Calligrpahy requires a lot more tools than most other writing instruments and not a day goes by that I don’t get at least one message of people asking what tools they need to get their own calligraphy adventure started.
I am writing the calligraphy 101 series, which should give you a general idea on the tools needed, but for some people that is not enough. Some people want to know exactly what products they should get. If you are one of those people – this post is for you.

The moment you first experience the joy of having a little device mixing ink for you, you’ll never want to go back into a non-automatic ink stirring reality. I had seen people using Lab Stirrers quite a while ago, back when I was still mostly brush lettering and only dabbling in the world of Calligraphy.

I haven’t written a proper nerdy post in a while, and since it took me quite a while to figure this out in a way that worked for my use case, I decided to get this all written up, in case anyone else here takes enough pride in their coding, that they just refuse to pay 150 bucks a year for a thing they can write up in under two hours.

What am I even talking about? Discounts and fees, based on the Items added in your cart. I’m not talking about applying some Coupon Code based on the Cart Information, but a proper positive or negative fee, that shows up as it’s own line in the Cart. Here’s how you do it.
