Hi Coach. I don’t make pens, but I do make bottle stoppers and use a lazy susan rack that hold 35 of them.
Here is the link to the project:

I don’t make either one, but a guy in my craft group displays his pens on a piece of drift wood. He just drilled holes and puts the writing end in them. Wish I had a picture. You could cut out some sort of shape to use instead of drift wood.

Same as Paul, I do not make pens but I have made displays for them and drilled holes in a tiered rack. I have seen pens displayed in grooved bottom boxes. Good luck selling them. I have seen a lot of pens for sale but few sold.
