A Pen By The Numbers!

National Ballpoint pen Day is June 10th and we know just how to celebrate over at Gossett Marketing!

With some fun and interesting facts about pens! Such as, did you know that 95% of people, when given a new pen, write their name first? That person will, on average hang on to that pen for 6 months. That makes sense because pens have been around for over 5,000 years! Egyptians first wrote using a reed with a split end and a vegetable based ink.

More than two billion pens are manufactured here in the USA annually. A typical pen can draw a line that measures anywhere from 4,000 to 7,500 feet long? Or approximately 45,000 words. I don’t think I even know 45,000 words!

Pens continue to be a top promotional item, as over 56% of people own a branded pen. We like to refer to pens as a traveling billboard for your business! And while many hold onto pens and lose them, they are undoubtedly going to end up in the hands of someone else. Which in turn, means more exposure for that brand! So be sure, when selecting the pen that will showcase your brand, that it will be one that one will want to hold on to and be upset when they lose it!
