HisNibs.com update Remember Mom!
May 8th, 2018


Celebrate Moms!

It seems like only a year ago that we celebrated Mother's Day!

So, just a few suggestions for pens that always seem to be popular among the 'mom crowd' -- with a certain leaning towards pink, red and purple.

NOTE: You may have noticed in recent months that the prices listed on HisNibs.com already reflect the 20% discount. For instance, the new Monza retails for $20.00, but is shown as $16.00 on my website. I've removed the old system of crossed-through retail prices due to the Federal Trade Commission cracking down on the whole idea of 'suggested retail price', when no one ever sells an item for that amount anyway!

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!
