There’s nothing more satisfying than seeing a piece of paper marked up with fluorescent ink. It signifies knowledge, organization, and rigorous thinking. It also doesn’t hurt that we’re obsessed with all the bright colors.

Everyone should have a good highlighter in their pencil case, but it can be intimidating to dig through all the choices we offer. To remedy that, we lived, breathed, and bled neon ink as we strove to find the best highlighters for a range of books and paper.

We all have memories of our elementary school days, using gummy pink erasers--that rubbery smell that lingered on our fingers for days, the inevitable pink smear and occasional hole in our math homework, and red faces from frantically blowing wads and wads of blackened pink residue.

Erasers have come a long way since then, especially with the advent of plastic erasers and the revamp of the formula in rubber erasers. How do erasers work exactly? Eraser molecules are “stickier” than paper molecules and thus are able to lift graphite (what pencil lead is made of) from the paper.

With hundreds of erasers on our website, we know the magic of a good eraser and we’re looking for more eraser converts! Whether you’re an eraser expert or not yet convinced that erasers warrant so much attention, this article will shed some light on why having a good eraser can change your life.
