Patented in 1913 and introduced two years later, the A-Series nib is where it all started for Speedball.¬† Its unique multi-purpose design allows artists to create a variety of strokes with just a flip of the pen.
- Hold the A-Series nib perpendicular to the base line, keeping the ‚Äúshoe‚Äù of the pen nib flat on the paper‚Äôs surface. This produces a uniform stroke in any direction with squared beginnings and endings.
- Hold the A-Series nib at an angle to achieve either diamond-shaped beginning and ending stroke or a square finish on a diagonal stroke.
- Turn the A-Series nib on its back to use the broad, flat end of the pen to produce either lettering with thicks and thins or to create the serifs on lettering of uniform width.
Available in (6) nib widths, the A-Series nib is ideal for any Gothic or Monoline lettering style that has lines of uniform width with a squared finish. ¬†Suitable for use with any straight/classic style penholder.
