Hi Jim,

I recently purchased the Piano Finish Display (10 pens). This item exceeded my expectations - the workmanship of the build and finish, quality of the materials , and functionality were great. This product show cases my pens' colors and design well. I think the price when compared other manufacturers is very reasonable. This is a nice piece for my office furnishings.

Fast shipping and good customer service provided results in recurring customers.

Dear Jim,

Received the order 21119. The pens are stunningly beautiful. Precious works of art.

Thank you for the complimentary packets. The black Maple Wood boxes look majestic and beautiful with my name imprinted.

The name Christanand is my dad's invention. Anand is a popular name in India. It means 'joy'. There are several names like 'Paramanand' meaning Eternal joy. Devanand meaning 'Joy in God'. My dad was a good Christian man and he named me 'Christanand' meaning 'joy in Christ'.

Thanks!

Hi Jim,

I have used Private Reserve Velvet Black Ink for more than 20 years, and I consider it to be an extraordinary product. The only problem is it is difficult to find. Amazon directed me to Lanier Pens in Yelm, WA, and using the Amazon website I ordered two 60 ml bottles of Velvet Black. Unfortunately in transferring the order to Lanier Pens, Amazon switched the order to Private Reserve Tanzanite Ink.

Needless to say, I was disappointed when I received the Tanzanite Ink. However, when I contacted Lanier Pens via e-mail about the glitch that had occurred, Jim Lanier was more than gracious to promptly exchange the Tanzanite Ink for the Velvet Black Ink without reservation.

It is encouraging to know there are still gracious business people out there in the market place.

Hi Jim,

I was very impressed by the prompt and accurate fulfillment of my order. I received item days before scheduled delivery date and all items in the order matched what I requested.

I ordered this item from another seller a few months ago and received ONE broad-tipped refill and five fine-point refills in that order.

Thanks!

Dear Jim,

I just received the 36 Rosewood Fountain pen display case and it is beautiful to behold. As I told you, it was a gift on my 94th birthday. It is so well designed and engineered. The drawers move freely and the upper glass display has a small shelf behind it that gives it a much better look than most of the cases I discovered in my research. The price makes it a special bargain. It could easily sell for much more. And I appreciate the packing. It arrived without a scratch or minor breakage.

Thank you!

Hi Jim,

Mr. Lanier's craftsmanship and attention to quality and detail in his creation of pens/pen stands is second to none. I have ordered a multitude of pens from him of varied materials and sizes. Each one is unique in its own way. I'm able to tell him my personal color schemes and he creates each pen with meticulousness and pride.

I've also ordered several custom made pen stands that were crafted with the same aforementioned qualities.

He will take the time to respond to any inquiries you may have regarding his products whether they're simple or complicated. He backs up his work 100%. He has never disappointed me one time!

Jim,

I'm so glad I found your company!

I've searched intermittently for years for refills for some commemorative pens made by Quill. Not only did you have the refills, but you had the most reasonable pricing. And the refills arrived several days earlier than expected. My wife loves her pen, but was frustrated that I could not find a refill; you've made her very happy!

Kudos to Lanier Pens for such exceptional customer service and quality products!!!

Best regards,

Hi Jim,

I have some good news and some bad news…

My wife loved my new pen and so being the loving husband that I am gifted it to her.

Bad news…I am out a pen.

So, I am interested in getting another Art Deco pen and going with the “Red & Silver Burl End Cap”.

Just tell me how to order it and I will do it as I would love to have it as soon as possible.

Thanks so much Jim.

Dear Jim...,

Well, the presentation dinner was a roaring success, mostly because of your beautiful pen. The lady, who we all love, was so overwhelmed she broke down in tears. It wasn't long, and we were all crying. It really was a very special experience. I wish you could have been there to take a bow.
But, I made sure they all knew who you were.

I can't thank you enough for all the extra effort you went through to get it out in time. The pen arrived on Friday, so there was plenty of time to get it together. We're only a few people, a very small company, but you made it a memorable evening for all of us.

Sincerely,
Ted

Dear Jim,

We received the pen last evening and it is beautiful. Definitely worth the wait. And thank you so much for including the gift box.

That was very nice of you. We took the pen and some of my peanut brittle in to my husband's surgeon this morning and he was very pleased. I appreciate all your help with the order.

Hi!

I just wanted to thank you - the Majestic Rollerball I received was some of the finest craftsmanship I have ever seen in a writing instrument.
Hardly ever does a product match its catalog picture, however the pen I received far surpassed the picture in you catalog.
I will most definitely be back for more and have shared your website with my business partner so he can buy his own rather than try to borrow mine.

