I Love Pens!

I am a pen hoarder! I love writing on paper. I like the look and the privacy of putting pen to paper. One does not have to worry about a hacker getting important information like when using the computer. Might have to worry about the cat eating the paper. Yes, I have a cat that loves chewing on paper, Emo. It is crazy. Maybe he thinks he is a dog. ๐Ÿ™‚

I love looking at pens on different websites and in stores.ย Iย have pens of all types and colors, including the ink and the outside of the pen. I came across a great pen selection at PenFactory.com. It has me thinking I could use some pens with my business name and website on them.

I once worked for a grocery store as a secretary. I would order our pens like this as a way to advertise. Why not? Sometimes I end up with an extra pen from a business that I did not mean to take. ๐Ÿ™‚ ย OOPs. Whenever I used the pen again I would remember the business and go back shopping.ย One reason to order pens with your business on it. And it is cool to see your name on something. ๐Ÿ™‚

If you think about the cost of advertising, it is pretty reasonable to order a sizable amount of pens. Plus, you get a cool pen to add to your collection! ๐Ÿ˜‰ I have had good luck with promotional pens, they write well. ๐Ÿ™‚

I’m thinking of going with the twist promotional pens. If I get the clicking ones, I irritate myself by clicking the top when I’m thinking. ๐Ÿ˜‰

It is a toss-up between these two:

I like the colors and the magnet would be cool.

—- Click it to the fridge or the file cabinet.

—- No trying to find a pen. ๐Ÿ™‚

Do you hoard pens?

    I don’t hoard pens, but my husband does an amazing job of taking all mine. I go to reach for one, and poof! It’s gone. Not sure where’ he’s putting them all!

      Buy a personalized one, a co-worker did that for me and her and it was amazing how it would reappear on our desks eventually! LOL

        I get one every year when I go for my annual mammogram. It’s bright pink. Maybe I should leave that one out. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    I want your pens.

    Those pens do look nice! I try not to horde pens. I have so much right now that I’m currently trying to use most of them up before buying new ones.

      I tell myself that as well but then I see one in the store and it tells me to buy it! LOL

    Aragorn, my cat loves pens too (as do I) He’s always nicking mine! ๐Ÿ˜€

      Oh fun!!! Cats are so much fun. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Reblogged this on Kev's Great Indie Authors and commented:
    Ok folks, whatever you do, don’t tell, Aragorn about this post! (He’s nicked enough of my pens already and doesn’t need the encouragement.) ๐Ÿ˜€

      I won’t tell! Thank you for the reblog! ๐Ÿ™‚

    I had to make a quick run to the dollar store and thought of you as I dashed through the aisle with pens. Hmmm. That makes me think I will forever think of you when I see pens. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    I love pens, too. When Rich goes to trade shows, he always brings back advertising swag. I grab all the pens! If I’m using a ballpoint, I like my pens to have “weight.” However, my favorite pen these days is a Uniball Deluxe Fine Point Roller Ball. I love how it glides across the paper. Their advertising says it rivals a fountain pen.

      Oh funny! Yes trade show pens! Or visiting colleges, they love to give pens! Weighted pens are nice! I love the fine point ones as well. When I was in high school I wrote my notes in different colored pens and it worked for me to remember better, plus it looked pretty! ๐Ÿ™‚
