Today, many children do their homework with electronic devices and submit the electronic version. They use Wechat to socialize and contact others. The ritual of writing seems to have diminished a lot. In the childhood of the post-70s and post-80s, owning a pen that belongs to you was like owning the whole world.
Speaking of the Chinese stationery products that have the best quality,
The Hero pens once wanted by everyone must be mentioned.
They have been used to write many love oaths, as well as pinned on the chest pocket to show the identity of an intellectual. They are the Hero Gold Pen, which were first made in 1931 by the Wolff Pen Co. based in Shanghai. With a history of 88 years in making pens, the company's pens are not only welcomed by customers but also given as presents when the Party and National leaders pay formal visits to other countries. The pens have also been used to sign the important documents during the historic moments of China. Other than that, they have been the designated pens for the national and local people's congresses and the political consultative conferences. Among those pens the Hero 100 14K Gold Pen is the most classic for its highest sale in about half a century.
Despite its old age, Hero is trying to win the hearts of the young through innovation and craftsmanship by developing and making breakthroughs. It has rolled out some mind-blowing ideas recently, for example, it cooperated with the hot film The Wandering Earth to push out its customized pens and launched its drinkable “ink” with the beverage company RIO, which will be on exhibition this time, displaying Hero's cross-border innovation.
