Tips For the New Fountain Pen User

I remember when I was new to fountain pens and I did tons of research but I had a lot of trial and error before gaining the knowledge that experience lends us. I would like to help make that a little easier for the person reading this that may be new to fountain pens. They can be intimidating, but trust me, it is all good.

I recently emailed Brian Goulet with to ask permission to use his videos entitled Fountain Pens 101. Brian took the time to make some excellent videos that take a new user step by step through all aspects of daily fountain pen use. I may be a bit biased, but Goulet Pens is a wonderful pen store. They have a great staff, solid corporate foundation and awesome customer support. I highly recommend using them for your pen needs.

Ok, let's get to it. This first video is an introduction to what the videos are going to cover and why the playlist was created. This link will take you to the Goulet Pens Fountain Pens 101 YouTube playlist where you can view them in order.


If you want to pick and choose, here is a list of each individual video: 

These videos are extremely helpful and full of wonderful information. I would like to thank Brian Goulet for allowing me to post these here as an aid to all of you. I could have done all of this here but there is no reason to reinvent the wheel when it was already done very well. 

Happy writing!
