A little PLUS Questionnaire

Hi all, I'm back with a little questionnaire for you regarding Plus Decoration pens.








These pens deliver a very thin tape with yards and yards (6 meters) of continuous art for your projects.  They work much like "White Out" tape but only better :o)  They also have refill cartridges.

1. Have you seen or heard of them?
    If Yes, where?

2. Who would you consider the decoration pen most appropriate for:

    (a) Children 6-12yrs
    (b) Teens
    (c) Adults

3. How much would you expect to pay per pen?

4. Would you purchase them for yourself, children or others?

5. Of The five designs shown above, which do you feel are most desirable?

6. Would you use them in your crafting or card making?

7. Would you consider using designs such as Christmas or other holidays?

8. What type of store would you expect to find these pens?


Thank you for your opinions.  I appreciate your comments.

Now for the FUN part!!!  I get to do a giveaway!!!

PLUS has sent me a box of goodies to give out to my readers (YAY!)... I'll select a couple winners randomly from your comments on this post and will be back on Monday, Sept 16th. 

Thanks!

Annie Wills said...

1. Yes. I bought one on clearance at Joann's after Christmas last year because I had never seen them before and it looked really interesting. Since I haven't started Christmas gifts/cards yet, I haven't used it at all though.

2. Probably all of them...but I don't know if the younger children would be able to get the hang of them.

3. $3 max

4. Well...I already bought them for myself! I'd probably buy some more for kids and others too.

5. Flower border and hearts, followed by polka dots. The other designs I could see using one of the images at a time...but they don't strike me as borders much.

6. I could see using them on cards and gift-wrapping maybe.

7. I would be more apt to buy holiday themes than general themes probably.

8. Craft store...walmart...they definitely have more of a Michael's feel to me than an Archiver's.

Would love to see some more of these out there...I feel like I lucked out finding them the first time and haven't really seen them since!

4) I can see using them myself or sharing with others, including kids (Christmas stocking, Halloween gift bag, birthday party favors, etc)
5) love the hearts and the teal with white dots!
6) would be great for crafts and cards, scrapbook pages, Smashbook, etc
7) seasonal images? oh yes, how about holly and berries? little pumpkins?
8) Besides craft stores, I could see them at places like Target, Bed Bath & Beyond, Staples.

Karen Petitt said...

1. Saw something like this as a freebie on a UK card making magazine once - not seen them since.
2. I think they would appear to crafters and maybe younger kids.
3. Not sure about the price but I reckon £2-£3 which is about $5, I think lol.
4. I would use them and share them with my other crafting friends and blogging buddies - would be great for a blog candy.
5. I love the blue with the white polka dots and the border of flowers and grass, the hearts would be fab for Valentine/wedding etc.
6. You could use them on cards, layouts and would be a lovely way to decorate a plain and simple box.
7. Reindeer for Christmas would be good as would holly and berries, eggs for Easter, hearts for Valentines.
8. Craft shops and maybe stationery shops too - we have those here in the UK, not sure you have them in the US?
