Each hour 2,500,000 plastic bottles are used by Americans alone which translates to 22 billion bottles per year in the U.S. Unfortunately, less than 1 in 3 of these bottles are recycled. For everyone who already thinks green to everyone who is discovering the significance of living eco-friendly, put a B2P Gel Ink Pen or Petball Ballpoint Pen in your hand as a daily reminder of the earth we live in. Designed with the environment in mind, Pilot offers two special lines of pens made from recycled plastic bottles.
The Majolica Majorca Style Fit design is the product of a collaboration between Uni-ball and Shiseido, whose Majolica Majorca cosmetics emulate pop-glamour with bright colors to match. The psychedelic pen line will add a burst of color to your pencil bag or purse!
So which one is your favorite?
Oftentimes you need to use ink pens when writing on documents or when taking notes. But alas, what if you make a mistake? Fortunately, JetPens carries a few different brands of erasable pens so that you can correct any errors made with these special ink pens.
There are three main types of erasable ink pens:
1. Thermo-sensitive Erasable Ink Pens
The ink becomes transparent when exposed to heat such as that from friction. The heat makes the ink completely transparent, for a true erased effect.
The Pilot FriXion line is an excellent example of this technology, and is available in a variety of different gel ink pens, markers and even highlighters!
The Uni-ball Fanthom gel ink pens also have a thermo-sensitive ink, and will erase cleanly by using the rubber sides of the cap.
**Please note that because of the nature of these ink formulas, we strongly advise against storage in any high temperature areas (don't leave these pens in a hot car), and we recommend to avoid high friction situations where your papers may be rubbing together (shuffling a stack of papers written on with these pens etc).
2. Erasable Ink Pens + Ink Erasing Marker
The other type of erasable pen is the one that comes with a partner, the "eraser" pen. These pens erase when a separate erasing ink is applied.
The Stabilo Point 88 Colorkilla Erasable Fineliner Marker Pens we carry do not erase by heat, nor do they need a rubber eraser to remove ink. Instead, this pen set contains a special eraser pen that makes the ink vanish when applied!
The white "Colorkilla" pens in this set will make the ink of the specially marked "erasable" pens disappear completely. Since any areas covered with the Colorkilla ink will not take the erasable pens any longer, Stabilo conveniently includes matching colors of their standard Point 88 Fineliner pens, so that you can write over these erased areas with ease.
3. Traditional Erasable Ink Pens
Lastly, we have the erasable ink pens that rub away with an ink eraser such as the Uni-ball Signo gel ink pens.
Like pencils, these erasable gel ink pens need the rubber eraser on their cap end to erase. This traditional method is used not only in pens but also in highlighters, such as with the Uni-ball Propus Erasable Highlighters.
With some many different styles of erasable pens available, it may be hard to choose! Do you have a favorite erasable pen from JetPens?
This post contains an outdated version of the Pilot Petit Pen System. For the newest version, see this post!
Pilot has recently redone their Petit pen line!
The whole system has been revamped. The line is now a customizable system consisting of separate pen bodies and ink cartridges. They are available in three different nib types: a fountain pen (Petit1), marker pen (Petit2) and brush pen (Petit3). Choose a pen body type and then choose your favorite ink cartridge color to customize your Petit pen (sold separately).
The ink cartridges are compatible across all three body styles. Select your nib and body style and ink color to create your favorite pen combination!
The Petit1 pen bodies have the same fountain pen nibs as the original line and is available in four different body colors.
The new Petit2 pens have a felt tip or "sign pen" nib. The body styles for these pens are slightly different than their Petit1 fountain pen counterparts, as only the barrel and clip are colored.
The new Petit3 pens have a calligraphy type brush tip. Like the Petit1 and Petit2, the body colors are transparent. The clip on these pens however, is a solid color.
The ink cartridges can be used with any of the Petit pen models, allowing you to fully customize your Petit pen.
What do you think will be your favorite Petit combination?
