Smoothness is defined by something called the “coefficient of friction” which is ratio between the force necessary to move one surface horizontally over another surface and the pressure between the two surfaces. ZEBRA’s Emulsion Ink Technology has the lowest (best) friction measurement of anything currently on the market, which can be found in our Z-Mulsion line of products and are available in a wide variety of colours and point sizes.
In general, the majority of our inks will function as intended in cold temperatures not lower than -5 degrees Celsius, but may vary based on conditions. Conditions such as air humidity, how long your pen has been expose to the elements, as well as the particular writing surface. Since Zebra cannot duplicate every possible condition, we would always recommend that you test for performance for your particular situation. We always guarantee our products, so if they fail to perform properly, they can return it to Zebra Pen Canada Corp. for replacement.
We do not use plastics containing BPA in any of our products.
Yes, all ZEBRA products are latex free.
We know you love your writing instrument and don’t want to give it up once the ink runs out! For this reason, we offer refills for many ZEBRA Pens to allow you to hold onto your beloved writing tool. Use the search bar at the top right of any page on ZebraPen.ca to find your pen on our website and the site will provide a link to the refill, if applicable.
Unfortunately we do not carry green refills, but we do carry red refills for select pens. Please call Customer Service at (800) 511-4040 if you are unable to locate the appropriate red refill.
Holding the grip in your hand, twist the barrel counter clockwise to unscrew and open the pen.

The pop indicates that the seal has been broken and it’s locked firmly in place. Twist the barrel and grip back together and you can resume enjoying your V-301 fountain pen!
Our StylusPens come in 4 different styles and each style has a different method to replacing the ink cartridge:
