GouletPens.com will be down today for physical inventory

**Our site’s back up! Thanks for being so patient, we went live again after about 8 hours, around 4pm Eastern time. 

We’re sorry to say, but GouletPens.com will be completely down and offline today for our quarterly physical inventory and product restructuring due to our Lamy, Pilot, and Monteverde nib changeover we mentioned a few weeks back in this blog post.

We’re going to be shutting down the site around 8am Eastern US time, and it will have to remain down until we complete everything, which we’re hoping will only take until 2pm Eastern but may end up going until 5pm Eastern. We’re sorry that we’re not able to leave the non-purchasing aspects of our site up for you to browse while we do all our stuff behind the scenes, but alas, our site doesn’t give us this capability and we have to shut it down completely in order to do what we need to do.

All orders placed before we shut down the site will be processed and shipped as usual, but we won’t be able to accept any orders by web or by phone until our site goes back up. It’ll be all hand on deck for us here while we’re counting up every single item in our warehouse, so we won’t be able to take phone calls until after we’ve finished (we can’t take phone orders while our site is down anyway).

Thanks so much for being patient. In the meantime, cruise Ink Nouveau here, check out some vids on our YouTube channel, see what we’ve been up to on Instagram, Twitter, Pinterest, and Facebook. We’ll be back up soon!

Write On,
Brian Goulet

    Here's something to look at in the meantime… a very nice example i noticed on the difference the paper can make on the appearance of the ink/pen on the paper. This is by far the most extreme example I found in my paper drawer. Its clairfontaine vs some older inkjet paper. Very ink resistant vs very ink absorbent.

    This is a great comparison! When I hear reviewers say a pen/ink or combination is too dry (or too wet), I want to know what paper they used. Also how hard they press down with the nib. Nice photo too.

  • Wow, that is a very extreme example, Alexander! And so very true, paper makes SUCH a huge difference, yet it so often overlooked. I bet if you flip your inkjet paper over it looks like bleed through city, too!

  • Alexander Faust

    Actually no, it doesn't bleed through at all. This is a two layered paper. Only the front is absorbent as hell, the back paper is pretty ink resistant. If you fold it over the back doesn't nearly accept that much ink. So you can see it shine through a bit from the back but not very much.

  • Woah, crazy!

    If i ever have to return something to you i'll make sure to include a few sheets of it if there is something left by then so you can inspect the paper šŸ™‚
