Frequently Asked Questions

How to choose a dip pen nib?

We get asked this question a lot and its hard to recommend nibs without knowing the hand pressure of the person or the type of writing they want to do etc. etc.
So we would recommend you buy a starter or selection set to try a variety out for yourself. It's small investment into yourself to find out what works best for you.

There is also more information to help you at our sister site http://www.jandtsartandcalligraphy.co.uk/online-shop/how_to_choose_a_dip_pen_nib_for_drawing.php

How do I find my postage/shipping costs?

Postage in the UK is by one of the following;
 '1st class signed for/Recorded delivery', we feel this is the most cost effective way to know the package will arrive - for lighter / small items or '1st class Standard' where we don't take any responsibly for items lost in transit or Royal Mail Special Delivery Next day before 1pm - gaurenteed next day and is insured or our Next Day couriers, again we are confident it will arrive safe and sound, next working day before 4.00 pm.
USA and EU is by 'International signed for'. We feel this is the only safe and sure way - for both you and us - to know that the package will arrive and in a timely manner (usually within 3-5 days).

To find the estimated cost of postage/shipping - after placing an item in your shopping cart, using the 'add to cart' button - your cart contents will show 'shipping estimate' on the fourth line down for the UK.
If you are outside the UK, use the 'drop down' list next to 'Country' and then click 'update totals', this will update the 'shipping estimate' for you.

For the UK, when you proceed through the checkout, you will be given a choice of postage method, this will give an accurate cost of the postage.

For the USA and EU, when you proceed through the checkout, your postage cost will be shown for 'International signed for'. If you wish to use '1st class Air Mail' - where we don't take any responsibility for items lost in transit - please email us

For countries outside the European Union, a customs declaration is fixed to the package. An import duty charge may be made by the customs authority in the country of destination.

How long does it take to receive my purchases?

We aim to dispatch all orders within 1-2 working day (Mon-Fri) and most are dispatched same day if received before 12 Midday (GMT)

The delivery time depends on where you are -
