PENCO Biro Graph Ballpoint Pen

Sold out
$ 4.00
Color: Black

HIGHTIDE was inspired to create their own ballpoint 'biro' pen, taking inspiration from the classic ballpoint pens used in diners and offices across the USA. These ballpoint pens come in a range of bright colors with black ink and a 1.0mm tip.

This ballpoint pen is light, and you can write smoothly with it on our paper. As for the color, High Tide chooses many rare colors. From the classic black made famous by the ubiquitous Government Pen to the deep red that has that awesome 80's feel. Since the parts are all interchangeable, people can exchange the upper part and the lower part of the penholder to make a colorful pen with various colors. You will find it interesting when collecting the lovely ballpoint pens. 

These types of pens were common until the 1980s; there used to always be ballpoint pens with an advertisement at cash registers in cafes and banks across the US. Companies would print logos, addresses, or phone numbers on ballpoint pens to promote their businesses. You may have received one and used it to write down phone numbers, draw out directions, or take notes in class. High Tide's Penco Biro-Graph ballpoint pen features this same vintage style. The "Biro" comes from the inventor of the ballpoint pen- Bíró László József.

We love these pens for keeping in our bag or the pocket of our jacket. They are light and easy to carry around. When someone needs a pen, our Biro-Graph is always ready. It is a cool nostalgic pen that brings back the 1980's for many of us Generation X/Millennials. Another great thing about these ballpoint pens is they are made in the USA, something that is an important principle for us.
