Please empty your pen of ink and package it carefully before sending it in.

I ship all packages USPS Priority Mail ($10 within USA) unless otherwise requested. If you would like a different shipping method, have specific shipping requests, or would like your pen to be insured, please let me know.

why get a custom nib grind in the first place?

You’ve already customized everything else about your writing experience: fountain pen, ink, paper… this can be that little extra something to make your writing or art-making unique.

Do you retip nibs?

I do not do any retipping, but you can send your pen to Greg Minuskin for that. He does great work!


You can RSVP for a pen show appointment here. Any open spots remaining will be available on the day of the show.

Each appointment is 30 minutes; in that time, we can usually do 1-2 pens. If there’s time to do more, I’m happy to fit in as many as possible.

Please empty and flush pens of ink before the appointment.

I accept cash, Venmo, PayPal, and credit cards.
