Monteverde refills Mont Blanc’s vacuum
April 30, 2011 § Leave a comment
Mont Blanc, in their re-seller selection process, has created a vacuum for customers wishing to refill their pens. Unless you happen to pass one of their authorised outlets you cannot generally get your exclusively priced pens refilled. This has resulted in a number of disenfranchised MB owners. We do not complain about this scenario in the PenFountain.com retail business in Cranleigh because it has enabled us to sell alternative but often comparably priced complete pens.
US based pen brand, Monteverde, has offered a range of Mont Blanc compatible refills for a number of years and now, at PenFountain.com, we have been able to source these refills ‘re-enfranchising’ the rightly disgruntled Mont Blanc owners.
The products offered are of a high quality and, in our opinion, may even offer an innovative advantage in that the Monteverde ballpoint refills use their trade marked Soft Roll technology. The unique writing point design allows smoother contact with the paper than conventional ballpoint pens giving a writing experience more akin to that of a rollerball but with ballpoint drying times. In addition, the ballpoint refills are available 7 different colours but at about ½ the price of the original products! Monteverde also offers a Ceramic Gel alternative to the ballpoint refills and Mont Blanc compatible rollerball refills.
