Safe packing

Fountain pen and other stationery is so delicate, so care must be taken at the packing.
I have the experience that I was disappointed by damage of the parcel from abroad.  Also, I know the case that the other goods had defacement by ink leakage in the parcel.
Even if the insurance is to be applied, it takes time and effort.  Those must be avoided naturally.
The packing of our shop are care for the following points thoroughly.

  • To position products away from the corner of the inside of the parcel as possible.
  • To reinforce the parcel using a lightweight and strong material.
  • Sealing the package of ink bottle to avoid defacement of the other goods.
    This is the prevention for just in case of ink leakage accident.
