I have a cheap advertisment pen that I got from my tax guy. I love it becuase it has a great triangular grip that helps reduce pain when writing. Can anyone post a link to a reliable website to where I can buy more refills? I will post a picture of the pen and the refill. Thank you!

Is there still a National Pen Co. ?  It made such advertising pens.  I would take the refill into Staple's or 

Office Depot and match it to one on the shelf.  The important length match is from "ears" to the point. 

Any excess "shaft" can be trimmed. 

 

Good hunting.

+1 on Sasha's recommendation.  With this caveat:

I tried going that route with a click BP that had my friend's business information on it -- it was a freebie when I bought some stuff from her, most notably a set of cotton cards (for processing cotton fiber, prior to spinning -- they have finer and more teeth than standard wool cards).  I liked it because the barrel on the pen was purple, and because I like supporting my friends' businesses when possible.

The package of refills I got from Staples was blue ink (the original filler was black, but I tend to dislike black ink, and switching over to FPs hasn't really changed that).  Staples used to carry ones that were pretty good, but the last time they had gone over to ones that were under their own name and those refills were AWFUL -- they leaked before I got the blister pack open!  Needless to say, they went right back to Staples for a refund....

You might find that Papermate refills will fit that pen.  I have a promo pen that I put a Pm Lubriglide refill into, and it writes fantastic (for a ballpoint).

Thanks for all the help! I have since stopped using this ballpoint and used other ballpoints and Fountain Pens. The Dr. Grip is a Ballpoint Pen that has same level of comfort as the cheap throw away. It has refills I can find easily. Thanks again. By

My wife has a similar pen that she loves and I needed to find refills for it. The Skilcraft US Government refills fit perfectly.
