A Mini Pen for your Big Ideas 💡

As you may know, I designed the Lumos as an answer to disposable pens. One of the biggest culprits is the humble biro, of which the unfathomable number of 100 Billion now reside in landfill!

In a Nutshell:

• Compatible with all 11 tips.
• Comes with my favourite 0.3 writing tip which is amazing for drawing too!
• A dinky 95mm long which also saves on any extra material & resource to make a full size pen.
• Designed to last a lifetime.
• Comes in beautiful gift worthy packaging.

Measuring 95mm uncapped & 83mm capped, this little pen not only serves as the perfect pocket friendly package, but also cuts down on any extra material to make a full length pen, taking even fewer resources to produce.
    Each pen features a reservoir that holds up to 2.5ml of ink, ensuring that it lasts for an extended period before needing a refill. When the time comes, refilling is a breeze. You can top it up with any fountain pen ink color you like, including waterproof pigment ink. The choice is yours, and you can unleash your creativity without limitations.

    As standard all Lumos Minis comes with a 0.3 durable and smooth writing tip (shown on the sage green pen), which once you try it, you won't be able to put it down. It's perfect for writing as well as illustration and adds extra touch of joy to your creative process.


      The mini Lumos pen is compatible with 11 professional interchangeable tips, crafted by specialists in Japan. These tips include fineliners, 0.1, 0.2, 0.3, 0.5, 0.8, and 1.0, as well as 2mm chisel, bullet, and brush felt-tips. Whether you're working on intricate details or bold strokes, there's a tip to suit every artistic need.

        What ink can I use?

        - All nibs will work with all but the most experimental fountain pen inks (think shimmer + iridescent). I've tried a LOT and I'm yet to find one that doesn't work well. I'd encourage you to experiment and find the inks that work best for you!

        Pigment Ink for fountain pens can be found here.

        Calligraphy Ink has an acrylic binder which will block the Pen

        What are the differences between the Duo and the Single Lumos?

        The Duo Lumos allows you to have two different pens in one body, allowing you to easily change between nibs and ink colours on either side.

        The Single Lumos has one tip and one ink reservoir which is double the Duo's reservoir size.

        What's the difference between the Lumos and other refillable technical pens? (E.g. Rotring Isograph and Copic Multiliner).

        Problem

        I was able to fill the reservoir the first time. Since then, I haven’t been able to remove the reservoir from the pen again. That means I’ll never be able to refill the pen and therefore the pen will not be useable. I looked on the web site but could not find any help there. (Not specifically related, but I also couldn’t see any explanation for ordering extra ink reservoirs. If I could get the original reservoir out to refill, should I expect it would have to be replaced after a while? But as I said, that isn’t likely to happen, since I can’t get the original reservoir out anymore.)

        Nice to hold and use.

        Got given this as a present from Lorraine. Looks good, lovely finish, oodles of cuteness. Some teething problems:
        Nib holder jammed when trying to screw it in - had to get pliers to it.
        No idea how long one 'fill' of ink lasts, so have to carry another pen in case this runs out
        Ink doesn't flow immediately if I don't use the pen for a couple of days - have to scribble for a few minutes.

        Hi Lorraine,

        Thank you so much for your feedback , we are always very happy to help and troubleshoot any problems you might have. I'm sorry to hear that your tip holder got stuck - usually this is because it's become cross threaded. I hope you managed to get it unstuck again?

        It depends on how much you write and what you are using it for, but one fill of ink will typically last a pretty long time, similar to a regular pen, so you shouldn't need to carry a spare pen.

        Can I also ask which tip & ink you are using when you say that the ink doesn't flow immediately?

        If you prefer you can email gemma@tomsstudio.co.uk and I will be very happy to help.

        Warm wishes
        Gemma

        This is a gift for the friend who got me my lavender mini. I have now been falling down the rabbit hole buying the large lavender and the brass uno (duo was not available). I’ve bought one pen case and am pending the next. I’ve also bought many tips and am waiting for the grip to return. It goes on and on and I love everything and I know my friend will love hers and will join me in this rabbit hole!

        Meanwhile, lavender, blush, and brass are gorgeous, as is the sage (I bought two extra caps for aesthetic reasons).

        I am a freelance writer and the ink lasts forever.

        PS, Customer service is fantastic, as well.

        Brilliant little tool

        I've always enjoyed working with ink in my art practice but fine liners seem like a waste and dip pens are messy as a sculptor I do like to define my drawings well as well as using charcoal for weight and volume. I loved the look of the Lumos mini in ivy and thought I'd try it, I also ordered a pack of creative nibs and ink reservoirs as I do like to use multiple colours, I was not disappointed not only is the pen well balanced and beautiful but is elegantly simple to set up and use 👍 I would recommend Tom's pens to anyone and everyone.
