FAQs about Calligraphy Nibs & Holders

We process payments through PayPal. You may use Visa, MasterCard and American Express via PayPal.


1. Place all of your pen components on the table. Choose the calligraphy nib you wish to utilize for your project. It will come with a metal piece (called the reservoir) and is where you'll find the metal grips. In the top of the pen stand, look for the metal grips. The metal has two open areas that are inserts for writing instruments.

2. To install the pen, press the nib or tip into the metal slot of the holder until it meets the line molded on to it. When inserting a nib into a pen holder, grasp its base.

It may seem too simple to be true, but ordinary water cleans calligraphy nibs nicely — you don't need to buy any specific pen cleaners! Fill a cup with tap water and keep it next to you while writing. Once finished, dab your nib dry with a cloth.
