Naming

Please require on the chart if you want to name. You have two choices for naming.

Personalized maki-e name painting on the barrel.

1). Products which allow for maki-e name painting:
All barrels coated with Urushi lacquer, such as the Special model, Writer model, and Urushi model.

2). Location of maki-e name painting
The location for the maki-e name painting is on the pen barrel, near the end (opposite from the nib end).

3). Length of naming
We reccomend not more than 4 characters in one line

4). Size
A size of each character is from 3mm square to 5mm square.

5). Fonts
Japanese kanji characters
So you have a choice of fonts.
In the case of Latin alphabets, we recommend using just your first and middle initials with your full last name because of the small space (eg "K. M. Purcell"). You may also choose Chinese characters (Japanese "Kanji").
If you can explain the original meaning of your family name, we will translate it to Japanese and engrave it in Chinese characters (Japanese "kanji"). The results can be quite fun. For example, we once engraved a pen for a man whose name was Mr. Woodside. This was translated "Moriwaki" (in kanji) on his pen.
Wood means "Mori", and "side" means "waki" in Japanese. Mr. Woodside was very glad to learn his "Japanese" name and began to tell all his friends, "I am Moriwaki-san". He also ordered from us a special "hanko" (seal) engraved with his new Japanese name.

6). Color

Gold Silver Red("Shu") Black.
