Have you ever felt overwhelmed picking out the best pen for your office? With different ink types and features, it’s difficult to understand which pen will work best for your needs. Zebra Pen, a leader in writing instruments, has a wide variety of pens, featuring different ink types. We outline the different types of inks, along with the pen that best matches your needs.

Oil Based Ink

Oil based ink is often found in ballpoint pens. This type of ink is preferable as it does not smudge, has a longer life, and comes with superior value. If you write free-hand versus on a computer, this pen is perfect for you.
