CapUp / Pen


CapUp frees you from trouble when searching for your misplaced pen caps by joining the cap and the pen together.
You will no longer have to take off the cap to write, instead you push it UP.
A slot is punched out on the shell to connect the pen and the cap. Other benefits come together with this.
No need to worry about the nib because the cap will be long enough to cover it when pulled back.
