Fine writing implements with your personal inscription
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
Black, white or Pantone spot colours can be used. We use one-colour printing. If you opt for one of the spot colours, there are many strong and colourful shades to choose from. It is important that the choice of colour for the print job is clearly defined and the tone value is 100 %, for example, “Pantone 295 C”. Therefore, halftones or colour rasters are not suitable for printing on ballpoint pens. Transparent areas are not possible either.
For the printing of your texts or slogans the following print areas are available on the shaft of the ballpoint pen:
- Simply: 45 x 5 mm in 1/0 spot colour or black
- Silversurfer: 30 x 8 mm or 40 x 7 mm in 4/0 CMYK
- Touchscreen: 40 x 5 mm in 1/0 spot colour or black
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.
