Originally The Nittany Quill was simply an art supply store; but once customers began noticing her intricately designed calligraphy, Joy started selling her hand-made products in the store. Since then, Joy has been hand-crafting graduation certificates, framed quotes, mission statements, poems, booklets, wedding invitations and everything in-between. In addition to her calligraphy, Joy’s custom-made products have become very popular among those who are looking for that extra special gift.
One might think that with the introduction of the internet and online shopping, a store specializing in paper might fall by the wayside.
