PenAgain Now Available at Tiger Pens

PenAgain is an ergonomic range of pens & pencils. The brainchild of Colin Roche who used his time in a school detention to develop his ideas. Fast forward 15 years & during lunch with old college friend engineer Bobby Ronsse, the pair decided to embark on a business venture & the rest as they say is history.

These writing instruments are designed to reduce the strain that often results from gripping or squeezing traditional pens & pencils. The ergonomic Y shaped cradle uses the natural weight of the hand so that pressure is put onto the writing surface instead of your fingers.

PenAgain users often say these pens & pencils can take some getting used to but that it’s a price worth paying for their benefits. They can help alleviate writers cramp, repetitive strain injury, carpal tunnel syndrome & also help people with suffering from conditions like arthritis. The soft silicone coating is comfortable to hold, allowing more control means they can also help improve your writing.

Ergosleek Ballpoint Pen
With all the same features as the Ergosoft, the PenAgain Ergosleek Ballpoint Pen has a stylish metallic finish. The pens have a metal body with a metallic finish in a choice of red, black or blue. The nib housing is a bright polished chrome & the grip areas are made with comfortable soft rubber.

Twist ‘n Write Pencil
In the same wishbone design as the pens, these pencils are designed for small hands & can help children to naturally place their fingers in the correct position. Making them easier to hold helps to focus on the writing or doodling rather than the grip. The Twist ‘n write suit both right & left handers. The lead in the pencils do not require sharpening & can be refilled. The twin packs contain pink & blue sparkly pens that have erasers on the outside of the wishbone.

Fisher Space Pens Now Available at Tiger Pens

Fisher Space Pens have been used by astronauts since 1968. After inventing the “Universal Refill” & in a quest to make further improvements, Paul Fisher a big fan of the space program at the time, continued his work which resulted in the development of the Fisher AG-7 Space Pen in 1966.
