For another year in a row promotional writing instruments were number two in the sales of promotional products. It's obvious why they're such great sellers...everyone can use a pen!
Today I was able to see hands on some of the latest and greatest pens on the market. Through this meeting I was able to learn some things about pens that I’d never known before. For instance…certain pens can cost up to $40,000 of course for promotional purposes the price is generally under a dollar a piece.
My humble hands were lucky enough to hold a more high-end, hand-made from precious metal resin Parker pen. It was a beautiful pen. And for special corporate event and people like the late comedian Mitch Hedburg, who said "I bought a seven dollor pen because I alway lose pens, and I got sick of not caring."...expensive pens are a good idea.
But for me, after playing around with the whole bunch of them I found the custom imprinted Papermate sport retractable pen to be my favorite. Sure it doesn’t have gold plating or a fancy design, but it’s convenient and writes great. I also love the promotional Uni-Ball Jetstream pen that we all have here at Motivators. Now I have it in a lovely red ink to mark up all of my blogs with…well not exactly.
The point is that when looking for a promotional pen there are a ton of options. And as far as a meeting about pens goes, it was very interesting. Even more interesting, Johnny Depp used to be a pen salesmen.
