This unique Skinny Mini Wallet Pen/Stylus is so tiny, you could almost forget it's even in your wallet. However, it's also so practical that you'll find yourself using it almost daily. It fits perfectly into the center fold of any wallet, giving you an effective writing instrument and smartphone stylus in one convenient, compact package. Even though it's tiny when stored, you can use the telescoping feature to extend it to your desired length. The stylus tip easily glides along the surface of any tablet or smartphone. Or, just unscrew the stylus cap to reveal an ink wallet pen for quick signatures or note taking. It's quick, easy and, best of all, totally modern.

When you go to order the Skinny Mini Wallet Pen, you'll have a few different colors to choose from. These pens are so affordable that you can grab a mini for every wallet you own and indulge in a little color matching. Who says a pen can't be stylish too?

In our Skinny Mini Wallet Pen kit you'll get the extendable mini pen and a canister containing two extra ink cartridges for refilling the pen. We know you'll be using this pen a lot throughout the day, so that's why we've included the extra ink in the main kit. Whenever you find yourself running low, grab one of our Replenishment Kits for the Skinny Mini Pen. The Replenishment Kit comes with five, yes FIVE, ink refills in medium point black ink. This kit also comes with a replacement stylus nub in black.

With the combination of a mini pen and stylus, this convenient tool will quickly become one of your essentials to keep on hand at all times. Use it with any of our Mini Skinny, Super Skinny or Skinny Flat wallets for convenient access. Just pop this little tool out any time you need a pen or stylus on the go.

Mini pens ordered removed by Big Skinny. Maybe out of stock?
June 10, 2017
Never received any communication, just a refund. I am assuming the mini pens were out of stock or discontinued. A communication would have been appreciated

Well Thought Out & Nicely Executed
March 10, 2017
Perfect in-the-fold pen that comes with three extra refills. Extends to fill length pen (you don't have to write with a "doll House pen" and cramp your fingers. The stylus tip on the other end is a nice useful addition Thanks SKINNY, for another super refined idea.
Extends to a "human" length Comes with 3 extra refills Stylus tip for when you have cheeseburger fingers.
Can't find any.

Great Idea and I do miss mine, but it falls apart easily
September 2, 2016
I have had the Skinny Mini Pen for less than year, so we will see how the 1 year guarantee works. It was Purchased in October but I didn't get it until Christmas. I do love the pen and miss it already. The tip that should stay forever attached to the pen fell off and down a grate when I went to use the pen today. First off, I frequently use the pen. I am current military and feel like I am missing something if I do not have a pen on me. It is very convenient to always have a pen somewhere that will always be with you and you can't forget it unless you forget your wallet... It does fit well inside of the wallet and doesn't make it any thicker than if you didn't have the pen in it. I do have some concerns about how it is constructed. First there is the tip that you unscrew to replace the ink cartridges. It screws into a fitting that is threaded inside for the tip and on the outside for the cap/stylus. This fitting appears to be glued into the telescoping shaft of the pen. The good part about this is it keeps it thin, but the bad part is that when you extend the pen, you are pulling on the Stylus/Cap which puts all of the pressure through the glued fitting. Then you twist the cap on and off putting torque through the glued in fitting. It is the weak spot of the pen and it appears that it failed for other people as well. It started failing about 4-5 months ago and I would tap it back in, unscrew the cap and pull on telescoping part to extend but today it fell out and was lost. I did get the actual refill part so on it's last use i was still about to write down what i needed to. In hindsight I probably should have glued the fitting but i never had superglue on me when I thought about it. The cap/stylus is screws on. I never counted how many twists it took to get it on or off but it seemed like quite a few especially when you need to write something quickly. This is forgivable since the convenience factor was there, but somehow in my wallet it would come unscrewed at times. I would pull my wallet out and the cap would fall on the floor. Luckily I never lost the cap! If I could make design changes: 1: Somehow fixing the glued fitting, not sure what the best fix for that would be other than some stronger glue or epoxy. 2: Changing the cap. The Screw on cap takes several twists to get the cap on/off. Reducing the number of twists would be nice. Not sure if a snap on/off cap would be a better choice or not. 3. Another option that might fix all of the issues would be to swap the end that has the pen tip. Put the tip on the thicker side of the pen opposite the stylus and have it be a twist it to extend the tip of the pen. Pull both ends to extend the tip and you actually have a thicker area to grip the pen. and the stylus end stays attached so it doesn't fall off of the clip. I do like the convenience factor of it easily fitting into my wallet and do not regret buying this pen, but at $14.95 it should be a little more durable and a lot more difficult to loose pieces.

Compact, fits well in the wallet Always have a Pen on you! writes well for small things eg: Checks, Notes, phone numbers, when someone steals your pen. Due to the small diameter and smooth shaft it is difficult to use for substantial writing... it does work in a pinch though! Refills come with it are nice and they last quite some time. Extra rubber end for the stylus (would be nice if it came with an extra cap just in case!)
The fitting that the cap/stylus screws into can become unglued and fall off. The Stylus/Cap is a screw on that takes several twists to put on or off. Stylus worked fine on my tablet but not so well on the new "Square" checks outs when signing my name. My finger worked better.

This little pen/stylus is amazing in it's simplicity and function. I never imagined something small enough to fit in a wallet and yet big enough to be so amazingly efficient .....

Great idea, but design could be improved
April 29, 2016
I bought one for me and one for my husband last year. Overall, it's a great idea to make a pen that fits in your wallet. The design could use improvement to make the pen more durable and a single piece item (i.e. no removable cap). I would prefer a screw mechanism pen with the stylus pad on the other end where the shirt clip is attached. That way it could be a one-piece design with no parts to lose.
Merchant Response:
Hi Kathy, Thank you for your feedback! We will look into creating a new design. Thank you for your review!
Small size when compact, ability to hold it more easily when extended.
Screw mechanism separate cap. I lost the cap despite having it tucked under the shirt clip while out - couldn't find the cap again :-(

Perfect name
April 20, 2016
Perfect size pen for a perfect size wallet. Wonderful to always know where your pen is hiding out in your purse. When you pull out your wallet to pay, your pen is right there to sign your receipt. No more germy community pen in the store or Doctors office.
Slim, small, writes very well.

Worst mini pen ever
April 14, 2016
The mini pen broke when I took it out of the package. It made a pop sound when I removed the cap and was immediately unusable!

Loved the pen while I had it. After carrying it in my wallet for a few days the clasp broke and I lost the pen. I found the clasp in the bill portion of my wallet but the pen must have fallen out without my noticing. Don't know if I will gamble that much money again for something that only survived a few days. I gave it two stars just because I really liked the pen while it lasted.
Merchant Response:

Too small to be of any use and made poorly, Not worth the money.

really poorly implemented -- comes apart easily
December 5, 2015
I had waited for a while to order this pen, in great anticipation. Much to my chagrin, it is very poorly done. Not only does one have to unscrew the cap every time it's used, but it's clip doesn't hold to the wallet well, and worst of all, it comes apart so easily that one has to be very careful with it so you don't lose anything. A real waste of money.
