The ODM Group have conducted huge research on promotional pens, and thanks to our favourite and highly-trusted supplier we are now aware of the all top-trending tendencies in pens industry.
In order to compete with the latest technologies, with the thread of being totally replaced by the inflow of electronic gadgets, the suppliers of writing instruments nowadays need to be exceptionally creative. And they succeed! Here we have collected the most interesting and innovative designs for pens, which will for sure stand out of the regular range of promotional items. They will definitelly bring lots of attention to your brand.
1. Stylus + Retractable Ballpen
In 2016 pens need to adjust to our new acquired habits to constantly interact with our smartphones and tablets. Here comes the brilliant idea of combining two functions: a usual ballpoint and stylus. The retractable mechanism is the same as those we used to have in pens for decades. The nib pushes straight through the conductive stylus, offering an immediate advantage.
2. Pens With Screen Cleaner
An absolute necessity in everyday life: keep your touch screen smudge and fingerprint free. With the microfibre screen cleaner integrated on the clip you can easily get rid of water drops and spots on your cellphone. By using this promotional pen for brand placement, you will provide your clients not just with a simple writing instrument, but with an extremely useful item. Can be manufactured with stylus as well. Check how HKTDC uses screen cleaners for promotion.
3. Promotional Pens as Phone Holders
This kind of pen seems to look pretty regular, until you notice that the slot on the lid is designed specially to serve as holder stand for your mobile device. Can be used upright while you are at work so you can see your notifications. Great for watching videos in portrait mode as well. Workable with various models of cellphones.
4. Pens with Headphone plug
This mini-pen has one more not so obvious function: it serves as anti dust plug which protects your device — cellphone, tablet, MP3-player — from getting the dust into the headphone plug. This brand new product in promotional industry is now getting an extreme popularity in Asia. Perfect for promotions of low marketing budget.
5. Promotional Eco-pens
