Also, you don't have to print this form out. Simply fill it out online and click the "SUBMIT" button at the bottom.
You can go ahead and send in your pens/nibs once you've filled out the form and submitted it. No further action is required.
If you would like to "show" me how you hold your pen feel free to send any images or links to videos to my email address below.
For valuable pens, please consider shipping via FedEx/UPS. If sending valuable pens, consider sending with "Signature Required". If you have a large pen collection you may want to consider a collectibles insurance policy as they often cover pens during transit (although some may require "signature delivery" to cover any loss). Such as ones that can be found at: http://collectinsure.com (no affiliation).
It is best to empty your pen of ink before shipment. Please avoid shipping your pens in their heavy original packaging. I have pen tubes available or you can use PVC tubing to protect your valuable pens from being crushed, etc. Feel free to contact me if you have any questions on shipping.
USPS and additional insurance: After doing some research it seems there might be a greater chance of "things" happening to an "insured" package. The fact that something "insured" might make it more of a target. In addition, it appears that it is difficult (forms to be filled out and months to wait) to get reimbursed on a claim with USPS.
For expensive pens I recommend shipment to me and return shipment to you via FedEx Express Saver or FedEx Home. If you declare the value over $400 they will automatically require a signature.
Currently all nib work is tested with Waterman Serenity Blue on Rhodia or Franklin-Christoph paper.
