  • HB Pencil - For those starting to write the HB pencil is an extremely dependable and a great way to start.
  • Handwriting Pen - The ever popular Handwriting pen has been designed and developed over many years. The nib has a slight resistance to paper giving more controlled letter formation which eliminates the skidding associated with ball pens.
  • NEW Cartridge Pen - 2011 see’s the launch of the new improved Berol Cartridge Pen. The pen boasts a modern design along with a more robust nib designed to withstand the riguours of daily use whilst offering effortless, smooth writing. The shaped barrel has a new rubberised comfort grip which prevents callus on the third finger and stops fingers slipping onto the nib.
