What are the hottest promotional pen trends in 2019?
When you think of classic promotional giveaways, pens are one of the most popular choices. Pens are still one of the best selling promotional products year over year and the industry keeps innovating.
To keep up with the tech savvy world and changing tastes of consumers, we've seen all sorts of trendy pens the last few years. Now that these trends are a little more mature, we're starting to see some beautiful pens with great features worth taking a look at today.
Below are a few trends (and corresponding pens) for 2019, that I think/hope/predict are going to be hot sellers. So if you find yourself looking for a truly unique pen to stand out in a sea of promotional pens, these are my recommendations.
And as always, please let me know if I can help you place an order!
Pens That Light Up in New Ways!
The last few years we've seen a trend to incorporate LED lighting into promotional Pens. This year we're seeing the evolution of lighting. Two of my favorite uses of lighting this year include the Geode, which uses small crystals to create a really cool effect when the LED hits them. The other unique pen I'm seeing is the Lumitron which has a transparent grip that lights up along with your imprint! Very cool stuff.
Triangular Barrels for Triple Imprints!
Traditional pens are round, which make it difficult to screen or imprint on the barrel. The last few years, we've seen improvements in how large of an imprint can be on these pens with revolution techniques. This year I've seen a crop of triangular shaped barrels on pens which not only help with ergonomics, but allow for up to 3 individual imprints. 3X imprint area and a unique ergonomic shape make these a hot 2019 trend!
Full Color Imprints on Metal Pens!
The last few years we've started to see full color imprinting as a standard option on plastic pens. This year we're seeing full-color imprinting available on soft touch and white metal pens and I think that's pretty great. Along with the new models below I'm even seeing popular older pens like the "Zonita Stylus" which I featured in "My 4 Favorite Premium Promotional Pens" get full-color imprint options too!
Soft-touch Barrels for Writing Comfort!
Soft touch rubberized coating is another trend I'm seeing become very popular in 2019. We started to see this last year, and in 2019 we're seeing more pens and even full-color imprinting available on these executive metal pens. These look and FEEL great and are perfect premium giveaways!
