Fountain Pen Day 2020 Handwriting Competition

Fountain Pen Day 2020 Handwriting Competition

Did you grow up in schools with draconian penmanship standards? Did you spend hours getting your cursive just right? Have you ever been complimented on your print? Now is your time to shine. To celebrate Fountain Pen Day on November 6th, Pen Boutique is holding a handwriting competition! If you think you have good handwriting, get out your favorite fountain pen and submit a handwriting sample. We'll have prizes for best cursive, best print, best under 15, and best in show. Submissions are open until November 6th, so enter as soon as possible and show us what you can do! 

Each participant can make one entry for print and one entry for cursive. To enter, send us a handwriting sample with a 50-100 word passage of your choice, and the pen and ink you used. We'll be accepting submissions via DMs, tagged posts on Instagram, and email.

An example submission

The categories are as follows:
Best In Show (Prize: Graf Von Faber-Castell Blue Fountain Pen (worth $350!))
    This is for the best overall submission across the cursive and print categories. Whichever entry stands out the most as exemplary penmanship, either cursive or print, will be our Best In Show winner. The runner up in whichever category the Best In Show winner comes from will be considered the winner for that category.
Best Cursive (Prize: Diplomat Aero Fountain pen (worth $195))
    This category is for the best overall cursive handwriting. We'll be judging entries based on general aesthetic appeal, consistency of forms, and flow between letters. You can use any system of cursive handwriting (Spencerian, Palmer's, etc.).
Best Print (Prize: TWSBI Vac 700  IRIS fountain pen ( new one))
    This category is for the best overall print handwriting. We'll be judging entries based on general aesthetic appeal, consistency of forms, uniqueness, and legibility. 
Best 15 And Under (Prizes: 10 Platinum Prefounte fountain pens) 
    This category will be accepting both print and cursive submissions, and will have 10 winners, each of whom will receive a prize. Entries will be judged based on the criteria for the relevant category described above. When making a submission for the 15 and Under category, be sure to mention that the participant is 15 or younger so we know to consider them for this category.

Good luck and happy Fountain Pen Day!

Coming Soon: Punilabo Pen Cases

                                      Punilabo Pen Cases

Coming in soon are these adorable Punilabo Pen Cases!

There are 10 different animal options available:

Penguin, Parakeet, Boston Terrier, Calico Cat, Panda, Pig, Gray Cat, Black Cat, Shiba Inu Dog, and Brown Bear. 

These are silicone cases that are easy to cary and can easily transform into a pen cup for your desk! 
The bottom of the case pops up when you press it down on a desk, lifting the contents and making them easy to pick through.

They are also water resistant and easy to clean. 

You can use them for almost anything -- pens, pencils, cosmetics, accessories, etc up to 6.5".

We should be getting them in next week, so keep an eye out for them!
