However much we might hate to see them, the back to school ads have started. Some of you just finished the last school year and some of us are half way done and others of you are nearly ready for the next year. Wherever you fall on that scale, you'll want to know about these pens that I just discovered. Most teachers I know are suckers for great office supplies, I am one of those suckers. This pen is going to be my go to pen for writing notes and such.
The best thing about these pens? They are manufactured in Germany, but are distributed by one company here in the U.S. that is women owned and operated. They also prefer to hire individuals with special needs that might not otherwise find employment. Those facts alone about this distribution company make this purchase a feel good one.
One of the best things is that there are several different points to choose from, so you can go with the type you like best. The Porous Point Pen is much like a felt tip pen that many of you use. However, it's very thin at 0.8 mm. The wider barrel makes it a dream to hold as you write.

The Slider Edge Ballpoint Pen writes very smoothly. It has a triangular shaped barrel which I loved because I love the Ticonderoga triangle pencils. The cap fits snuggly on the end so you won't lose it.
Also in the ballpoint family are the Slider Basic XB,
Slider Ballpoint Pen ,
and Slider Memo Pens which come in several colors and would be great for color coding or correcting.
They all write wonderfully, you just have to choose the style of barrel that fits your likes best and then get one!
Happy back to school shopping!
