Shopping for Personalized Pens Made Easy: QLP’s New Pen Search Features!

When you search for pens on our website, our site returns more than 3,000 options. We know you love having all of those choices, but we also know there are a lot of search results to wade through. That’s why we’ve made it easier than ever for you to find just the WRITE pen by using the new search functions on our website!

We can’t wait to tell you all about our helpful new features, but first check out this exciting video:

If you’ve decided that a personalized pen is the perfect giveaway item for your upcoming promotion, there are two easy ways to browse through all of the pens Quality Logo Products® has to offer AND use our new search tools. You can search for pens in our helpful category pages:

Or simply type “pens” into our huge search bar and hit GO!

Filter Your Search

Once you’ve found your way to our massive listing of pens, now the fun really starts!

When you search for a pen, you have a variety of options to filter down your search to find exactly what you need. You can sort by the most popular pens, a specific price, or by the minimum quantity:

Of course you can always search by item type, color, or your delivery date…

If you’re looking for a total delivered price, you can also customize you search by your budget.

All the pens that fit within your budget will be on full display!

Find the Pen For You

But there’s so much more, just for your order of custom pens…

The first new search option we’ve added for all of you pen seekers is the ability to search by MATERIAL and TYPE.

As you can see, you now have the option to filter your search results based on the type of pen you’re looking for! So if you know you’re looking for a nice fountain pen for some of your top clients, all you have to do is select “fountain” in this section…

… and our search results will auto-populate a new list of only fountain pens!


Pen material and type are only a couple new ways that you can search for pens on our website, but that’s not all!

We’ve also added the option to search by INK COLOR.

We’ve provided a list of every ink color we have available, so all you have to do is select the color you’re looking for in order to narrow down your search results to exactly what you’re looking for! Before I elaborate, it’s important to note that INK COLOR is different from ITEM COLOR. Ink color describes the color ink that your pen will write in, while item color is for the color of the actual pen itself.

So let’s say you’re ordering pens for your law firm, which requires blue ink. All you have to do is select the color blue from the Pen Ink Color category in the sidebar…

…and we’ll only show you pens that are available with blue ink!


You can also search by DECORATION METHOD & ITEM SIZE. 

“That’s great, but I’m not looking for a particular type of pen that writes in a certain color. Can I use these functions together or search for more than one pen at once?” Definitely!

The whole reason we added these filters is so that you can narrow down your search results as much as possible and search for more than one pen type or ink color all in one shot!

You can search by item color, ink color, and pen type exclusively, but if you’re looking for an orange ballpoint pen that writes in black ink, we’ve got you covered:

And that’s just one example of how you can combine these tools to make our website work for you! There are endless combinations and possibilities to help you find exactly what you need.

Maybe you want to be even more specific. No problem! We have a whole selection of options available to filter your search:

Mix and match these search filters, and you’ll find the “one”—the pen you were destined to meet as your next promotional giveaway. If you want a purple pen that writes in blue link and will arrive by next Monday, all you have to do is change your filters. Who wouldn’t fall for the tres-chic pen?

The goal is for you to find the promotional products you need without spending hours upon hours searching through our website. We have over 20,000 products and you have a life, our search features make it easy for you to get promos by your deadline!

Do you have any questions? Need help using these new features? Or are you ready to place an order? Whatever you need our sales team is here for you! You can reach them by phone (866-312-5646), by email (, via our live chat, or by leaving a comment below!

    This is pretty amazing. How many times did your heart break last year when you found the pen of your dreams, only to find out it did not come in the ink color you wanted? Me? Probably 500 + times. So no need to waste time looking at items that don’t meet your criteria, facet and go!

  2. PMO

    This pen update is PHENOMENAL!

    Cheers to the web team and to the Bloggers for making this easy for our clients to digest.

  3. Jay Hoffman

    WOOO! This is absolutely awesome. Super helpful for us at QLP and our customers. Such a time saver, especially when it comes to blue ink. Kudos to the programmers responsible for all the hard work involved in this!

  4. Kelly Bird

    Two of the most common issues customers have when purchasing pens is locating the pens with blue ink cartridges and/or large imprint areas. These new features on the QLP website completely take the guesswork out of finding exactly what you need for your next pen purchase and QLP’s low prices and awesome customer service completely take the guesswork out of where to buy them! 🙂

Thankfully, Quality Logo Products is continually improving the website to make it easier for clients to sift through all those options. If you can't narrow it down using our search functions or have any specific questions, please give us a call and we'll be happy to help out.

    What an awesome post. All of the new search features are so handy I can’t even stand it! With so many search filters for pens it should be a breeze to find the one that’s perfect.

    A-M-A-Z-I-N-G-! These new options are very cool and helpful! With sooo many options to choose from this makes it MUCH easier! Thank you Data Entry Team! Y’all ROCK! Time to find the perfect pen!

  12. Greg

    The new search function is great! It not only helps our clients but, it helps us, help our clients to!! Great break down!

  13. Anthony

    This is SUPER AWESOME!! Finally customer’s can search and find the perfect pen for their occasion or personal preference. I think the most awesome feature is the pen type. That, followed up by the ink color choice will shorten down their search until they find the pen they fall in love with. The new additions to the website are getting better and better! 🙂 KEEP IT UP! 😀 Great post!

  14. Jaimie


    I am so bad at making decisions as it is…

    Great post, though! This is such an awesome new search function that will be super useful for our customers. 🙂

  15. Serenity

    I love specified search functions on sites! Helps so much! These days online shopping has become just as daunting and exhausting as shopping at stores. So I am always pleased with these kinds of specific search tools!

  16. Leo

    I can’t begin to describe the excitement that happened once this function was released. Having clients search in general terms was incredibly hard. Once this bad boy hit the scene, I can shoot out so many more options! I would honestly have to say that ink color would have to be my favorite search tool. I once had a client looking for green ink! Those pens can be hard to come by, but not with this useful tool!
