TORRANCE, Calif., Feb. 22, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Conversation along the red carpet at the 85th Annual Academy Awards may not be limited to "Who are you wearing?", but might include "What are you writing with?" thanks to Pentel of America's participation during The Oscars.

Pentel was selected as the pen supplier of the Oscar Fan Experience. As such, over 850 lucky fans will be selected to sit alongside the red carpet to cheer for their favorite actor, actress and director. And if they're lucky enough to snag an autograph, they'll be armed with a Pentel pen to get it.

"We're honored to participate in such an historic event," states Pentel Digital Marketing Manager, Jason Cole. "Based in Southern California, Pentel has a deep connection with Hollywood and we are happy to support The Oscars."

Pentel will be supplying nearly 1,000 RSVP RT pens in a variety of colors as well as a scratch pad for fans lucky enough to get a quick signature from their favorite performer. Plus, Pentel will award one lucky fan with a year's supply of Pentel products.
