~I received an ACME Studio pen for the purpose of reviewing. Opinions and stories are my own.~
There is just something to be said about having a really nice pen to use. While most everything I do is online or on my phone when I do write out a note, list or address a card it is so much nicer to have a dependable pen that I enjoy using. ACME Studio sells pens that are not only great for writing but they are works of art.
I am tired of having a cup of pens on my desk and when I go to use one it doesn’t work. After using this pen for a week straight I immediately threw away all my cheap-o pens that I have gotten from a hotel or a freebie from an event.
This is the Roses Standard Roller Ball Pen, a design by Charles Rennie Mackintosh and it comes with one black roller ball refill. The artist’s signature is engraved on the cap band and the word ACME is on the clip. The pen is presented in an ACME metal box with a black sleeve and ACME literature.
It is hands down the nicest writing implement that I have ever used. The ink rolls with each stroke of the pen leaving behind a flawless ink line.

Their high quality products go beyond pens as they also carry card cases, watches, wallets, card organizers, key rings, cufflinks, money clips, compact mirrors and more.

It has the only pen on the market that can change from a roller ball to a ballpoint, a felt tip or even a fountain pen by changing out the tips. There are also four alternate front sections available, including a capacitive tip for smart phones and tablets making this truly remarkable pen multifunctional with so many possibilities.
