Link-It –Team player and all-rounder
At first sight it is just a tiny pen but then it turns out an all-rounder superstar! After launching the popular twin pen called Link-It, Schneider has decided to expand the product range with further writing technologies and an eye-catching display tower for store presentations. The first Link-It was launched two years ago and already has a huge fan-club. The genius click-system integrated in the ends of the barrels of the pen that cleverly links two pens, is a great invention and was celebrated on the market and in the internet by bloggers and Youtubers. It allows linking two different colours and also two different writing systems in one pen. Until now Link-It was available as fineliner and fibre pen. Now Schneider has launched two new writing systems to mix and match: The popular easy gliding Slider ballpoint pen and a brilliant highlighter! Now everyone can link their favourite colours and their favourite writing system according to their own preferences and needs. The exciting mix and match of colours and different types of pens can be combined in individual sets (bundles) for school, studies and the office.
Texts can be written perfectly with the popular Slider ballpoint pen. At the same, important text passages can be highlighted with the same pen- Just flip the pen and use the second tip! The fibre pen is great for underlining and colouring and the fineliner makes the perfect sides notes. Link-It is therefore perfect for spicing up agendas and bullet journals. A simple notebook becomes an individual art folder with charm and character.
One Link-It for every occasion
The black highlighter is available in four bright marker colours: yellow, green, pink and orange.
The cyan Slider ballpoint pen is available in eight colours (black, red, blue, green, orange, violet, pink and light blue). Its extra-wide writing tip writes extremely soft and smooth thanks to the Viscoglide® technology. The bright green fineliner is perfect for drawing and side notes with its fine tip. With the broad tip of the dark green fibre pen wide surfaces can be filled. Both are available in 16 bright colours each. Ballpoint pen, highlighter, fineliner and fibre pen can be easily linked - and separated again. To link two pens you just have to place the two arrows facing towards each other and “click“. With its variety of colours and its different writing systems, it is the perfect pen to be used for bullet journals, doodling, mandalas and zentangles. The different colours of the barrels indicate that there are four different pen types. The rubberised ergonomic and three-edged barrel is ideal for a relaxed writing. As the cap fits neatly on the end of the barrel it can be held comfortably as an individual pen. It does not roll on the desk and its slim design fits perfectly into pupils' pen cases individually or linked.
Not only customers but also different juries were amazed by this new innovation and Schneider has already received three awards for its innovative twin pens. The first award was the Pro-K Award which is given to outstanding plastic products. Link-It won for its creativity, and because of its sophisticated functionality and particularly prominent features. Followed by the Plus X Award Link-It won for its innovation, high quality, design, functionality and sustainability. With these five awards, the Link-It was also chosen best product in the category "Family and Children". The quality seal of the Plus X Award stands for outstanding and purchasing-defining product features and helps customers quickly and easily recognize the added value of the Link-It.
This year Schneider impressed yet another jury with the Link-It pens and was selected from 229 submissions for the Promotional Gift Award 2018.The unique click system is new and innovative and it has never been seen on the pen market which makes it so special. The bio-based material of which the Link-It is made of is also new and forward-thinking.
Schneider loves it green
Since Schneider loves the green world, not only the colour of the pen is green, but the whole concept of this pen, including its packaging. With Link-It Schneider sets another milestone in terms of sustainability. The new product family is very colourful while environmentally green. As the first fineliners and fibre pens and highlighters on the market the green pen body is made of bio-based plastics and thus conserves our scarce oil reserves. The amount of 88% bio based material was confirmed by DIN CERTCO, an independent certification organization. And because that's still not enough, unavoidable emissions in the production process of the Link-It are offset by the support of an internationally recognized climate protection project.
Mix it, like-it, Link-It
The colourful team-players are packed in a convenient adjustable pencil case stand. When folded it easily fits in any school bag or hand bag. The convenient adjustable pencil case boxes are available with fineliner, fibre pens and now also with Slider ballpoint pens. For those who like to create their own individual box, Schneider offers also unfilled boxes for 8 pens for individual mixing and matching. By the way, the convenient adjustable pencil case stand also supports our environmental thinking. It is durable and can be used as a penholder and it is made of waste from internal plastics processing.

For retailers Schneider presents its brand new and attractive rotatable POS display, including a testing pad with 280 different pens, plus 12 filled and 6 unfilled pen boxes for 8 pieces for individual mixing and matching.The highlight: the display is like the Link-It pen made of two halves.
