Why promotional pens?

Branded pens are the perfect promotional giveaway for marketing events and advertising campaigns! All our pens can be custom printed with your company logo and message! 

Research carried out by the British Promotional Merchandise Association (BPMA) demonstrates that promotional pens remain the number one choice when it comes to increasing brand awareness and creating a lasting impression.


1. Branded pens for business - the ultimate practical brand ambassadors

There are many benefits to using custom pens and pencils to promote your business. A key one is their ability to travel far beyond the original recipient. 

Company pens seem to disappear when you need one most. If you've noticed this, you'll appreciate pens have an ability to carry a message to new potential customers.

When someone asks for a pen, most people would provide one! The writer then simply walks off with it never to be seen again!. If you find business pens are flying off your desk then you should ensure they go with your logo on them!


2. The perfect cost-effective business marketing and advertising solution

Businesses monitor their marketing budgets on a regular in order to achieve the very best possible return on their investment. 

This is where high-quality pens are the solution for many companies. They offer an amazing ability to reach a large audience in a cost-effective manner. 

No other merchandising products get even close when it comes to the practicality, diverse range of styles and finishes, array of colour options and low prices!


3. Personalised pens - the write choice

With so many branded pens to choose from it can be difficult to choose. When considering which pens, they can be split into two categories, plastic and metal.

Plastic ballpoint pens are the cheapest option and the most popular marketing giveaways. They're the foundation of the promotional merchandise market with thousands of colours, styles and ink options.

Luxury engraved metal pens are used for those extra special occasions. These include corporate gifts for clients, celebrating a business anniversary or employee recognition.

Pens FAQ

Our most economical pens are the Contour Pen, Super Saver Extra Pen and the Electra Business Pens.
Most of our pens are black ballpoint ink, which is oil-based and writes on the majority of surfaces. We also offer black gel pens that are water-based.
The majority of our pens have black ink but some are also available in blue and few with multi-colour options.
The ink in our pens is formulated to work for at least two years, depending on usage. If you receive defective pens in your order or have questions, please contact our customer services department.
Screen printing and pad printing are the most common processes for imprinting on pens. With the advance of technology we can also offer UltraHD print which allows for full colour graphics and logos to reproduced.
The colours that appear on your computer monitor or on a print out will not provide you the exact Pantone Matching System Colour of our pens. This is because each printer and monitor are calibrated differently. If this is a concern for you, we would recommend ordering a free sample.

Design and Artwork Questions

Assuming you are happy with your quotation, simply email your logo and imprint details to your dedicated Account Manager. Files we prefer to receive are EPS, AI and PDF vector formats; JPG and PNG files can sometimes be accepted. Please send us the highest resolution file you have available.

If your art resolution is too low to convert, we may have to redraw it and additional charges could incur depending on the complexity. This also could result in additional production time.

Production requires artwork to be at least 150 dots per inch at print size.
Very detailed artwork does not print well on pens because of the small imprint area available. If we cannot use your artwork, we will try to provide you with options. We may suggest using only text.
Of course! You can get free expert art advice from one of our trained graphic designers.
We typically keep artwork/designs on file for approximately three years.
We have 1,000’s of fonts to choose from for your pens imprint. If you want to use your own font, you must convert it to outlines (graphics) in Adobe Illustrator, Corel Draw or a similar program before sending it to us. You can submit your favourite font name and we will use it if we have it, or we can search for something similar.
Yes. We will send a FREE proof to you via email, typically the same day you decide to proceed, depending on the time of day we receive it. After receiving your proof, we ask that you contact your Account Manager to approve your design or have any changes made.
Yes, most of our pens have multi-colour imprint options. Please see the product detail page for additional print colour options.
Yes, on certain pens this is possible, but please note that our product prices include one artwork/imprint per order. Additional imprint colours or for printing to both sides of the pens will incur additional costs which will be outlined on your quotation accordingly.
The Pantone Matching System is a standardised colour reproduction system that will more accurately produce true colours for your pen order. Each PMS Colour is represented by a number and is used most often for logos and branding.

CMYK Value is a four-color process that layers cyan, magenta, yellow and black ink to form your chosen colour. CMYK (UltraHD print) is best for projects with multiple-coloured imprints, such as photographs.
