PixPen let’s you be creative and use one of your favorite pictures into a functional ink pen. This is great gift idea for anyone.
PixPen is sold by Jaymo.co which is a division of the Cottage Mills company. Cottage Mills was started in 1991 by Paul Foght with a focus on the craft and scrapbooking markets. His son Jay was his first employee although he later left the start-up to become a Product Manager creating craft products for Fiskars and Uniek. In 2010 Jaymo, the new photo gift division was created to further broaden Cottage Mills’ scope into new sales opportunities.
I’m addicted to pens and pixpen makes it easy to customize one.
I have a slight addiction to ink pens. I have a plastic container full of them but yet every time I’m at the store I look for more. I also love to customize my possessions so that they are unique to anyone else. I can now do that with a pen.
For the purpose of this review I received a pen with my blog header and one brand new still in the package. You can easily change the photo in your pen as well. This is a good thing as I have recently changed my blog header so I need to update my pen now.
The picture needs to be up to 2.5″ x 1.75″ basically a mini wallet.
It is very easy to size the picture you want using their website for designing photos for all of their personalized products.
The pens are black ink and are refillable. It uses standard Parker Pen Refills. I hold my pen in a unique fashion so I am a bit picky about my pens. This is probably why I have such a big collection of them.
The barrel of this pen is a bit chunky but it’s very light weight. I did not notice any discomfort when using this pen. It also writes very smooth and glides over the paper well.
I’m in love with my PixPen and anyone that uses a pen (who doesn’t right?) would love to receive this pen as a gift.
