Cross Pens are regarded as America’s oldest manufacturer of writing instruments (since 1846) and the pioneer of the mechanical pencil. They are coveted for their aerodynamic lines and signature gleaming chrome finish, inspired by Art Deco and Manhattan architecture. Their medalist finish combines chrome with gold accents, typifying their sharp, business-like feel. Many of the Cross designs have remained unchanged for decades, such as the Classic Century and Townsend (the pen of US presidents).
The Classic Century is the archetypal Cross pen. Its slimline silhouette, aerodynamic lines and smart lined detailing highlight the brands strong affiliation with Art Deco. Available in all writing types, the Classic Century is also available in premium finishes such as 10 or 14 Karat gold and sterling silver. The ballpoint pen comes with black ink and takes a standard Cross refill, whilst the pencil fits a 0.7mm lead. Presented in a gift box.
We think the Cross Bailey offers great value, featuring the detail you would typically associate with more expensive pens such as the engraved centre band. The medalist finish, with its gleaming chrome and gold accents lifts this pen to status symbol at a fraction of the usual cost. The fountain pen comes with a medium stainless steel nib, and we have put together various sets for your convenience, including those with pen cases. Presented in a Cross gift box.
The Cross Edge benefits from the free flowing ink of a rollerball, but dispenses with the need for a cap. It also features a unique and satisfying pull mechanism to retract the writing tip, which converts the pen from pocket to full size. Made from metallic fusion resin, the Edge is available in a wide selection of colours, of which the bestsellers are; black, pink, purple. Compatible with a Cross selectip gel rollerball refill.
The Cross Century II has a similar design to the classic, with aerodynamic curves and smart lined detailing, but has been adapted with with more prominent contours and a chunkier barrel. Available in all writing types and sets, the fountain pen is decorated with an elegant Art Deco motif made from either stainless steel or 18k gold (with premium finishes). The Century II is available in all the classic finishes; lustrous chrome, medalist, matt black, as well as 10 karat filled/rolled gold and sterling silver.
The Cross Townsend features the aerodynamic lines typical of the brand’s art deco heritage, with a more weighty feel and subtle detailing (such as the double centre band) than the Century range. Known as the pen of choice for American presidents, Barack Obama uses a black chrome trim rollerball. Available as fountain pen, rollerball and ballpoint, the Townsend has all the usual shiny chrome finishes as well as a beautiful quartz blue and a luxurious 10 karat gold.
The smart, businesslike FranklinCovey Lexington is both a quality writing instrument and an eye-catching corporate gift. Features a large engravable area, and offers the looks of a premium pen at an affordable price.
The ATX by Cross is defined by its long sweeping curves, influenced by the early car design of the 1930s. The comfortable mid sized barrel also makes it a pleasure to hold.

The ATX has a limited range of finishes in black and chrome, with matt and shiny options. Presented in a Cross gift box.
