Promotional Pens Are A Super Useful Gift
Guest Post By Eric G. Thomas
At some point almost every person has received some type of promotional item from a business or organization. While these promotional goods do serve a purpose, they are often under-utilized, thus making the items less than effective. That is absolutely not the case with promotional budget pens. One of the great things about distributing promotional budget pens to potential customers is that they truly are functional items, as opposed to lots of other types of promotional objects that rarely or never actually are put into use, pens are used by almost all of us.
It doesn’t matter what type of business is involved, these pens are always exceptional tools for reminding potential customers of the business. When a person receives one of these pens and places it in his or her pocket or pocketbook there is a high probability that the pen will actually be utilized at some point. Maybe when the person needs to sign a check or credit slip they will use the pen and think about the business that passed out the pen.
At times the person who received the pen will let someone else use the pen. That person may stop to read the print on the pen which will further expand the item’s promotional capabilities. For small local enterprises such as gas stations and repair shops, art galleries, shoe repair stores, craft and hobby shops, apartment rental companies and restaurants, these reasonably priced pens can serve as regular reminders of the presence of and services supplied by these organizations.
The usage of inexpensive pens for promotional purposes is not limited to businesses. These pens can be used by a variety of non-profit and for-profit organizations to raise awareness of their causes and purposes. Sports teams at all levels from amateur to professional can gain from handing out promotional pens as can musical acts, academic associations, youth and senior groups and theatrical groupings. Quite frequently people will highly value them and save these pens as souvenirs.
Various sizes and styles of promotional pens are always available. Some businesses prefer to use stick pens while others favor retractable pens. Felt-tip markers are sometimes used as promotional tools as are extra-small, novelty-style pens. The cost of promotional pens is typically very low, making them a very cost-effective form of advertising. When these pens are ordered in big quantities the price often drops to just pennies per pen. That being said promotional budget pens offer quite a bit of bang for the promotional buck.

I think it’s important to remember that the pens should be of a nice quality. i recieve so many that are not even usable and go straight in the bin. The pen should be something people will want on their desk!

I find it amazing that with all the new innovative products that are available on the market, promotional pens are still right up there at the top of the list. In reality there is little wonder why, they are super cost effective, and get your branding right in the hands of your potential clients and we all use a pen throughout the day even though we are also tied to our computers. I agree with the point Edmund raise about quality, with so many distributors pushing suppliers on price they are left with no option but to try to attain the same pen from an alternative factory but at a lower price, however this also affects the quality so the industry needs to be careful.

Hey Gareth, I agree with endless options “The Pen” still offers a very cost effective way to expose a brand. I had a client call me the other day and ask for a “Cheap Pen” I send open your wallet pull out a few bucks and toss them in the trash – he responded huh? I said when you give out a cheap pen it’s going to get tossed and you are going to loose the money you spent – however, give a pen of quality and the recipient will use it almost daily exposing your brand over and over again.
