About Me

Hello! My goal is to create a convenient way to find American made goods of all sorts. I host a new giveaway nearly every week, and I add new links every day! *I do not get paid for any of this. I just want to show Americans how easy (and important) it is to support companies who are manufacturing high quality goods right here in the USA and hiring American workers! Buy American!

Minuteman Pen - Giveaway!!!

Since school is back in session, I've been buying more pens and pencils. I'm happy to say that I've found a wonderful manufacturer of American made pens, pencils, and markers: Minuteman Pen!

Minuteman Pen sells pens, pencils and markers that have been manufactured in the US for over 40 years. All of their products are made domestically, and they are family owned and operated.

Their pens are used by large companies all over the US including UPS, Holiday Inn, and Sovereign Bank. Also, they have just begun to sell their product as office supplies so hopefully we will start to see Minuteman Pens in some stores, schools and businesses.

The winner of this week's giveaway will receive 4 free cartons of a variety of products from Minuteman Pen!
Rules for entry:
- Go visit Minuteman Pen and pick out your favorite product
- Leave a comment on this post listing your favorite product
- Must have continental US Shipping Address
- ONE Entry per person, and you must leave a way for me to contact you if you win!

"The Minutemen were in the Revolutionary War and their slogan was Ready to Fight (hence, Ready to Write). Don't you like the little Revolutionary War guy carrying the pen (it's a USA Click Grip, in case you're wondering)?Thanks to everyone for checking out my site!" - Greg

I like the USA stick as it is what I am used to. I remember when ball point pens came out in the 50's our teachers went ballistic saying that they would ruin handwriting for all time. If we were even caught with one it was confiscated and if we tried to do any work even homework with a ballpoint it was an automatic F. Well they were wrong and anyone who can remember drippy ink was glad for them.
