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.
2) We carry the complete Fisher line, plus we offer Free USA and APO shipping when we can. (You can’t order a bullet pocket clip 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, and custom pen cases. 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. 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.
2) Our pricing is correct. We do not misquote MSRP or discounts. Many Manufacturers have minimum pricing policies. 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 halfway around the world. We have a large inventory, and we package and mail everyday (five days a week)
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 party's 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 sell pens and pen accessories and Handmade Items. We don’t sell sporting goods, lighters, tanning lotions, DVDs, or electronics as our competitors do in addition to the Fisher line. We believe Fisher Space Pen and Retro 51 are two of the best and most innovative pen lines available. We also sell one of a kind Handmade Pens by Katie Manrique and Placid Crafts. 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.
Feedback: Our system is setup to give positive feedback when an item is paid for, so if you have paid you have received positive feedback from us already. Now we are asking for the same. When you receive your order we hope we have successfully fulfilled our side of the transaction, if not please let us know and remember we have a money back guarantee if you are not satisfied. We work hard to earn customer satisfaction and that positive feedback. If we make a mistake in the order we will make it right. Please read about the Detailed Seller Ratings (DSR) changes listed below.
Please leave all five star ratings for us when you leave feedback. The higher our DSR score the better our fee discount and that means the more savings we can pass on to our customers. If for any reason you feel that you cannot leave all five stars please let us know and we will do our best to correct the issue.
It takes very few four star ratings to drop you from the eBay incentive programs, and all four star rates a business will lose seller privileges. This is a very high standard and requires attention to details and great customer service. We feel we are that type of seller.
Item as Described ... We add as many details about the item as we can. We offer more information that anyone, anywhere.
Communication ... We answer every email as clearly, quickly, and as accurately as we can.
Shipping time ... Check the post date to see that we mailed on time. Any delays are usually due to postal issues for peak times or customs hold ups on International mail. Generally we ship five days a week except for holidays. Engraving may add two days.
Shipping and handling charges ... There is more to the price of shipping than just postage. However we try our best to keep the cost as low as possible and the shipping weight does dictate the cost.
Fisher Space Pen 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 upside 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 upside 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 pen. 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 Infinium Series Pens that is warranted to never run out of Ink for a lifetime at about $150.00. 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 Parker Style ballpoint pens. Fisher also makes pressurized refills to fit Cross style pens. See the complete Fisher line by visiting our eBay store. Just clicking on the store link, then select the category you would like to see from the list on the right hand side of the page.
