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!

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 [...]
