5. Sustainable Promotional Pens

Sustainable pens are essential when working from home. But you need to store them in good condition. Store them somewhere that is not too hot or too dry, as this will speed up the drying process. Ensure that they are stored vertically rather than horizontally. If you think the ink in your pens has run out, it may be just the ink directly behind the ballpoint that has dried. To fix this, simply run the end of the pen under boiling water, or soak in alcohol.
