Our Story

Our Story Inspired by the Pen

Hey there, I’m Gisèle and I’m one of the co-founders of Inspired by the Pen.  We create one of a kind pens that makes writing just a little more special.

How often do you buy something for yourself that’s really different, unique and handmade.  Something that makes you feel unique?

Or have you ever gone through the frustration of buying a gift for someone who’s hard to buy for? Like a teacher, boss, parent, friend, or even your spouse that has everything and wants nothing?

When you’ve been tasked with buying something as a gift, or even for yourself, you want it to be something that will be treasured forever because it’s unique, special and can’t be found in department stores.

That’s why the pens we design are only created in small quantities of 6-8 pieces in a collection.

Both Joe and I have experience in trying to find a gift for someone who is hard to buy for, or has everything and wants nothing and we don’t want you to feel that way.   We want you to feel

  • joy and not frustration when looking for something really unique
  • excited having a one of a kind piece in hand for yourself or as a gift  
  • confident that it’s creative and so special that it doesn’t turn into one of those forgotten gifts that will stay hidden in a drawer forever

And if you need some help choosing something special, or even customized, please contact us
