Pens are a universal presence in every home, office, and classroom. However, sometimes you may have a need for something with a little more convenience to save time and deliver a better writing experience. That's when a retractable pen makes sense as one of the most versatile writing instruments you can find.

Retractable ballpoint pens come in a variety of colors, styles, and quantities, so they are a great option if you’re looking to buy in bulk for an office or classroom. They’re also a favorite for people who write on the go and want to ensure that the tip of their pen is protected and the ink secured. If you’re in the market for a retractable ballpoint pen, keep reading to learn more about them!

What are Retractable Pens?

Retractable pens are writing utensils that can be opened and closed with the click of a button located at the top or side of the pen. These pens are spring loaded, and when the button of the pen is pressed, the ballpoint tip is pushed forward or backward. Retractable pens help to protect the tip of the pen by housing it inside of a small chamber where it can’t come into contact with other surfaces. So, you won’t have to worry about ink accidently spilling out or drying up.

What are the Best Retractable Ballpoint Pens?

There are a variety of retractable pens to choose from, so it’s important to think about the exact features you’re looking for before making a decision on the best retractable ballpoint pen for your needs. Below are some questions to ask yourself to make this process easier.

Do you want a refillable retractable pen?

Refillable retractable ballpoint pens are popular because they are a much more sustainable option that can be used for years. So, if you love your pen and never want to see it go, a refillable pen would be a great choice for you.

On the other hand, if you want to try out a new style of pen every now and again, there are plenty of nonrefillable retractable ballpoint pens to choose from. These pens are affordable and can be thrown out or recycled once the ink has run out.

Which pen point type do you prefer in a retractable pen?

Knowing which pen point type you personally prefer will make a big difference in which retractable pens you should buy. If you are someone who likes detailed, thin lines, go for a retractable ballpoint fine pen. Alternatively, if you want your lines to be thick and easy-to-read, choose one of the retractable ballpoint bold pens. Or, if you like your pens somewhere in the middle, opt for the retractable ballpoint medium pens.

What colors do you normally use?

Retractable pens come in just about every color imaginable, so we recommend thinking about the project you’ll be using them for and going from there. For instance, If you want to bullet journal or draw with your pens, a pack of assorted retractable ballpoint pens could be a good option for you. If you like to keep your pens more simple and professional, black retractable ballpoint pens or blue retractable ballpoint pens could be the way to go. Or, if you're planning on using your retractable pens for a variety of projects, pick up a pack that has both brightly colored pens and black ink pens.
