As a Smiley360 member, I received an opportunity to try Paper-Mate Ink Joy Pens. I received a free pack of pens, free Walmart gift card to purchase another pack of pens and information to try, review, and share my opinions about them.
I received a pack of Paper-Mate Ink Joy 300 RT Pens. It is an 8 pack and comes with 8 different colors. Two of which are the traditional blue and black pens. They have a medium point and they are retractable. The colors include the traditional blue, black, lighter sky blue, purple, green, orange, red, and pink. I like the clip on the pens and they seem to be pretty durable. All the colors are great, very vibrant. I think my favorite color is the purple though. My favorite color is purple. These pens are very comfortable to hold and use, they have a grip on them too. I love the way they write. They write fluidly without any smearing. They really are a dream to write with!
I picked up a pack of Paper-Mate Ink Joy 550 RT with my Walmart gift card. This is a pack of 4 and once again, they are assorted colors. There is a traditional blue, black, purple, and a red pen. These also have a medium point. There isn’t too much different with these ones. They do look a little different but they have slightly more weight to them. Both sets of pens are pretty lightweight though. I did notice that the colors of the ink with the 550 RTs are just a little more vibrant and they write just slightly better than the 300 RTs. Both kinds are really great pens though. These are also very comfortable to hold and use and also have a grip on them too. But they are slightly better as well.
I have been using all these pens for a couple weeks now and I am in love with them. And that’s saying a lot because I am a very picky pen user. They have to write a certain way, feel a certain way, and the writing itself has to feel a certain way as strange as that sounds. These are great pens for me! I also noticed that after using them, I still have yet to have a problem with the ink just stopping. I get so annoyed with other pens that I have used that I have to scribble and scribble to get the ink going again but I am pleased to say that I haven’t had to do that with these pens. Ink Joy – good name!
Buy It: You can buy these pens at most stores in the stationery or office supply aisle. At Walmart the 8 pack of 300 RTs were $1.88 and the 550 RTs were $4.97. If you want more information about InkJoy Pens, visit: http://inkjoy.papermate.com/Global.aspx
