NOTE: These are new indie makers I’ve learned about since posting my Indie Pen Makers Update. All of these makers will be added to that main post, but I want to feature them, since the previous makers got their “turn.”
For the purposes of these posts, I’m putting the following limitations on the term “Indie Maker”:
- Only or regularly works with customers to make unique/custom pens
- Fully handmade, uses CNC lathes with hand finishing, or 3D prints custom pen designs
- Creates kitless pens
- Not sold in stores (or only sold in local brick & mortar store)
- Makes one-off or short runs
Even with the addition of these new makers, that list will not be comprehensive, that’s virtually impossible. However, if you know of a maker who meets the qualifications above and is not included, please let me know. Also, if you know the location of a maker that doesn’t have one listed, let me know that, too.
Keep in mind, I have not purchased a pen from these makers, so consider this an informational list, not an endorsement.
This list is alphabetical by company name — it is not ranked.

Thanks for reading this far, I hope you enjoyed my post. Once again, if you know of a maker who meets the qualifications above and is not included on this post, please let me know.
