Giveaway: BigiDesign Ti Arto Refill Friendly Pen

BigiDesign tiArto

The folks at BigiDesign have kindly sent me a NEW  Ti Arto Refill Friendly Pen  ($85) to give away to one lucky reader. I reviewed and tested this pen awhile back and put it through its paces and I can tell you that if you have been looking for a sturdy, solid titanium pen that will accept a wide range of refills (over 200 different refills at last count!) that looks and feels good in your hand, this is the pen for you. You can have the convenience of your favorite gel, rollerball, felt tip or ballpoint refill without the plasticky look of the drugstore/big box pen.

If you love the Pilot G2 (or some other refill), you can buy the refills you prefer and use the durable, reusable Ti Arto Pen thereby reducing your amount of plastic waste, if even by a little bit.

So… I bet you’re waiting to find, “How do I enter to win the Ti Arto?”

TO ENTER: Tell me what your favorite pen refill is. Easy peasy, lemon squeezy.

FINE PRINT: All entries must be submitted by 10pm CST on Saturday, July 29, 2017. All entries must be submitted at, not Twitter, Tumblr or Facebook, okay? Winner will be announced on Sunday. Winner will be selected by random number generator from entries that played by the rules (see above). Please include your REAL email address in the comment form so that I can contact you if you win. I will not save email addresses or sell them to anyone — pinky swear. If winner does not respond within 10 days, I will draw a new giveaway winner. Shipping via USPS first class is covered. Additional shipping options or insurance will have to be paid by the winner. We are generous but we’re not made of money. US and APO only.

If you like the Ti Arto, you’ll love the new Ti Pocket Pro ($65) now available for pre-order on BigiDesign’s web site. It accepts over 80 different refills and adjusts in length depending on whether you fill it with a rollerball style refill or a Parker-style refill.  It starts shipping in late August.

  1. I guess it would be a blue Schmidt P8126, although a .7 blue Jetstream would be a close second.

  2. My favorite refill is the Pilot G2 Gel Pen Refill – 0.38 mm… love those fine points for writing on postcards and being able to write more than Miss you!

  3. The Uni-Ball Signo DX in black is just about perfect, but there are VERY few pens that can take it. The fact that the Ti Arto can is so exciting!

  4. I love the Pentel Slicci .25 but the barrel is very thin and light. Any chance that it will fit in the Arto?

  5. It may seem rather old fashioned but much of my day to day scribbling is done with a Parker Ball Point pen, fine point either black or blue ink.

  6. There are other refills that are a bit better, but the Pilot G2 .7 is my favorite overall.

  7. Pilot G2. Behaves well, smooth and precise and dirt cheap considering how long it lasts.

  8. My favorite refill is the Slicci BG503 0.3 because I love the ultra fine lines for my writing or printing and design making…

  9. These days I’m quite partial to the Zebra Sarasa vintage 0.5mm colors. The brown-gray rocks!
