It's taken me a while to completely update it but it's here at last!

I will also have professionally printed copies and they'll be available to buy at £3.75 per copy with the cost being refunded to you with your first order of £20 or more.


Pilot Parallel Pens sets of 3 now discontinued December 14, 2015 10:11

As the title suggests, unfortunately Pilot Pens have now discontinued their Parallel Pen sets of 3 and PenmanDirect are as of today now completely out of stock of them.

However, this doesn't mean that you can't still buy the pens you require - I'll be taking delivery of the new pens later this week and if there is a demand, I'll be packaging them into sets of 4 (1.5mm, 2.4mm, 3.8mm and 6.0mm) and offering them at a special lower price than all four would be if bought separately.

Of course you'll also still be able to buy the individual pens as before.


Special offers on Pilot Parallel Pens December 02, 2015 10:00

Pilot have recently repackaged their fantastically popular Parallel Pens so we've slashed the price of the sets of three pens AND unboxed individual pens - in sizes 1.5 and 2.4 - to make way for the new stock! Visit our clearance page - click here for a shortcut - for all the details.


The best oblique pen for calligraphy? December 01, 2015 17:34

I had the pleasure to meet the man who makes the solid wood oblique pens that we sell here on PenmanDirect. Rodger Mayeda and his wife Dianne visited me whilst I was in the USA earlier this year and he is a man who is totally committed to producing the finest oblique pens for calligraphy. I had placed a large order with him months before and was delighted to meet the man himself in order that he could hand them to me personally.

Indeed, an American friend of PenmanDirect, calligrapher Lindsey Bugbee speaks so eloquently on the pens made by Rodger that I'm going to simply link to her blog post all about them and what makes them so special - please click here to read the article

Enjoy the read and don't forget to treat yourself to a pen (or two!) when you come back.

Kim.
