The Pen and Paper was founded in 1996 and is owned and run by Philip and Wendy Bottrill. Our shop is based in the Royal Arcade which is part of a series of Edwardian and Victorian indoor arcades known as the Morgan Quarter in Cardiff. It is from this location that we operate both our internet sales and pens, stationery and art supplies shop.
