Monday Matchup #45: Sheaffer 300 Gloss Blue with Chrome Trim in Fine with J. Herbin 1670 Bleu Ocean

Elephants never have to worry about misplacing car keys or dropping the ball on anniversaries and birthdays. They never forget. And we’re betting you won’t soon forget the approaching pachyderm penned by Caitlin from our Customer Care team.

With a Sheaffer 300 Gloss Blue with Chrome Trim in Fine and J. Herbin 1670 Bleu Ocean Anniversary Ink, Caitlin achieves spot-on shades of blue and golden sheen. The quote from Khalil Gibran, a poet and artist, reminds us to press on and persevere no matter the beat we’re marching to.

As for those missing car keys, well, why don’t you check the the trunk…

The Sheaffer 300 Gloss Blue with Chrome Trim in Fine is available at for $80. J. Herbin 1670 Bleu Ocean Anniversary Ink is available in a 50ml bottle for $26 and as a 2ml ink sample for $1.75.

    Another winner! I love this ink, and the pen is great, too. I'm using the ink in a Safari with a 1.5 nib. Beautiful! Keep 'em coming!

  • Donna Marie

    One of my favorite pens! Writes like a dream! Now I have to get some ink!

  • Wooow, that elephant! Soooo pretty!

    I've found that I prefer Stormy Grey to Bleu Ocean. I have trouble making the sparkles appear and yet I'm using a flex nib (that I do flex) on Clairefontaine paper 🙁

  • Otter

    Gorgeous drawing! I bought some Bleu Ocean too, so looking forward to seeing how it glitters for myself. 🙂

  • Madigan

    Hey Kathy! Glad you enjoyed it. Caitlin's elephant is beautiful!! 🙂

  • Madigan

    Hey Donna! Glad to hear you love the pen. I know Catilin had a good time working with it. 🙂

  • Madigan

    Hey Amaryllis! Bleu Ocean is a bit more subtle in its sparkle. Make sure you are shaking your ink before filling the pen and rolling the pen between your hands before writing. That usually helps bring out the sparkle. 🙂

  • Madigan

    Hi Otter! I'm sure you will enjoy it. 🙂

    This Elephant is amazing. You guys at Goulet Pens are amazing artists. Love the Bleu Ocean. That being said I know you are trying to sell the new ink (and doing a really good job) but not to distract from the wonderful art above I suspect the elephant using Stormy Grey would also be really cool.

    Since a number of animals have been done you should collect them all as a Goulet Menagerie and display them all.

  • That's exactly what I do and I do see a few sparkles, but you're right, it's more subtle than Stormy Grey.

    You should make limited edition greeting cards from your wonderful drawings!

    I never miss the Monday Matchup, and this is just wonderful. I sit back, relax, and enjoy the artwork and photographs. Great work Caitlin! Really starts the week off right.
