After years at IAP as a compulsive buyer of amazing blanks, I face reality…I can only turn so many pens. I retire this year from SELLING pens. Here you will find many, many GREAT blanks and a lot of AMAZING ones. Additional ‘SALE’ threads will soon follow.

CLAIMING. Claiming your selection on this thread is the only way to secure blanks: the first claiming post is the winner. For that reason, do not edit your post. Instead just make a new post if you are claiming more, or changing anything. That keeps the time stamp of the post fair for all. “Claiming” PM’s will not be honored since a PM is not seen by other bidders. Feel free to consult via PM. I will contact you via PM to arrange payment.

SHIPPING. Shipping will be via USPS Priority Flat Rate, and that cost will be added to your purchase. I must restrict shipping to USA and to Canada. I apologize for this limitation, but I suffer some health issues, and simply am not in a position to learn all the ‘Rules’ of international shipping. I will need assistance from Canadians as to the best way to ship to you.

PAYMENT. I will accept checks or Paypal Friends and Family (ONLY Friends and Family). Two things to note here. By prior inquiry Paypal has approved the “no fee” F&F method for non-commercial transactions…this has their blessing. I use “F&F” to avoid the fee. This means you cannot fund your purchase through Ppal with a credit card; the funds need to come out of your checking account. If you are making a large purchase, and need to use a credit card, please coordinate with me via PM, and we can work something out. This would be the exception rather than the norm.

Please pay promptly, and please do not claim, and then fail to pay. If I do not receive Ppal payment within 4 days, I will, without notification, consider your bid null, and may relist the item(s). (Exception for payment via check, of course.) Failing to follow through would be very disruptive, and not fair to myself or others. I will update my listing periodically to indicate current availability. You can check claiming posts BETWEEN UPDATES. Here we go:

Update as of this post: all blanks claimed have been marked as such on my listing. For those who claimed and then paid, the "CLAIMED" annotation will not be changed to "SOLD" on the listing. Just know that "claimed" = "sold", once you have paid. I intent to ship all paid blank requests within two working days of payment rec'd. Thanks to all compulsive blank buyers...I am one of you. :rolleyes: :biggrin:
