SEATTLE, February 3, 2016 — For Stars Wars fans, there’s always a way to show the world your love for the movie and its lore of The Force. Cross Pens released three pens based on Star Wars characters a few months ago. Fewer things scream, “Hey! I’m a Star Wars geek” like holding onto a C3PO, Darth Vader or Stormtrooper-themed pen.
While it may be hard to believe there are people who still buy pens in this digital age era, the market is still strong and I’m sure we can all agree there’s still something great about hand-writing versus doing everything digitally.
Known for its reliability and durability, Cross has been around for over 100 years and has established itself as a world-class producer of quality pens. Founded by A.T. Cross back in 1846 in Rhode Island, Cross started off by making gold and silver casings for pencils which stemmed from the family’s background as jewelers.
These Star Wars pens use a polished lacquer process, a click mechanism and are sold in a character-themed box. They use a gel ink with a rollerball which flows in a similar fashion to that of a fountain pen.
The gel ink and rollerball system allow this pen to write with minimal efforts – it feels as if it’s gliding on the paper. Additionally, any of these pens will also make for a great conversation piece which could lead to the advantage of getting to know someone better – and that is the kind of thing that makes the world go ‘round.
