Blots - a Gold Mine for Calligraphy Pens & Ink
Item was well packaged but delivery speed could be improved.
Fast delivery. Quality products. I'm new to calligraphy and I thought it was great to have the information needed before choosing which nib I was going to chose. Thanks!
The 11 nibs and check out process was really wonderful...until it came to the packaging of the items for shipping. After the box arrived to my home, the paper work inside came stapled with a bottomless ziplock bag that left all my nibs being bounced around loose in the box and hitting its sides. So, that is a lot of bouncing around starting from the UK and going non-stop all the way to Canada. After carefully checking each nib, we did not find damage to the tips. Nonetheless, impressed with everything else about the company and product except the packaging end of things...not so good. Cheers.
On 20-Jun-2017 the supplier responded:I am sorry that somehow the nibs you ordered managed to escape from their small ziplock bag. Obviously I do not use bottomless bags but I cannot imagine how something that weighed as much as a couple of feathers (11 nibs) managed to burst out of their bag. I have quite a number of other reviews that comment on how well packed their orders are. I can only imagine that the lack of air pressure on the flight somehow managed to burst the airtight bag. In twenty plus years of mailing parcels I have never had this happen before. However I am still sorry that your parcel did not arrive with you in good condition.
On 20-Jun-2017 the customer added:Dear John:Thank you for your prompt response and why the bag was bottomless, we will both never know why for sure. In any case, perhaps by stuffing in some newspaper or styrofoam in the box would help to greatly reduce the jostle room in the event that, however unlikely, the small items may become loose, again. Kind regards.
