I Like Bamboo Pens

Panda Pen Offers Six Color Accents

Got to tell you, I am really starting to like writing with bamboo pens.

I have been using the Kiva Ballpoint for about five months now –  it seems I use whatever pen I find in the office until I lose it – and I really like the feel of the bamboo in the hand. So when we got the new Panda Pen from Hit Promo I decided to take it for a test drive. I like it.

The Hit Promo Panda Pen is not an expensive pen, it runs around $0.55 EQP with one color imprint and $0.85 for laser engrave. That price puts it in line with the recycled paper barrel pens everyone seems to gravitate to when they think eco-pen, and which I do not like because the paper barrel always seems to snap when I sit down with the pen in my pocket. Plus you cannot stir your coffee with a paper barrel pen.

The Panda Pen offers a great promo pen idea for arborists, nurseries, anyone doing bamboo flooring or fences, even the local sushi house, maybe packaged with a coupon and set of bamboo chopsticks.

It is also a great idea for spa and other leisure activities because as a material bamboo is more natural to the touch, I would even say more calming to the touch, than plastic or metal pens. Bamboo just feels good.

I also like the way bamboo takes a logo impression, as a grass with the character of a wood, artwork can be directly laser engraved onto a bamboo pen’s body.

The Panda Pen is a plunger pen design and comes with black ink. The pen’s nub to plunger size is 5 ½” H with an imprint area of 1 ¾” W x ⅝” H with silk-screen, and  1 ¼” W x ⅛” with laser engrave. The plastic color accents on the Panda Pen are made from recycled materials which are marked with a very subtle recycled symbol. So minus the spring, ink tube, and nib, this pen is all recycled or sustainable materials.

For $0.55 EQP I really do not know of a better sustainable pen on the market. Great job Hit of making an affordable bamboo writer.
