While just about anyone could use a free pen, here are a few factors to consider when shopping for promotional pens: Color Ink Style Material Imprint Case 6. Color Think about your audience when deciding on the color of both the ink and the pen itself. 7. Certain industries prefer black ink while others might prefer blue. 8. Consider using red ink for teachers, writers or proofreaders who may need to use the pens to make corrections, edits or notes that will stand out. 9. The color of the outside of the pen is also important. You can choose the colors of your brand or choose based on the connotation of the color. For example, green often promotes an eco-friendly image. 10. Ink Ink type is often a personal preference, so go with whatever type will suit your pen's overall message. 11. Fountain Pens Often construed as fancier than ballpoint pens Refillable so your promotion will last a lot longer than traditional pens 12. Ballpoint Pens Least expensive to produce, which can help keep your costs down 13. Gel & Rollerball Pens Extremely popular among all age groups 14. Style Promotional pens can be found with all different closing styles. 15. Retractable (Click) Pens No cap to keep track of Can be clicked open and closed quickly 16. Twist Pens Also don't have a cap to hold onto Less likely to open on their own Slower to open and close 17. Capped Pens Require the removal of the cap in order to use the pen 18.
