Pen, Pencils and Writing Supplies

Pens, pencils and graphic supplies are no less important for your office supplies procurement. Finding the right supplier is essential to save you money and maximise productivity.
It might sound trivial but finding a balance between usability, quality and longevity of your writing supplies would be key in keeping office costs down.

Choosing a good range and variation of pens, pencils, ball point pens, markers, highlighters, sharpeners, erasers and other writing supplies is of great importance.

Try to remember that people in different levels in the company might have different needs and what works best for staff does not satisfy/apply to senior management.
Ordering writing supplies is like any other type of office procurement. It should always include a head count, an estimation of every day use and pens being lost or broken.
