Why Sell Pens Online?
In a digital world, you wouldn’t expect that the pen industry to thrive. However, by 2025, the pen industry is expected to grow to an estimated $24 billion. Pens make great corporate gifts for clients or employees. They can even be great as novelty gifts for birthdays or special occasions. A quality pen can sell for as much as $100 depending on the market you’re trying to reach. If you’re selling novelty pens, they can be marketed to students such as bone shaped or syringe shaped pens for medical students.
It can be hard to know which type of pens would be your best-sellers if you choose to wholesale. Having to buy bulk inventory can end up costing your business more money than it’s worth. The cost of dropshipping pens is almost comparable to the cost of wholesaling them, making dropshipping the safer option of the two. In the early stages of your business, testing different pens to your audiences is important. Fortunately, dropshipping allows you to test up to 30,000 different products on your store. Dropshipping also allows you to target a wider range of audiences as you can carry more items on your store to ensure your success.
The distributors at Oberlo offer a wide selection of pens to choose from. There are many different types of pens which include ballpoint pens, gel pens, mechanical pencils, highlighters, brush pens, colored pencils, markers, fountain pens, and so on. Distributors normally offer pens together with other stationary items or office supplies such as paper, notebooks, pencils, or even with paint supplies. Pens are typically provided in packs, sometimes with the pack containing different colors of the same pen. So, for instance it’s common to see distributors offer 12 pieces of felt tip pens for office marking or coloring.
Manufacturers of pens are mainly located in China (Mainland). Majority of the manufactured pens are ballpoint pens, with others being promotional pens, and plastic pens. Manufacturers offer a wide variety of pens to choose from, such as metal, wood, plastic, and so on. There’s also an option to choose from depending on where the pen is going to be used, such as pens that are better suited for office or school, promotional pens with printed logos, or even pens that can be presented as a business gift. There are also vintage style feather pens or pens used for calligraphy. Depending on where the pen is to be used, the quality varies accordingly. Manufacturers tend to typically produce pens in bulks.
