A good pencil grip will encourage good hand posture while writing. A grip can alleviate joint pain and make writing more comfortable for those who write with a tight grasp. Store-bought pencil grips are easy to lose but luckily they are even easier to make. All you need is a rubber band to get started. Use vibrantly coloured rubber bands for a unique grip.
