It’s time for the Season 2 Raffle!

Hi all you loyal Pen Habit Supporters!  It is, at last, time to being the much talked-about, much lauded Pen Habit Season 2 Raffle.  All the PayPal and Google Wallet Donations have been accounted for, all the Patreon payments have been processed. And now, there’s nothing left but to announce the winners.

But before we begin, please allow me to offer a deep, heartfelt thanks for all of your amazing support this season, both monetarily and emotionally. It has been a great several months, I’ve managed to find a groove that works for me, and hopefully still provide you with all of the video-based addition enabling you can handle. So, again, thank you!

Here’s how the raffle is going to work: I’ve put every donor’s entries into a large spreadsheet. Using the random number generator at, I will pick one number a day. I will post the winner on social media and on this blog post (so check back often) and email the winner directly. The winner has two weeks to get back to me with a mailing address to which they would like me to send their pen and pick a bottle of ink to accompany their prize (more on that below.)

If I haven’t heard back from the winner in two weeks, then I will draw a another winner from the list. If you win, and you don’t want the prize you won, please let me know and I will draw another winner for that prize. Winning one prize does not disqualify you from winning additional prizes so long as your number is called.

Not mentioned as part of the original raffle, but I’ve got several bottles of ink in my collection that I will likely never use (as they don’t interest me all that much.) So, rather than have them collect dust on my shelves, I figured I would include a bottle of ink with each prize. You can pick the color of your choice when you get back to me with your mailing address.  These bottles range from completely full to mostly full. The list to pick from includes:

  • Aurora Black
  • Graf von Faber Castell Garnet Red
  • De Atramentis Lily of the Valley
  • De Atramentis Yellow Ochre
  • Diamine Emerald
  • J. Herbin 1670 Bleu Ocean (old formula, without the gold sparkles)
  • J. Herbin Gris Nuage
  • J. Herbin Vert Empire
  • Kaweco Royal Blue
  • Montblanc Mystery Black
  • Montblanc Oyster Grey
  • Montblanc Permanent Blue
  • Noodlers Brown
  • Noodlers Blue Black
  • Noodlers Violet
  • Noodlers Zhivago
  • Omas Black
