Fountain pen friends, our holiday is fast approaching. The first Friday in November celebrates Fountain Pen Day.
Before I tell you about ways to celebrate the day with Atlas, let me run down a short history of the holiday.
The first year Fountain Pen Day was celebrated was 2012. According to the Fountain Pen Day website, www.fountainpenday.com, 49 vendors and approximately 600 people participated that year. The event was created to “help embrace, promote, and share the use of fountain pens in day-to-day life as well to help revive handwriting as a whole.”
Since 2012, the event has continued to grow. You can see the volumes of vendors, swag, and other resources that are displayed on the Fountain Pen Day website.
HOW TO CELEBRATE
Atlas has been a supporting vendor of Fountain Pen Day since 2019. There are lots of ways to join in the celebration. From checking out our YouTube channel videos ( Atlas Stationers Youtube Channel ), to joining a group taking part in a meeting, to taking part in our in-store or online activities.
Keep tabs on what we have planned by watching our social media outlets, primarily Instagram, and be sure to include us in whatever Fountain Pen Day fun you get into. Use the hashtag, #fountainpenday2021, on your social media accounts and tag us @atlasstationers. Whether that means getting a new pen, using a new ink, or just celebrating the everyday joy of utilizing your personal collection.
Check in with us as we count down the days to November 5th, 2021. We, like you, will be sharing our love for all things fountain pens.
