Fountain Pen Day Giveaway
Started in 2012 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, Fountain Pen Day has grown into a worldwide celebration on the first Friday in November.
So, just what does one do on Fountain Pen Day? Well, if you’re already addicted to fountain pens like we are, it’s assumed that you will be writing with a fountain pen at some point during the day. To go above and beyond, we suggest going to a meetup, exploring a new pen & ink pairing, and sharing your love of writing with others.
Being a pen & stationery enthusiast can feel isolating in a culture that favors rapid digital communication. There’s plenty to be learned, appreciated, and shared when a group of fountain pen addicts gets together to geek out over pens and ink. Grab a case full of your inked pens and head out to a meetup (or host one) to celebrate FPD with pen pals.
Attending a pen show is not only a fun way to meet up with like-minded appreciators of fine writing instruments, but it’s also the best way to expand your horizons by browsing massive pen collections that include modern and vintage pens from manufacturers all over the world. If you’re in the area, the Ohio Pen Show is being held during Fountain Pen Day weekend with over 150 exhibitor tables.
A number of pen clubs and meetups are also going on around the world. The official Fountain Pen Day meetup is being held in New York City. Sponsored by Kenro Industries (distributors of Aurora and Montegrappa), the event is open to all pen enthusiasts in the metro area.
You can also find a local group that may be meeting on November 3rd. If one isn’t going on in your area, you could always post your interest in an online pen forum to see if you can connect to others in your area for a friendly meetup at a public location. A coffee shop or library tend to be ideal locations, but you should call ahead to make sure it would be permissible for you to meet there.
Regardless if you’re meeting up or not, you can always post your pens and write on social media with the hashtag #Fountainpenday2017 to join the global conversation.
ENJOY a new pen and ink!
Pen addicts hardly need an excuse to buy a new fountain pen or ink. Whether you’re celebrating a promotion, passing a significant personal milestone, achieving an ambitious goal, need retail therapy after a rough week, or celebrating a birthday early, there’s always a good reason to treat yourself to great stationery.
Fountain Pen Day presents a perfect excuse to explore a new pen and ink pairing. A big part of the enjoyment in writing with fountain pens is the variety of nib sizes, pen styles, and ink colors you can explore to put your own unique flair on your signature handwriting.
