I am and will always be a paperinkarts customer for all of my calligraphy needs. Your customer service is second to none, and showing appreciation for even a small order is a huge plus for me.

Last week I ordered items from Paper & Ink Arts and I want to compliment all of you on the great service and I was amazed at how quickly everything came and wrapped so that everything arrived in excellent shape! Your site made it so easy to “shop” and I had such a good time while selecting what I was needing, too. Thank you for your warm and wonderful service and as soon as I am in need of art supplies, I will be back.

Thanks again for having such a helpful, polite and patient group working there. I have been trading there for many years and Paper & Ink Arts and you are still my favorite calligraphy supply store.

Paper and ink arts has been the best source for art, lettering arts and calligraphy materials. they are kind and respectful and offer many suggestions for items never used or new materials never heard of. They have a handle on what is going on what works and what doesn't from all their customers and they keep good notes! Best source in my humble opinion.

I love this store. It has wonderful products at great prices (I found the pricing to be way better than Amazon) and my order was shipped quickly. I am really pleased that I found them and already have another order started. I highly recommend them based on my recent experience.

Customer Reviews

I have been doing business with Paper and Ink Arts for over 15 years, the last four as a calligraphy instructor. They carry calligraphy products I cannot get in my local arts and crafts stores. When I started teaching the staff was very helpful in figuring out the quickest and cheapest shipping options for my needs. Best of all, my supplies have always arrived in time for my classes! I have found them to be a great company to do business with.
