I kept hearing from all my friends that these are the pens I need to use when I am journaling or writing notes to my kids. Once I saw them I had to give them a try – all those lovely colors were calling to me.

Amazon shipped them quickly to me and the were we packaged. These pens come in sets of 2, 3, 4, 6, 8, 10, 12, 14 and 20. I found out that the 14 pack has all the colors with no doubles so that is the set I purchased.


Now I have to apologize. It has been overcast these past few days So I wasn’t able to get a bright white picture no matter what I did!

These pens are clickers and have a medium point to them and they come with a tiny bit of wax on their tips to prevent any leaking during transit. I do prefer a fine point but I am very happy with these pens for so many reasons.


When I first tried them out I found them easy to grip and very comfortable to hold when you are writing. I love that! And the ink is wonderful! Dries so quickly and there is absolutely no smearing!

I love using them in my journal, my planner and writing notes to my family. They are the perfect pens to use  when writing and the colors are all so vibrant and beautiful.


The one thing I don’t recommend them for is Bible Journaling. I tried them out in my Inspire Bible and they did leak through the page. Also I don’t feel like these are best used for coloring. You can use them if you have small details that need filling but they do not blend at all.

Since I didn’t buy them to use for those purposes I an quite happy with them and use them everyday!
