Places to Distribute Your Branded Pens


Branded pens are commonly used as a marketing tool because they are easy to design and are cheaper than other forms of marketing. They are also easy to distribute and are functional. Here some of the places where you should distribute your branded pens:

Your company headquarters

Start from within. Disseminate the branded pens in your offices or branches. Remember that branded pens are not only promotional materials as they may also serve as rewards for your loyal clients or outstanding employees. You may offer a pen during a transaction, especially when a client is about to sign or complete some forms and ask him/her to keep it. You may also offer the branded pens to people who are just enquiring about your services, so that they may remember your company even after they have left.

Trade fairs

One of the best places (or events) to distribute your branded pens is in an event that allows entrepreneurs to showcase their products and services. Usually, people who go to these events are interested in the theme of the event, which means that there is a great possibility that they could be your future clients. You must also try to converse or greet the client when giving out the branded pens. That way, they will be able to incorporate a good impression of your brand.


This is the part of the city where you are able to see people from different walks of life which means your marketing strategy will be able to reach a wide range of demographics. Of course, being able to reach various people could open up a lot of opportunities for your company. You may consider installing a small post similar to trade fairs. If there are certain restrictions on marketing material distribution in the city, coordinate with local authorities and comply with their requirements.

Why Choose a Functional Promotional Material like Branded Pens?

Come to think of it. More functional gifts are used more often than disposable or simply displayable ones; same as with promotional materials. Companies that produce more handy and useable promotional things are more remembered. The promotional stunt of the company with the use of items should not stop upon distribution. The more useful the items are, the more they will be for keeps.

One of the most classic yet very functional promotional pieces is branded pens. People in all classes and locations use pens on a daily basis. Whether your target audience are students, employees, businessmen, or even house buds, they would love to receive free branded pens. Choose a classic style of pen with a variety of colours to fit everyone’s taste if your company or office has a general target market.


If your target market are the students, better choose Calypso pens with different colours. Preteens and teens love trendy stuff with playful colors that’s why they would really keep your printed Calypso pens. Another option for all student levels is a dynamic highlighter pen. Students use highlighters more often than any other groups because of their exam reviewers and books.


On the other hand, if your target market covers professionals and businessmen, it would be perfect to choose Agent Stylus Pens or Enterprise Pens. Agent Stylus pens are simply colourful with stylus at the end – suitable for people who necessarily use smart phones and tablets on a day-to-day basis. Enterprise pens are also to be considered because of its very elegant and business-like style. More professionals prefer the Enterprise Pens because they are top of the line.


                When talking about the general public, it is best to choose Curvy Pens or Festival Eco Pens. Curvy Pens are classically styled pens that never go out of style. Choose a variety of colours and for sure your branded pens will be very visible in schools, offices, establishments, and elsewhere. Festival Eco Pens are perfect if your company or office has an environmental advocacy since they are made from biodegradable cornstarch. You just don’t promote your brand but you also contribute to the conservation of our nature. Festival Eco Pens also have three variations of colors that make them more desirable for often usage.

All these 6 types of pens have a variety of prices depending on the materials used for them. However, there is no need to worry because Micromagnetics offers very low prices for your printed pens.

Picking your Promotional Materials

Many forms of advertising serve as boulevards for companies to reach their target audiences. Traditional marketing would require you to make use of TV, radio, print and web. This is seriously pricey and unfeasible for budding entrepreneurs, most especially to those who cater only to a specific place. Nevertheless, entrepreneurs can still advertise without TV, radio, print and web — and that is through handing out promotional materials to their prospective clients and even employees. But this strategy will only work if your materials are:

  1. Noticeable. Use different shapes and colours for your material. Remember that you have to be unique. Choose the type of promotional material that can be seen by people. Do you know that fridge magnets have the lowest cost per impression? Choosing a promotional material that can be seen for 10 to 12 times a day by people is not a bad idea.
  2. Of good quality. Remember that your giveaways tell something about your business. Be sure that your materials are not faulty because it will reflect your business. Your promotional materials should be seen the way you want your companies to be seen. Long lasting promotional materials will not only give your audience the right impression of your company; such can also help you in cutting your cost.
  3. Fitted for the perfect audience. Successful businesses know their public. You can also make different kinds of promotional materials depending on your target audiences. You don’t want your promotional materials to just be junked by people. Make sure that your products are useful to your audience.

Promotional items surely help companies to make other people recognize their brand. But sometimes instead of using the promotional items, people just junk them or stock them or simply not use them. Other additional approaches that can be considered are the following:

  • Inserting of coupons. Maximize your promotional materials through coupons. Coupons are very much appreciated by people because who doesn’t love discounts? Nobody, right?
  • Inclusion of useful information. Instead of just putting your logo on your well-designed promotional material, try including informational idea to your print so that people will use your giveaways more often.

The things written above are just the basics of how you can make your promotional material an effective tool to market your company. However, we do understand that you want a more specialized approach in reaching your audiences. We are happy to say that we have an in house design service team that could solve your problem. Contact us and we will be more than happy to collaborate with you in making the best promotional item that will best suit your company.
