Zebra Pen outfits all your writing needs

By Mir

Category Contests

My name is Mir, and I… I… I’m an office supplyaholic. I particularly like writing implements—I have an overflowing mug of pens, pencils, highlighters, and the like. And some in my desk. And some backups on my supply shelves. Plus sometimes I raid my husband’s desk.

I may have a problem, is what I’m saying.

But you, you don’t have a problem. In fact, all of your pen and pencil problems are about to solved. Why? Because you’re about to have a shot at winning a grab bag of goodies from Zebra Pen. It’s got a pack of Cadoozles (fun mechanical pencils for the kids) and an original F301 and a compact F301 and a bunch of Z-Grips and a whole mess of pens and pencils from their new Zebra Eco line, which are made from recycled materials and fairy wings. (Okay, maybe not the fairy wings part….) I have two packages of Zebra pens and pencils to give away, each containing around 20 items.

Do you feel the office supply love? Does nothing thrill you more than a fresh pen? Do your children keep taking your pencils? This could be the contest for you! To enter for a chance to win, simply leave a comment on this post by 3:00 p.m. Eastern time (noon Pacific) on Wednesday, October 1st, 2008. One comment per person, please; valid email address required. Winners to be determined by random number generation and penmanship (obviously).

Ready? Go!


  1. I love pens!!!

  2. I love office supplies too!!

  3. Oh here I am hoping big time!

  4. My son is homeschooled but yet it is almost October and he is already out of mechanical pencils. I really think the kids eat them.

  5. I’m a teacher- we always need stuff like this! ๐Ÿ™‚

  6. We have a full drawer full of pens that don’t work and pencils that need to be sharpened. So we could seriously enjoy this fun prize package, thanks!

  7. Love love love office supplies. AND I have excellent penmanship! Really! ๐Ÿ˜€

  8. What is black and white and red all over? Not a zebra pencil!

    A: a newspaper! Ha ha, hardy har har!

  9. I’m feelin the love. Pass it on over to me. Ok?

  10. My name is Dawn and I am addicted to office supplies!

  11. In high school *ehem* a few years ago, I had a favorite pen, and when it ran out, I could always go buy another one. The brand, or maybe even just the style, was called Pony, and it was written on the clip thing-y. Alas, I’ve not been able to find one since, but check every so often “just to see”. Maybe I could find a new favorite in this bunch.

  12. Oooh. . . I may not have to write everything down in jumbo crayola or half dried-up marker?!?! Sweet!

  13. I would like some fancy new writing utensils.

  14. I keep a stash of pens and pencils always within an arm’s reach. They are everywhere. Drives everyone here nuts. Please help me add to their nuttiness.

    Thank you!

  15. Yes to all of the above. Plus, daughter in college who loses pens and pencils at a very rapid rate.

  16. I can always use pretty new pens!

  17. pick me pick me!! you’re beautiful mir and I love pens

  18. Pens? Pencils? I hear the younger set occasionally use those instruments in school, but I personally haven’t written anything off keyboard in about 9 years. It would be nice to have these around. You know, like museum pieces.

    Heh heh.

  19. My name is Anne, and I am an office supply lover.

    I once found an abandoned Zebra pen. It was awesome, and I could never find refills for it ๐Ÿ™

  20. I have nice penmanship. See how nicely and evenly the print in this comment is?

  21. I am more of a paper whore, but am always happy to have something nice to write with on the fancy paper I spend to much money on.

  22. Here is hoping I win.

  23. I have atrocious penmanship. I always have.

    But I think that just maybe, with the right set of writing utensils . . . I could improve. There’s always hope, no?

  24. So cute!

  25. Seriously, is there anything better than a brand new pen or pencil?

  26. Man I’d love some new pens… I can never seem to find one when I’m looking.

  27. I need.

  28. I sure do love me some writing implements. Please?

  29. Ooooh…I love office supplies!! Once I find a favorite pen, NO ONE better try to steal it.

  30. Pick me, pick me!

  31. Having a daughter that loves to draw… my stuff has a tendency to disappear!

  33. love, love, love pens!!

  34. ooooo PENS!

    Have you read “Shadow of the Wind”?
    Awesome book in which a pen is seen as a mystical implement.

