Promotional Pens & Writing Instruments

Promotional pens are the most popular promotional products for promoting a brand, corporate identity or event. Branded pens are practical, low cost and will last for many years. Printed pens with your company logo and slogan will increase brand awareness, customer loyalty and generate new sales opportunities. Hand out your personalised pens at trade shows and conferences, or use them in direct mail campaigns for maximum effect. With ballpens, you will be placing your brand in the hands and on the desks of existing and potential future customers!


As the saying goes The pen is mightier than the sword. Although this well known saying generally refers to the idea that information or knowledge is more powerful than a weapon, there is some truth in it when it comes to marketing and advertising. Promotional pens and writing instruments are the preferred choice for many organisations and businesses who wish to push to the forefront of their particular sectors. This certainly rings true when you take into consideration that these promo pens can literally find themselves in the hands of many other people who in turn could become your future customers. Put simply, custom logo imprinted promotional pens and writing instruments are the ideal advertising vehicle for directing customers and sales to your door.

Promotional gifts such as pens are extremely powerful merely for the fact that these low cost items are probably one of the most useful office items of all time. Lets face it; everyone needs a pen at some point. Ask yourself: how many times have you asked someone if you could borrow a pen? When you think of it like this, in the workplace this is probably one of the most commonly asked questions and when you align this thought with the fact that a distinctive plastic pen or emblazoned with your logo and telephone number can be an amazing marketing and advertising weapon.

Metal pens are equally as powerful and these are perfect for handing out to your most deserving employee who you feel have stepped up to the mark as a recognition gift. The pen you gift, or it could even be pen set, will continually act as a reminder to an employee of your generosity as an employer and will go a great way to boosting morale. Gifting promotional metal pens to customers is also an assured way to get a positive result. If you select a stylish option, they will use the pen on a regular basis and be reminded daily that you went the extra mile for them. This in turn will lead to increased customer loyalty and as a result directly increase your bottom line.

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.

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.
