Many people think that promotional metal gift pens are expensive. While some are, there are also some real bargains out there. In this article, I introduce five of my favourites.
A lot of people think that promotional metal pens have to be expensive. This isn’t always true though. There are actually a lot of high quality metal pens on which you can print your logo and contact details without spending a lot of money. What’s more, many of these pens still look and write like the more expensive name brand pens.
Generic metal pens have all of the style that the name brand pens have but without the high price tag. You should take a moment to actually check these pens out for yourself. There are some real bargains available to help you promote your business. I have personally tested each of the following pens but you may wish to ask your pen supplier for samples so that you can do the same before making a large purchase. Once you find a good promotional pen that you like, you can rest assured that your customers will like it too. With this in mind, here are some metal pens that you will definitely want to check out.
These promotional pens look great. They come in an elegant gift box, which makes them even more special. They are quite heavy which is a bonus. People tend to prefer heavier gift pens.
These printed pens come in silver, red, black and navy and are some of the best selling promotional pens on the market today. They come in a gift box that also contains a high quality German made precision black ink refill. There is plenty of room to have your logo printed on them too.
LPC 016 Ballpen
While these low cost promotional pens have a very generic name, it still comes with a nice gift box. This makes the pen look more expensive than it is. The LPC 016 ballpen can be printed or engraved. It is available in silver, red, navy and blue.
This pen is a great value for your money. While it is inexpensive, it will still meet all of your expectations. You can purchase it in red, green, silver or black. There is a lacquer finish on it and chrome trim. Unfortunately, it doesn’t come with a gift box but your customers will definitely enjoy writing with this beauty. I recommend asking your pen supplier to source a gift box for you. Parsifal Ballpen
This is a twist action pen that is only available in black with chrome plated metal trim. The print area is also quite small (20mm x 20mm) so you will need to be creative with your design. However, the quality of the pen is really good. Unfortunately, there is no gift box with this pen either but gift boxes are not difficult to source.
