Argos is set to lose one of its most recognisable features as it plans to stop using the traditional little blue pen and slip of paper to take orders.

The pens, slip and the catalogue have long been a staple of the high street store but the decision has been made to move to touch screens according to the Times (£).

The tiny pens with a small slip of paper are used for customers to write down the catalogue numbers of the items they wanted - but the system will now move to touch screens with the order going digitally.
