Lefties get a bad rap. And even the good news isn’t so good. Ever hear about how loads of U.S. presidents were left-handed? Sadly, only 14% were south paws. That’s more than the general leftie population but not by much. Or studies suggest that left-handers are far superior in math and art and verbal expression. Except for the studies that suggest that’s all bunk.
Is there any good news in all this? Well, lefties are no longer viewed as tools of Satan. So that’s a plus. And in Buddhism the left hand represents wisdom. You can’t take that away. But overall the leftie brand is stalled out for now, leaving lefties under the radar, struggling quietly to work with power saws without amputating limbs, cut wrapping paper while remaining sane, and perhaps most arduous of all…write on a piece of paper without the side of their palm looking like a gosh darn asphalt road and their paper looking like a Rorschach inkblot test.
With this – the asphalt and the inkblot – we can help.
In our 50 years of promotional pens, we’ve amassed some knowledge about left-handed writing and the best pens for lefties. Below, a brief summary:
With this in mind, we submit, for your consideration, two sure-bet pens that your left-handed clients, customers, students and employees will be ever-so-grateful to receive. On behalf of southpaws everywhere, we say, if you’re inclusive, please show it, with a pen that doesn’t drive 10-14% of your target audience to distraction.
Attach your logo to this Zebra Sarasa Gel Retractable or this uni-ball® Jetstream Sport Roller Pen. Both feature your logo along with low viscosity, quick drying ink and an ergonomic rubber grip for fewer hand cramps and happier customers–thanks to you, of course!
Left handed writing is worthy of your consideration. Left Handers Day is August 13 but lefties need love throughout the year, so jump the gun and be the first to make their day!
