Writing In Style is a business started in 2010. My aim is to provide customers with unique writing instruments. Everything I do is driven by the requirements of the customer. The most important thing to me is that when you purchase one of my pens you walk away happy.
My name is Dave Murphy. All pens/pencils are handmade and hand finished by me. I have been working with wood for about 11 years now and have produced everything from pens and pencils through to beds and kitchen cabinets.
Writing In Style is a member of the UK Association of Penturners and also the International Association of Penturners.
What We Do
All of our pens or pencils are made from a high quality components. The main body of the pen/pencil is made from either wood or a man made product (acrylic,acrylester or some other specialist material). The main body is turned on a lathe down to the appropriate size for the pen/pencil. It is then sanded and polished to a wonderful shine (I do not use a CA glue finish on wood as I find that it makes the pen feel as though it is made out of plastic). The pen/pencil is then assembled and any mechanisms fully checked.
Fountain Pens in our executive range are delivered with a Piston Style Ink Pump where available whereas others will be provided with a cartridge. The cartridge will never be pushed in so as not to clog up the pen and to remove the chances of leaks during transit.
Finally the pen will go through a quality check to ensure that there are no issues with it. Although these checks will flag up most issues allowing them to be rectified before delivery there may be occasions where a problem may show up after delivery. Every pen has a 6 month warranty so just let us know what the problem is and we’ll get it fixed for you.
Personalised Porcelain and Watercolour Art
Judith’s Kat Collection range of cute cartoons hand-painted to order onto elegant white porcelain. The porcelain is sourced and bought in plain white form. After it is cleaned, the designing and painting can start to take place. Once the paint is dry, it is fired – at home in the family’s main oven! The porcelain and paint are both dishwasher-proof, but like all hand-produced items, they must be treated with care, and never scoured or cleaned with abrasives. Judith is always on the lookout for porcelain items that can be painted, or ideas for personalisation, and welcomes any suggestions.
Judith began her artistic career as a watercolour painter, and has sold her Kat Collection watercolour cartoons in many countries throughout the world. She and her husband have devised a unique and amusing alphabet in which each letter is shaped like a cat, and she displays this work at craft fairs in her local area. She has painted a wide assortment of names written in ‘Kat’, as well as ‘Welcome’ watercolour pictures, ‘Good luck’ pictures and even a sign for the ‘Toilet’! Because each picture is painted to order, Judith can ensure that the cats pictured interact with each other according to the how the letters fall in the name being ordered.
