CLEANPEN™: HOLIDAY STOCKING STUFFER THAT KILLS GERMS offers Texas-designed anti-bacterial product for ink pens, and the grocery story check out stylus

DALLAS:  Balch-Springs, Texas-based company Claxton Creative, LLC Tuesday announced it has begun selling the Texas-designed Cleanpen™ with an additional personalized carrying pouch at a discounted rate in time for the holidays, and the fast-spreading cold and flu season.

Cleanpen,™ a product designed and licensed exclusively for retail to Claxton Creative, LLC by Georgetown-based, features an ergonomic and lightweight shell that contains an anti-microbial sponge that kills up to 99 percent of germs on contact.

“We are excited to begin selling the Cleanpen™ and the customizable pouches on our website in time for the holidays and the emerging cold and flu season,” said Claxton Creative Owner Donald Claxton.

“With our hand-made pouches, which also can be monogrammed with up to three letters, we are sure these will make excellent stocking stuffers, as well as practical gifts for the coming holiday season,” Claxton said.

The holiday pricing for the Cleanpen™ is $14.95, which includes the Cleanpen™ shell, a stand to affix it to a desk, counter or, clipboard, and two anti-microbial sponges.  For an additional $4.00, a specially designed Cleanpen™ Pouch, which is hand-made in Balch Springs, Texas, is included.  An additional $3.00 includes personalized monogramming of up to three letters.

Because of the new pouches, Cleanpen™ becomes a more mobile product that can be used for cleaning ink pens before signing holiday gift receipts, before making out holiday gift lists, and even on the checkout terminal stylus used at grocery and department stores.

“We have established a great working relationship with and look forward to selling additional products they market in the future, including the commercially-designed, Cleanstylus, which affixes to checkout counter terminals with just a click,” Claxton said.

“With family visiting during the holidays, the onset of the cold and flu season, and the increased number of shoppers in retail outlets across the nation, it just makes sense to carry Cleanpen™ along and fight off as many germs at contact as possible,” Claxton said.

Claxton said his firm is using the Santa Can’t Get Sick approach as a subtle implication—“If Santa can’t afford to get sick during the holidays, then how can you?” Claxton said.
