Win a Waterman Pen From


The promotional pens maker sent over a really nice pen from Waterman, one of the best pen makers in the world. This pen retails for $80 and comes in a nice presentation box.

I tested it out by using the pen to sign a few checks and it writes really well. I can see using the pen to sign important documents and contracts. However, I can also see giving the pen away to a deserving reader.

How To Enter

If you would like a shot at winning a fine writing pen, then just make a blog post about it. Please say the pen came from and it’ll be nice if you can link to them using promotional pens or something along that line. Here’s a sample post:

    John, are you ever going to start accepting Twittering as a form of entering? Writing a post just for this might be out of the question for some people, but it would fit perfectly for Twitter. Do I win for idea of the day? πŸ˜€

        I’m planning to do a Tumblr text post and then just post a comment with the URL.

          If I didn’t restrict my Tumblr posts to one liners, I’d probably do the same. πŸ˜‰

    At first, I thought it said I could win a watermelon pen. That’s what got my attention. It’s a nice pen, but I was expecting something a little different.

  5. Hey the pen sure looks nice. The contest looks cool too. Is there a guarantee that all who join will win something else, if not the pen ?? maybe a pencil ?? πŸ™„

    Here is my entry: Naked Sultry Links. I combined it with other stuff, because I try to keep my posts in the 200+ word range. Not terribly hard, mind you, but I do try for some amount of substance, last weekend’s single word post notwithstanding.

  10. I wish my blog was relevant enough to give it a shot. BTW, can we use more than 1 blogs for the entry? Just curious….

    1. John Chow says:

      Use as many blogs as you want.

  11. Mike Huang says:

    Tempting, but not tempted to continue on.

    $80 pen? 😯

    1. Neil Duckett says:

      I’m confused too.

    2. Simon Lau says:

      If you think that’s expensive, check out Mont Blanc pens! Which you can make cheaper version of using their refillable inkpacks and hacking up an old Pilot G2:
