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 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!





  • Pilot Varsity Fountain Pen, $3.25-$21
    • Many teachers shared with us that they keep Pilot Varsity fountain pens in the classroom and encourage students to give them a try. They’re a great, low-investment way to spread the love of fountain pens!



Red is the classic color to grade with, and we’ve got some great red ink recommendations for you. But if you’re looking to grade tests and papers in another color, we suggest giving one of these a try! An ink sample is always a great way to test inks before committing to a whole bottle.





Even though we’re living in the digital age, it’s always helpful to have a notebook on hand!

    • This product was recommended as a great notebook for your “to-do” lists. Its size also makes it convenient to take with you to faculty or departmental meetings.


  • Leuchtturm1917 medium notebook, $19.50
    • The table of contents at the beginning of this notebook make it helpful when writing notes/lectures and a safe place for keeping your math, history or Spanish lesson ideas on paper.
We’re very thankful for all that teachers and professors do and we wish you a great school year ahead! We know that many of you will need to consume numerous cups of coffee this year as you face long days ahead. So, what better way to consume your caffeine than with a new Goulet coffee mug? :)

If you’re heading to college or graduate school this semester, you can find our recommendations here. For our middle and high schoolers, check out our recommendations here.
