His Nibs celebrates his 20th Anniversary in July!!
Today's 20% offering is the Jinhao Porcelain Painting series
Please take a look at my 'thank you' video here, commemorating 20 years of support for HisNibs.com!
As mentioned in the video, I will be selecting a different pen model, ink or other related item each day (or more likely every several days) with a 20% discount as a 'thank you' for your support. This would apply even to those items already discounted, such as a Monteverde or Conklin pen if I choose to offer one (with those brands, I already price them 20% off of retail).
This is while supplies last, so you may want to jump on something quickly if it catches your fancy on a particular day.
To keep you updated, and because there will be such a quick turn-around with ever-changing items, I'm going to ask your forbearance if I send out these newsletter updates as frequently as once a day during July (rather than the average of 2 per month). I'd ask that you just delete or ignore a day's newsletter if it's of no interest rather than unsubscribe from the newsletter, as I only do this once every 20 years.
As this newsletter goes out to a mailing list of thousands of customers, please understand if there's a delay in answering your email queries or orders after one of these is sent. We will respond in order received and as soon as possible!
IMPORTANT SERVICE NOTE: Every nib that ships from His Nibs is closely examined under high magnification and tuned or adjusted if needed. About 85% of modern nibs need some adjustment out-of-the-box from the manufacturer for an optimal writing experience. Most commonly, the tines of the nib are misaligned -- which would cause scratchiness at the minimum; the slit between the tines is partially or fully closed -- which would starve the nib of ink and at best cause skipping; or the slit between the tines is too wide -- which will either again cause skipping, or conversely, flooding. There are other factors -- such as separation of the nib from the feed -- that are inspected and repaired before any pen leaves the Palace. The only 100% guarantee of course comes when the pen is actually filled with ink and written with for the first time, but our pre-shipping inspections and tunings have eliminated 99.99999 (my finger is getting tired) of the frustrations that a customer experiences when first using a new fountain pen. Although this can be time-consuming on occasion, it affords our customers a much more pleasant experience when receiving a fountain pen from His Nibs -- and saves us the frustration of dealing with returns!
