Grateful Giveaways #5: Faber-Castell Pens

by Tara Kuczykowski on April 11, 2011 · 809 comments

What does it say about a company that has been in business since 1761? That's right, 250 years ago Faber-Castell was founded in Germany as a pencil manufacturer. Today, Faber-Castell is a world renowned for its art supplies and fine writing instruments. Faber-Castell stands behind the quality of their work by guaranteeing the mechanics of your writing instrument for life.

Whether the graduate in your life will be continuing their education or entering the workforce, Faber-Castell makes a a writing implement to fit every style making the perfect gift. Check out all the design choices at

If you followed me during the Back to School season last fall, you know that we can pick up scores of ink pens and spend next to nothing out of pocket. But they just don't compare to the feel of writing with a really nice pen like those produced by Faber-Castell. Writing with a high-end pen is a totally different sensory experience because they just seem to fit your hand better with the slight bit of added weight, and the ink flows smoothly every time. I'm totally inspired to write more handwritten notes now!

Of course I don't discount the fact that refillable pens are better for the environment as well. There's less packaging and waste overall, and a fine writing implement can last indefinitely.

One lucky Deal Seeking Mom reader will win 2 Faber-Castell pens with a value of more than $100!!

I like any pen that has a fine point and fits right in my hand. Also, it should be very smooth when writing
