10 Best-Selling Promotional Pens
End-users find their fingers flying in all directions thanks to computer and phone keyboards, but the rhythmic and reliable practice of pushing a writing instrument from left to right will never lose favor. With so many thoughts on everyone’s minds, some people treat committing ideas to paper as an exercise in using whatever is handy, while the fastidious folks among us prefer to develop and nurture a connection with certain tools. No matter the complexity of a selection, promotional pens need to be a sturdy presence in our lives for those moments when inspiration strikes, assignments beckon and electronic devices fail us.
“The writing instruments category has seen a lot of transformation,” Mark St. Peter, import executive for Greater China Industries, Inc., Bellevue, Wash., said. "We’ve seen the custom business diminish significantly, with the industry trending more on inexpensive commodity pens. From the manufacturing side, we’ve seen many pen manufacturers disappear simply because they could not compete in that low-cost commodity price point.”
