Printed pens and promotional pens, custom imprinted from One Stop Promotions

Promotional printed pens

The promotional pen has always been the backbone of the promotional products industry. Usually the first promotional product people think of and ever present in the majority of company’s promotional marketing strategy, printed pens are as close to the perfect promotional product as you can get. They are low cost, useful, available in a huge range of styles, but most importantly they are effective. To test their effectiveness have a look in your desk drawer or on a colleagues desk, 9 times out of 10 you will find a pen with some sort of print on it. This proves that a pen given as a giveaway at an event, conference or exhibition is usually kept by the recipient and used in their everyday life. A free pen giveaway is gratefully received and if you are anything like me you visit the stands which are handing out promotional pens! Just think if your contact details or corporate message was on these pens, it would be a daily reminder to your customers of who you are, what you offer and how to contact you.

Promotional pens are not just cheap one off items. You really do get a great product for a small monetary outlay. If you are looking for something which has a bit more of a quality look and feel to it, we have a range of metal pens from well known manufacturers such as BIC, parker and waterman which are all available custom imprinted with your message or contact details. Cheap promotional pens are great as a low cost exhibition giveaway.

How about using a promotional pen as an alternative to a business card? Business cards can be quite useful as they sit nicely in your wallet, purse or business card holder but are kept out of sight and are easily forgotten. Printed promotional pens on the other hand are kept on a desk and can be in use throughout the working day and are not only visible by yourself but any of your colleagues as well.

When designing your promotional pen it is important not to clutter the print area. Promotional pens don't have a huge advertising space so in the case of designing your printed pen it is important to use the saying "Less is more". Try to focus on the important aspects such as phone number, web or email address and maybe a small logo. Too much detail printed onto a pen can easily be lost and look unprofessional.

If you are thinking that promotional pens are just too widely used and won’t set you apart from the rest then think again. Promotional pen manufacturers are becoming more and more creative with their ideas and keeping up with today’s technological trends so they are introducing more and more innovative products such a pens with laser lights or a pen which can also be used as a stylus for your phone or iPod.
