So, you have come to the point in your fountain pen journey where it is time to start selling or giving away some of your pens. Maybe the nib was not the right softness or it was too broad. Maybe the color was not what you expected. Maybe it just turned out the section is too thin for your hand. Maybe you are not selling or giving away a pen but sending it off to be worked on by a nib meister. You can try selling or giving away your unused pens on the internet. Whether it be on eBay, Etsy, a fountain pen forum or social media, there are a few things you need to do to become a trusted seller/giver and shipper.

Happy Fountain Pen Day! For those who do not know, Fountain Pen Day is always the first Friday in November. To help celebrate I am going to be giving away A Galen Leather No. 55 Field Notes cover in navy blue. My review should be posted next week. All you have to do is leave a comment on this post here at inktronicsblog.com and you will be entered for a random drawing that will take place on on November 11th.
Here is a picture of the actual Galen Leather Field Notes cover that will be given away on November 11th. This is open to anyone worldwide as long as you leave a comment. Please note that I cannot be responsible for any taxes or customs fees that may or may not be assessed by your country.
All care packages have been claimed! Thank you again!
It has been a great year and now it is coming to a close. I want to thank everyone for all the support throughout the year.
To show my thanks, I will be giving away 5 care packages. They will be filled with review items or swag I picked up along the way. If it is a review notebook, the back page is usually my testing page. Other than that, the items are new and still perfectly usable. I can’t say exactly what will be in your package but I hope you like it.
The first 5 people to send me their mailing address via the contact form below will be chosen. The giveaway will be closed after I get the 5 names.
Thank you again for a fantastic 2013 and here’s to an even better 2014!
If you are near the Houston, Texas area tonight, make sure to visit Dromgoole’s Faber Castell Pen Event. 🙂 ( Yes, I do think it is a little ironic that a pen event has pencils in the invite graphic. 😀 )
I just received my Levenger catalog today and saw this Montagrappa. Really liking the black furniture version but the rose gold version is also good looking. Not the usual over the top styling I have come to associate with Montegrappa. Picture of Levenger’s web page for the pen.
Looks like WordPress staff have fixed the old theme so I reverted to it. It seemed the twitter widget was having issues with the new theme. Like this theme or the previous theme? Don’t care? Suggest a theme? Use the comments and let me know. 🙂
Thanks Bogon. Here is what the new theme looked like:
