On Etsy since 2014

If you appreciate fine art...put it in writing! Custom handcrafted art for the hand.

Do you appreciate fine art? Do you enjoy going to museums and galleries to see it? Perhaps marveling at the talent and creativity of the artist? Does it take you away from the ordinary? Wish you could enjoy it every day?

Do you have fine art in your home?
What if you could take it with you every day? Have it in your office; have it with you to show friends; use it to push back against a mundane world of mass production. What if you could hold it in your hand and enjoy it any time? How much more valuable would that art be to you personally? That is the goal of Penultimate Art, to create art for the hand that you can enjoy every day. If you appreciate fine art...put it in writing!

Maybe you just like beautiful, one of a kind pens -- you will find many of those here. My favorite aspect of this craft is working with a client to create art which is a unique reflection of who they are, something memorable in their life -- a personal portrait they can use every day and share the story of "their" pen -- a pen like no other. I would like to make that pen for YOU. Tell me what your pen would be about.

Thank you for visiting my shop! All pens are handmade by me. These one-of-a-kind creations are intended to be a unique reflection of the pen owner, not some mass produced status symbol. Different from jewelry, but eye catching just the same -- and as sure to draw compliments. Few people have ever seen a custom made pen. Different from art that hangs on a wall or sits on a shelf. My pens are art for the hand -- to be enjoyed daily!

The pens offered in my shop are just the beginning. I have chosen a range of materials and styles to help you see what is possible. If one is perfect for you, then I made a good guess, combining style and materials. My specialty is custom made pens. Designed to reflect the profession, hobby, history or specific taste preference of the owner. Most are created to overwhelm the recipient as a unique gift, but my clients usually end up getting something special for themselves as well. I hope you will give me an opportunity to help create that experience for you.

Returns and exchanges
My pens are given a final inspection and a protective coat of the same wax used by the British Museum for the protection and preservation of art and antiques. They are safely wrapped and include a brochure describing the type of wood or materials used, the pen making process, how to replace the ink fill, and how to care for your pen to ensure a lifetime of enjoyment.

If you are not delighted with your pen for any reason, please report any problems within three days of receiving your pen. Returns are accepted if the pen is returned in original condition. I depend on the repeat business of satisfied customers. Please give me the opportunity to resolve any issues to your satisfaction.
I accept credit and debit cards, Paypal and Etsy Gift Cards.
Standard shipping is USPS Priority mail 2-3 day delivery. I ship as quickly as I can -- same day if possible, generally by the next business day.

USPS Express service is offered if necessary.
Additional policies and FAQs
Your pen has been carefully handmade to your personal specifications from the finest components available. Treat it like you would a fine timepiece and it should give you a lifetime of service. Your satisfaction is my guarantee. If your pen ever requires service or repair, please send it back to me and I will do my best to restore it to original condition.
