Review: Paper Mate InkJoy 100 – Colourful Pens, Easy To Write

Example writing with Paper Mate InkJoy pens

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 Colourful Paper Mate InkJoy pens

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.

How the Paper Mate InkJoy 100 pens arrived

I also didn’t know you can write a “feature list” for a pen, but Paper Mate has published one
