Episode #01: Ink Nouveau Intro

This is the first Ink Nouveau episode ever, an insight into my daily life as the pen maker behind the Goulet Pen Company. Part 1 covers my views on passion through writing, and a tour of my ‘warehouse’ and shipping operation.

Part 2 covers a tour of my workshop where I make each of my pens by hand. I have a host of different woods and resin materials that I use to make each pen. Rachel (my wife) thinks I have too much wood, more than I’ll ever use in my lifetime, and she’s absolutely right! My shop is messy, but I’m okay with that. I think it’s been ‘picture-worthy’ clean once, when I had set up all my tools and before I made my first pen. Since then, it’s always a mess, because it’s a ‘working’ shop!

    Hey Brian
    what a great idea, it is hard to describe the fun and joy of writing with words on paper.
    Seeing and hearing you is great!
    good luck and hope to see lots of eps

    Jeremy, this will be the first of many, for sure. Things are going to slow down a little bit with the baby coming ANY DAY now, but I'll pick it back up soon enough.

    Brian, good to see how things work in your business, and your passion for writing!

    All the best with your company and new baby!

  • I would think it would be awesome to see an update. It occurred to me that a year is an official eon. So, when you guys get a chance, it would be great to see how differently your stock and shipping processes have changed.

  • I agree!
