"Animals" Z-Grip Pens by Zebra Pen out now!

My Dear Friends,

Pens are scarce in my house.  My boyfriend is a pen chewer.  Yeah, it's super irritating too.  I go to grab a pen and there's chew marks and it's all torn up...it's not cool.  When Zebra Pen sent me the awesome new "Animals" collection in their Z-Grip series, I was thrilled right off the bat!  Why, you ask?  Because he's not going to steal & chew on the pretty pens!  He only chews on uni-sex type pens, and these are safe because they're glamorous & girly! 

Legend has it that Mr. Ishikawa, (the founder of Zebra Co. Ltd.), wanted a company name that would be memorable but also appropriate for their export business to other countries. He took an English/Japanese dictionary and, opening it Japanese style from the back, started with the “Z” words. He stopped at “Zebra”.  While doing research, he found that zebras are gentle animals with a strong family herding instinct.  This was an important attribute, as he wanted to build a business in which both the employees and customers were all part of a family-like culture.  Zebra Pen offers a vast line of writing instruments including highlighters, mechanical pencils, gel rollers, ball-point and correction pens.

My first impression of the pens was obviously "He won't chew these!" but then I realized that the pen itself was well built, stylish & most importantly...it writes well!  I can't stand pens that don't flow well or the ink skips or the pen tip tears the paper...  These pens have none of those bad attributes.  The Z-Grip line is Zebra Pen's #1 seller, and at ARV $3.75 per pack, they're very affordable!  They feature a ribbed ribber grip that supplies comfort and balance in writing and a black 1.0 mm medium point. 

Zebra Pen products can be found nationwide at Staples, Office Max, Office Depot, Walmart, K-Mart, and more.  You may also shop online via their online store!
