No. When your school places an order the pens do not need to be ordered. After reviewing many different pens for the laminated planner we have found the best pen to be Staedtler non-permanent fine line black pen. The pen normally retails for about $4.50 each. As we are the largest buyer of this pen in Australia we can provide the pens to schools for the discounted price of only $2.75 including taxes and delivery. There are 10 pens to a box and the minimum quantity is 200 pens.
