You may have heard about the Lamy Royal Red Studio contest that we did back in October of 2012…we’re going to give some more away! February is often associated with Valentine’s Day and love, and we thought it would be fun to host a contest where you write a love letter expressing your love for fountain pes.

Here’s a list of all of the prizes that we plan to give away:

  • Two Lamy Royal Red Studios, brand new with a 14k nib of your choice: EF, F, M, or B
  • One of 5 bottles of ink, your choice of:
  • Noodler’s Purple Heart, a lubricated purple Goulet exclusive
  • Noodler’s Qin Shi Huang, the latest Noodler’s color that fluoresces red under blacklight

That’s a total of 7 prizes that will go to 7 individual winners, with one winner for each prize.





The contest will begin as soon as this post goes live on, and will end at 11:59 p.m. Eastern US time on Thursday, February 28, 2013. To enter, you will need to physically mail a letter or postcard to:

Goulet Pen Company, LLC
10201 Maple Leaf Court
Ashland, VA 23005-8141
United States

You will need to include the following information:

  • Your full name
  • The specific designation “Love Letter” somewhere on the letter
  • Your email address (so we can can contact you in a timely manner if you win)
  • Why you love fountain pens

That’s it! If you’re unable to physically mail in your entry, you could also scan and email your submission to us, as long as we get it by the contest deadline. This way, if you’re outside of the country and aren’t able to physically mail it to us in time, you have that option. We will plan to share some of our favorite entries, but the content of your submission won’t be a factor in your chance of winning. Still though, we plan to hang the letters on the wall of our office, so we’d love to see some fun stuff!


All qualifying entries will be compiled from the physical and emailed submissions, with each person’s name compiled into a single list with a number assigned to each qualifying entry. From this numbered list, we will randomly select the winning numbers using The specific prizes will be randomly assigned to each winner. If you’re chosen for one of the Studios, you will get your choice of nib size (EF, F, M, B), and if you’re chosen for the ink you will have your choice of either Purple Heart or Qin Shi Huang.

We will announce the winners of the contest in a blog post on Friday, March 8th, 2013. We will contact all winners after the announcement to coordinate getting prizes to them. If you are a winner and there is no way to reach you or if you don’t respond to us within three days after the announcement, we will consider your prize forfeited and offer it to an alternate winner. We will cover all shipping costs for the prizes if applicable, both within the US and internationally.

We hope this contest will be a fun way to share our fountain pen passion with others, and it’s a great way for us to say thanks for supporting us and what we do. Thanks everybody, and good luck!
