What makes it your writing instrument of choice? Is it the size or weight or ease or writing? Is it the beauty of its contoured body, or the color of ink?

It might have a smoothness of writing like no other. Imagine hundreds of people carrying around your company logo as a treasured possession because it happens to be their favorite pen?

Originally, pens were feathers dipped in berry juice. Then they evolved to the fountain pen. In 1888 the first ball point pen was patented by John J Loud. Rollerball pens were introduced in the 1980's. Today, fountain pens are making a comeback as executives love the elegance and style they bring. Even in our age of technology and digitization, we still use and rely on pens to capture our thoughts. I put pen to paper for what else can I do?
Today's corporate gift pen has evolved into a melding of form and function. With new materials such as carbon fiber mixed with the old traditions of brass or chrome, we've come to a point where great pens can have both a terrific feel and a pleasant writing tip.
