Ballpoint Pens

Ballpoint pens are valuable tools for a wide variety of professions and tasks. Staples has a selection of retractable and capped pens in a range of designs and colors, available in quantities ranging from a single pen to bulk orders.

Consider the Many Uses of a Ballpoint Pen
These pens are a reliable choice for any professional or student seeking an efficient writing device that can accomplish a variety of tasks. Teachers can use them for grading, filling out forms, and writing. A variety pack of retractable pens is valuable for teachers looking to use different colors for various activities. Students will find value in pens using Easy Glide ink technology, which allows smooth and comfortable use for tasks such as taking notes. Some pens even have rubber grips for added comfort when writing essays or taking tests.

Ballpoint pens are also valuable in a range of professions outside of education. Bold points are useful for signing official documents, and a collection of various styles is crucial in office settings and any environment where writing might be required.

Choose a Ballpoint Pen That Fits the Intended Use
Medium point styles are ideal for use in situations that require smooth and consistent writing. Bold point options are useful in writing where the words need to make a noticeable impression on the page and remain easy to see. Fine tip pens are also available, produce 0.7-millimeter lines that are ideal for consistently legible writing. Medium points create one-millimeter lines, appearing smooth and readable on the page, while a bold point produces thicker 1.6-millimeter lines.

Many styles have pocket clips which can be attached to a shirt, pants pocket or a notebook, useful for keeping up with a loose pen in a fast paced environment. Pens with colorful outer shells can be easily organized based on the task they are used for. Those with translucent outer shells enable users to see how much ink remains, while styles with solid exteriors are resistant to damage. Both retractable and capped pens allow users to cover the tip for protection and to conserve ink.

What Colors do Ballpoint Pens Come In?
Staples stocks a variety of ink colors besides the standard black, red and blue. Colors such as magenta, orange and lime are offered for those looking to take vivid notes or write in different colors for certain tasks. Variety packs contain a selection of these colored inks, ideal for those looking for diverse choices. Most pens have exteriors that match the ink color so users can easily differentiate between them.

Is it Possible to Buy Packs of Multiple Ballpoint Pens?
While it is possible to purchase a single pen, packs are offered for those looking to stock an office or supply for school. Staples has a selection of pack options from five to twenty-five and even sixty pen packs, so shoppers can browse and choose the amount that fits their needs.

Are Refillable and Disposable Pens Both Available?
Staples offers pens in both disposable and refillable varieties. Disposable styles allow users to write until the ink runs out, while refillable allow users to reuse the same pen multiple times.
