The ballpoint pen is available in three versions: Simply, Silversurfer and Touchscreen. All three are approximately 14-cm-long plastic ballpoint pens that activate the nib by a click mechanism. The rubberised tip of the ballpoint pen Touchscreen can be used as a capacitive stylus while the nib is deactivated. All three versions have a soft-grip-handle and an ergonomic shape to ensure comfortable handling when writing. The ballpoint pens Simply and Touchscreen come with a blue X-20 refill, while Silversurfer has a big blue refill.
Thanks to a practical clip, the ballpoint pen can be attached to a shirt or jacket pocket.
The ballpoint pens are available in:
- Simply: White/Blue, White/Red and White/Black
- Silversurfer: Silver/Blue, Silver/Red and Silver/Black
- Touchscreen: Blue, Red and Anthracite
This is how the ballpoint pens are printed
The Simply and Touchscreen ballpoint pens can be printed in full tone or black. The Silversurfer can be printed in CMYK. The print is therefore 1/0-colour or 4/0-colour. If you opt for the special colours, you can choose from many strong and colourful shades. It is important that the colour selection for the print job is clearly defined and that the tonal value is 100 percent, for example "Pantone 295 C". For this reason, halftone values or colour gradients are not suitable for printing on ballpoint pens. Transparent areas are also not possible. With the proven CMYK four-colour process, you are very free to choose your graphics. From the photo over the slogan up to the logo we can print all possible pictures on your Silversurfer ballpoint pen.
When creating the print file, make sure that you make the data available in PDF format. Text must be created as vectors. To ensure the best possible print result, lines must have a minimum thickness of 0.2 mm and the text itself must be converted into paths. Also, make sure that the font has a height of at least 1 mm. We recommend avoiding serif fonts because the serifs often do not appear on printed ballpoint pens.
