Promotional pen supplier w/ low minimum?

    I'm thinking about getting some promotional pens made up eventually. It seems that most suppliers have their minimums set up so that an order comes out to around the $300 range. In other words, a cheapy .25 cent pen requires buying a minimum of 1,200, and a fancier $1.00 pen requires buying a minimum of 300.

    Does anyone know of a supplier that has a lower minimum order, like $100 ?? I was thinking of some cheapy regular old Bic type pens that are in the .50-.75 cent range, but I don't need a THOUSAND of them. Couple hundred maybe.

    Anyone? Thanks.

    I've gotten some from these guys in the past and was really satisfied with both price and quality. I'm gonna be ordering a bunch more here pretty soon.

    Try Burrell Promotions in Texas. They have done my stuff for years in another business I own including 1,000's of pens and their prices can't be touched. If you need it I can dig up their website and phone number.

    I think the web address is www.amsterdamprinting.com They will run specials from time to time. Most of the time the order minimum is around 100 on the cheaper pens and maybe 50 on some of the more expensive pens. Get on their mailing list and the will send you a catalog and free pens every other month or so. Sometimes the free pens will even have the name of your business on there.

    Thanks to everyone for posting, I'll be sure to check them all out, but I have to say that this first link had just what I was looking for. But I'll bookmark them all for future reference anyway. Thanks again!
