Make sure you never lose another pen from your reception desk by getting counter top pens. These types of pens tether to a base stuck to a counter or desktop. Mounted in this way, there is no chance that users will accidentally take the pen with them. You can find a wide selection of such secured pens on Staples.

Choose Between Ballpoint and Rollerball Pens
A counter top pen is similar to a regular pen except for the plastic cord or ball chain securing its base. Most of these pens are ballpoint or rollerball pens. Both types of writing instruments have rolling ball tips. Ballpoint pens have an oil-based ink while a rollerball uses water-based or gel ink. The ink from a ballpoint dries faster when applied to paper. This makes the writing instrument ideal for taking quick notes since its ink does not smudge or bleed through paper. Calligraphy pens move more easily on paper and produce wet ink strokes similar to those of fountain pens. Choose rollerball pens with gel ink if you want a counter pen that can write in other colors besides blue and black.

Features to Look for When Comparing Counter Top Pens
There are different ways to secure the base anchoring a counter pen to a desktop. Most brands offer adhesive-backed bases that stick to flat surfaces. Some also add screw mounting for those that prefer even more secure installations. If you want a counter pen, you can move quickly, choose one with a suction cup base. Some bases double as stands for their pens. These have receptacles that hold pens upright and also protect their tips from drying out. Another important factor to consider is the length of the ball chain or plastic security cord connecting a counter pen to its base. Make sure the chain or cord is long enough to use the pen from the other side of your desk.

Can You Refill a Counter Top Pen?
Yes. Many counter pens use refillable ink cartridges with manufacturers offering refills. Make sure to pick a refillable counter pen if you are going to attach the base to your desk with screws or double-sided adhesive. Some gel pens offer replacement pens in place of ink refills. These replacements snap easily onto the chains securing them to their bases.

Why Do Some Counter Top Pens Have Antimicrobial Protection?
Counter pens are shared writing instruments placed in public locations. They are more likely to host microbes than personal pens. Antimicrobial agents can stop the growth of bacteria, fungi and algae that inevitably appear on these pens. By doing this, they prevent the spread of harmful microbes, eliminate unpleasant odors and prevent discoloration and corrosion.

What Is the Typical Cord Length of Counter Top Pens?
Most counter pens have plastic cords or ball chains measuring between 22 and 26 inches. This length is perfect for most office desks. If you want a cord that extends even further, consider a counter pen attached to its base by a flexible plastic cable. This is usually a short 6-inch coil that can stretch out to over 5 feet.
