Did You Wish Your Boss a Happy Boss’s Day?

October 17th marks the annual celebration of Boss’s Day. Several different countries around the world take part in celebrating bosses. Back in the fifties, a woman working for her father registered this day with the U.S. Chamber of Commerce to make it a national holiday. She believed that taking one day a year to show appreciation for bosses and all of the hard work they put in at the workplace was well-deserved.

Today, this holiday is more representative of strengthening the relationships between employers and employees. Having a good or bad boss can truly make or break your work experience on a daily basis. When one stops to think of the pressures of everyday life on top of managing stores, businesses, or companies that bosses consistently face, they begin to realize just how big of toll it takes on a person. Boss’s Day is the perfect excuse for an employee to express a little bit of gratitude, a simple “Thank you” suffices!

Getting a gift for your boss has never traditionally been expected, but if you do feel so inclined, Zebra Pen has got you covered. Our Steel line of pens makes for the perfect small token of appreciation. The F-701 is a heavy-duty, stainless steel pen that exudes executive. This slightly weighted pen makes for a premium writing experience. Is your boss more of a pencil person? The same great features of the F-701 can be found in its counterpart, the M-701 mechanical pencil. Check out more information about our Steel 7-series and the rest of our Steel line at: https://www.zebrapen.com/product-category/brand/steel/.

Don’t forget to wish your boss a happy Boss’s Day!

Left Handed Pens?

Life can be inconvenient if you’re left-handed.

It seems the world is designed for righties. Everyday things that a right hander takes for granted, like door handles, spiral notebooks, and can openers add a layer of inconvenience for lefties. Computer keyboards have the number keypads on the right. A left-handed driver has to reach across his body to access the cup holder. Shaking hands is awkward.

But the number-one annoyance for left-handed Americans (there are about 28 million) is writing with an ordinary ballpoint pen. A right-hander uses an easy, natural pulling motion, whereas a left-hander has to push making writing a pain, literally. Add to that the ink smearing that accompanies the pushing motion and makes a mess of things. Is it too much to ask for a left-hander’s pen?

The right pen for lefties

There is good news for lefties. Advances in ink formulations have produced fast-drying ink, like the Rapid Dry Ink Technology perfected by Zebra Pen, and featured in Sarasa® pens. The water based gel ink dries in less than a second on most surfaces, so fast that lefties can write with confidence and no smears. A Sarasa® pen glides smoothly across the page making it easier to use for everyday writing needs. Sarasa® pens come in 14 vibrant colors, too.

If you’re an ink geek, or just want to find out more about this amazing ink, visit Zebra Pen Ink Innovation. Learn about differences in ink types and how they affect writing, and bone up on pen terminology.

Of course lefties (and righties) will also want to check out Sarasa®,
which was put to the test.

Rapid dry ink – this is something left-handed people have been dreaming of since 3000 BC when writing on papyrus scrolls and reed pens was fashionable. Progress takes time, but it’s worth it, thanks to the innovators at Zebra pen.

Guide to Steel

 Looking for a great pen? You don’t have to pay a lot of money for a sturdy, well-designed pen that looks as good as it functions; one that works as hard as you do. Consider the Steel line from Zebra Pen, a collection of remarkable writing instruments that are a significant upgrade from everyday plastic pens, and they are surprisingly affordable.

These are popular pens, and for many reasons. First and foremost, the barrels are made of stainless steel—sleek, smooth, strong steel. Add in features like a comfortable grip, smooth flowing ink and easy refills, and we are talking about a special collection of pens. Whether it’s the best-selling F-301 that manages to be both lightweight and durable, or the impressive F-701, as precise as the best tool on the workbench, there is a Steel pen or pencil that is right for you. All very reasonably priced.

Like a maker of fine automobiles, the Steel Collection is numbered. Choose from the everyday 3-Series, high quality 4 Series or top-of-the line 7 series. An array of different ink colors, grips and barrel designs let you and make it your own.

Here is a detailed guide to the Zebra Pen Steel Collection.
