Pantone Color of the Year 2021: Ultimate Gray and Illuminating

Ultimate Gray and Illuminating are the two colors chosen for the 2021 Pantone Color of the Year. Pantone describes these two colors as "A marriage of color conveying a message of strength and hopefulness that is both enduring and uplifting." We've put together our fountain pen product picks to match these two colors in our Pantone shopping guide. What do you think of these colors? Do you already own any of these products?

Tips For Starting an Ink Journal

Hi all! Adrianne here from the Customer Relationship team. While we are working remotely I decided to start an ink journal.  I wanted to catalogue my ink collection and keep a record of the inks I used in my pens.  To branch out and use inks I’d forgotten about.

I put some music or a movie on, ink up a pen or two, and write a little to clear [...]

New Wishlist at Goulet Pens

We've been working on this for a few months now, and are so happy to announce that our new wishlist functionality at Goulet Pens is now here! While our existing wishlist worked okay, there were definitely a few recurring bugs we couldn't resolve. Some deleted items kept reappearing... the "zombie wishlist" as we liked to call it, and it didn't have the ability to break out your list into sublists. We completely switched software and our new wishlist solves these issues and more your experience better. If you had an existing wishlist on our site, we migrated it over to the new database [...]
