Make an Impression with Promotional Pens, Pencils & Highlighters

The promotional pen continues to be the number one best-selling promotional product. The core reasons for this are their affordability, ease of customisation and, of course, their usefulness.

But all pens are not created equal; there are a huge variety of materials, colours and styles available, across the whole spectrum of price points. We have cheap plastic pens starting from as little as 9p rising to high quality branded metal options, starting from under £3 per unit, complete with presentation box.

With careful planning, a printed pen giveaway can offer exceptional return on investment. Here are some factors to consider when designing your marketing strategy:

Target Audience
Do you wish to hand out pens printed with your logo to target prospects at an exhibition or do you want to thank loyal clients with something a little more high end? Your audience will dictate the materials you select and the cost per unit you should expect to pay. Plastic pens are highly cost effective and can be printed digitally in full colour, making them perfect for mass brand awareness campaigns. Metal pens can still be a very affordable option when purchased in bulk, they can be engraved with your logo and are well worth the extra investment for creating a better impression. Executive pens, meanwhile, start at around £10, and are available at much lower volumes, making them ideal Christmas gifts for key customers.

Quantity Required
Most of our plastic pens are available in a minimum quantity of 250-500. Metal pens have a lower minimum quantity of 50-100, while executive pens are likely to have a minimum of order of between 10-25. The more you order, the better value it represents.

Print/Engraving Area
The shape of your company logo and the amount of information you want to appear is an important factor to consider when choosing a promotional pen. Select a pen with a large print area if you want to feature lots of details, like your logo, contact details and a key message. You should also decide whether you want to print on the barrel or the clip, or both.

Print Colours
Consider how many colours you want to print and to how many positions, bearing in mind that the more colours you print the more expensive the final cost will be. Most plastic pens will allow up to 6 spot colours on the barrel and 2 or 3 colours on the clip.
Brand and Style
The promotional pen you choose needs to reflect your company image; be that professional, fun, luxury or high tech. Our range includes prestigious brands such as Parker, Cross, Sheaffer and Lamy, to ensure you make the right impression.

Lead Time
We can deliver in 7 workings days from artwork approval and in most cases 5-7 working days on an express delivery. Do you need your order expedited in a hurry? For those last minute events we have a few styles which we can deliver in 24 hours.
