Modern metallic

Eye broad

You can’t go wrong with a metallic stationery for a sleek, stylish look. We co-ordinated our beautiful rose-gold barrelled Eye Broad pens with a sparkly gold journal. This looks great with gold-coloured scissors and hole punch with handy clips and funky stationery themed gold-plated paper clips.

The Eye Broad has a strong 1.0mm rollerball for expressive, broad handwriting. Great for when you need clear, easy-to-read script. 

One of the world’s favourite rollerballs for more than 20 years, the Eye contains water resistant pigment ink – uni Super Ink– which is fade free, water resistant and tamper-proof. So it’s excellent for work documents, essay writing, course work and home use.  

Encased in a sleek rose-gold barrel, the Eye Broad is both stylish and super reliable. The unique ‘uni-flow’ system ensures a consistent and continuous ink flow right to the last drop so you don’t have to worry about the pen jamming or ink running out. Plus the barrel’s handy ink window lets you know in good time when it’s time to replace your pen.

Bright, bold and colourful

Don’t be shy when it come to your stationery stash. If you’re a flamboyant person who needs to write in black ink you can still embrace your colourful side with your choice of pens and accessories. Coloured sticky notes are way of organising and compartmentalising information and notes, so use different colours for separate areas of attention. You can be expressive and organised at the same time!

Air Micro coloured barrel

The Air Micro coloured barrel combine cool looking, professional handwriting with colourful design.

Our vibrant Air Micro coloured barrel pens cover both bases. They write with a smooth, flowing fountain-style black line with a bright and fresh pen design. You can choose from four pen barrel colour variations to suit your style.

The Air gives you a fine fountain-style flow without the fiddle and faff of changing cartridges and worrying about leaks. It’s great for when you need the finesse of a fine ink script but the reliability of a rollerball. It writes like a dream; just pick up an Air and let the words come as the pen tip moves freely across the page.

The pen may be colourful but it writes in solid black; great for a budding calligrapher. To practice a fancy script, simply apply with a light touch for a finer line and give it a firmer pressure for a bolder edge.  Want these words to last? No problem, the Air contains uni-ball’s famous Super Ink which is fade-free, water resistant and tamper proof.

Marvellous mono stationery

Eye Micro set

If your desk top style is more refined than exuberant, you can always go mono with black, white and grey stationery buys.

We love this simple but stylish look above. We’ve put together a fab set of mono-themed stationery here, teaming a sleek faux leather white pencil case, Swanky Gecko art journal, black and white washi tape with black Eye Micro pens. We also designed a simple personalised wooden pebble paper weight updated with a POSCA brush tip.

The Swanky Gecko sketch journals have tactile, soft touch flexible case bound covers  that are durable and wipe clean to stay looking swanky and fresh.  The sketch journal has page markers that are also sewn in sections of the book to give it a high quality look and feel.

If you’re the household’s organiser in chief, you want to go for a safe bet when picking pens for the family.  Super reliable and excellent quality, the uni-ball Eye Micro rollerball pen has been a world favourite for more than 20 years. That’s because it does its job, and delivers smooth flowing, rich ink to the page with a consistent skip-free line.

The Eye Micro pens contains uni Super Ink which is fade-free, water resistant and tamper proof making the pen ideal for all manner of uses from lists making and household notes to important documents, school work and cards to keep and treasure.  Its Micro 0.5mm nib is excellent for neat, clear handwriting, so it’s a great pen for a neat, precise script; perfect for little notes and tags. 

Kuro pencil

If you love the look of beautiful shades of grey and need a drawing and writing tool, grab yourself a Kuru Toga retractable pencil. This pencil comes in a range of coloured barrels but for this look you can opt for gorgeous smokey grey encasing to match the subtle charcoal coloured hues of this mechanical pencil.

If there an artist or graphic designer in the house the a uni-ball Kuru Toga mechanical pencil is ideal. It is an excellent tool for precision drawing. It uses revolutionary technology to maintains its shape as you work with it, ensuring a consistent result every time.

So how does it work? The Kuru Toga’s unique gear mechanism rotates the lead each time it comes into contact with the paper, so the tip remains cone-shaped and able to deliver fine, precise lines. This also ensures it’s far more resistant to breaking meaning you’re not for-ever changing the lead.

It looks good too. The translucent upper barrel is sleek and modern, and you can see the Kuru Toga’s 3-gear rotation system at work through the ridged grip section. If that wasn’t proof enough of the mechanism, you’re able to see the logo on the centre gear rotate each time the tip touches your writing surface – around nine degrees each time. Forty touches will result in one complete rotation of the lead.
