A while back I had a glasses case that would rotate colors when you spun it around. For years, that little case would distract me (and all of my classmates) during Algebra. However, I never saw another case like that nor any other accessory in the following years.
Until today. These nifty little pen/calculator sets come in the exact same type of container, but smaller and more convenient. The Illusion Series brand also puts out business card holders, paper clip containers and sewing kits that work the same way. Now the next generation will have ample distraction during math- an essential to growing up.
It doesn’t look like much- but I promise you, this one‘s worth reading about.
MoMa makes this promotional pen using gravity instead of click tops or screw tops. All you do is turn it rightside up and (hello!) out comes the tip. I was skeptical at first, how is gravity going to keep the tip of my pen down? After all, I’m an incredibly hard writer. Just take one look at the lines etched in my desk and you’ll see just what kind of wear and tear I put on my pens.
But this one held up. It didn’t jiggle or push back up into the barrel when I was dotting my ‘I’s.
If you like toothpaste and you like pens- here’s the cultivation of your wildest dreams!
I love how odd this pen is, it literally looks like toothpaste. Yet you can write with it. I’m not sure if the tube is hard or solid but either way it’s one of the more entertaining novelty pens I’ve ever seen.
After a girl collects so many pens, it’s time to figure out where to put them all. Sure, I have lots of drawers and cups to stuff pens in, but how dull is that?
Instead, I think I’ll start using my pens to impale miniature red men. Repeatedly. It’s a much more entertaining way of keeping my favorites handy.
Like this DeadFred holder (blood splatters not included). I’m a huge fan. I almost feel like I need to get one of these nifty promotional coffin pens just to top off the ‘dead’ look.
“In many countries the press is censored every day” reads the standard looking highlighter from IGFM. Most people wouldn’t take a second glance at the little yellow stick with censorship information printed on it. After all, promotional pens and highlighters are in no short supply at press conferences.
This particular organization decided to come up with something that would really grab attention. So they replaced the yellow ink with black, then they handed out the highlighters with no prior explanation.
During the conference when a member of the press tried to highlight a sentence in their notes a thick, black censorship line appeared rather than the bright, cheery yellow one that would be expected.
That drilled the point home. Reporters all over the world are censored every day, and it’s a lot worse than a silly black line in your notes.
For a funny story that’s (semi) related check out this Onion article.
Check out this pen! It’s totally weird looking and I love it. It’s designed to eliminate hand cramps when writing for long periods of time. Instead of using your fingers to firmly support a pen, this one allows you to use the weight of your hand to effortlessly hold the pen steady. It’s a natural, stress-eliminated posture for easy writing.
Plus, it doesn’t matter if you’re a lefty or a righty, it works for everyone.
I haven’t bought mine yet but I’m super excited about the idea. You can get them included in a promotional wireless mouse/pen set as well. Great for office gifts or raffle prizes!
