Minimising the Covid-19 risk

I turn our pens in isolation but never alone as I always have the radio on in the workshop and Catherine pops in to keep an eye on me not to mention the dog and the 2 cats!!

Irish Pens workshop in rural County CavanIrish-pens-dog-best-man's-friendIrish-Pens-Cat-Tyson

We assemble our pens in our office, only Catherine and I work in the office. We clean down all work surfaces before we start assembling every pen.


When the pen is assembled we prepare the pen box by spraying the inside with sanitiser aerosol and wipe the outside of the box with a sanitiser cleaner also. We do this while wearing our disposable gloves. We wipe the pen with sanitiser and put it into the gift box, we wrap the box in recycled corrugated card and put all into our biodegradable mailer bag, one last puff of sanitiser aerosol into the bag and then we seal it up for posting. We give the outside of the packet another wipe down before we bring it to our local post office for shipping.


We dispose of the gloves after each pen and wipe the surface down in preparation for the next pen.

As we say in Ireland it is better to be safe than sorry!

We hope this helps you feel confident in ordering one of our pens at this time

We are posting pen gifts directly to recipients for our clients as they can't to visit others at this time, so don't let Covid-19 stop you putting a smile on that someone specials face. 

Be safe, keep washing your hands and remember 2 meters distance when out and about to keep yourself safe.
