The types of promotional pens
Rollerball pens also use balls to apply ink. This ink is a water-based ink that provides a smoother writing experience, but the ink dries faster, so these pens usually have a separate cap that needs to be used.
Ballpoint pens are easily the most popular choice in the promotional space. They work by using oil-based ink to flow through a metal ball and then apply it to the surface. They usually have a clicking or twisting mechanism because the ink does not dry out easily.
Highlighters usually use felt tip or wax and have a bright ink color. They dry quickly, allowing the text or objects below to stand out without covering them. These are great for highlighting important parts of text or notes.
Gel pens use pigments suspended in water-based gels. This makes the ink vibrant and precise. However, these inks tend to skip more and the ink takes longer to dry.
The stylus has a stylus tip or stylus function. They can be used with touch screen devices such as tablets or mobile phones. These types of pens usually have a ballpoint pen writing mechanism, and are available in plastic or metal.
The marker uses its compressed soft tip to apply ink. Marking inks are usually permanent and can be applied to most surfaces such as glass, wood, plastic, and metal.
