LogoI love working with Shoplet. They always offer great office supplies for review. This time was no different. This time I got to review some pens from Pentel. I love pens, I have an addiction to them really. 

 Pens

This time I received gel pens and twist-erase pencils

Product Description:

My Review:

I received gel pens in different colors and in both .07 and .05 point size. I also received a pencil in both .07 and .05. These pens are my new favorite pens! I love gel pens but they are not all made with the same quality. Some skip when writing, or don’t dry very fast so you end up smearing it. Another problem I’ve had in the past is that the gel ink will bleed through the paper.

Finally a gel pen that is perfect. I loved the feel of the pen in my hand, it just glided across the paper. It dried quickly and did not smear. I love that it’s retractable. The ink also did not bleed through thin notebook paper. I love the different colors. I received purple (my favorite color), blue, black, and pink. The pens are also well constructed.

My daughter is in college and loves mechanical pencils. She writes heavy so she has to use .07mm lead. Of course she kidnapped my .07mm pencil when I got it. That’s ok, I still have the .05mm one. These are very well constructed as well. I love that they are twist. You don’t lose the lead point this way. It’s very comfortable in your hand as well and the eraser is white so it erases clean. 

Pentel is a company we’ve all known and love. I think Shoplet is a great one stop shop for all of your office supplies. They sell everything from pens, pencils, to paper. You can’t go wrong.
