The Sharpie Pen Review


There are lots of reviews out there of The Sharpie Pen and I have been writing with mine for a while now.  I don't know why but I never got around to writing up my Sharpie Pen review until now.  They come in fine point in red, blue, black and green and are available at most stores that I have visited.  Amazon has the assorted color packs available in both a 4 pack and 14 pack.  There is also a 4 pack of black only available, and both Staples and OfficeMax … [Read more...]

Exclusive Review: Post-it Flag+ Gel Pens

The new Post-it Brand Flag+ Gel Pen line up.  2 colors, 2 size points.

I'm sure you have noticed that I have recently done a few Post-it Flag Pen reviews here, and you are probably thinking, great, here is another one. But before you decide to move on to doing actual work instead of reading blogs for the day, hang on a second.  Although these pens are similar to the permanent marker version, and the ballpoint versions I recently reviewed, it is exciting to see these pens will soon be offered in a gel version.  Even more … [Read more...]

The Sharpie Stainless Steel Fine Point Permanent Marker with Black Ink.

I'm sure that just about anyone who has ever read this blog has used a Sharpie before, and probably has more tan just one of them in their desk drawer or wherever they keep their office supplies.  It is a favorite for everyone from office workers, to autograph seekers, to arts and crafts hobbyists.  Naturally when I saw Susan Wassel, their PR Manager (aka @sharpiesusan on Twitter) mention that they were coming out with a Stainless Steel Sharpie, I … [Read more...]

Uni-ball Alpha Gel HD Ballpoint Pen – 0.7 mm – Green Grip

Woody shows the Uni-ball alpha gel HD ballpoint pen and its cushy grip

I actually forgot for a while that I even had this Uni-ball Alpha Gel HD Ballpoint Pen .7mm pen until I was straightening out my desk a bit last night and I came across it again. I had initially purchased it from a few months ago and used it for a little bit before writing this review. For the most part, I don't usually buy ballpoint pens to use unless there is something particularly unique about them, and this pen fits that criteria because of … [Read more...]

Uni-Ball Vision Needle Micro

Woody shows off the Uniball Vision Needle Micro that was so kindly given to me by the friendly folks at Uni-Ball for a review.

The Uni-Ball Vision Needle Micro (via Amazon) in this review was given to me by Uni-Ball themselves, specifically by Steve aka Uniball_USA on Twitter who also provided some great feedback for this review on a Uni-Ball Jetstream.  This is just another example of what I was talking about in this post when I said that Twitter was a great way to keep connected to the world of office supplies.  The folks there are a great resource for all kinds of information, … [Read more...]

Paper Mate Liquid Flair Medium Point (previously Liquid Expresso) Review

Paper Mate Liquid Flair 8 Pack

I have always been a big fan of the Paper Mate Liquid Flair pens, but before this review, it had been a long time since I used them. The first thing I noticed upon revisiting these pens was the name, are these Liquid Flair pens, or are they Liquid Expresso pens? My old ones that I bought back in 2002 or so are clearly labeled Liquid Expresso...but when I ordered them from the package said Liquid Expresso, and some of the pens were labeled Liquid … [Read more...]

Pilot Petit 1 Fountain Pen Blue Black

  The incredibly nice folks from were kind enough to send me the Pilot Petit 1 mini fountain pen with Blue Black ink so I could test it out and do a review on it.  I've seen this pen around on various websites, and always thought it looked pretty interesting, so I was excited to get the chance to test it out.  I was also intrigued by the whole combo blue black ink since I have never tried any of these types of multi colored inks … [Read more...]

Uni-ball Power Tank Ballpoint Pen – Pt. 1

Uniball Power Tank Review

I don't plan on making all of my review multiple parts, however I do have an experiment in mind that I want to try with this Uniball Power Tank, so I think it requires a multi-part approach. The Uni-ball Power Tank is designed to function in difficult situations such as wet surfaces, cold temperatures, and upside down. offers this pen for $3.00 in multiple body colors (red, white, blue, light blue, and pink and they also offer red, blue, and … [Read more...]
