I was gifted one of these pens by an incredibly thoughtful young lady, it was in 'hot aqua' of all colors, oh my, just saying that gets me flustered as we all know how boring I am and if it's transparent I probably like it the best. But alas hear I am on the first Wednesday of the year and waxing philosophical about a 'hot aqua' pen, go figure? The pen tip is near identical to my beloved Sharpie ultra-fine and although the Mark-it has received its share of naysayers saying it gets soft and squishy after some use, I am here to stick up for it. It has the great tip without the signature smell and the color selection is so much more varied (and less saturated). They have it in gray! My other favorite color after clear and white (yes I know shades not color but still...) The Sharpie pen is great no smell but the point misses the mark, it's no ultra fine point, nope. These type of pens make my printing look impeccable and I am pleased to brag that a couple people in the queue at the Post have mentioned how incredibly neat my printing is, which I beamed in response. If you are a Sharpie ultra-fine point fan, you should give these a whirl when you are looking for the same type of point but a more muted +varied color selection and no scent, which I don't mind, but it feels less toxic and that's a bonus, no? Do you have a pen that you feel makes you write better?
Pen Addict blog, great reviews + live samples and excellent comments from the peanut gallery!
The Japanese know their pens, seriously. I find this little known secret a mecca for cheap + good pen shopping. Bonus? You will almost always know when someone steals your pen because it's not from round these parts.
Want the Mark-it pen right now? Amazon has them here.
