Ball pens are still extremely popular, despite the advent of computer technology. They can be used for a number of different purposes, such as to make lists, fill out important documents, and write notes and cards for loved ones. Unlike other types of pen, the ink that is used in a ball pen dries almost instantly, ensuring that smudges are left on the piece of paper.

Ball pens can be purchased in various colors, the most common of which are blue and black. These pens are used in offices around the country, and can be used for various functions. Other ball pen colors include green and red. The ink inside the ball pen is a thin unit, and leaves the pen via a ball-shaped tip on the top of the item.

Ballpoint pens were criticized when they were first invented as some people thought that they did not produce handwriting as neat as a fountain pen or ink pen. The ball pen was designed to be a more reliable and less messy alternative to the fountain pen, and are today among the most commonly used pens in the world. They are frequently used in schools, by both teachers and students, and often include a tip which is used to protect the pen and the ink inside.

Disposable ballpoint pens are cost-effective and usually come in a set which consists of several pens. These pens may be the same color or various shades. Disposable ball pens are usually disregarded once the ink has been used. Refillable ballpoint pens allow users to replace the ball-shaped tip inside the tip quickly and easily.

László Bíró registered the patent for the ball pen in 1938, and consists of a ball which is used to separate the ink and the surface that is being written on. This ball continuously rotates when the pen is being used and ink is generated via the reservoir inside the pen. A socket keeps the ball in place, which secures it in position but allows it enough room to move when someone is using the pen.

Ballpoint pens are available in a number of different sizes. The width of the ballpoint is used to determine the size, and this is measured in millimeters. These pens can range from ultra fine ballpoint pens, which usually had a 0.1 mm ball, up to pens with a 0.5 mm or 0.7 mm ball.

Elkos pens are one of the most recognized manufacturers of ballpoint pens in the world, with a large number of ballpoint pens available for purchase. Other products manufactured by the company include gel pens and pen refills. Some products are available with finger grips, which provide protection to the hands when writing on a piece of paper. Other pens are slimmer in appearance, and contain the company's logo on the side of the pen. These "pocket-sized" pens are small enough to fit inside a shirt or coat pocket.
