Banner pen makers diversify lineups, improve OEM services


With the rise of custom orders, multifunction releases and quirky exteriors dominate.



  • Multifunctionality adds value: The latest banner pens from China integrate extra features. Banner sticks with scales can be used as rulers, while sharp-edged ones serve as letter openers. Several releases have lanyard attachments, which may also accommodate logos.
  • Color & shape diversity: Suppliers offer pens in a range of hues, including black, blue, yellow, red, orange and pink. Two-toned models have the lower and upper parts of the barrel in varying colors, or grips in a different shade. Companies are also providing pen clips in novelty contours.
  • Faster delivery, lower MOQ: Makers accept rush and low-volume custom orders. They are streamlining OEM terms. The delivery time has been reduced from 40 days to less than one month. MOQs are 1,000 pieces or fewer from the previous 3,000.
  • Price increase: Quotes are expected to climb 10 to 15 percent. Due to uncertainty in the yuan’s value and the cost of ABS and AS in coming months, suppliers are pushing up prices to avoid losses. Meanwhile, inflation in China has caused labor outlay and other expenses to surge 30 percent.
