Zebra Pen - Z-Grip Review

About Zebra Pen

Zebra Pen Corporation was founded in New York in August 1982 as an independent corporation wholly owned by Zebra Co. Ltd., of Tokyo, Japan.

The Zebra trademark was adopted in 1914. Legend has it that Mr. Ishikawa, founder of Zebra Co. Ltd., wanted a company name that would be memorable and also appropriate for their export business to other countries. He took an English/Japanese dictionary and, opening it Japanese style from the back, started with the “Z” words. He stopped at “Zebra”.

Upon further research, Mr. Ishikawa found that zebras are gentle animals with a strong family herding instinct. This was an important attribute, since he wanted to build a business in which employees and customers were all part of a family-like culture. The fact that the zebra looks like it is decorated with large calligraphic pen strokes may have also appealed to the visual image he was seeking.

The name Zebra is as unique as the products we sell. Zebra Pen Corporation offers an extensive line of writing instruments including ball point pens, highlighters, mechanical pencils, gel rollers, and correction pens. We stand behind our name and guarantee quality, satisfaction and an ultimate writing performance.

Our Thoughts

I've been using Zebra pens for a very long time. They are the go-to pen when I need a pen that is durable, long lasting and comfortable in my hand. And they come in a variety of colors. 

I love the different colors and it's more than just because different colors makes things more interesting. Having the different colors makes keeping track of my kids' special events and sports games ├╝ber easy. Each of my kids has a different color and thankfully, Zebra makes all the colors corresponding to the colors my kids schedules are in. 

These pens are super comfortable in hand, too. They're completely comfortable not only in my hand, but my husband's hand as well. Even in our 11-year-old who is a lefty finds the pen comfortable enough to use all day at school. Zebra not only makes pens but they also make mechanical pencils which are superb for my boys at school! 

These are going to continue to be my go-to pens for home, work and school! You can visit Facebook, Twitter, or the Zebra Pen Website
