What Sets Us Apart From Our Competition


We think there are 5 things we do and 5 things we do not do

 & this is what sets us apart from our competition.

None of our competitors live up to this list.


5 Things we do: 


1) We have a money back guarantee, a return policy, and Great customer service. Fisher Pens also have a lifetime guarantee. Anyone can sell a pen; customer service goes on after the sale. Questions or Concerns our USA Toll Free Customer Service Number is: 1-877-304-Pens(7367) or Outside the USA call us at  +1*319-899-6340. 


2) We carry the complete Fisher line, all the pens, all the accessories, and all of the refills at the Minimum Allowable Advertised Prices. Plus we offer Free USA and APO Shipping when we can. (You can’t order a bullet pocket clip for $1.70 and expect free shipping) Many brands have minimal pricing standards set by the manufacturer and we sell it the minimal price. You just can't buy them cheaper from an authorized dealer.  


3) Our store listings feature our own photos; nothing is cut and copied from anyone else’s listings and stock photography is used very sparingly.  We put all the information we can in our listings to make it as clear as possible what we are offering and refill compatibility for every pen we offer. After all what good is a pen without the right refill. 


4) We offer engraving on all of the pens that are engravable with our laser system. And we do all our engraving ourselves so there is no waiting on third parties to get to it. Laser engraving gives superior crispness and clarity. A personalized pen turns a gift into a keepsake. 


5) We have been selling on eBay since July of 2004. We have earned our shooting star, and if you look at our total feedback you will see we have many loyal return customers. We have seen many sellers come and go and we are still here and expanding. We reinvest in our business not only by adding quality pen lines, but premium services like Laser Engraving, Ink color and point preference change outs, custom pen cases and our toll free service number. We listen to our customers and are a company you can count on year after year. 



5 Things we do not do: 


1) We do not hide who we are. We are Cyber Space Pens, Owned by Larry & Katherine Grizzell and we are based in Marion, Iowa. Many sellers cannot be contacted directly and we feel that there can be no buyer confidence in a seller that is only known as an eBay handle. We feel that if everyone had to put their names on their listings it would change how they do business. We are accessible, call Katherine at our USA Toll Free Number: 1-877-304-Pens (7367) or Outside the USA call us at  +1*319-899-6340 or contact us by our eBay e-mail. 


2) Our pricing is correct. We do not misquote MSRP or discounts. Fisher has implemented their new pricing policy known as MAP (Minimum Advertised Pricing) Policy effective starting 12/01/08. Anyone advertising below the 15% allowable price off of the MSRP (Manufactures Suggested Retail Price) will lose their dealer privileges. We comply with all the rules and believe in truthful listings, if we misquote anything please let us know. 


3) We sell only what we have in stock and do not have our pens drop shipped from a wholesale house or mailed from some clearing house half way around the world. We have a large inventory, and we package and mail everyday (five days a week) right here in Marion, Iowa. 


4) No third party checkout. No having your name put on a consumer list and sold. Your credit Card number or Paypal account number is not stored in our system or a third parties system. As a consumer we hate going through several other screens and giving out our personal information to third party checkouts and you never know who has access to your financial information, if your purchase will be mailed from a drop shipper, or if your address or email address are be sold onto spam list.  


5) We don’t sell sporting goods, lighters, art supplies, DVDs, or electronics as our competitors do in addition to the Fisher line. We believe in Fisher Space Pens and their quality. We sell pens and pen accessories. We are Authorized Dealers of Acme Pens, Jac Zagoory Pewter Pen Holders, Retro 51 Pens, Hand Made Pens by Katie Manrique, and Customizable Pen Cases. We stand behind our sales with a money back guarantee, If you are not happy just send it back for a full refund of the purchase price.

    About Fisher Space Pens

    Fisher Space Pens LogoFisher Space Pens is yet another great breakthrough from space research. No other pen has so much to offer. This pen was designed in 1965 by Paul C. Fisher, for NASA, and with no cost to NASA or our government. Ordinary pens rely on gravity to write. Hold them up-side down and they quit. There was a need for a pen that would work in the zero gravity vacuum of space, and in extreme conditions. Paul Fisher developed such a pen. For the ink cartridge to write at any angle the cartridge was charged with 35 PSI of nitrogen. A small ball type float was used to separate the gas charge from the ink and it had to be hermetically sealed to hold the charge. With that type of pressure a precision fit stainless steel machined socket with a tungsten carbide ball and a specially formulated thixotropic ink was used keep the pen sealed and leak free. Fisher Space Pens have been used on EVERY Space Shuttle mission, both USA and Russian. They were also featured on a Seinfeld episode. ..... Imitated but never duplicated..... Because it is hermetically sealed it will not dry out like other pens and has a shelf life of over a hundred years. It does not rely on Gravity, It writes up side down, in the vacuum of space, on wet paper, underwater, in the freezing cold of -30° F, and the boiling heat of 250° F. Fisher Ink cartridges stay leak free and writing longer, cleaner, and more consistently than any other ink cartridges. Fishers are not only utilized by Astronauts but the Thunderbirds, the Blue Angels, the Navy Seals, and the Canadian Snowbirds also use the Fisher pens. Fishers are favorites among Firefighters, Paramedics, and Police Officers. We have even sold them to Tow Truck operators is Alaska that needed a pen to write in sub zero conditions. If you count on a pen to work, you need a pen with a Fisher ink cartridge. The Fisher Bullet Pen was exhibited at the New York Museum of Modern Art. It has been featured on the Tonight Show, Good morning America, John Ratzenberger's Made in America, and an episode of Seinfeld. Still proudly made here in the USA and I can tell you first hand Fisher Space Pen Company is made up of great people. Fisher has a wide variety of pens to fit almost anyone’s wants and needs in a variety of price ranges. Pens from the economy line that are gas pressurized, Plastic barrels, and not refillable at about $5.00 to the Millennium II and Mars Pens that is warranted to never run out of Ink for a lifetime at about $120.00. Of course, there are many series in between so you are sure to find the Pen that fits your needs and style. All of this brings me ask the question, “Sure you could buy another pen, but why would you?” Fisher refills come with an adapter to fit them to Parker and Sensa pens. Fisher also makes pressurized refills to fit Cross Pens. See the complete Fisher line by visiting our eBay store. Just clicking on the red store tag link, then select the category you would like to see from the list on the right hand side of the page.