  35. ZOMG! Pens!!!

    When Hubby and I got hitched (almost 10 years ago, now!), we were only half-joking when we discussed registering at an office supply store instead of the usual department store or whatever. ๐Ÿ˜€

  36. I love Z-grips! I have RA and they are one of the few pens I can use comfortably!!!!

  80. wow, I thought I was the only one with an office supply problem…glad to hear that I’m not alone ๐Ÿ™‚

  82. I’m always hunting for a pen or pencil when I’m on the phone.

  83. I have serious addiction problems. Or, maybe it’s just that my dd eats them>?

  84. Maybe if I win cool new supplies, I’ll be forced to clean off my desk so I can keep track of them!

  85. Please send these to my husband. He is a pen addict. Whenever I go shopping anywhere all he wants is for me to bring him home a new neat pen. His birthday is October 16th so this would be great! Thank you.

  86. We heart pens!

  87. I love office supplies as well. I used to raid the office I worked at a while ago! ๐Ÿ™‚

  123. I love supplies!! Pick me!

  124. I love em!! Pick me please!

  125. Broke college students LOVE pens!!! ๐Ÿ™‚

  126. Ooh! I love Zebra pens. I also have the office supply sickness. I think it’s the adult version of the thrill we got as kids from new school supplies. Well, at least I got a thrill from new school supplies. It doesn’t take much to make me happy!

  127. one can never have too many pens!

  128. I **love** Zebra products, and I cannot find them locally. I just about cried when my last Z-grip finally ran out of ink.

  129. I LOVE office supplies and being organized as well! I am a part time secretary type for our Pastor and church and my husband laughs at how excited I get about office supplies!

  130. I am working hard at getting organized to work from home… my office supply addiction is definitely just getting started!

  131. As a fellow writing-tool-aholic, I would LOVE to have all of those lovely items! (drool drool drool) ๐Ÿ™‚

  132. Pencil me in! Ha ha!
    (Seriously, I hope you pick me!)

  133. lucky number 132 for this contest

  134. yes please!

  135. Wow, I really hoped my number is lucky this contest. I was just gripping to my husband last night that my supply of pens always seem to magically disappear and when I do find a writing utensil that isn’t a crayon, it is almost dried out and writes very poorly. Anyway…If I win I promise to keep my supply under lock and key!

  136. I can never find a blasted pen when I need one.

  137. Doesn’t my penmanship look nice? ๐Ÿ˜‰

  138. I love those F301 pens!

  139. My husband keeps saying we have too many pens! My daughter and I totally disagree! It would be so funny to see the look on his face if I won this!!!

  140. I could really use those! I constantly uh borrow pens from my boss. If I win maybe I’ll share!

  141. My goodness, Mir, can I join the support group? Although the ones I know? We call ourselves “office geeks,” meaning that we love new reams of paper and boxes of folders and new pens/pencils and really neat staple removers and staplers and…

    Well, obviously the list can go on and on. My name is jess and I’m an office supply geek. I admit it. (Please help me feed my need for new pens/pencils. I’m banned from getting more at my house. Apparently I have “too many already.” *huffs* HOW can you have to many?)


  142. I, too, am an office supplyaholic. Writing utensils, staplers of the highest quality, notepads, binder clips….I love them all. I’ve never used Zebra pens…but would be willing to try. ๐Ÿ™‚

  143. Write on!

  144. The last pen I bought for my husband was put in a pinata and tragically beaten to death. I cried for days.

  145. My son would love these.

  146. Pens!! I need pens!!

  147. Nothing better than office supplies!

  148. I’m a college student, studying to be a teacher. Need I say more? Thanks for the opportunity!

  149. I would love some new pens!

  150. i’m in!

  151. Very fun! THanks.

  152. I have a special needs son who can’t take just one at a time. If he needs a pencil, he has to take 10 each time. My pencil stash goes down way too fast. For a kid who never loses anything, he does manage to misplace the pencils. I think he just hides them though.

  153. A comfortable pen is like a nice warm fuzzy blanket in winter. I love to write and words flow like syrup on to pancakes when my thoughts begin. I write on plain old primer paper because it doesn’t cloud my thinking. I am sure that I would appreciate trying these tools and having my words slide along the paper like ice skates traveling across a freshly frozen pond.

  154. i love pens! & pencils!

