Here is a copy of a blog entry from our corporate site.
For almost 20 years Dayspring Pens has been working to provide our customers with a complete range of promotional pens, from value plastic pens to high end brand name corporate gift pens and everything in between. Choosing the right pen is the key to making both you and your client pleased with your purchase.
Step one I will deal with in this entry – What is your purpose or use for the promotion or award?
Next time, we will outline the grades or differences between the different types of pens.
Step 1 – What is your purpose for the pen
Daily customers will call to ask how much do your pens cost. Given that we have pens that start at $.19 each and go up to $200 each ( and everything in between), that is harder to answer than one may think.
For example: One time we answered our pens start at $.19 cents each, and the called said “I am looking for something better than that” and ended the phone call. Another time we answered we have pens in every price range, most are around a $1-5 each, and we got the reply “that is more than I want to spend.”
So, the better place to start is not asking how much they cost, but what are you trying to do with the pens, or what is their purpose. Telling our sales team your purpose will help us to guide you to the best choices.
(I realize that some customers are hesitant to reveal this for fear that they will ‘sold’ something nicer than what they intended. We just do not do business like that here at Dayspring. )
Here are some common purposes for promotional or custom pens
- Mass hand out or distribution. Examples are: Tradeshows or fairs, even dropping them from a helicopter, or for common use around the office.
- More targeted client gifts. Examples include a seminar for your clients, where you want a little nicer pen. Or sales calls where you want to leave a gift.
- Company gifts. For rewarding your team, or employees with “x” number of years, or holiday awards.
- Executive awards. Examples can be for board members, or high level meetings, international trip gifts etc.
And the list could go on and on.
Each purpose would have a different ‘class’ of pen that would be best. You would not want to give out a plastic promo pen in a board meeting, nor a corporate pen left on your trade show table for hundreds to pick up. ( although they would go fast!)
Next time we will discuss understanding the options when it comes to choosing a pen, there are more than you think!
Just in time for the business giving season, Dayspring has added new Corporate business pens to our site.
When it comes to pens, it is helpful to know that there are:
- promotional grade pen typically under $5,
- corporate pens from $5-25 each,
- and then brand name pens like Cross or Waterman from $25-$200 each.
- Each of these has a place in business gift giving.
If you looking for a promotional pen to put in with a card or handout out in bulk, then a good promotional metal like our Matrix is perfect.
If you are looking for a pen or set in a case, then our corporate pens are just what you need.
And for special clients, or board members, you should consider a Brand name Cross pen with your logo in it, or a personal name.

I read a blog that ‘spoke’ volumes! Your pen is talking! Here is an excerpt from the blog.
Did You Know Your Pen Could Talk?
As a business professional, you likely know having a pen on you at all times is necessary for success. Whether you are handing it to a customer to sign a check or using it to sign off on a delivery of new products, you need a pen! But, you’re not the only one! In fact, one of the best ways to market for your business is to actually let a pen do the talking for you. Yes, it sounds crazy but makes perfect sense!
Think about all the other professionals and customers that you see on a daily basis, one way to keep them thinking about your business is by providing them with a quality pen to keep in their pocket or purse. Anytime they have to sign a document or lend a pen to their customers, having a full color imprinted pen with your business name on it will serve as a reminder of your business and the great services you offer. Next time the need for your products or services arises, all they have to do is pull out their favorite pen and know who to call! Not only can they see that you are a legitimate, quality company, but it brands your business without you even having to speak a single word.
So, while your pen cannot sell products for your business, a quality imprinted pen can speak to others and can do wonders for your business.
