We all have a creative side, and wether that is on display publicly in our artwork, or tucked away privately in our journal, there is one pen that can handle it all: the Sakura Pigma Micron.

The Micron has been a long time favorite of artists, illustrators, crafters, writers, and just about anyone with a need for a high quality pen that they can count on. Why is it so popular? It is all about the ink.

The pigment ink used by Sakura was created over 25 years ago, and is widely known for its archival quality. The ink is permanent, waterproof, fade resistant, and doesn't bleed, smear, or feather on most paper types.

When customers are looking for an archival quality pen, the Pigma Micron is at the very top of the recommendation list. That alone makes this pen a JetPens Classic.

How do you use your Sakura Pigma Micron?

We introduced 78 colors of Diamine Fountain Pen Ink in September (now up to 80!), and now we have the ink swabs to match. This image is available on the product page of each individual ink color, and is now posted here for reference purposes.

What is your favorite color?

Our new stackable crayons from Baby Color are perfect for the young ones on your holiday shopping list!

These uniquely shaped crayons are designed with little hands in mind, and are easier to hold than traditional skinny stick crayons. The still have a nice fine tip though, which will give you the precise lines you need for outlining and coloring in smaller details.

The crayons are made with an all-natural vegetable-based formula, that will give you peace of mind during drawing time. As a bonus, they stack on top of each other like building blocks, which will give you a few more minutes of rest while your little ones are preoccupied with play time.

Available in Basic Color sets and well as a Pastel Color set, the Baby Color Stackable Crayons Bits are sure to bring a smile.
