    Can you name the past 5 companies you got free pens from? If not, is it really the best thing to use for promotion? If you can name 5 easily, what did the quality of those pens tell you about the company you got them from? Were they good quality, elegant, recycled? Or a bit pony and cheap looking? What image are you going for for your company/charity?

    vista print do a pen option - i'm about to order a 'free' one so i can see the quality before ordering more - so can't comment on their quality just now - you can put a good few lines of text on and TCB are giving £5 c/b on an order,
    Donít ask what the world needs. Ask what makes you come alive, and go do it.
    Because what the world needs is people who have come alive.

    The reason for a small print run is that they will be sold in connection with the raising of funds within the year 2013 so we would like them to be dated. Each year we support a different local charity and there is no way we would be able to sell more than about 200.
    Thanks littlejaffa, will have a look at Vistaprint.

    • 9th Dec 12, 10:04 PM used to do cheap pens. I used them several years ago.

    They even let you print several lines of text, so you can add extra details, rather than just a name.
