It's hard to believe that it's already time to start thinking about heading back-to-school! Students may be soaking in every last moment of Summer, but if you're a teacher or professor, chances are you're already preparing for the upcoming semester.
This time of year often symbolizes a fresh start! It's a new year, with different students and new things to learn. As you prepare to head back to the classroom, our team at Gouletpens.com has selected several pen, ink and paper recommendations to help get your school year started on the right foot!
We had some of our own product recommendations in mind, but we also asked for input on our Facebook page. Many of these recommendations come from teachers and professors themselves, who use these everyday in the classroom and office!

- Many teachers suggested using the Vanishing Point and its retractable nib to make grading more efficient and enjoyable!
- Lamy Safari or Al-Star, $30-$38
- This fountain pen has swappable nibs making it versatile as you prepare multiple lessons and lectures.
