5820 Pen Refills Guide

1. About 5280 Pens

5280 Pens is the brand name of a range of pens designed and sold by the Colorado Pen Company. The 5280 name originates from The Paradise Pen Company, whose headquarters were in Denver, Colorado, before they ceased trading in 2017, Which is 5280 feet above sea level and where the idea for the pens originated.

2. 5280 Ballpoint Pen Refills

5280 doesn’t make ballpoint refills and uses the Schmidt P900 M refill in their ballpoint pens or the Schmidt Easyflow 9000 M.

Both are Parker Style Refills; they are available in fine, medium, and broad tips with a choice of ink colors.

The main difference between the refills is that the Schmidt Easyflow 9000 has hybrid ink, making it smoother to write with than the Schmidt P900 M, which has an oil-based ballpoint ink.
