Frequently Asked Questions
We have included some questions that we have had customers ask us over the years so have put them here to help you make your decision.

A Short History of Pelikan
We have put together a little information on the journey of Pelikan from an ink manufacturer formed in 1838 to the giant stationary and luxury fountain pen company they are today.

View Previous Special & Limited Editions
We have been selling Pelikan since 2004 and over the years we have had the pleasure of seeing many of their beautiful and unique Special & Limited Edition pens which are no longer available.

Although we are unable to acquire any more of these exclusive pens, we thought that some of our customers may appreciate a gallery, primarily of those which we have been lucky enough to stock over the years, but also some we have not.

Hanover Visit
In the Summer of 2009, Ray and Ross visited the production factory, administrative headquarters and historical production factory of Pelikan in Hanover to admire some of the techniques used to make luxury fountain pens.
