This summer, Phoebe helped by doing a little bit of everything around the Goldspot Pens office - assembling pens, packing orders, taking photos, writing articles, and posting on social media. In her short tenure as an intern, she grew to enjoy the various types of writing instruments and even picked out a favorite that we are sending with her to college. Find out which pen she picked below.
In developing this school supply list, we made our suggestions based on three criteria:
Regardless of whether you're shopping for middle school or college school supplies, these writing essentials are great for all ages. Even if you're already out of school and working, you can still enjoy the benefits of these excellent writing tools and accessories.

Now, you didn't think we would put together a complete back to school supply list and not include any fountain pens, did you? Since most US schools do not focus on penmanship in their curriculum, it is likely that today's students never get a chance to write with a fountain pen. It's a shame because they are missing out on one of the most pleasurable, personal writing experiences that will make note-taking and essay writing infinitely more enjoyable.
