I found this item fantastic for what I neded it for, It came with a pen incuding a velcro piece to stick the pen to the poster and colour stickers - coul'nt ask for anything more - It is pretty durable aslo.
My school ordered 2 wall planners for our offices, they came quickly and look smart. The only issue we have with them is; because they are laminated they are hard to write on. It does come with a pen but this is like a dry wipe, it does not stay and it is too thick to write in the boxes. We opted for a permenent mark in the end, which is the only thing that worked on it. If it was not laminated but instead just printed on poster style paper it would have got 5 stars!
