Pens have come a long way from when humans still wrote with feather quills! Now there are many different types of writing utensils, so it can be challenging to figure out which one is the best for you!
Pencils are many people's first writing instrument, as graphite is easy to erase. Popular pen brands such as Lamy and Kaweco make high-quality mechanical pencils and lead holders.
The modern pen comes in many different forms, some more traditional, some newer, some very expensive, and some not.
If you are a student or someone who does a lot of writing, a fountain pen might be a good choice because it is refillable, cutting down on waste. Many fountain pens can use either ink from a bottle or pre-filled disposable ink cartridges. While ink comes in various prices, even if used daily, a bottle of ink lasts a very long time. While a high-quality fountain pen can cost hundreds or even thousands of dollars, there are many entry-level fountain pens that write very well and will not break the bank.
Ballpoint pens use oil-based ink, making the writing lighter than rollerball pens but much more deliberate. Ballpoint pen ink also does not fade to the same point as a roller-ball pen. Some people find ballpoint pens a little scratchy because of the slower delivery of the ink. However, because less ink is used when writing with a ballpoint pen, they tend to last longer than rollerball pens, making them great for jotting down to-do lists or writing quick tests on sticky notes.
Rollerball pens use water-based inks, making the writing appear more vibrant and crisp. Depending on the make of the pen, both pens can be refillable. However, they are not interchangeable. Rollerball ink flows more freely than ballpoint ink. Many prefer to use rollerball pens to write greeting cards or pen a short notes. Pens that use water-based inks often are bold on the page and can create thicker, more defined lines.
Gel ink is a unique ink that is like a combination of ballpoint ink and rollerball ink. It is thicker than rollerball ink, as it is a water-based gel. Gel pens also come in a huge range of colours because gel ink uses pigment instead of dye. For many students who take a lot of notes, gel pens are popular as you can colour-code your notes with them. If you are looking for one kind of pen that can come in a range of different colours, a gel pen might be exactly what you are looking for.
