New Products: Staedtler Textsurfer Classic Highlighters, Stabilo Bl@ck Roller Ball Pens, Dailylike Fabric Tape and More!
January 5, 2012 - Posted by Elizabeth to Announcements
Our first batch of new products in 2012 has a lot of exciting goodies!
The Stabilo Bl@ck roller ball pens are a great new additional to our product selection, and feature the ultra-smooth writing that liquid ink pens are known for. Two different line widths, and four different ink colors are available.
Another new JetPens item, the Staedtler Textsurfer Classic highlighters have a fast-drying pigment ink, that is light-fast and will not smudge ink-jet printing or most handwritten inks. Some of the colors are even refillable with the Staedtler Textsurfer Refill Stations!
Something fun for the crafty set is our selection of Dailylike Fabric Tape. Available in several different patterns and colors, these strips of pretty fabric are backed with adhesive, and will add a touch of decoration to any surface!

2011 was a banner year for new products at JetPens. Sure, we all keep loading up on old standbys like the Pilot Hi-Tec-C and Lamy Safari, but the New Arrivals section was the place to be this year. Here are a few of my favorite products introduced in 2011.
Lihit Lab Teffa Bag in a Bag
More than just a pencil case, the Lihit Lab Teffa Bag in a Bag can carry your entire writing arsenal. The A5 size easily holds a notebook or your favorite e-reader in the main compartment, and the multiple exterior compartments hold your phone, camera, pens, refills and more. All colors and sizes have been flying off the shelf since the day they arrived.
Palomino Blackwing 602
If a self-proclaimed pen addict can fall in love with a wood case pencil then it must be good. The Palomino Blackwing 602 is more than good - it is fantastic. The original 602 was widely recognized as one of the best pencils ever created and the new version lives up to the historical hype.
E+M Workman Pocket Clutch Lead Holder
The E+M Workman Pocket Clutch Lead Holder takes a minimalistic approach to a classic writing instrument. Designers and artists love the compact size and bright beech wood barrel colors. There are even a rainbow of lead refills available.
Staedtler Triplus Fineliner
I ask customers frequently what products would they like to see us carry and the Staedtler Triplus Fineliner was mentioned more than any other product in 2011. They feature a metal-clad tip which makes the tip durable when used against a ruler, and are dry-safe, meaning they can be left safely uncapped for days and pick right up where they left off.
It was a great year for new products in 2011. What were some of your favorites?
These products have been discontinued. Check out more cable organizers in our Other Office Supplies section!
Tired of the jungle of cables on or under your desk? Constantly getting caught on different cords around your work space? Never fear, JetPens has the solution for you! Among our latest new product release before the holidays, we brought in some pretty sweet new cable organizers that will add a fun touch to any office.
The Fork and Cream Sauce Cable Organizer is perfect for wrapping up those single iPhone and iPod cables that tend to snake across your space. Simply wrap the cable around the fork, and stick it into the "cream sauce" base!
The Your Magnet Mobile Accessory was primarily designed as a convenient stand for your electronic device, but since it will attach to most smooth surfaces, it doubles as a great cable wrangler!
Lastly, my personal favorites are the new Leaf Tie Cable Organizers. These simple little zip ties are topped with plastic leaves, and add a "green" touch to any desk. Just wrap your cables up and let the leaves bring you back to nature!
How do you organize your cables?
December 21, 2011 - Posted by Brad Dowdy to Mechanical Pencils
I asked for JetPens Classics recommendations in our recent Cyber Monday Giveaway and received several great ideas. The actual winner of the giveaway suggested the Pentel Sharp Kerry Mechanical Pencil be featured next in the series and I think it is a perfect choice.
Up until this summer I wasn't too familiar with the Pentel Sharp Kerry. It was first introduced in 1971, but for some reason never found its way into my hands. Boy, was I missing out.
The standout feature of this pencil is the amazing barrel design. How many capped mechanical pencils have you ever used? This is my first, and I have used many pencils over the years. If you were looking at it capped you would assume it is a very nice roller ball pen. Only when uncapped do you realize the greatness that lies beneath.
With the cap posted, the pencil has complete functionality. You advance the lead by clicking the button on the top of the cap, with the eraser located under the same button. If you prefer to write without the cap, there is a different knock at the end of the pencil that advances the lead as well. All of this is contained in a sharp colored plastic barrel with chrome accents.
Can you believe a design this unique has been around for 40 years?
Judging by the customer reviews there are more than a few of you that are a fan of the Pentel Sharp Kerry. Its beautiful design and flawless functionality is exactly what being a JetPens Classic is all about.
