by Nicole on April 11, 2011

What does it say about a company that has been in business since 1761? That’s right, 250 years ago Faber-Castell was founded in Germany as a pencil manufacturer. Today, Faber-Castell is a world renowned for its art supplies and fine writing instruments. Faber-Castell stands behind the quality of their work by guaranteeing the mechanics of your writing instrument for life.

Whether the graduate in your life will be continuing their education or entering the workforce, Faber-Castell makes a a writing implement to fit every style making the perfect gift. Check out all the design choices at

I received 2 awesome pens to review from Faber-Castell.  Nice pens like these are perfect for any grad – whether they are starting college or entering the “real” world.  I received the Ambition pen in pink which I love – because it’s pink and also because it writes so easily and nicely.  I also received the Loom in white which is very modern and nice.  These pens are classy and upscale but also modern and functional – what a great combo for the ultimate gift.

One lucky reader will win 2 Faber-Castell pens with a value of more than $100!!

Gel pens with grips – they are very smooth and the grips make them easy to hold
