Every year around this time I get nostalgic about the days of back to school shopping. I looked forward to picking out new clothes for the upcoming school year, but I enjoyed selecting my school supplies even more! Maybe I was a weird kid, but I loved organizing my fresh paper, unused folders and binders, and brand new pens into my backpack for the first time. I still get really excited about school (now office) supplies and I’m always on the lookout for something new or unique for my collection.
For instance, there’s something about a pen that writes just right (ha!) that I love, and I think there are many people out there who share that sentiment. I often find myself giving gifts from the office supply genre (see my previous post on custom sticky notes
) and pens are no exception! A nice pen makes a great hostess gift, or welcome gift for a new colleague, and is a thoughtful addition to a thank you note for a friend or business partner. You could even create a “just for you” customized back to school gift pack for the kids’ first day of class. Combine it with custom stationery for a larger package or put your business name and contact information on it as a marketing tool for current and potential customers.
Luckily, FedEx Office®
is now offering custom pens
with the option to upload your own design, use one of the hundreds available online or enter your own text. There are different pen types, color options and a variety of fonts so it’s easy to find something for any use or personality, from an important business contact to the new college grad starting their first “real” job.
