As I said earlier today, there will be a special offer for Fountain Pen Day 2020, and to celebrate the launch of this website.
3 slots for fountain pen repairs will be given out to 3 lucky winners! Subject to conditions of course.
This means that I will select 3 lucky winners for a chance to send me your fountain pen for a repair, or a nib regrind, or something else.
Rather than limit this to the UK and Europe due to postal costs, I’ve decided to keep it open world wide, but the lucky winner will be fully responsible for postage. I’ll take care of the pens.
So how do you enter? Nothing special. It’s the stuff the internet is now used to:
1: Like and follow my Facebook Page: The Pen Doctor, and like the promo post.
2: Follow my Instagram ThePenDoctorUK and like the Promo post.
3: Comment on this post to say you’ve done the above.
I will make a list of entries from the comments on this post, and will then choose 3 random winners. After that, I will get in touch to confirm you’ve done all the above within promo time.
Q: What do I win?
A: You get to choose from one of the following 3 prizes:
1: Repair/service of a vintage fountain pen’s filling system. Applies to sac fillers and vintage cork piston fillers. Excludes specific pens.
2: Nib repair: misaligned, scratchy, too dry, too wet, or bent nibs. Excludes cracked nibs and ones requiring retipping.
3: Nib regrind: italics, stubs, obliques, or resizing. Excludes other regrinds. Nib provided for regrind must be in good condition, be well aligned and not require any work first.
Bonus: if none of the above appeals to you, you can convert your prize to a credit of £30 which you can use towards a stacked nib order.
The small print
If you are selected and are unable to take advantage of any of the above, or if you do not respond within 48 hours, I will select another winner for the slot.
The promotion will run through the weekend until Monday 9 a.m. GMT. I will not accept entries after that time. Winnin slots must be used by the end of 2020.
Winners will be contacted via any of the platforms I can reach them on. This includes any email address left with your comment, your facebook accounts, or IG accounts. I will not use any personal detail in any other way or for any other reason.
I reserve the right to decline a proposed pen or nib for repair. In which case, you can suggest another one. I reserve the right to withdraw the promotion or cancel a winner’s slot.
