The VIP Lounge
The Subreddit r/Vanness forum is a private place for customers to discuss all things pens, paper and ink.
I really enjoy shopping with Vanness. The paper selection is eclectic and with some difficult to find brands. Ink also ranges from the old standbys to some exotic manufacturers. It's great to have available such a selection. Shipping is priced reasonably and everything always arrives well packaged and quickly!
This family run shop doesn’t just provide an excellent inventory of ink options (my passion), but the most incredibly prompt order fulfillment…anywhere. It’s normal for them to turn around an order in less than 24 hours, hand written note of appreciation included. The Vanness folks are terrific…seriously…they’re a credit to efficiency, great inventory, competitive pricing…the whole nine yards.
Vanness is my favorite stationers store, bar none. The personal service makes me feel that each and every customer is important. My favorites are the magnificent selection of papers, especially fine Japanese papers. The amazing array of inks that have been analyzed with flow, opacity, sheen, and shading characteristics info given as a helpful reference before buying, as well as generous testers. Last but not least, the specialty gratis engraving, embossing service on select items, what a rare treat!
Lovely website, fast shipping, delightful selection, truly excellent people. I cannot say enough good things about Vanness! I would recommend them to anyone looking for new stationery supplies, and anything else they carry. I'm a fountain pen hobbyist and their 4mL samples are perfection!
Great selection and fast shipping. Everything is packaged extremely well. I've never had anything arrive damaged or broken. Any questions have been promptly and professionally answered. All of my stationery buying starts here.
Their sample sizes are larger than any other sites I've looked for ink samples and well worth the price. They ship fast and deliver quality every time.
Vanness offers a truly massive variety of pen/ ink/ stationery products, and the staff is incredibly friendly, knowledgeable, and responsive, but the best thing about shopping here is that they actually have a bay of those precogs (you know, like in Minority Report?) so they are able to read your mind and know what you’re about to order, so that once you place the order, they’re able to fill and shoot the package off to you incredibly fast.
