In the spotlight: Pens


There's nothing like putting pen to paper

Promotional Pens are one of the most popular and cost effective ways to promote your business and increase brand awareness. Think about it. Every time the recipient writes something down they see your message. Compelling stuff. Not to mention the fact that recipients of promotional items, especially those that are useful, are far more likely to do business with you in the future.

The range is tremendous. From entry level plastic pens, rollerballs with a sleek metal finish, executive ball pens with a touch of grandeur, to eco-friendly pens made from recycled materials – we’ve got the lot. By our reckoning the team at Bright Ideas has access to more than 5,000 pens!

That’s great news for our customers. No matter who you are and what you are trying to achieve there will be a suitable product that will provide a good fit with your brand and target audience. With our extensive knowledge we can help to find the best possible match.

To kick start this process we’ve pulled together a little guide to help introduce the breadth of products available and highlight a few of our bestselling items.
