In order to preserve your Cartier writing instrument for as long as possible, we recommend the following guidelines on a daily basis.
- Ensure that you close the cap of your ballpoint pens and fountain pens so as to prevent the ink from drying.
- Ensure your fountain pen is used regularly. If your pen is only used occasionally and the ink has dried out, flush the nib with lukewarm water.
- Do not expose your Cartier writing instrument to a source of heat.
- When traveling on airplanes, we recommend that you charge your fountain pen with a new ink cartridge or a full converter, and that you carry the pen with the nib facing upward so as to avoid any ink leakages.
