For the Love of Writing

If you love writing like I do you appreciate a high quality ink cartridge and its impact on what you put down on paper. Like me, you probably also know the Cross brand of writing instruments – one of the worlds leading manufacturers of fine writing instruments.

Cross Refills - Available at SmartpenCross Refills Available for Livescribe 3 smartpens

With that in mind I’m pleased to announce today that we’ve added a new ink refill option for the Livescribe 3 smartpen range – Cross refills in black and blue (medium).

You can find the options here:

One of our loyal customers tipped me off about this option and I’ve been personally using a blue medium refill for some weeks now and I’ve found its an excellent upgrade from the standard tungsten-carbide refills supplied with the Livescribe 3

If you’re looking for an even better writing experience from your Livescribe 3 smartpen – give these refills a try!
