Where To Buy Calligraphy Supplies in the Philippines

I recently got into calligraphy because of the people I follow on Instagram. I don’t really have the patience for it. I hated penmanship classes during my formative years so I don’t know what got into me. I bought the pretty tools and the lovely inks and papers so maybe I should just pursue this as another hobby since I already spent quite a lot for this.

My very first calligraphy set, I bought from Fully Booked. It contained 2 holders, a nib case, and I think 4 nibs. Then I immediately went to Scribe and bought more supplies. I love the look of nibs and their holders and I think I’ll stick to those and my trusty Noodler’s Ink Ahab Fountain Pen. Maybe I’ll dabble into watercolor calligraphy but I’ll stop at brush calligraphy because I find it too expensive.

If you are like me and want to get into this hobby, I’ve put together a list of online and physical stores where you can buy your own supplies.

Online Stores

Physical Stores

I hope this helps! If I missed a store, send me a comment and let me know so I can add it to this list. Big thanks to my Facebook friends who informed me of more shops!

    It is an expensive hobby. I stopped buying pens but I can’t help but want to get more. I have maybe 4-5 sets of pens plus a holder and 3 nibs. I used to dislike physical writing, I still do, but seeing how my penmanship improved has inspired me to keep trying. At least when I need to. This is a great list/resource, but I can’t afford to buy more supplies especially if I don’t practice as much as I should.

      Have you checked National Bookstore? Or maybe there’s a Scribe branch in Laguna.

    there’s also a good source of calligraphy pens and brushes at artbar in Bonifacion High Street. This is a branch of powerbooks specific for art supplies and materials.
