Fountain Pen Nib Repairs and Customizations Price List
 

We specialize in nib modifications and repairs. We also offer  limited  pen body repair services if nib work is also being done.  Please call us first before sending in your pen or nib.

If you make a  purchase, new or pre-owned, it can be customized prior to shipping with a one to two day turnaround – consult the chart below for pricing.  Pens and nibs purchased from us within the past six months will be customized on a rush basis (approximately two week turnaround) at no additional cost. Normal customization fees apply.

All repairs will be subject to a $30.00 assessment and evaluation fee.This also applies to all customizations of pens and nibs not purchased from us within the past six months.  The standard turnaround time for these repairs and customizations is six months. Work can be done on a rush basis (approximately two week turnaround) – this doubles the cost of all fees.

Please feel free to call us with any questions, and we  look forward to making your pen write as good..and probably better…than it ever did out of the box.
