Mad as a March Hare
Don't you just love that first flash of spring? The colourful flowers, baby animals, branded pens? (the onset of March Hare madness perhaps). This week we have been mostly talking about pens, in all shapes, sizes and colours. Did you know that the first patent for a ballpoint pen was issued on October 30, 1888, to John J. Loud, who was a leather tanner? Well you do now.
If, like us, you're currently in a 'pen' place, then start by thinking:
- Which features of your company do you need to promote - the logo, a website address, a telephone number, a tag line etc.
- Will these details be engraved, embossed, stickered or printed on?
- Is it destined to be a disposable piece or a treasured and coveted prize?
Horace said that "the pen is the tongue of the mind" and by jove our clients brains have been chatty in recent weeks. We've been so pen happy that we've started a new Pinterest board - to inspire and delight. We'd also love to hear about your favourite writing implement so do drop us a line, leave a wee comment or send us a photo. Perhaps it's time for a revival of the chubby stick crayon......
