About TheWellAppointedDesk

On Etsy since 2006

Making the world more beautiful, one desk at a time.

We, as modern workers, spend an inordinate amount of time sitting at a desk. Shouldn’t it be a place that inspires us?

The Well-Appointed Desk started ten years ago as a blog reviewing pens, paper and ink. Over time, we realized that we could also contribute to the pen community by creating our own products. Our first was the Col-o-ring, the ink testing book designed to be the perfect way to store and catalog our ink collections.

Over the years, we've expanded our product line to include the Col-o-dex , the Col-o-ring Dippers and the Col-o-ring OVERSIZE. We also create rubber stamps to use with your Col-o-ring products or in your journals or planners.

We plan to continue to expand our range of fountain pen-friendly paper for letter writing as well as paper gifts and other goods for fountain pen fans.
