About Us - I Need A Pen

From experience we know how challenging it can be to find that one, particular pen.

I Need A Pen specialises in hard-to-find pens. Special edition pens, older editions, pens that have sold out, or ones that are only available in other parts of the world. We want to help collectors round out their collections and help individuals find that one, exceptional pen.

As more and more of our lives move into the digital sphere, we want to help keep people connected to the tangible world. The act of writing is an art and I Need A Pen is here to ensure you practice your craft with the right implement.

We have been involved in the pen industry for nearly for a decade. We founded Fontoplumo in 2012, which sells a wide range of writing instruments. Initially, Fontoplumo was an online store, but in 2016 we opened a location in the Dutch city of Delft where pen lovers can see our continually changing selection. We’ve even worked with some of your favorite pen brands to create unique special editions.

We pride ourselves on our excellent customer service. The I Need A Pen webshop gives you the ease of 21st-century shopping but you’re always welcome to contact us for personalised service. We know what it is like to struggle to find that special, specific pen. We’re on the lookout for some ourselves.

 We are always on the lookout for pen collections – either from private collectors or from other businesses. If you are interested in selling, please contact us about a possible acquisition.
