Question: What can be engraved on the pens and boxes?
Answer: Names, initials, or inscriptions are popular requests for engraving. Typically copied logos from the internet do not provide a good quality for engraving so please be sure to send a high resolution file such as an eps. Company logos may require authorization. Sorry, college and pro sports teams are off limits.
Question: Can the pens be refilled?
Answer: Yes. The standard pens can be replaced with a Schmidt or Monteverde style rollerball refills. They can be found on line or at Office Depot.
