The purpose is to keep products or services being offered for sale in the minds of the potential customers so that when the potential customers decide to buy, they buy from the provider of the promotional item. Many promotional items exist, and sales forces are constantly looking for new items.

The present invention is a combined pen and temperature indicator.
