Back to School Event {Ergonomic pen - UGLee Pen}

Comfort pens are hard to come by in my house. It seems when I find a pen I love-- you all know what I am talking about-- the pen glides well, it feels nice on your fingers and hand, perhaps there is a finger cushion, it doesn't leave globs of ink all over you or the paper-- someone seems to come along and snatch it up! The pen snatchers must hear through the pen grapevine that there is a pen in the house that mom likes-- they say "let's take the pen to where the missing socks are! bwaa, bwaa, haaa!"

Ok-- that was a bit dramatic-- but in a way it's true...

I have found a pen I like. It's not pretty-- but man does it feel nice to write with! It would  be perfect for any high school or college student needing to take notes. It has a full-sized grip, great ink supply that writes smooth and flawless. It weighs hardly nothing at all--"The UGLee Pen only weights 11 grams. That is less than 1/2 ounce! Less mass, means less inertia, more comfort." UGLee Pen was researched and made by the Dr. James Lee. Read his story below:


As a medical student, I wrote volumes in terms of notes. In medicine, medical notes are all hand written. I averaged 20 full pages of hand written notes a day... day in and day out for years.
You can imagine how my hand kept cramping up! I spent a lot of time and money looking for a comfortable pen. After trying what I believe to be every pen out there, I failed painfully to find even one!
I was frustrated because most pens were not designed for comfort at all. The few that were listed as "comfort pen" were obviously mislabeled.
I was determined to create my own pen - one that would meet my expectations of comfort. Since then, I have spent over eight years to create the first truly comfortable pen. The pursuit of pen comfort became a hobby... no, an obsession during this eight year period. I dedicated an inordinate amount of my own time and resources in this endeavor...the result is the UGLee Pen. A pen that is not only the most comfortable pen, but is physician designed to be the most comfortable ergonomic pen around.
