Seriously, how sweet is this video? We're super proud of our videographer Jenni for putting this all together, though it was a team effort that involved about a dozen of us altogether. Share some love down in the comments :)
This November, we're celebrating you. We are so thankful for your support over the last five years. Seriously. You have helped us to create dozens of new jobs, you have helped to spread the fountain pen love and education throughout the world, and we've been amazed by what you've been able to create with your tools. We love what we do, and we are so thankful for you.
We want to show you how much we appreciate you. So that's why we're celebrating ThanksGiveaway in two big ways!
1. Surprise Gifts with Orders
We are giving away a free surprise gift in one randomly selected order placed on GouletPens.com, every day throughout the month of November. And these are pretty good things too — it could be anything from a bottle of ink or a notebook to a fountain pen. All you have to do is place an order on GouletPens.com and you could be selected as the daily winner! You'll know you've won when you open up your package. :)
2. Omas Ogiva Alba Write-In Contest
We are also giving away one Omas Ogiva Alba limited edition fountain pen (valued at $495). To enter, you will mail us your handwritten submission, telling us what you're thankful for. It could be a letter, a poem, calligraphy, artwork — really anything as long as you use fountain pens, ink, and paper.
We'll be selecting one winner chosen at random from all entries submitted. If you are the winner, you'll be able to select your pen color and nib size and we'll ship it to you for free, anywhere that USPS ships in the world. Winners will be contacted in early December and announced on our blog.
Mail your contest entry to:
The Goulet Pen Company
10201 Maple Leaf Court
Ashland, VA 23005 USA
Please be sure to include your full name and email in your submission so we can get in touch with you if you're a winner.
Alright, now for all the fine print logistical mumbo jumbo:
All entries for both ThanksGiveaway contests must be received by November 30, 2014 at 11:59pm EDT. By participating in either ThanksGiveaway contest, you are giving us permission to share your name and images of your mailed-in submission on social media (your address and email will not be shared). Entries will not be returned to you and will become the property of The Goulet Pen Company, LLC.
No purchase is required to participate in either of these contests. All customers who place orders through GouletPens.com in the month of November will be entered for the Surprise Gifts automatically. Alternatively you can write in a letter and mail or deliver it to The Goulet Pen Company LLC, ATTN: Surprise Gift Contest, 10201 Maple Leaf Ct, Ashland, VA 23005 with your full name, email address, and the words “Please enter me for the Surprise Gift Contest” included in your letter. Only one entry per person will be allowed for the write-in Surprise Gift Contest. These entries will be kept separate from the Omas Ogiva Alba entries, and you will need to mail in two separate letters if you wish to enter both the Surprise Gifts contest and Omas Ogiva Alba contest. Odds of winning will depend on the number of entries received, estimated to be 1/300.
If you have any questions, please feel free to email us at email@example.com.
Again, we thank you!
Brian & Rachel Goulet, and Team Goulet
