This week, Goldspot Pens has launched a brand new help section that features interactive question and answer searches that enable you to get quick answers about pens, pen care, store policies and shipping times. You may also ask our customer service a question directly about your order or if your question was not already answered by our knolwedgebase.

Pocket Blonde is the next host of the Carnival of Pen, Pencil and Paper, which will be posted Tuesday, March 9th. If you have an article or blog post you would like to submit, use this form.
Fresh off the (word) presses, Brian from Edison Pen Co wrote a great article In Praise of Steel Nibs. I always find myself having the same discussion on a weekly basis as well, "should I spend the extra money for a gold nib on my fountain pen?"

Lastly, I would like to remind our readers that we are running our "Great, BIG Weekend Sale" until Sunday night at 11:59pm Eastern Standard Time.

And don't forget the free standard shipping within the US for orders of $99 or more. Check out our Weekend Sale Flyer for more deals.
