There are several types of promotional pens available in the market today, some of which are as follows:
Rollerballs and Ballpoints
Rollerball pens make use of water-based ink that will run even when wet. These pens have a special ball mechanism and require less pressure when used in writing. On the other hand, ballpoint pens make use of oil-based ink that will not run when damped or wet. They also require less pressure and can be ideally used with carbon papers.
Stick, Click, and Twist
Stick pens, which are the most common promotional pen design, simply have barrels and caps. Click pens use a clicking mechanism to retract or expose the pen’s point while twist pens make use of a twist mechanism. The latter two pen designs can also serve as stress relief toys.
