Another year has come and gone and we’ve reached one of our favorite times of year around the Goulet Pens office: Thanksgiveaway! November marks the anniversary of the Goulet Pen Company founding. It was 9 years ago that Brian and Rachel made the choice to move away from hand-turned wood pens and focus on selling pens and accessories to fill a need in the fountain pen community. You can hear the story in their own words here. As the company has grown and changed, one thing has remained the same: the love and support of you, our wonderful friends in the community. One of the core values of the Goulet Pen Company is Express Gratitude. In keeping with that spirit, each year, we offer this giveaway as an opportunity to express our gratitude for our amazing fountain pen community.

Over the 5 past years we’ve hosted Thanksgiveaway, it’s seen some changes but the spirit continues to be an effort to encourage the sharing and expression of gratitude. The concept is simple, all you have to do is write a letter or expression of gratitude to someone you are thankful for and share it with us to be entered. You can find some helpful suggestions of people in your community to write to on our blog. In an effort to make it accessible to all of the community, we will be hosting the giveaway completely online again this year. Read on to hear about how to enter and to learn what the prizes will be.

Rather than mailing a physical letter to us, you will complete your entry by snapping a picture of your handwritten letter and posting it on the social media channel(s) of your choice. You can see the specific entry rules per platform below. You can enter on as many or as few channels as you please, including our Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and our Blog.

  • There are four possible ways to enter each week. If you choose to take a picture of your envelope instead of your letter, please be sure to obscure any address details.
  • The contest will run from now until November 19th, 2018 at 8am ET and weekly $150 store credit winners will be chosen at 8am ET on November 5th, 12th, and 19th, so be sure your submission is in before then.
  • One final winner of a Visconti Homo Sapiens prize package will be chosen on November 20th at 8am. All winners will be announced here on this blog on on our social media channels.
  • Winners are only eligible for one win during the duration of the contest. Please limit your entries to one per platform per week of the contest. You can repeat your entries each week if you choose, but only one entry per platform per week will be counted from you.


If you’ve got any questions about this year’s Thanksgiveaway contest, simply send us an email at and we’d be happy to help! You can find our official contest rules here. We hope you’ll join us in expressing gratitude this month!

Who will you be writing to this year?

Have a happy Thanksgiveaway!
