Staples has a 8pk or really nice pink pens called "Write For Hope" Pink with silver trim, They have tip-to-clip grip. Black ink. really nice. Saving them for next HWC promotion.

80cents per package goes to "Ctiy of Hope" the pens cost $7.49, kinda high, that's $6.69 after donation, bringing the pens to 84cents each. Not to bad

I really like the pens, but IMO it's way too much $$ to spend on pens for a show. I bought a pack for myself, but I buy the black standard ballpoint BIC pens for my shows. As long as they work and are inexpensive I'm in- every show I always loose a pen or two, so $0.84/pen for me is way too much $$!

I've started using red ink pens for my shows. My MIL always gets me a bazillion of them during back to school sales to grade with. I typically don't use red ink to grade papers, so I throw them in my PC bag. In August they are like a quarter a pack, and 9 times out of 10, no one will steal a red pen.

I buy the cheap bic pens as well. I bought clear labels and printed my website on them and put them on all the pens. Now if anyone accidentally walks away with a pen, at least they have my info too.

I started this last year as well. I use the Paperwrite or whatever they are called as I've had better luck with those then the non name branded. I take the avery address label, put my name, phone number, email, website, and title on my label. Like you- if they walk away with it (or I give it away at a store for the cashier to use) they have my info!

Its a great- CHEAP- way to get our info out! :)
