Do the Write Thing
It's no accident that long ago pens and pencils were deemed "writing instruments." The word "instrument" might not seem applicable to something as soundless as a ballpoint pen (unless you count that clicking noise), but as a means of sharing thought and feeling, the pen is the most powerful instrument of all. For countless day-to-day activities, your writing instrument is your most valuable sidekick (they say it's mightier than a sword, you know). And while we don't suggest that you team up with the Avengers while wielding only a pen, there are still plenty of things that require a strong and sensible writing instrument:
• Adding milk to the grocery list
• Writing down the phone number for the babysitter
• Taking notes on Einstein's Theory of Relativity
• Doodling a mustache on a magazine ad
Make sure your clients are ready for all of life's small battles, with the top-notch writing instruments below.

Whenever we have an important document to sign or thank-you cards to write, all of our pens seem to go missing. The Bettoni Ballpoint Pen from Logomark is one writing instrument we store in a safe place. The wide-body, solid brass, twist-mechanism pen features a high-gloss lacquered cap and barrel and etched gunmetal trims.

Stic 'Em Up
The Clic Stic Antimicrobial from Norwood and BIC Graphic proves that the pen really is mightier than the sword—when it comes to slaying germs, anyway. The pen features an EPA-registered antimicrobial additive molded into the plastic, which suppresses the growth of bacteria, algae, fungus and mold. It has a break-resistant pocket clip and is available in black, navy, blue or red. White trim also is available.
