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 Pens: (links are affiliate) Paper Mate InkJoy 100 | Paper Mate InkJoy 300 RT | Paper Mate Write Bros | Paper Mate Write Bros Grip | Papermate Eagle | Papermate ProFit | Paper Mate Profile Elite | Bic Round Stic | BIC Round Stic Grip | BIC Cristal Bold | Pilot EasyTouch | Pilot B2P Bottle to Pen – Ball Point | Pentel EnerGel | Pilot G2 1.0 | Pilot Precise V7 | Pilot Precise V7 RT | Pilot Precise Grip Bold | Paper Mate Flair
The Conclusion: Red is one of the three basic colors, so tons of varieties are available. I don’t often write things out with red… it’s my go to color for crossing things off my lists.
