People around the world say 'the time of the pen is over'. Walk in to any bar across the country and you’ll see pens, pencils and markers of all shapes and sizes drowning their sorrows and talking about the good old days. There’s no room for the pen in the age of the smartphone, laptop and tablet. That’s what the doubters are saying.

But at Pentel, they refuse to live in a world where a musician can’t write down lyrics on a napkin, or an artist can’t sketch-out their latest idea on a scrap of paper, or where one person isn’t able to draw a comedy moustache on another person. We shouldn't have to! Technology is brilliant, but the pen is your own personal tool of creativity. It’s more intimate and expressive. Let’s celebrate the pen!
