The Pear Tree Pen Company Logo

I am heading off to warmer climes in a little while and, until March 3, the Pear Tree Pen Company will be left in the capable hands of my assistants Crystle and Mike. So don't be afraid to order anything while I'm gone, and feel free to call the store at 1-888-6789-PEN if you have any questions. The primary number (734-474-7983) will be unattended as I soak up the sun and the surf on some tropical island. I won't have cell phone or email access, so please don't be alarmed if your messages aren't returned right away.

Of course, this is the annual business meeting of the Pear Tree Pen Company, LLC, so it's all tax-deductible. Isn't it? (And if you work for the IRS, I'm only kidding, so please, no audits!)

See you when I get back. Play nice.

New Diamine Fountain Pen Ink Colors

Diamine's long awaited new fountain pen inks have arrived, and the Pear Tree Pen Company recently received a nice selection of them. I expect several of these inks to be very popular and, if I may say so, it's about time Diamine came out with a nice brown ink. Only they weren't content with just one - they introduced three - Saddle Brown, Burnt Sienna and Raw Sienna! If you've seen the reviews of these new inks on the Fountain Pen Network, Pentrace or elsewhere, you know how nice these new Diamine inks are. So what are you waiting for? Go here to order your bottle today!

    Please Update Bookmarks/Links to the Pear Tree Pen Company

    The Pear Tree Pen Company has been working on a major overhaul of its website and shopping cart. We are nearly finished, and expect to "go live" sometime during the first week of March. With that project comes a completely new web host and server. Our primary domain,, will continue to function, but the subdomain to which many of you link ( will cease
    operation within the next few weeks. Therefore, to avoid "dead links," you may wish to update your bookmarks to reflect the proper site name. will continue to point to the subdomain until the switch is finally made, so there should be no interruption in your ability to access the site for all of your shopping needs!
