As I was writing my Fountain Pen Day 2019 Giveaways article, I kept thinking that I should do some sort of giveaway as well. The problem was, I wasn’t sure what to give away. It wasn’t until this morning that it finally hit me. Paper samples!
First things first, here’s the link to my Instagram post where you can enter.
As some of you may know, I sell paper sample packs in my shop. One is a big, pre-made sample pack of various fountain pen friendly papers. The other is a custom paper sample pack that you can build yourself.
For this sample pack, I’m including a sheet of every paper that’s available in the sample packs I create, plus a few that aren’t (yet)! That means a total of 28 different paper samples! You’ll receive one sheet of each paper, as opposed to two or three sheets in the regular sample packs, but that’s still enough to test and get a feel for each paper.
I’ve written the number for each paper on the bottom-left corner of each paper with pencil. This will help you identify what type of paper each sheet is. You’ll also receive a key to help you match the numbers with the paper type.
For Fountain Pen Day 2019, I’m changing things up and only allowing entries via Instagram. I know that there are some people out there who don’t use Instagram, and to those people I’m sorry. I’ll have another giveaway coming up soon (my biggest yet) that you’ll be able to participate in!
You might be wondering which papers are included in the sample pack. Here’s a list. Remember, you’ll receive one sheet of each:

One Final Question
I’ll leave you with one final question. Would there be any interest in a sample pack like this being a regular item in my shop? As I said, the current sample packs include two or three sheets of each paper sample, but fewer paper types. This includes more paper types but only one sheet of each. Let me know in the comments if you think one sheet of each is enough or if you’d prefer more than one sheet.
