Help me find the perfect pen... 1000 of them! I have a very specific type of marker in mind - in fact, I've already bought one of them - but I'm having trouble finding this type of marker available in mass quantity. Help?

I need to find a:
  • Dry erase marker
  • Black
  • Fine tip
  • Must have a pen clip (so a clip that could help it hang on to a binder, for example)
  • Must need to be small diameter - more like a pen than a thick marker - about 1/4" in diameter
And I need to order 800-1000 of them.

This would be perfect - I have a few of these - but can't find out how to order more. I've contacted the retailer and tried to contact the manufacturer with no luck. Can you help, Metafilter?

have you tried contacting dixon ticonderoga and seeing if they will handle a bulk sale to you?

By going through Amazon Supply, I can add 84 one-dozen boxes to my cart. Would that work?

Dixon does sell them direct, you just need to contact them.

If you can use a lower quality item, here's a 4/$1 pack from dollartreedirect. You can probably find a sample one at any Dollar Tree.

Misterart has a good price if you get their "gold" membership, which is worth it for these 1000 pieces.

You could call either place to confirm pricing and possibly get it lower.

two other similar pens to look for would be the staedtler lumocolor non-permanent universal pen or the stabile ohpen non-permanent universal pen. both are available in a range of colors.
