Promotional pens have got to be the number 1 best selling promotional products in the whole wide world. They rank just above promotional keyrings and will always remain that way as everyone needs a pen at some time. Printed plastic pens are by far the biggest seller in this sector of the promotional products business. They are manufactured in their billions and literally come in every colour under the rainbow. There are companies such as Argos, Tesco and any gambling establishments that use more than 10 million of these fantastic promotional items every year. You only have to go into Argos and see how many of the small blue plastic pens that are lying on the counter to see what I mean. Many of the plastic pens are sure to leave the store with customers but Argos probably are quite happy to see them go to the homes of customers who will remember where they came from
Promotional metal pens would be the next most popular item in terms of promotional writing instruments. In the old days these pens would have been every expensive and rather heavy as stainless steel was the most popular metal used. However most printed metal pens are now made from metal that is so cheap and thin it weighs the same if not less than some printed plastic pens. That said they look fantastic and are available in a massive range of colours and sizes. The contrast that is achievable between the barrels and clips of these printed metal pens is beautiful.
There is a wonderful range of novelty promotional pens on the market and these encompass everything from pens with characters on top such as Disney animals as well as national monuments such as the Eiffel tower or London’s Big Ben. One of the most popular forms of novelty promotional pens are the ones with floating pieces inside them. For many years the best sellers in this filed of business gits were the cheeky ones that apparently showed a saucy lady undressing as the pen was tipped up and down. These are now used for all sorts of promotions and work every well as mailers in promotional merchandise campaigns.
The more upmarket promotional pens are made by famous names such as Parker, Cross and probably the best known of all Mont Blanc. Mont Blanc promotional pens are very popular because they are seen as having a very high perceived value. They look stunning with their black bodies and white cap tip representing the top of “The White Mountain”
Everyone would have heard of the famous Parker Vector Rollerball, it’s one of the best known promotional pens on the planet and still sellers in millions every year. Cross pens are not quite as well known outside the business gift world but the are very popular promotional metal pens nonetheless.
