Looking for the special promotional ballpoint pen?
Schneider offers a whole family with the Slider series to provide everyone with the ballpoint pen they need. Retractable ballpoint pens (Slider Rave, Slider Xite Promo) or ballpoint pens with caps (Slider Memo XB, Slider Edge XB, Slider Basic XB, Link-It Slider), classic design or ergonomic triangular. First impressions count, that is well known. Everyone is aware that this is sometimes deceptive. To be able to convince beyond the initial euphoria, the inner values have to be right. With a model from Schneider's popular Slider series, there is the right one for every application.
But what makes the popular Slider ballpoint pen series stand out?
The Viscoglide®- technology
Behind this is a sophisticated technology that allows the user to write extraordinarily smooth and gliding without dropouts. With it, you glide over the paper like a surfer over water. Even prolonged writing does not become painful because the hand, arm and joints do not tire. The ballpoint pens Slider write instantly and give a colour-intensive stroke that dries quickly - even on smooth paper - and remains smudge-proof and resistant to moisture and UV radiation even when highlighting it later on.
Soft touch for a good grip
All models (except Slider Xite Promo) have a pressure-elastic, rubberised surface. They are all particularly soft in the hand and enable non-slip and easy writing. Especially with frequent and long use, this feature benefits the user. The velvety surface attracts attention right from the first touch, as this makes the pen sit particularly well in the hand and turns a normal signature into a haptic experience. The active feeling also gives your advertising message on the pen a special meaning. The pleasant feeling when touching the pen directs the eye to the writing instrument and the positive perception is transferred to your brand. The rubberised surfaces also give the advertising message a particularly high-quality appearance.
Extra broad linewidth and possible colour variety
The thickness of the pens is XB (extra broad), which gives a line width of approx. 1.4 mm. The ink flows richly. It is waterproof according to ink standard ISO 12757-2 for the following executions: Slider Xite Promo (black, blue), Slider Rave (black, blue, green), Slider Memo XB (black), Slider Edge XB (black), Slider Basic XB (black). Thus, the Slider pens are suitable for signatures of important documents, for exams, tests and essays, because the following features are guaranteed: Water and smudge resistance, light fastness and quick drying. The models are available in the following standard colours: Slider Xite Promo in black/blue, Slider Rave and Link-It in black, blue, red, green. The Slider Memo XB, Slider Basic XB and Slider Edge XB models are available with black and blue writing colours, but seven additional colours are available on request, and for the Slider Edge, as many as 17 additional colours are available on request. The variety of colours can thus cover a wide range of customer needs. Ideal partners for office, university or school.
Refillability of the retractable ballpoint pens and wear-resistant stainless steel tips
The refills in the Slider-models Xite Promo and Rave are replaceable. The ink can be completely used without residue. The models thus become eternal companions. They can take any of the Plug+Play refills offered by Schneider. Refills of different sizes, colours and line widths can be used in one pen.
Barrel made of bio-based plastic
Those who prefer writing instruments made of sustainable plastic will also find what they are looking for in the Slider series. The retractable ballpoint pen Slider Xite Promo is made from 70% biobased plastic pen body. Biobased plastics are produced on the basis of renewable raw materials. For example, starch from corn, sugar from sugar cane and sugar beet, vegetable oils such as castor oil or cellulose from cotton or wood can be used as raw materials. As a neutral and independent third party, DIN CERTCO documents our resource-saving use of raw materials and also certifies the proportion of biobased plastics.
All models can be customised
Each model can be individually printed with your good name so that your customers and business partners will remember your company for a long time. Schneider masters all printing processes, screen, pad, digital printing, foil transfer and engraving. Sustainable, long-lasting ecological writing instruments are enormously effective as give-aways and represent your company in an eye-catching way to any target group. Advertising with Schneider means giving gifts made of brand quality Made in Germany.
Brand quality Made in Germany
The ballpoint pen is the unrivalled favourite among promotional products. And Schneider has been the expert in its manufacture for over 80 years. Quality, innovative power and a clear commitment to being sustainable are the reasons why six of the ten best-selling ballpoint pens in Germany are made by Schneider according to GfK Retail & Technology. They are developed and produced in Germany.
Climate neutral production
To be able to share our commitment to sustainability with others: That's a good feeling.
Our home is the Black Forest and the Harz mountains. Due to our proximity to nature, sustainability is deeply rooted in our minds and leads us like a compass. Saving resources, climate protection, avoiding waste, energy efficiency and the exclusive use of renewable energy are just a few of the many examples of how we practice sustainability throughout the company.
Schneider is the only writing instrument manufacturer to be certified at all production sites in accordance with the world's most demanding environmental management system EMAS (https://ec.europa.eu/) of the European Union. One of the core requirements of EMAS is a continuous improvement process with ever new environmental goals. This also includes the reduction of emissions and harmful CO2 (greenhouse gas).
However, there are limits to the influence (e.g. processes at upstream suppliers). That is why Schneider has commissioned ClimatePartner to record unavoidable CO2 emissions. Schneider has been producing many of its products and series, including the Slider series, in a climate-neutral way for several years. In order to give back even more to the environment and society, Schneider has decided to offer all promotional writing instruments in a climate-neutral manner. This means that the unavoidable emissions (product carbon footprint) that still occur during the manufacture of our promotional products are offset by investing in certified international climate protection projects. The reduction and offset of unavoidable emissions takes place before, during and after production (Scope 3).
The compensation payments flow into the Pará climate/forest protection project in the Amazon region, Brazil. In this way, Schneider supports and promotes the protection of one of the most sensitive ecosystems on the planet.
