Welcome to the Home page of Pens of Distinction
We are a small business based in Glenrothes in Fife, Scotland and have been in
business since 2001.
Originally started in a home workshop making wooden-barrelled pens and supplied
in wooden boxes, we are now in our second business workshop of about 900
Originally I started making wooden-barrelled pens and supplying them in wooden boxes.
I used to send my pens and boxes away to be laser engraved but 4 years ago I purchased
a laser to engrave them myself. This gave me a lot of benefits, chiefly, a faster turnaround
for customer’s orders and also the ability to experiment with new products with laser
engraving on them.
We now offer beech rim coasters, slate coasters, wooden fridge magnets, keyrings,
nameplates for bedroom doors, ‘cludgie’ and ‘oor cludgie’ signs for bathroom doors
We cut all our own logs with a chainsaw mill to make into planks of timber and then
dry them in a kiln to ensure they are down to a suitable moisture content for making into
bespoke furniture for all sorts of customers. Some of these planks are crafted into log slice
mirrors, which are totally unique, in size colour and shape and make ideal presents for the
person or couple who have everything, or for a wedding present that is a little bit different.
We are continually developing new products and are happy to work with both private
individuals, charities or the corporate sector to bring ideas to life. I am a qualified designer
and maker of furniture and am happy making a one-off as I am making 1000 off.
