Come See Us at the DC Pen Show!

Rachel and I will be at the DC Pen Show today and tomorrow, wearing the very shirts you see here. We’re excited to meet all of you who are able to attend and get to geek out with pen talk. We aren’t going to have a table or booth set up, we’ll just be flitting around the show talking to vendors and other pen fans. We’ll be taking pictures and shooting video for Ink Nouveau, too. We’re really looking forward to it, so be sure to stop and chat with us when you see us there!

We’ll be walking around all over the place, but we’ll be hanging out a lot over at the Edison Pen Co. table with Brian Gray and his wife. We plan to be there today mid-day from somewhere around 12pm-3pm, and tomorrow (Saturday) for most of the day. Don’t be afraid to stop us and say hi, we’re literally going there just to meet you!

  • Soulcomfort

    So nice to see the entire family–even the little man!  Love the shirts!!!
    Have fun.  Take videos and pics for all of us who can't attend.  😉

  • Man, I so wish I was going! I really wanted to talk with you all this year… 🙂

    Perhaps next year though!

    So, you guys are not setting up a table at all this year? Will you continue to not set up for future shows? Or is this just for this year, cause you're busy?

    I hope you continue to sell at the shows. I like being able to buy stuff in person. 😀

    I plan on attending and will be looking for you guys (hope I have the nerve to say hello).  Joseph is beautiful and congratulations on the new coming addition.  Carol S.

  • Aunt Jill

    I can't wait to see you!

  • Haha, isn't his little shirt the best?

  • Oh yes, we're definitely going to do lots of pics and vids. We just got back not long ago from the Friday Pre-Show, and I'll work tonight to get up some good stuff from the day.

  • We're not doing a table at all this year, just walking around and talking to people, taking pictures, video, and having a good time. Honestly, I don't know if we'll go back to having a table again…this year it's SOO much less stress than last year. When we're working the table, we're not able to walk around and really interact with anyone, which is really our favorite part! I know it's nice to see stuff in person, but it's really taxing on us to set up a table. We'll have to see how this year goes with us doing more of a 'walkaround' approach, then we'll assess what to do in future years.

  • Please do say hello! We'll be there all day Saturday, wearing the shirts you see here 😉

  • Yay! It's going to be a lot of fun, I think it'll be a great show.

  • That's a very good point Brian. I'd rather have you guys stay in business only online, than burn out trying to go to pen shows. 🙂

    Either way, I do hope you keep coming, even if not to sell. It's great for everyone to get to see you!

    Keep up the good work. And have a great time at the show. 😀

  •  I really appreciate your understanding. We'd love to 'do it all', but our online store is our priority. And since we run a pretty tight little operation without a lot of extra manpower, doing shows are something that put a strain on our online store. I think we will continue to at least attend the DC show, since it's so close to us. We'd planned to do more this year (like Columbus), but Rachel's pregnancy is keeping us close to home. I don't know how much better things will be with a newborn and a toddler….traveling is tough for us these days! I promise to make up for it with gobs and gobs of videos and pictures 🙂

  • Those look great, some people wear matching Mickey ears. Some get matching ink drop shirts.  😉

  • Or both! 😉

  • Steven A Horvat

    Wow, just watching last years videos I'd be interested to come see the show next year. Will you be making a v-blog about the show and pictures?

  • I'm going show-less in 2011 due to conflicts during Raleigh and recovering from surgery this weekend, but I hope to see you Goulets in both places next year! Pen shows are really the best in my limited experience, and I can't blame you at all for wanting to go as attendees instead of exhibitors. I'm eager to see the results.

  • This year we went and didn't set up a table, just so we could talk to people and blog with pictures and video about the show. We actually JUST got back from DC and I'll be working on editing everything over the next day or two.

  • Nicky

    Hope you had a great time, can't wait to read all about it! 

    Those shirts are awesome, BTW, and Joseph looks adorable. 

  • We did have a great time! It was sooooo nice to just go and be pen fans, and not have to haul two tons of ink and paper back and forth! Hehe, I'm glad you like the shirts. They're fun 🙂
