Pens and Highlighters

There are a variety of pens one can use that can help make writing or anything exciting. Gel pens, different color regular ink pens and others are available at your local mass merchandiser to purchase. There are plenty of choices on highlighters, too. There are many different colors to choose from. Purple might not be a popular highlighter color, but they do sell them as a highlighter. Companies can personalize pens for your company or organization as well, or if you need them for someone who just loves pens.


There are basically two kinds of pencils; traditional and mechanical. The traditional ones you might remember from grade school; yellow and had the #2 on them to indicate they were the right pencils you needed. These also come in great designs and other colors besides yellow. It depends on the company, though. Mechanical pencils are pretty new within the last century or two. They are preferred by many, since you don’t have to take the time to sharpen them each time they break. With a mechanical pencil, you can just push a button and more lead comes out. This is a great invention for those who like them.
