TWSBI Eco with Stipula Sapphron

Hey there, friends! How is it already November? What a whirlwind 2017 has been for us, with the big move of our office space, some great new team member hires, and lots of exciting happenings for our team members in their lives outside the office! Did you know that November is also the anniversary of our company’s founding? The Goulet Pen Company is 8 years old!

We wouldn’t be here without all of YOU, our amazing friends and customers! As our way of giving back to you for your support, we’re excited to announce the return of Thanksgiveaway again this year for the 5th year in a row! One of our core company values we live by is “Express Gratitude.” The Thanksgiveaway idea was born out of this core value, and is a way to show our appreciation for our wonderful customers.

The contest is simple. All you have to do is write a letter to someone you are thankful for, or dream up another way to express what you are thankful for this holiday season and share it with us for your chance to be entered to win. We are so excited to be able to offer another round of great prizes this year. Also, due to the amazing outpouring of love and appreciation we received last year, we are tweaking the contest a bit this year. Read on to hear more and learn how to complete your entry.

Thanksgiveaway 2016 resulted in an extraordinarily large amount of letters being sent to our office, over 1,700 by our count. We were absolutely thrilled to receive every single one. Upon reflecting further, we couldn’t help but think it would be great to share this love out into the wider world. How great would it be to have these expressions of gratitude released into the world around each and every one of us. So this year, we are encouraging you to write to anyone in your community that also deserves a little appreciation. Think of sending your friend, parent, or teacher a letter of gratitude!

For this year’s Thanksgiveaway, you won’t have to mail your letter to us. Instead, every entry will be completed online, similar to our weekly Monday Matchup Giveaway. From now until Tuesday, November 21st, 2017 at 11:59pm EST, you can write a letter to someone you are grateful for, draw a doodle and tell us what you’re thankful for, or find a way to use your fountain pen to express your gratitude. Snap a picture of your letter with your fountain pen in the picture to share with us on as many of our 5 digital methods of entry as you’d like. Limit one entry per platform for a total of 5 possible methods of entry. We will announce the winners on our blog on Wednesday, November 22nd, 2017.

We’ve got some really exciting prizes again this year. In honor of our 8th anniversary, we’re choosing 8 winners. So what are we giving away?
