About Us

Here at Turning Point Pen Co., we create high-end items with impact. Our goal is to add true value to the lives of our customers through our products and the meaning behind them. We offer pens from themed collections designed to best fit a certain occasion or moment as well as custom pens that will best fit you or someone close to you.

Our Background

The Turning Point Pen Co. was started by Michael Hyland, a native of the Richmond, Virginia area. Through his various experiences being a student, college athlete, and forward-thinking young man in the American work force, Michael always had a notion that he would one day start a business of his own. The business grew from a few unique aspects: Michael’s long-time passion for lathe work (with which he loves the concept of turning every-day materials into unique and valuable items), his ambition and challenge-oriented work ethic, his drive to do things in a unique way, and his desire to add value to the people and community around him. ​As this passion progressed from a hobby, he realized he possessed an innate entrepreneurial mindset. With this, he started the Turning Point Pen Co.

“It’s a masterpiece. The colour: amazing. The fine details, too. Pictures and video don’t do it justice at all. I view it as art work that doubles as a pen.” ~ Boyd Reid

“I ordered a Turning Point product as a unique gift that would stand out. Michael was really easy to work with and took the time to create the meaning I wanted in this gift. The finished product surpassed my expectations in both material quality and craftsmanship, and my friend absolutely loved it!” ~ Krista Samek
