You are probably not aware of how many personalised pens you have lying around at your office or at home. They tend to get under your radar, right until the moment you are looking for a company or brand. That is when all of a sudden you remember you have a pen somewhere that carries the name of a company or service you need. A custom made pen usually doesn’t need many adjustments over the years, unless you design your personalised pen in the UK for a specific event. A seminar, business milestone or birth can be such an occasion where you want to add a date or title besides the (company) name. Camaloon’s custom designed pens are made of different materials:
One of the most well-known pen brands is BIC, and everyone knows the familiar feel of a BIC pen once you take them between your fingers and thumb. If you prefer an even more personal gift than just any personalised pen, then consider the extra element that personalised engraved pens offer. Having a personal message engraved in a fine pen can turn out to be a permanent memory of a specific moment in your life. That promotion you got, your retirement or your recovery from an illness deserves an everlasting object so it will never be forgotten.
A custom engraved pen makes perfect sense then. It is your favourite object on your desk at the office or at home, and looking at it takes you back to that defining moment in life. It fills your heart with emotions, and aren’t all promotional items about moving someone’s mind or soul in one way or another?
Not every self-employed person or marketing department has unlimited resources for PR, so naturally Camaloon offers basic and cheap personalised pens, as well as more expensive or luxurious ones. It all depends on your budget and goals. You can even imagine ordering different pens for different purposes. A pen pot with cheap personalised pens will do a great job at a job market stand or in the waiting room at your company’s reception desk. Your order will be in bulk and handing out these personalised pens may often go unnoticed.
Other pens are more suitable at different times. These pens can be strategically positioned on a large oval desk during the crucial phase of a business deal, or they can be a more thoughtful item for a gift box for Christmas, birth, a wedding, to celebrate 12,5 years with the company or to say goodbye to someone who leaves the company after retirement.
Every type of pen fits a certain meeting between a company and different types of people.
Does anyone really need a personalised pen? No, you can have lots of pens without any commercial purpose, but they do the trick and that’s why people love them anyway. If you visit a car dealer to buy a new car, have a job interview at that multinational, or go to a business conference or motivation speech, there are bound to be personalised pens bought in bulk. No way that there will be this bulk box with 500 pens on the table, but one or two with the message that you can keep it after signing are enough to impress you. People are always happy when they get something for free! From a marketing point of view these pens do two things:
A name, logo or specific design is what matters when getting your pen personalised. The process of how to personalise a pen is plain and simple: you select the pen (or pencil) that you like best and that fits your company’s policy or promotional objective, you add the details you want printed on them, and then you order and wait for your parcel with custom designed pens to be delivered.
Now that you have learned of Camaloon’s selection of pens and your target group for this pen, you automatically know that personalised business pens will do an excellent job of promoting your products or services. And the main aspect to keep in mind is that these personalised business pens are not just for large companies. Even a roofing company with only three employees can capture the moment by giving free pens to (potential) customers.
What matters is that people’s minds wants to be rewarded for remembering something, and that is what makes your personalised pen such a big hit. They don’t necessarily know that your company will do the best job, but when they start looking for a roofer, they remember that there is a pen with a roofer’s logo and telephone number in their drawer. Making that connection is the ultimate proof of how promotional items work in customer behaviour.
Once you have chosen your pen and custom designed it, personalised pens will be sent throughout the UK. Depending on the order’s total amount, you will either pay for shipping or it can be free. See conditions for free delivery during the ordering process. It might be a good idea to add a few other useful promotional items, like personalised magnets or personalised keyrings to be eligible for free shipping.
Personalised pens make the best gifts
Companies big and small and even individuals invest in personalised pens as gifts. Two examples: Your best friend or the love of your life decides to celebrate your anniversary by ordering a custom made pen with engraving. This pen is a keepsake for the rest of your life. Your boss has persuaded the whole department to take part in a competition, and the winner gets a gift basket with several funny or handy gifts for the office or at home. The basket is filled with some smaller items, like a personalised card holder and personalised planner, but there are also larger gifts like personalised lunch boxes and personalised sweaters.
Nothing beats your efforts if you opt for cheap personalised pens with no minimum order and your logo or slogan on it, although some of Camaloon’s pens are subject to a minimum order of 25. However, BIG pens must be ordered with a volume of at least 500 pens, but special pens can also be ordered one pen at a time. You will find out the minimum order when selecting your type of pen and completing the design.
If you would like to have your personalised pen engraved, then this can only be ordered for aluminium, chrome, bamboo or wooden pens. Your pen doesn’t need engraving but printing? Then you have three options depending on the effect you are after:
If an employee is extremely important for the company or someone has gone above and beyond to close that business deal, you might want to consider gifts that are a bit more meaningful than ‘just’ a pen. Why not take a look at our collection of other products that show respect and appreciation? Take a personalised notebook and pen or pen set for example. These would be lovely items for your personal assistant or secretary who always takes good care of your minutes, reservations, travel plans and other personal aspects.
Don’t like the look of a pen set without a box or case? We can imagine that some official meetings require a little more, and that is where the personalised pen case or pen and pencil set comes in. Make the set match by applying the same engravings or same coloured printing, and show your client that you value him, your meetings and what will come out of them. Memories last a long time when you give something tangible to remember you by.
Upon arriving at a conference you often get a personalised bag with not only a pen, but also a conference holder. It will make your organisation of the conference stand out compared to others. Buying in bulk is the most cost effective way to go for event organisers.
You don’t have to overcomplicate your exposure with an extensive selection of promotional items and merchandise. Just start with personalised pens as a gift and work from there. If you want to know if your pen does the job? Just ask a new customer how he found your front door, phone number or website. Often it’s the little things that count the most, and pens definitely belong in the category of effective tools to promote your business or cause.
There is no limit to what you can do with a pen, and personalised pens are not just for businesses. A whole new buyer’s segment that has become more and more popular is the personalised pens for teachers. They can be helpful for deans or coaches, for example, who want their students to know how to contact them.
Besides pens being a useful tool for teachers and coaches, there is this milestone at the end of everyone’s school years that deserves a personalised graduation pen. And at a younger age personalised children pens can come in handy if you want every pupil to learn how to write with one particular pen used throughout the entire school. This is the pen you also hand out during tests (and take back in), so you are absolutely sure no one is cheating.
Another specific occasion for handing out pens can be a life changing event, like a wedding, the birth of a baby or your gender change. Show your guests how much they mean to you by designing personalised wedding pens with the date of your wedding on them, or order blue or pink pens with the name and date of birth of your newborn.
Another thoughtful way of informing your friends and family of your gender change is custom designing a pen with your new name (was Paul → now Pauline) and adjusting the colour to your chosen gender (if possible). You can also let people know you prefer being addressed with they/them.
