Within a matter of weeks, the “workshop”–a covered balcony–picked up its first corporate order. Brian devoted nights and weekends to making pens until making it a full-time career in 2008. Today, the Goulet Pen Company offers writing instruments, ink, paper goods, and parts and accessories. @gouletpens makes its merchandise available for purchase to 34.1K followers on Instagram through Have2Have.it.
