There are lots of reasons to celebrate this November! The Goulet Pen Company is approaching its 6th anniversary and we wouldn’t be here without YOU! Each of you allow us to do what we love and enjoy every day, and for that we are thankful. To say thank you, we’re launching our own version of Thanksgiving, called Thanksgiveaway. It’s a time to thank, honor and celebrate you, our awesome customers!

Here’s how we’ll be celebrating our third annual Thanksgiveaway:

1. Surprise Gift With One Order Each Day

We are giving away a free surprise gift in one randomly selected order placed on, every day throughout the month of November. We’re giving away products like package sets, bottles of ink, and fountain pens. Place an order on any day during the month of November, and you could be randomly selected as our daily winner. If you see a gift wrapped in “Goulet Blue” when you open your package, you’ll know you’re a winner. :)

2. Write-in contest

We are also giving away one Visconti Homo Sapiens fountain pen valued at $695! We’ll then randomly select two runner-up winners who will receive the no-longer-made Monteverde Invincia Deluxe Nighthawk fountain pen. Also, Lamy USA has provided 5 additional runner up prizes for us to give
away! We’ll randomly choose these winners from the letters we receive
as well, and each winner will receive both a Lamy Al-Star and Filofax A5 notebook.

The no longer produced Monteverde Nighthawk


5 runner up winners will receive a Lamy Al-Star and Filfofax A5 notebook

Want to enter? Simply mail us your handwritten submission, telling us what you’re thankful for. This is your chance to get creative! You could send us a poem, a letter, your best art, or lettering. Just be sure to use your favorite fountain pens and ink.

We’ll be selecting three winners chosen at random from all entries submitted. If you are the first winner of the Visconti Homo Sapiens, you’ll be able to select your pen and nib size and we’ll ship it to you for free, anywhere that USPS ships in the world. Runner-up winners will be sent the pre-selected nib sizes of the Monteverde Invincia Deluxe Nighthawk. We’ll announce winners on our blog and contact each winner directly in early December.

Ready to enter? Mail your contest entry to us here:

The Goulet Pen Company
ATTN: Thanksgiveaway
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. If you have any questions, feel free to email us at and we’d be glad to help.

3. Don’t shop with us? No problem!

You can still participate in Thanksgiveaway! Simple send a separate letter saying “Please enter me for the Surprise Gift Contest” with “Attn: Surprise Gift Contest” on your envelope. One entry per person is allowed, so you’ll need to send two separate letters to enter both the Thanksgiveaway contest and the Surprise gift contest.

Again, thank you for being awesome! Celebrate with us, and have a happy Thanksgiveaway!

Write on,
The Goulet Pen Company Team

Here are the fine print rules for Thanksgiveaway: 

All entries for both ThanksGiveaway contests must be received by November 30, 2015 at 11:59pm EST. 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. Please limit one entry per person for the write in contest.

No purchase is required to participate in either of these contests. All customers who place orders through 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 Visconti Homo Sapiens/Monteverde Nighthawk entries, and you will need to mail in two separate letters if you wish to enter both the Surprise Gifts contest and Visconti Homo Sapiens/Monteverde Nighthawk contest. Odds of winning will depend on the number of entries received, estimated to be 1/300.
