Well-Made Product; Excellent Customer Service

The Galen Zippered A5 Notebook is well made and designed. I am very happy with the color of the Crazy Horse Smoky grey. The leather is definitely 'pre-scuffed' so I need not worry about scratches I might add � it will simply enhance the character of the leather. While I had some issues with my order, I'd particularly like to thank Jessica at Goulet, who kindly worked with me to find mutually agreeable resolution. Jessica and Goulet Pens set a very high bar for excellent customer service! I look forward to continuing to be a happy customer! Thank you so much!

Amazing EDC

This is better than I expected, I love everything about it, you start for a great packaging made with quality in every detail. Product is absolutely well made, great construction, quality is awesome, this is better than I expected. Not I can carry all my stuff in a simple package without a backpack, in it fits all: A5 Hard Cover Notebook, Kindle Paperwhite 6.8', 5 Fountain Pens, 1 Mechanical Pen, I Love get all together.

Nice Folio

This folio is great for me it fits a Leuchtturm 1917 and 6 pens, I usually carry 4. There is a bit of bulge from the pens, you can see in the pictures.

Beautiful and sturdy, but not for thick notebooks.

This folio is almost perfect for me. I went with the grey, which is a nice neutral color and not overly girly or masculine. It smells of amazing quality leather and the pen loops are perfect for my large and small pens with only my Lamy CP1 Falling out. My only con is that I can't fit a hardcover notebook along with any pens. I use an A5 notebook with 160 gsm paper and it barely zips with the journal and pens (it's a literal stretch but doesn't feel like it will break anything). A hobonichi cousin would be a tight fit but the 6-month version fits fine. I'm definitely going to be adapting my bullet journal to the folio since it's too nice and convenient not to use!

Great folio but leather gets scuffed very easily.

In the short amount of time that I've been using this it has developed some unsightly scuffs in the leather. Its scratches very easily just from being thrown on the passenger seat of my car or my travel bag when on the go. Aesthetics aside it is very functional.

FAQs about Pen Storage

What’s the best way to store an inked fountain pen? 8EDA1617-F73A-4DAF-8245-6D2BF4ABEB7B

There is no right or wrong way, but a lot of people find that storing them nib up is good if your pen tends to run wet, or nib down if your pen is more dry writing.

Horizontal is never a bad way to store your pens either, and is what the majority of the Goulet Pens team does.

Here's a video on pen storage options:

Help! My pen leaks when it’s in my purse/bag/pocket! 8EDA1617-F73A-4DAF-8245-6D2BF4ABEB7B

As fountain pen ink is water based, and fountain pens are basically a controlled leak, any type of jostling motion can cause the fountain pen ink to leak out. We recommend you do not carry them loose in anything where they could get jostled and cause the ink to leak out.
