Which Pen Is Your Dad?

Dad, Pops, Father…whatever you call your dad, he’s worth celebrating this coming Father’s Day. And, because we can’t help ourselves, we’ve come up with a little Father’s Day pen quiz to see which pen your dad would be if he were a pen.

The Old Faithful Dad

Does your dad…

  • Check your oil every time you visit?
  • Remind you to keep an eye on your checking account balance?
  • Wear a sensible cardigan?

Keep on the straight and narrow—you have the Old Faithful Dad.

The Deluxe Madison Pen is for him, with its classic look and dependable (and smooth!) rollerball ink. And because he isn’t one for a risk, this pen comes in tried-and-true gunmetal, blue, burgundy, or black.

The Artsy Dad

Does your dad…

  • Take you to art galleries and museums?
  • Know the difference between Manet and Monet?
  • Keep a sketchbook with him at all times?

Break out your beret—you have the Artsy Dad.

Keep his creative spirit alive with the Full Color Inkjet Task Master Multi-Ink Pen. With three ink colors (blue, black, and red), he’ll be able to sketch his heart out without changing pens.

The Funny Dad

Does your dad…

  • Never miss an opportunity for a dad joke?
  • Think embarrassing stories about you are always appropriate?
  • Love comedy shows?

Hope your funny bone is strong—you have the Funny Dad.

Joyous, unique, and a bit silly, the Classic Squiggle Pen is right up your dad’s alley. You can even add a funny saying on the barrel to keep him laughing.


Happy Father’s Day to all the dads out there!
