The 5th annual Fountain Pen Day is just a week away! Fountain Pen Day takes place on the first Friday of November each year, falling this year on November 4, 2016. The first celebration was held back in 2012, and it’s only grown in momentum and participation ever since. According to the Fountain Pen Day website, the intention is “to help embrace, promote, and share the use of fountain
pens in day-to-day life, as well to help revive handwriting as a whole.” That’s definitely something all of us at Goulet Pens can get behind!
How will you be preparing to celebrate Fountain Pen Day next Friday, November 4th? Here are some ideas to help you get ready:
- Have a pen cleaning party to get your fountain pen collection ready to be inked and used.
- Spread the fountain pen love by letting a coworker or friend try out one of your fountain pens for the first time.
- Spend some time writing handwritten notes to mail out next Friday. Need some ideas of who to write to? We’d bet your grandmother, childhood best friend, or favorite teacher would love hearing from you.
- Jump into the conversations happening with the online fountain pen community. Check out different pages and groups on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram. You could also share blogs or videos to spread the joy of writing with a fountain pen.
To help you celebrate Fountain Pen Day, we’ve decided to give away 4 Lamy Safari Red gift sets! Each set comes with a Lamy Safari fountain pen with a fine nib, a Z24 converter, a pack of cartridges and a bottle of red ink. It’s the perfect way to get started using fountain pens!
This contest will be open Friday October 28, 2016 until Thursday November 3, 2016 at 11:59pm EDT. We’ll then randomly select 4 winners and will announce each of them on Friday November 4th (Fountain Pen Day!) here on the blog and across our social media channels.

So tell us – how will you be celebrating Fountain Pen Day?
