Description

Hand-crafted oblique calligraphy pen holder.

| ABOUT OUR PENS |
There are many pen-makers jumping on the bandwagon recently with the increased popularity of dip pen calligraphy arts. A pretty pen is great, but it needs to be functionally sound as well. Our pens are not only beautiful, they are also constructed with proper flange alignment to improve ink flow and reduce paper snagging. You can see more of our work through our Instagram page @inkmethis. We are a husband/wife team. Francisco is the craftsman and Kestrel is a professional calligrapher and calligraphy teacher. This all started during Kestrel's search for a nib holder that would be more comfortable to hold, help reduce her chronic thumb pain, and not cost a fortune. After lots of fruitless searching, Francisco started making them for her. Other calligraphers wanted one made after trying Kestrel's and the rest is history.

| SPECS |
• Use menu to select right or left handed oblique or straight holder
• Each holder is slightly different as they are handmade
• One nib included with every pen (Tachikawa G)
• Brass flange individually fitted for proper pen geometry
• Multiple colors available
• Length approximately 4 1/2" - 5"
• Thicker grip for reduced hand fatigue (similar to a Crayola marker)
• Flange fits all standard pointed pen nibs (including but not limited to Brause 361 "Blue Pumpkin, Brause Rose, Nikko G, Zebra G, Brause EF66, Hunt 101, Hunt 22, Hunt 512, Leonardt Principal EF, etc.)

| WAITLIST |
• Due to the demand for our pens, we have about a 3-4 week wait-list. We will always do our best to give you a happy surprise by shipping sooner.
• Upon purchasing this listing, the materials are reserved for you and your pen is added to Francisco's work queue.
• Please note that these are NOT the same pens offered on our independent website. These are a more economic option offered here on Etsy. The pens on our independent website are about an inch longer and are made of materials custom poured for us by a local California resin maker (unique colors specially made for inkmethis.com).

FAQs

Every stamp is custom made according to the text provided on the order notes. The requested information will be formatted with the font, casing and layout shown in the listing photos. If you would like any changes (i.e., different capitalization), please make special note of that on your order. We are always happy to adjust designs to create the stamp you have envisioned! Please note that if no other name/address is provided for the stamp, the shipping information will be used.
If you request a free proof on your order, it will be sent through the Etsy messaging system. Proofs are normally made within 24 hours (except on the weekends). We are more than happy to make changes to the layout, wording, or even switch to a different listing design option.

After delivery of the proof, you will have 2 business days to inform us of change requests. If we do not hear from you, we will proceed with your order as shown in the proof based on your order instructions and the purchased design. If you need more time to decide, please just let us know.

You can turn on email notifications in your Etsy account settings if you are concerned about missing the message.
The biggest factor that will change the look of your stamp is the paper being used. To test the imprint quality of your stamp, use it on plain printer paper.

Glossy, metallic, or coated papers: The ink sits on the surface of these papers and will take longer to dry. Too much pressure will make the ink smoosh out (very technical term) while you press down. For a cleaner imprint, apply less pressure.

Fibrous, textured or artisan paper: If the paper is looser weave, the ink will be able to bleed between the fibers. For a cleaner imprint, stamp a plain piece of paper a few times before stamping on your project paper. This will get some of the ink off the stamp and reduce the paper bleed.
While we have had a very positive relationship with USPS, every once in a while a package seems to be handled quite brutally. If your order arrives damaged, please simply send us a photo of the item and the packaging within 5 days of the tracking delivery date.
The white ink used in our stamps is permanent. As an added bonus, it will dry on non-porous surfaces such as glass, plastic, glossy papers, etc. However, for the same reason, you should take extra care not to leave the stamp open for extended periods of time (it has a cap/lid). If left uncapped, the ink on the surface of the stamp will dry and seal the stamp blocking further ink from coming through. You can clean it with rubbing alcohol. White ink creates an awesome look, but it is a little more temperamental than colored/black inks.