Thank you!!

I am writing this on behalf of all LawyersTitle branches located in the Southern California area. I would like torecommend the services of Lanier Pens. We recently used Lanier Pens to createcustom, rosewood gift boxes that were engraved. Not only were they the bestprice around, but the quality of the engraving was impeccable and exceeded allof our expectations. Everyone from management to those that received a box werecompletely satisfied and overwhelmed at how beautiful they were. The attentionto detail in the engraving was tremendously valuable on this project.

The order that we placed was large inquantity and needed in a timely manner. The customer service was quick torespond and understand our objective and priority in this critical time. Theymade quality contributions to the configuration and design of our custom boxesso that we could receive them before our 'due date.'

Again, I would like to express my sincerestthanks for the success of this order, the quality of work, and the customer carewe received. I recommend Lanier Pens to all without reservation.

Thankyou so much for the pen and excellent service. I really like the look of thepen, the gunmetal plating and the cap which screws on to each end of thepen.No problems with the nib â€" I seemto get a good even ink flow.
Iwill be in touch this summer for another pen. I will be looking for somethingto use in the court room â€" preferably dark in color (maybe black?). If you haveany ideas I'd love to hear them.

Hi Jim,

I just wanted to say that I received my pens today and I am amazed at the craftsmanship that went into making them and also the quality of the cocobolo wood. Absolutely stunning, there are no words to describe the beauty of these pens as well as the others that are on your web site.

Thank you and I will definitely be ordering more pens from you in the near future. I also hope to see you again at the next event that you will be attending.

Joaquin A

We were pleased to send our special clients Lanier Pens. The craftsmanship was excellent and sent a message that we're a first class firm to those who received them. We've had several clients mention how much they've enjoyed their pen almost a year after they were delivered. That's the kind of memorable marketing that works!

Kim S

Every year for the last 15 years we have sent our clients a year end gift as a token of our appreciation. These gifts have varied from paper weights to letter openers to clocks. Last year for the first time we used Lanier Pens that put together a two pen set in a customized rosewood laser engraved box.

The gift was beautiful and frankly looked to be a gift of much more expense than what Lanier Pens charged us. The feedback we received on the pens was the best we have ever had in my 15 years. People just loved them and I believe it is a testament to the quality of craftsmen ship and the fact that while pens are ubiquitous the Lanier Pens are truly unique.

Jim Lanier and Lanier Pens have been an incredible resource for that little dash of pizzazz our clients love with their custom presentation kits. Pens are custom made to match our creative needs and are always of the highest quality.

Plus, the cost is always up front and within budget, and delivery is right on time. When the pens arrive, it's a bit like Christmas â€" each pen is unique in its striations and grain, and absolutely GORGEOUS to look at and write with!

From the small town of Montara just outside the charm of historic Half Moon Bay, California comes a premier company called Lanier Pens.

The innovative designs and quality craftsmanship have been a rewarding result for our Patent Law firm sharing it with our clients around the world.

"Each customer I presented a Lanier Pen to was very impressed with the quality of the writing instrument" "I ran out of Lanier Pens way to early and had to re-order pens to present to my customers for Xmas gifts"."The Laser engraved storage box was incredible"

"I plan on ordering Lanier Pens for many years into the future"

Dave C

I discovered Lanier Pens from the Firm I am employed with. Our Company purchases Lanier Pens for our seasonal gifts for clients and for employee awards, special anniversary or achievements. I personally purchased several different types but my favorite is the Koa comfort twist pen. I have had it for two years and find the more I use it the more these amazing colors come out. The metal on the pen has a gold finish and the color has never worn or tarnished and I use my pen several times a day.

I went to an office supply store to purchase the refills (you can also purchase from Lanier Pens) and the person who serviced the department indicated my pen had better "architecture" and "construction" that would last a lifetime and also my pen was much better quality than their "High End" products.

My brother holds a Legal position with the Government and proudly displays his on his desk and always looks forward to his next pen for the next Christmas. I have given people pens or a set as gifts that live from New York to Hawaii and every owner is extremely overwhelmed by not only the look but the construction and quality. Perfection is the requirement with Lanier Pens!

Sincerely,
Michele R.

I am very pleased with my new Classic Elite Rollerball Pen. The writing is extremely smooth and the Redwood lace Burl wood which I chose for my pen makes it more than just a fine writing instrument, it's a work of Art!

Thank you again for helping me to rediscover classic pens again.
