Fountain Pens, Ballpoints and Rollerballs
The most common types of executive pen are fountain, ballpoint and rollerball.abercrombie och fitch kvinnor
, Fountain pens contain a well of water-based ink and a nib, which is a metal point that guides the ink. Ballpoint pens have oil-based ink and require more pressure when you write. Rollerball pens use water-based ink and a different ball mechanism. They require less pressure when writing but the ink will run if it gets wet. High-quality executive pens are available in all three styles, and the choice is usually based on user preference.
Click, Twist and Stick
There are three common pen designs: click, twist, and stick Stick pens are probably the most common, and these are the ones that are simply a barrel and a cap. Click pens have a clicking mechanism that exposes or retracts the point, while twist pens use a twist mechanism. Most gift pens are either stick or twist pens, and all fountain pens are stick pens. There are many quality pens available in both stick and twist, and again, selection is a matter of personal preference.
Stylus, USB and Multifunction Pens
Stylus, USB and multifunction pens are a new, exciting, and growing promotional pen category. Their popularity is related to the explosion of PDA's and other electronic devices into the marketplace. When choosing a multifunction or memory stick pen as a gift, look for something that has the additional functionality you want, but also has a good look and feel. Remember, you're making an investment in this gift and it will only pay off if the recipient loves to use the pen.
Artwork, Imprinting and Customization
Gift pens are usually laser engraved, or imprinted with a logo. Think of it as a gift with tasteful branding rather than just an advertisement for your company or organization. One way of including your logo tastefully is to print it using tone-on-tone, for example, a black imprint on a black pen. The imprint will still be visible, but it will be much more subtle and won't detract from the value of the pen as a gift. Other subtle imprinting options include printing or engraving just the cap or clip of the pen. When deciding on your artwork, a gift pen is one case in which a simple logo will suffice. Leave taglines and other messages for your promotional advertising products.
