A Goulet Life: Inky Splatter Acceptance

Inky splatter acceptance is an integral part of working here at the Goulet Pen Company. This video demonstrates our extensive training program and the experience that many employees may have while undergoing this training. No employees were harmed in the making of this video. The sweater and shirt are in a more colorful place.

    Note to self: Goulet Pen Company is an insane asylum masquerading as a legit business with a pretty blue logo.

  • Hahaha okay that was just what the Doctor ordered. Hilarious. I will be sure to stay tuned for more madcap adventures from Team Goulet!

    This is one of the best videos, great video guys!! Artists, poets, and now actors; something tells me that Goulet Pens is more fun than most places to work!! You should frame the shirt and sweater. This is why I check the Goulet Blog several times a day. Laughing my nibs off.

    I can't say I've reached Acceptance yet…. Then again–and I shudder in fear to say this–I have yet to get ink on my clothing. Just my hands, desk, floor….

    I remember my first inky splatter. It was on one of my favorite button down dress shirts. One that actually fit me. It was Noodler's Blue Eel from a Noodler's Ahab. A big quarter size spot, right up front. Though I went straight to stage 4 and remained there.

  • I constantly have ink stains on my hands… And I love it. It makes me feel so much more connected with the art of writing, and the history of ink and pens, and the great writers through the ages. People are sometimes shocked to see the state of my hands…. But it tends to be a great conversation starter!!

    Great video! Thanks for the laughs, and for introducing the actors on your team! I think there may be a 6th step, though. Ignoring inky fingers and hands, then going out–to eat, to church, whatever–and not even noticing the ink!

  • I Loved the Video!! AWESOMENESS!! It just shows what a great work environment there is at Goulet's & that flows through every part of the company especially customer service!! Ya'll totally ROCK!! God Bless Everyone at Goulets (including customers)!! Writing On

    That's hilarious! I'd always suspected that prolonged exposure to fountain pen ink affected the brain, and now I see it's true! 😀 Just kidding. Thanks Goulet team for having such a great sense of humor and creating vids to make us laugh.

  • David Thompson

    Funny stuff!

  • Madigan

    Haha!! Maybe all the ink is contributing to the insanity? 😛

  • Madigan

    Glad you enjoyed it Kenny!! We had a lot of fun. 🙂

  • Madigan

    There are a lot of talented and hilarious people around here! It certainly makes the days go by faster. Laughing your nibs off?!? Love it!!! 🙂

  • Madigan

    Hey Eva! The worst for me is when I go home at the end of the day and discover that not only have I had ink on my shirt, but also on my face. It always seems that pen cleaning day is also white shirt day… a lovely combination! 😛 Are you back from your travels yet? Did you find any other great pens in Germany?

  • Madigan

    Bummer, Heath! Maybe you should take a cue from Luke and just splatter the rest of it? 😛

  • Madigan

    I love it Kathy!! I'm not sure I've even reached that stage yet! I get self conscious in yoga if I've had a particularly inky day. 🙂

  • Madigan

    Thanks Otter! You may be on to something with ink exposure… 😛 We have a lot of fun around here and it's great to share it with you all!

  • Madigan

    Thanks David!

    Hi, Madigan! I fully expect I will have ink on my face one day! LOL!
    Yes, we're back home in NYC! I only got a chance to visit a small number of stores that might have fountain pens and found that LAMY appears to dominate the market. I had expected (and was looking for) Faber-Castell and Kaweco, and I didn't see them. But, then again, we did not have too much time for shopping, as it turned out. It was fantastic to stumble across a wonderful stationery story–McPaper–and find the LAMY's and a great display of other fountain pens and cartridges, oddly enough no F-C's or Kawecos.
