As usual with the Platinum Preppy, I had a beast of a time getting the ink to start to flow. Once it did start, it writes decently smooth, though very stiff. However, the "blue black" ink is pretty much just blue ink. Nothing like the deep dark blue that comes in the Pilot Petit. There's also a significant amount of shading to the ink, which again, makes it look lighter than a true blue-black ink. For the price, it's fine, but I definitely prefer the Pilot Petit ink color and ease of use to this one.

Let me start by saying that I usually HATE gel pens. Hate them. They skip, the ink is uneven, I don't know what it is about them, but we just don't get along (I usually prefer marker pens or fountain pens). BUT I LOVE THESE PENS! They write incredibly smooth, the colors are vibrant, they worked immediately out of the packet, and they look great too. Very happy that I took a risk and decided to give these a try, I will definitely be purchasing more colors in the future.

The only caveat I can offer for this 6 color set is that the apple green is difficult to read on an off-white paper (Campus 6 mm ruled). All of the colors (even apricot orange) are vibrant enough that it's no issue, but I wouldn't use the apple green to write something that I expected another person to be able to read clearly.

This tape is adorable, tears cleanly, and looks great. Perfect for use on planners, as shown in the picture from JetPens. Love it and wish there were even more varieties available.

Luckily, I read another review noting the capacity of this notebook or I never would have bought it. As it stands, the notebook holds far more sheets of paper than the 25 sheet capacity listed in the description. I put about a third of a refill pack in it and it fits just fine (so it has somewhere around 40-50 sheets of paper in it at the moment). The size is perfect for note-taking in meetings and I love the ability to cleanly remove (or reorder) pages and add more when needed, without having to go to a new notebook. The yellow-green cover is much more yellow than green. I only did not give it 5 stars because the ring opening mechanism is a little tricky.

Easy writing felt tipped pen with just a hint of sparkle. The orange/gold is a very nice marigold color. I definitely plan to collect the whole set of these pens.

Verified Purchase
Great set of felt tipped pens. All of the colors are very bright and unsaturated; they're beautiful colors, but not very bold. I do wish Pilot had included pink or red and used their purple in place of one of those two, since the red and pink are very similar (I think the red looks more pink than the pink). These will be in heavy rotation on my desk.

Very easy to use sharpener. Got it for my 5 year old and he can use it with no problems. He loves the "pop" notification that the pencil is sharp.

Nice smooth paper with unique dotted lines. Works very well with all of my fountain pens. No bleed-through even with marker pens. The size is perfect for writing notes at work, both in number of pages and page size.

The pen writes smoothly and consistently and this is one of my favorite ink colors. My only gripe is that I can't write with it for long periods, because my hand will cramp due to the size, but it is a MINI pen, so that was expected.

Great bright colors. These write with a bold line and the colors are very saturated, better than I expected. However, they don't write consistently on some types of paper.
