Shoplet and Pentel are both a great resource for office supplies. Gina’s Library of Reviews is happy to bring you this review of some of their products.

I received retractable ball point pens, mechanical pencil, and retractable gel pen. I love office supplies, especially pens. I collect pens and have been know to “borrow” ones I like the most.

My Review:

Gel pens are something I always grab when I go to write something if given the choice. I love the way the just glide over the paper. Sometimes the ink does not dry right away and I end up smearing it and ink on my hand. I hold my pen weird. I don’t have that problem with this gel pen. The ink dries quickly. It does have a bit of weight to it though. Personally it’s hard for me to write with because of the way I hold my pen. My daughter loves it though.

My Review:

A pencil is a must have when doing crafts. I have always preferred mechanical pencils.  I am in love with this pencil. The eraser is the best part. The eraser is a white eraser so it erases completely and easily. It can also get marked up easily since it’s white. I love that you can twist the eraser down when you don’t need it. The pencil even comes with an extra eraser.
