About Us

Pen Specialists Since 1993

Browse our carefully curated selection of some of the world's finest pens. We hope that you will also drop in and see us, as there's nothing like a hands-on experience! If you can't stop in, please give us a call! We are renown for our friendly, knowledgeable service in person and over the phone.

We stock one of the largest selections of fine writing instruments in the country, and are the midwest's premiere seller of fine writing instruments, plus leather goods, and gifts. We are located in the heart of downtown Cincinnati, on the 2nd floor of the historic Carew Tower.

Why 411pens? Well, 411 is the telephone number people used to call for information. Our knowledge of all things pen related is what has kept people coming to us since 1993. Our customers frequently call or come in to check with us before they follow the advice of some self-described pen experts online. We don't claim to know everything, but we've seen a LOT of bad advice online and we want to do what we can to help you have the best experience possible.


We sell over 3 dozen lines of fine pens including Aurora, Cross, Diplomat, Faber-Castell, Kaweco, Lamy, Montegrappa, Pineider, Pelikan, Pilot/Namiki, S.T.Dupont, Sailor, Sheaffer, Wahl-Eversharp, and Yard-o-Led.


In addition, we also carry a selection of fine leather goods, bags and accessories from such brands as Bellroy, Bosca, Capitol, Scully, Trafalgar, Tusting, and XD Design.


Our selection of gifts is unique and specially selected to suit all occasions, including business gifts and groomsmen gifts: vintage pieces from Cincinnati's historic Rookwood Pottery, stationery, clocks, money clips, cufflinks, globes, and men's shaving and grooming accessories.


At Appointments we strive to stock only quality, long-lasting products designed to provide many years of service and enjoyment. Stop in to browse Appointments, Cincinnati's one-of-a-kind store where playing is encouraged, no matter your age.
