Promotional Pen Tips
Promotional pens remain one of the most used and favourite promotional gifts, because they can suit all budgets, and of course everybody uses them. Promotional pens choices are vast, and they can even be colour matched to your logo, and these days some models can be printed with full colour photographic pictures. The most basic personalised pens are generally called stick pens, where the cap is removed and placed on the other end so you can write with them, the next price bracket up, is the retractable cheap promotional pens, where the ink is able to be clicked in and out , next up is plastic pens with metal trims, these now start to look a bit more expensive, and then the next bracket up is the full metal pens, which can start from around $1.00 ea, up to brand name printed pens, or laser engraved pens like Parker pens, Bic pens, Waterman pens, Mont blanc pens, and Sheaffer pens. The brand name pens can even be branded with a metal emblem on the clip, which is long lasting and very classy. Also most of them have gift packaging options available. Some of the other promotional pens choices include, environmentally friendly pens, eco friendly pens, anti bacterial pens, highlighter pens, USB pens, conference pens, pens with floating logo's in liquid, custom shaped pens, highlighters etc, the choices are many.
While it may be tempting to go for the cheapest option, consider your demographic. If your client contact is an executive, cheap plastic pens will just as easily be seen as an insult as a gift. But if you are a supplier to mechanics or pharmacies, low cost business pens will be well received, high enquiry businesses such as these, are always scrambling for branded pens or promotional pencils.
Another thing to consider with your printed promotional pens, is how much branding to include. We have many colour options on our plastic pens, so not only can we print your logo upon the pen, but the corporate pens can be manufactured in your company colours. In the case of high-end metallic Parker pens, Mont Blanc or Sheaffer pens, less is often more. A badge or emblem can be better than a full logo, and if you're looking at a small quantity, you could consider engraving the recipient's name on the pen, to show them that they're a highly valued client.
Personalised pens work, nobody gets them, and then throws them away, they are always kept because they are useful, and many of our customers keep placing repeat orders for them, year after year, and they are handed out by their reps, or kept on shop counters, or reception desks. Custom pens have been around a long time, and they are a time proven promotional tool, and sure to catch your customers eye.
