Excel University of Cambridge

With a more compact and stylish design than the classic Magna, the Excel University of Cambridge Pen is designed to include the University of Cambridge crest on the top of the cap.

Alumni also have the option to have the crest of their college inserted into the end of the barrel, and their name, initials and/or year of graduation engraved on the barrel, connecting an extremely valuable memory of their time in Cambridge.

10% of the net sale price goes to the University of Cambridge for every pen sold through this website.
