When you hand your guests a pen at the front desk or lay one out for them in the room, you’ll want it to represent your hotel nicely. Occasionally, pens leave the hotel with your guests, so you’ll want to make sure you provide customized pens with your information for guests to remember where they stayed.

Here’s a breakdown of Front Desk Supply’s suggestions for good, better, and best custom pens for hotels.

Good – Stick Pens

If you’re looking for a standard pen to get the job done, stick pens are reasonably priced and customizable. Stick pens are a good option for hotels that seem to lose pens often when guests take them home. The design is simple and lightweight, providing hotels an affordable option to buy in bulk.

Better – Retractable Pens “Click Pens”

A retractable pen is a small way to make signing receipts or writing down information at the front desk easier on your guests and staff members. Stick pens have a pesky cap that somehow manages to get lost, leaving you with an incomplete pen. Retractable pens are a better option for hotels that have a little extra money in the budget and want to impress their guests. These pens cost a little more, but the feel of the pen is nicer and more professional than your regular stick pen. Retractable pens offer guests a comfortable grip that stick pens cannot offer due to their caps.

Best – Metallic Pens

If you want to really stand out from other hotels, you can offer your guests metallic pens. These pens have a distinguished look, and you’re bound to receive compliments about the stationary you offer guests. This sleek pen will ensure your name gets noticed, creating a great marketing tool for your property. A metallic pen will give your hotel’s front desk and room stationery a modern look and feel to spruce up your branding.

Regardless of your budget, Front Desk Supply will help find the pen that best matches your brand. If a guest does take your customized pen home, they’ll be sure to know where it came from. No matter how many pens go missing, Front Desk Supply will always offer you affordable pricing to ensure you’re fully stocked and able to offer guests a shiny new pen when they visit your hotel.

Front Desk Supply is committed to helping you give the best guest experience possible in the new year and beyond. Having fully stocked supplies in place, including signage and PPE, is vital to ensure your hotel functions safely and efficiently from check-in to check-out.
