I'm a big fan of seafoam...
February 20, 2016
I'm a big fan of seafoam green, so I was very happy to finally see these pretty
highlighters come in such a nice color! However, on paper, the color is just
barely more blue than is labeled by the cap (since when was that ever 100%
accurate, lol), so for that I would deduct .5 of a star. That certainly doesn't
deserve an entire star taken off, because this highlighter performs very well.
Also, it's still my favorite color. I'm such a sucker for blues!
I have sampled it on a multitude of texts, including my own handwriting (HB
lead, Kokuyo Campus paper), and it did very well! In my highlighter
extravaganza, I tested it on young book gloss paper, old book paper, printed
paper, and a standard print off notes page I would get from one of my teachers.
On the glossy book paper the highlighter was quite light in comparison to my
other samples, probably due to the paper not really absorbing as much of it. If
it becomes damp, the ink will rub off or pool off.
The old book I used the Mildliner in was extremely yellowed, so the color was
different, but applied very well and stuck. It bled with the application of
Don't even try printed paper coming from your home inkjet. It will ruin this
highlighter if it is repeatedly done. Within a few centimeters I had to stop
using the highlighter, even on my higher quality copy paper.
The Mildliner worked very well on my classroom printout. The color was clear,
visible, and did not affect or was not affected by the ink on the paper.
Anywho, even if you don't get this color, I'd say get these if you want the
benefits of not only beautiful highlighters easy on the eyes, but also for that
neat double-ended feature! I'm sure it'll come in handy!
