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 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
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, etc. the choices are many.
Promotional Pen Tips
While it may be tempting to go for the cheapest option, consider your demographic. If your client contact is a C-suite executive, a cheap plastic pen will just as easily be seen as an insult as a gift. But, if you are a supplier to mechanics or pharmacies, low cost pens will be well received - high enquiry businesses such as these are always scrambling for pens.
Another thing to consider with your 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 pen can be manufactured in your company colours. In the case of high-end metallic Parker, 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 that they're not 'just another number'.
