I think I would have to be one of the first bloggers who has hand-written a blog post on paper. If you have not worked out why I wrote this post out on paper, the title of this post should have given it away.
Today, I am reviewing Paper Mate’s latest range of pens. The Paper Mate InkJoy 100. If you can read past my messy handwriting, this is like doing a live review – you can see the product in action.
The new Paper Mate InkJoy 100 pens will revolutionise the way you write – well at least to those who still write on paper. When I accepted to write this review, every email we exchanged, I was specifically reinforced that these pens “are the best” and that “I’ll love them”.
Since I live in a family where pens often go missing, the pen I cherish often ends up in another family member’s room, so we often use a lot of cheap pens that you can buy at a $2 shop. They are crap, have bad ink flow, and after a period of time holding them, you end up with blisters on your fingers.
However, I have to say, these reasonably cheap Paper Mate InkJoy pens are $0.45each and are nothing like those you’ll find at the $2 shop. They are a lot softer and curve in between your fingers.
On the advertising pamphlet that came with my gift pack of 16 pens, it says:
This pioneering pen features a triangular shape to provide comfort and control while writing and the translucent colour-tinted body gives the pen a modern, refreshing look.
- Yes, it’s comfortable to hold
- Yes, it looks futuristic
- Yes, it writes well
- Yes, I now have 16 of them, so I should never be without a pen again
I am not one who follows what the latest and greatest pen is out there, but for $4.49 for a 10 pack, these pens are not too bad, especially if you want to display the multiple colours on your desk, or in your school pencil case.
I also didn’t know you can write a “feature list” for a pen, but Paper Mate has published one
- Paper Mate’s revolutionary InkJoy writing system, giving you the best in effortless writing
- The InkJoy writing system starts quickly without dragging, requires minimal pressure from your hand, and delivers crisp, clean lines every time
- Triangular shape for comfort and control
- Transparent colour-tinted body for a refreshing look
- Available in medium point in the following vibrant ink colours: black, blue, red, purple, green, orange, turquoise, magenta, brown, and lime
You can purchase the PaperMate InkJoy 100 pens at all good Newsagencies and Major stationary stores.
