Promotional Marker Pens- make a permanent impression on your clients

Marker Pens are another very useful promotional item available here at the Pen Warehouse. They offer an unusual alternative personalised promotional item to the promotional pens or pencils you see at all the exhibitions. As they are permanent marker pens, they also serve a slightly different purpose to typical personalised pens, which means they will be used when just any old pen won’t do. Ordinary personalised ball pens don’t write well on anything other than paper, and there are so many situations where a permanent marker is a necessary item that you wish you had but can never find.

Permanent markers have the ability to write on a huge range of surfaces such ranging from as plastic, metal and wood and depending on the company you are trying to advertise, this could be one of the most useful items you give out to your customers, with the ability of writing on all sorts of items around both the home and office, having collective appeal.

Printed Marker Pens can be used to write on electrical goods, golf items and a whole multitude of personal items to aid identification and security. The Permanent Marker Pro even comes with a useful clip attached to the cap. We also have a clear plastic wallet which can hold upto four Permanent Marker Pens, ensuring your promotional marker pens are always at hand.

Our Permanent Marker Pro Pens are available in a choice of four popular coloured caps which match the ink colour of the pen, and also to compliment your corporate logo. These useful permanent marker pens are long lasting, making them a great promotional gift which would be greatly appreciated and by both current and new clients. Make sure you have them attractively imprinted with your logo and contact details on the promotional pen, taking advantage of the large print area the Marker offers, ensuring your customers can easily get in touch with you when they need your services.

Our Marker Pens are also available with a holder which accommodates four pens which is supplied with magnetic strips on the reverse. This is a useful accessory for offices and definitely one that is worth looking into for that added touch of expense to make sure your Marker Pens have a constant place in the office where everyone can use them- thus advertising your logo and company further.

Incentives for your Employees

Motivating your employees to hit their sales targets and maintain them is one of the most beneficial things you can do. Rewarding achievements is definitely a way in keeping morale high and making the rest of the team want to do well to reap the benefits also!

When an employee secures the most sales in a month, giving them a high quality executive printed pens in a presentation box is something they will treasure for years to come. They always remember the employer that valued their work and rewarded them for it.

When an employee goes above and beyond and puts ideas forward on how they could become a more efficient team when processing orders, going beyond what is being asked of them should always be encouraged as they know firsthand what’s best for that department. Rewarding them with personalised pens encourages productive ideas to be put forward which can always benefit your company and its development.

Morale is key to the success of a company. If your clients ring in and are always greeted by an upbeat voice at the end of the phone and optimism no matter what the circumstances  then your customers are going to be loyal and willing to work with you if there is ever a problem, because you make every buying experience a memorable one. Rewarding your staff when a client points out that a certain member of staff went above and beyond their call of duty with a personalised pen is definitely a way to maintain this high level of service and will encourage the rest of the team to follow suit.

Giving Promotional Pens to your Employees is a great benefit as it commemorates all their hard work they have put in to generate you profit. If you keep your employees happy then they will ultimately pass this on to your clients in the level of customer service they offer. Pens are definitely a way you can invest in your employees and reap the benefits.

Advertising your company and services successfully

Where do you start with your Marketing campaign? Should you focus on building your company’s image through your website or by direct mail, or even by e-shots to your database of clients? The return on investment on any advertising budget is often minimal, however, that isn’t the case if you invest in personalised pens! It doesn’t take much investment to generate a lot of orders!

If you purchased 500 printed pens, such as Harrier Extra Ball Pens and put your company name, logo, phone number and website on there and successfully handed all 500 out to 500 different people, that’s now 500 people who are now familiar with your brand and services available. What happened if they then lent their pen out to a colleague- they would also then be familiar with your brand. What if every single one of those 500 people went to your website to view all the products you offer- well that’s just boosted your website listings and now each person knows exactly what you offer!

Advertising through direct mail is too temporary unless every single letter is followed up with a courtesy call. Some mail doesn’t even get opened so you’d be lucky if your advertisement was even observed. Doing direct mail advertising campaigns are also very expensive when you add all the paper, envelopes and postage up. E-mails get deleted or often go straight into the spam box, never to be opened and might not attract a single person to visit your website or give you a ring, other than to tell you to stop sending them marketing material!

Pens however cannot be deleted or never seen. They aren’t chucked away as most letters are, as it’s useful. If you send out executive metal pens to all your clients, that’s both comfortable and easy to write with, it’s most likely to become the pen that’s used on a daily basis, reinforcing your company’s name and details time and time again. Promotional Metal Pens don’t have to be expensive, ours start from just £0.45 per unit, including a one colour print yet they still look stylish and belie their true cost very well.

Promotional Pens are definitely one of the most effective Marketing strategies for all businesses. If you would like some advice on our metal pen range, please contact us via the contact us page.

Modern Metal Pens for your Advertising Campaign

If you’re a company who purchase the same plastic promotional pens year on year to advertise your company, why not go for something different and modern to change your image.

My top three executive pens that I have chosen are all made from Aluminium and are new additions to our range for 2010. They are all able to be either engraved or printed to your requirements.

In third place I would suggest Stratus Ball Pens. These are stylish anodised aluminium pens available with an attractive blue or satin silver finish. It’s a modern promotional pen, with two print positions available across the barrel, offering an extremely generous print area.

In close second I would place Torpedo Ball Pens. This is a retractable ballpen with chrome trim and smooth black rubber grip, ergonomically designed to ensure a comfortable writing experience.

My number one suggestion are Electra Ball Pens. It’s an attractive aluminium pen with anodised finish and chrome trim. The unique positioning of the rings also means that that we offer a much larger print area than standard. The Electra is also available in four stunning colour options, my favourite being the Electric Blue. It’s a reasonably priced executive metal pen which looks extremely elegant and modern.

Unlike brand name printed pens, these three do not come with a gift box as standard, though clear presentation tubes and gift boxes are available, just ask a member of our team for more details. I recommend looking into this option because gift boxes will give these low cost printed pens an additional touch of luxury to belie their cost even further.

If you are still unsure of which executive metal personalised pens to go for, why not contact one of our customer service team who will be more than happy to talk you through available options.
