Yes, we are open for business and shipping out orders!
Our little fountain pen store remains open and we will continue to ship orders worldwide so long as the post office remains in business!
We strongly urge you to upgrade to SuperVeloce shipping at checkout to ship your order USPS Priority Mail. We are experiencing some massive delays in some regions of the United States, and monumentally slow shipping internationally via USPS.
SuperVeloce shipping is only $5 additional on your order, and should help the process along faster when shipping. With SuperVeloce, we pay the additional costs for Priority Mail and process your order sooner than regular orders.
For international customers, we are switching to DHL Express Worldwide only for all outgoing international shipments. The additional costs, while high, are worth every penny during these times. Our experience with DHL has been excellent and packages often arrive on the other side of the world within days, not weeks.
While we are open, stock from some suppliers remains limited as smaller manufacturers have ceased production across the globe. Certain items may not be back in stock for weeks (or months), depending on how long this global pandemic lasts.
We greatly appreciate your support during these difficult times.
Stay safe, stay home, and if you have to go out, wear a mask. We are all in this together!
