The above said was my conception or better say misconception because pen was important is important and will be important. Just go back and see the life of student, you will find the importance of pen. Handwriting of a person can only be analyzed with the importance of pen. You can convert a check only when it has the sign of the owner with pen. Most of the examination can be passed only when you have written well (off-course with pen). Lol, I am right now, pen plays vital role in the life of an individual. Pens are actually your part of life. Writing a love letter signifies importance only when it is written with hand.
Market has many pens around, popular company like Pilot, Add, Linc, Parker provides wide range of pen. These work as a wonderful gift. But when it comes to make your near and dear one feel special, I would suggest you to go for personalized pens. Haven't you heard about it, personalized pens are same simple pen but tagged with quote or name of your choice. If you want to gift a unique piece for your friends you could consider sending them these pens.
However these cheap promotional pens find extensive use on promotional front. Companies pick them open heartedly for carrying advertisement campaign and gifting to their clients. These pens are unique in a way that these are made on orders and you cannot find it in general stores. There are printing companies who offer these services. If you are a businessman and you want to create personalized pens with logos or brand name of your company, hire the services of these companies.
The pens can also be given to the employees to bring the level of formality and discipline. It will also create a well said promotion, for instance a client come for a discussion, your employee discuss the strategy with him/her. It is sure that the unique pen with logo will catch the eye ball of the client.
However it is not that you just create the pen with logo and name, creating the pen blindly will not work. Going for cheapest promotional pens will not alone work. Try personalizing the pen which are worth, at least client or employee find it worth carrying. Pen should be chosen according to the profession and level. If you are giving pen to elite group or prospect client it is suggested to gift them parker or something similar. Similarly students should be given pens which are at least well in flow.
The cost of personalized pen largely depends upon the number of pen you are ordering. It is inversely proportional to the number. More you order lesser is the cost. So for analyze the promoting campaign and order the same from a professional printing company.
