Selecting a Holder
Selecting a Holder Size
One of the hardest things to choose without actually holding a pen is what diameter of holder is most comfortable for an individual. The cofort is the most important aspect of the pen holder. Just as every person's hand is a different size, we try to make a large selection of diameters available for purchase. Here is how we suggest to find a comfortable size.
Take a standard pencil. You can wrap it in string, tape, cloth, modeling clay or anything else and create a size and shape that is comfortable to you. Once you have the size worked out to your comfort, measure the dimension on it from the below image. Dimension B & C are the most important and the dimensions we show in our descriptions.
Another option is to go to a local hardware store, craft store or lumberyard that carries wooden dowels. You can pick up and hold different diameters of wood in your hands. You should try to find a diameter that allows your thumb and two fingers which hold the holder to have a small space, about 1/16" to 1/8" in between each finger. Next would be to try each size that is one size above and below that size dowel. Whichever one is most comfortable would be the size the finger rest area dimension would be in our descriptions.
If for some reason we don't have that exact size in stock, feel free to contact us and we can custom turn a holder based on your size requirement, wood choice and decorative end choices.
You can also send us the dowel or pencil wrapped in tape, string or cloth and we can duplicate that exact shape!
