***Disclosure: I received complimentary samples to facilitate my review. All opinions are 100% honest, and have not been influenced in any way.***
I have a confession to make: I am addicted to pretty pens. I try to avoid Plain Jane blue or black ballpoint pens whenever possible. I love bright, vibrant color, especially when sending handwritten notes. I just feel like something colorful and fun helps put more of ME into my letters. Blue and black pens are fine, but with colored Gel Pens, there's a literal rainbow of possibilities.
I have to admit, though, that not all gel pens are created equal. Many of them don't write well, or they smear very easily, leaving weird, colorful trails in their wake. It can be frustrating, to say the least. No one wants to spend time writing a letter just to have it become a big, smeared mess! I'm sure some of you can relate, no?
Recently, I was introduced to the brand new Paper Mate® InkJoy® Gel Pens™. I've been a fan of this brand since I was a kid and used their pens and pencils at school. My favorites were the erasable pens, but I don't think they make them anymore. After all, it has been about a thousand years since I was a kid. At least that's what my kiddos think.
Now that my children are in school, they seem to be just as enthusiastic about having great, colorful gel pens to write and doodle with. I couldn't wait to show them these InkJoy Gel Pens and see what they could create! My oldest, who is 16, drew the pretty picture you see above. Notice something? Hint: There are NO SMEARS!
The new Paper Mate® InkJoy® Gel Pens™ are available in pack sizes ranging from 1 to 14 pens with an MSRP of $2.49 to $24.99 at a variety of retailers nationwide including Amazon, Staples, Walmart, Office Depot and Target.
As you can see, this Paper Mate InkJoy Gel Pen assortment has every color in the rainbow, perfect for inspiring young minds to get creative. Whether they're drawing, taking notes, completing homework, or writing a handwritten letter, these InkJoy Gel Pens are up to the task!
We've had a blast creating notes, pictures, and scribbles with the Paper Mate® InkJoy® Gel Pens™. They write smoothly, and dry super-quickly which makes smearing a thing of the past. The colors are also incredibly vibrant, and true to the hue on the casing.
Overall, I would definitely recommend these pens for students heading back to school, or maybe to Moms like me who still enjoy the lost art of handwritten nots. These pens open up a whole rainbow of possibilities, and thanks to the fact that they dry rapidly, there will be no smears to ruin your creations.