  155. I am SUCH a writing impliment junkie!!

  156. Pick us

  174. Penmanship? I need a pen first please.

  175. Very few things make me happier than wondering thru an office supply store! New pens would be great.

  176. I worked in an office supply store for a year before getting married – I was in heaven. A husband and 4 kids later, and I am lucky just to find a pen with ink in it. I would love to create a “Mommy only” pen/pencil cup. Probably wouldn’t last long, but it would be fun to try.

  177. Winning this contest would be like all the best parts of the first day of school (brand new supplies) without the bad stuff (spending days figuring out what to wear only to walk out of the bathroom with TP stuck on your shoe). What, is that just me?

  178. I love office supplies. They are one of the only things I will willingly shop for. I think I need new pens…

  179. I am a first grade teacher married to a librarian. We aren’t exactly rolling in the dough but we do have enough good penmanship and office supply addiction to go around!

  185. Love love office supplies!

  186. I love pens!

  187. I love Mir! And I love Mir contests!

  188. I’ll write you something nice with those shiny new pens!

  205. OMG, I hoard office supplies too! In fact, I probably don’t need more, but I want these anyway.

  227. I have the same obsession. Please continue to feed it.

  228. As I was showcasing my latest raid from Staples, my daughter asked me why I needed to get all this stuff when we don’t need it. Ugh…it’s free and I was in the neighborhood! So I’d love to add to the stash. You crack me up, Mir. I read your blog just to get a laugh.

  333. I have serious issues – I love, love, love pens and pencils. I have them in all shapes, sizes and colors.

  334. my kids would love some cadoozles!!

  335. Unfortunately both myself and my 7 year old DD both have a love of all things pen related. Can I ever find one? Oh no, of course not. I’d just like to say “cadoozles”

  336. Maybe this means I will stop taking them from work for awhile… how I lose so many pens at home I don’t know.

  337. I’m drooling! I’m not an office-supply-aholic, but I am most definitely a pen/pencil-aholic. As are many others judging from the number of comments here!

  338. addicted to office supplies! Right here! Stage left! Pick Me! ๐Ÿ™‚

  339. My son is a total pencil addict, would love this…lets see, 1 in 337 chance at this point, crossing my finger.

  340. Ooh, new pens are so cool. Much better than the dollar store ones. My lonely pencil cup is in need of new tennants. I keep blaming my 12 yr old for stealing all my pens and pencils. Maybe there’s another pen lover in the neighborhood stealing my stash when I’m not looking. ๐Ÿ™‚

  341. yay, fun office supplies!

  342. I would love to win! I’m tired of trying to find a pencil or a pen and end up having to use a crayon or a lip liner to take a message or write a note. I think my kids take them on purpose so they can laugh at me.

  343. Please help feed my husband’s writing implement thievery problem!

  344. I love me some office supplies. My mother never let me go school supply shopping with her, because I NEEDED all of the different notebooks and pens and such. For school, of course.

  345. What is better than office supplies? Office supplies that are pretty!

  346. i think grad school makes you eat pens. seriously.

  347. I confess that I too feel there can never be enough office supplies. I have discovered that back to school shopping can become a beautiful thing if I just get myself something pretty while I’m at it. Last time, it was a bunch of recycled pens and pencils. Pencils made of recycled denim. Joy!

  348. I love office supplies too. ๐Ÿ™‚

  349. Even though I’m way past school-age, September makes me think of pens!

  350. me me? am I in time?

  351. Yes, please! I love love love office supplies.

    Cant wait

  356. My husband has this horrible habit of leaving a pen in his work pant’s pocket every day (please, no jokes; i.e. is that a pen in your pocket…..). So, every time I do a load of laundry, I find a pen at the bottom of the washing machine. Luckily, not one single item of clothing has been ruined. I guess I should empty his pockets before doing the laundry, but who has time for that ?!?! Point being, we go through a lot of pens in my house, and this would be a fitting prize for my family. My husband would be very grateful.

  357. Wow. There’s a lot of SUPPLY love here. Who knew?

  358. I was just laid off. (And I’m not even in finance.) Pens would cheer me up.

  359. Pick me. My son steals all of my pencils and he still doesn’t do his homework. I can’t believe I’m number 359…wow

  395. As a copywriter at an advertising agency, I can’t have enough big pens, small pens, pens that dance a jig, highlighters, Sharpies (every size, shape, color, and, yes, scent), CD markers, felt tips pens…in fact, the owner revoked my Staples rights because, well, you can imagine the cost of a pen that dances a jig.
