Recommendations for places to buy promotional pens?

I'd like to get some inexpensive pens (think cheap ball-point pens) printed with my production company's name/web address. Has anyone had experience using an online service for this?
Thanks
Greg

Pens are the most common giveaway in the world, and that's a darn good reason to avoid them. We're in a creative business, we should be more creative in the freebie department.

But if you've got your heart set on pens, be sure to give away quality pens. When I get a cheap 29 cent pen from a business, that simply reminds me they're a cheap business.

Anyway, to answer your question, here's a company that some associates have used: 4imprint.

Why not get some custom printed USB sticks. They will have a high regular usage and people will happily accept them.
