One of the big sellers based in the US. JNB kindly put together a list of supplies you can use for starting out (or for my online course), you can see the list if you click on the link above. The have practically everything relating to calligraphy, even hard-to-find literature about penmanship and the possibility to get the Letter Arts Review magazine. If shipping overseas they wait for you to confirm the shipping costs, which I find very friendly.

Big German online store for art supplies, also brick & mortar stores in big German cities. You can get everything you need for calligraphy at this place, with one exception: nibs. They don’t have a lot of them. But you can get papers, ink, markers, pencils, watercolors, etc. Shipping can take a while, but I’ve only had good experiences in the stores.
