Dec. 11, 2012 Winner Update – Sandra S has won the set of 4 pens from TUL. Congratulations, Sandra!
TUL pens has offered to host a giveaway of the set of four pens I am about to review. I must admit I’ve been a fan of the TUL pens since they first came out in 2006. TUL pens is a brand of OfficeMax and are only available there.
I thought it might be easiest to write my reviews with each of the pens and then post the review with the scanned photo.
For details on the Giveaway, skip to the bottom of this post.
Ballpoint pen review (Medium point)
Gel Pen (Medium)
Marker Pen (Fine)
Like most pen enthusiasts, I like my pens a certain way- rich flowing ink, a fine point and a weight that’s not too light and not too heavy, although, sometimes heavy is good if it’s weighted just right. These pens all had a smooth flow and except for one, they had a generous and even flow of ink. Two of the pens were fine point but the one I liked the most was the medium ballpoint pen.
I tested on two kinds of paper. In the photos above, I used Rhodia’s Ivory High Grade Vellum Paper (heavenly to write on with anything) and in the photos below I used a regular notebook.
There was slight bleed-through with two of the pens on the notebook paper, but not with the Rhodia.
Here’s more of a close up with the four points.
