It is a cross word and it says: Used as an alloy in ballpoint pens, nearly twice as dense as lead( if Dorthy’s house were made out of this, she would have never gotten anywhere!) , the strong odor given off by this metal is a result of its highly toxic oxide.

Q&A: I had this edexcel exam today but I used blue pen instead of black. Is that ok?

Question by : I had this edexcel exam today but I used blue pen instead of black. Is that ok?
Like edexcel exams are supposed to be in “BLACK ink or ball point pen” but me and my buddies accidentally used blue, which is widely accepted by the other exam boards. But is it actually ok?

Is the phrase “ball point pen” no longer used?

Question by Maldives: Is the phrase “ball point pen” no longer used?
Many people just say “pen” and do not describe it further as a ball point. Does anyone use ball point? or just pen.

Best answer:

Answer by Erick L
I think I use “ball point pen” when I’m trying to emphasize the structure of the pen (e.g. I’m going to stab you with a ball point pen). Otherwise I mostly refer to it as simply a “pen” because there’s many pens that no longer use a ball.

Promotional Products: What are They and How are They Used?

Promotional Products: What are They and How are They Used?

Promotional products are defined by the Promotional Products Association International as items used to promote a product, service or company program including advertising specialties, premiums, incentives, business gifts, awards, prizes, commemoratives and other imprinted or decorated items.

Traditional items such as writing instruments, clothing, calendars and drinkware remain ever popular, but now share the .8 billion US market with more contemporary and trendy promotional products such as desktop items, stress products and computer accessories.

Promotional products have many diverse uses in today’s highly competitive marketplace, with companies vying to promote their product, brand or service in a positive light and lasting way. According to the PPAI*, the top ten uses of promotional products in 2006 were:

1. Business gifts

2. Trade shows

3. Brand awareness

4. Public relations

5. Employee relations and events

6. Dealer/distributor programs

7. New customer/account generation

8. Not-for-profit programs

9. Employee service awards

10. New product/service introduction.

Other uses for promotional products include market research, corporate communications, incentive schemes, customer referral, public awareness campaigns, internal promotions and brand loyalty.

One of the many attractions of promotional products is that they can either be used alone or integrated with other advertising media such as print and television. In fact, they have been proven to complement and actually increase the effectiveness of other media.

Promotional products are a key ingredient of marketing and advertising campaigns run by businesses and organisations, ranging from major blue chips and government bodies to hospitals, universities, schools and clubs. Whatever the marketing objective, it will benefit from the use of timely and appropriate promotional products.
