Cheapest place for custom logo pens with imprint

If anyone is looking for a custom-printed pen with your logo and/or phrase, here’s the place: Office Depot. For real.

A couple of days ago someone in the Museum of Contemporary Art asked me for a pen. I let him borrow one thinking it would have been really cool if I had a Spudart pen. The next day I looked at a bunch of places for logo pens, but I don’t want to spend a lot of money and I don’t want like 500 pens running around.

Most places make you pay an extra $40 for “imprint charges”. Whoa doggy, that’s about how much I would pay TOTAL for the pens. And then most places have a minimum of 250, 500, or 1000 pens to start with. Slow down there tiger!

But good ol’ Office Depot not only has a small minimum of 150 pens but there’s no setup charge or screen charge! It’s only cost me $55.50 to get ’em made!

Office Depot (150 minimum) $0.37 each. $55.50 total

In case you’re wondering, here are some of the other sites I looked at. The first number is the minimum quantity, the second is the price per pen. I’m pretty sure all these places charge extra for screens. But they don’t list it on their site.

Spudart pens! Cool! How about Spudart pencils!

technically, you’re not supposed to use pens in the MCA. Pencils are allowed because pencils can’t explode on the artwork like pens can. It’s true. I was a security guard at the MCA during the summer of 96.

The deal at Jornik Stick Pen and Journik Twister ain’t bad either. You pay an extra 17.50 to almost double the amount you would get at Office Depot.

You were a security guard in ’96!? Are you kidding? You mean I probably saw you at the MCA before I saw you try to trick me at TMS!?
