But first, a little introduction to our community's special holiday.

What is fountain pen day?

Created by pen enthusiast Cary Yeager, "Fountain Pen Day" is celebrated on the first Friday in November as a worldwide community appreciation for the hobby of using and collecting fountain pens. The idea is to embrace, promote, and share the use of fountain pens.

How do you celebrate fountain pen day?

As a pen enthusiast, this is your special day to make a lot of noise about your love of fountain pens. We ink-courage all of you to fly your "fountain pen flags" high and proud. On Fountain Pen Day, take your pens with you wherever you go. Show them off in a public display of pen-thusiasm. Indulge an onlooker's curiosity by letting them hold your pen and write with it (if you feel comfortable with that, of course). Here are some more ideas on how you can celebrate FPD:

  • Share your pen collection on social media and tag #fountainpenday & #fountainpenday2021
  • Instead of texting someone back, handwrite them a note and send a pic of the note as a reply.
  • Take some time to journal for 10 to 30 minutes.
  • Write all of your to-do's and appointments in a rainbow of fountain pen ink colors.
  • Watch a few Goldspot Pens Quick Tip videos to brush up on your pen knowledge.
  • Join a meetup, either virtual or in person, with other fountain pen enthusiasts.
  • Do a live broadcast of you writing with your fountain pens on social media.
  • Doodle with a fountain pen during a meeting or class.
  • Write a letter to a friend, loved one, family member, or yourself!
  • Listen to a pen-related podcast on your commute.
  • And, of course, you can buy yourself a new pen, ink or notebook while taking advantage of special offers and discounts that pen retailers (like Goldspot Pens) will promote for the holiday.

Below, you'll find all the new releases, exclusives, and discounts as they are announced during the week leading up to Fountain Pen Day.

A Fountain Pen Day Exclusive Pen Drop

On Friday, November 5th, we have several new pen releases to announce, including new Goldspot-exclusive fountain pens you won't find anywhere else!

Sailor Professional Gear Blue Cobra

This Fountain Pen Day, you can "sign and drive" the Goldspot Pens exclusive Sailor Professional Gear Blue Cobra fountain pen. Inspired by the vintage styling of high-performance cars, the pearlescent bright blue of the pen's body and cap are "striped" with pure white resin finials and trimmed in rhodium silver appointments.

The Sailor Pro Gear is available in two sizes. The "Slim" is a great fit for both men and women and those that prefer a thinner, more pocket-friendly pen. The "Regular" size will be more comfortable for larger hands and is fitted with a larger, 21kt gold nib. All Sailor Pro Gear pens include a Sailor proprietary ink cartridge and converter as well as a limited 1-year warranty.

Catch a ride with Blue Cobra before it speeds off and leaves you in the dust.

Esterbrook Estie Sunflower

Experience pure joy with the warmth and vibrance of the Esterbrook Estie in Sunflower marbled acrylic. This pen is like a ray of sunshine that glows with chatoyance in the light. This seasonal Estie is here for the harvest and won't be around for long.

Select your choice of writing mode with two options of fountain pen sizes, a rollerball, and twist-action ballpoint pen mode. Both the standard and "oversized' Estie fountain pens are fitted with a no. 6 stainless steel nib produced by Jowo (Germany) and fill by international ink cartridges or converter (both included with the pen). The capped rollerball writes with a G2 standard rollerball cartridge. The ballpoint has a retractable Parker-style ballpoint ink cartridge installed.

Visconti Rembrandt Blue Red Night

Create your masterpiece with the inspired design of the Visconti Rembrandt fountain pen. Drawing upon the Dutch master painter's chiaroscuro technique, the swirling body and cap of the pen look like they were painted. The "Blue Red Night" is a Goldspot-exclusive palette of colors, including red, blue, green, and wisps of white.

This is an extremely limited run of 20 pens total in this exclusive material. The pens are finished with gold vermeil trims, grip section, and Visconti bridge clip. Choose between fine or medium nib sizes in stainless steel. A converter is included to fill up with your choice of bottled ink.
