NOTICE: Peter Ford the founder of MrPen and Italix Pens at the age of seventy four plans on retirement at the end of 2021 at which time the company will close down. it is possible we will find a buyer for the business who has the vision and skill set, to continue grinding the nibs that Italix pens feature but this we feel it is unlikely. If we have stocks remaining at the end of 2021 we will continue to trade until the stocks are exhausted.  Some models and some range colours will become exhausted before the end of 2021 and will not be replaced. MrPen and Italix are extremely profitable companies and it is our intention to continue trading strongly until all stocks are exhausted. Thank you for your custom and we wish to thank all the wonderful customers we have acquired from the UK and around the world. If you have been promising yourself an Italix brand pen, now is the time to make your purchase. 1st April 2021


Addition to notice above dated 30. August 2021
We have commissioned restocks of some pens to keep stocks balanced, however it is unlikely that our stocks will be exhausted by the year end and we shall continue trading until all stocks are gone. This action is likely to take us well into 2022. We shall keep our customers advised as to the closure date when this is known.


The company is family owned and operated and heavily service biased. Fast efficient service is the rule offering 24 hour service where possible. We also operate with substantial stocks which gives us the benefit of being able to service orders quickly and the buying power to obtain the very best terms from our suppliers. Our sites offer the very keenest prices and special deals which is testimony to our good relationships with manufacturers.
