frederic Pelletier - opened a factory in Brussels for the manufacture of stationary such as envelopes and other writing implements. He began ordering the unique ribbed paper that had the appearance and texture of genuine hand made paper that the monks would have made and called it 'Original Crown Mill' paper.


    The successor of Frederic Pelletier still enjoys being the supplier of stationary to the Royal Court in Belgium and continues to provide the exceptional quality that has led to their title of the most distinguished paper in the world.

    Original Crown Mill paper are so proud of their heritage that all their products are stamped with a unique watermark so you can be confident that you have a genuine product.


    Writing paper of this calibre require quality pens to write upon them, perhaps one of our Lamy fountain pens or even one of our personalised Parker pens. Original Crown Mill paper would make an exceptional gift to go with one of our calligraphy sets, although whoever you are giving it to should be reminded of the paper's history and encouraged to practice calligraphy before putting their pen to this paper!

  • Desk Gifts - Perfect Christmas Gifts

    With so many people working in office jobs these days, the need to make your own desk individual and put your personal stamp on it is becoming more and more important.

  • Corporate Gifts: From a personalised keyring to letter openers

    As well as providing quality pens, we also have a fantastic selection of corporate gifts to choose from for all occasions.

    Giving a corporate gift is a perfect way to thank a company or person for their business or for whatever they have done to assist you. They are also good ways to curry favour amongst businesses to keep your company in the forefront of their minds.

    They are a useful way to ensure that business relations are good to allow you and your business to grow.

    The kind of corporate gift you give depends on the person you are giving it too. We have an excellent selection to choose from that will be perfect whatever gift you are looking for; whether you want leather journals or silver card cases.

    Corporate gifts can be engraved with either the recipient's name or the name of your company. Many choose to put the name of their company on the gifts to make sure that the recipient is reminded of the gesture whenever they use the gift.


    It is always a good idea to make sure that the gift you give is going to be useful to the person you give it to, so they can remember who it was who gave it to them. There is no use giving a money clip to someone who does not use one, as this will just be forgotten and will be a wasted gift.

    If you are giving a corporate gift, making it personal to them is a good way of making sure it is remembered. If they have a particular hobby it is a good idea to make your corporate gift relevant to that. A person who loves their cars may appreciate a steering wheel personalised keyring with their initials on. Someone who is a keen explorer or enjoys outdoor pursuits may appreciate a gift that has weather information on it such as a barometer.

    These are all things that should be considered when choosing a corporate gift to maximise the effect it has on the recipient.
