I have an obsession with office supplies and I’m a bit of a pen hoarder. One thing that I enjoy doing is swatching out my writing utensils to see how the colors compare between brands.
The Test: Each pen is used on white notebook paper and a yellow legal pad. You can click on the image below for a larger view.
The Conclusion: Light green is probably one of the toughest colors to find a good quality pen. The Papermate Inkjoy and the Bic Round Stic performed horribly on white paper (and predictably so on the yellow paper). The Bic Cristal Bold fared better on white paper, with a nice bright line. And the Papermate Flair was the clear winner.
