Retailer Spotlight: Goulet Pen Company

Stephanie

For this month’s retailer spotlight position, I’d like to welcome Goulet Pens – a relative newcomer to the Exaclair family who not only sells his own hand crafted pens, but also a splendid selection of Rhodia, Clairefontaine, Quo Vadis, G Lalo & J. Herbin products. And speaking of family newcomers, I’d also like to welcome Brian & Rachel’s new baby, Joseph Brian Goulet, born 8:08pm Monday January 25th. A strong, healthy boy at 8lb 2oz, 21″! Congratulations guys!

The Goulet Pen Company began as a hobby in 2007, when Brian Goulet’s lifelong interest in woodworking led him to purchase a small lathe and try pen turning on a whim. From the very first day, his wife Rachel saw the passion and the ability that Brian possessed for these humble instruments and Goulet Pens quickly became a hit with friends and family. Despite the fact they were living in an apartment and working on a covered balcony, they picked up their first corporate order and thus the hobby turned into a business in a matter of weeks. Brian made his pens on nights and weekends until August of 2008, when he decided to devote his career to pen turning.

The Goulet Pen Company was founded on passion, fine craftsmanship, and unique and customizable products.

To further express his passion for ink, pens and paper, Brian has started a video blog called Ink Nouveau where he has been doing various on camera reviews and comparisons on products such as Clairefontaine Triomphe paper, Quo Vadis Habanas & more.  Be sure to check it out!

  5. Yeah, you might notice the shop in my pictures for ‘How a Pen Is Made” is different than the one on Ink Nouveau. The Ink Nouveau shop is my current one, I have yet to update my “How a Pen Is Made”! To my defense, my newborn son hasn’t exactly freed up a lot of time for me ;) He’s well worth it, but not a great workshop helper (yet!).

  7. This is fast becoming one of my favorite companies. Brian’s service is incredible, his prices hard to beat, and his cheerful appreciation of our paper/pen/ink obsession comforting in a world of faceless companies. If you haven’t bought here, check them out. Awesome range of products and he’s excellent about special orders if you don’t see what you want.
