Uniball Gel RT Micro .38mm Pen Review

Uniball Gel RT Micro .38 mm

I've reviewed a bunch of Uniball Signo pens in the past, but the majority of them have come from JetPens, and are not usually available at many places within the US, especially not at any major retail office supply stores.  For that reason, I was excited when I learned that the Uniball Gel RT Micro .38 mm was available from OfficeMax, and also here from Amazon.com if you are so inclined. Most of my reviews of the Uniball Signo line have consisted of … [Read more...]

Uniball Style Fit 3 and 5 Color Multi Pens

The Uniball Style Fit Multi Pen shown in the 3 and 5 color versions, with the clip acting as one of the plungers.

When it comes to office supplies, the multi pen seems to be something that causes great consternation, but with any luck the Uniball Stlye Fit might change things a bit.  I feel as if for every positive piece of feedback on a multi-pen there are 5 negative pieces of feedback from someone else on that same pen, so I was excited when I first heard about this pen from The Pen Addict, who first saw it on the Scription blog.  Lucky for me, JetPens.com recently … [Read more...]

Uniball Signo and Zebra Sarasa Green Black Pen Review

The Zebra Sarasa .4mm (L) and the Uniball Signo DX .38mm in Green Black

With my recent discovery that I actually like the blue black inks out there and that they seem much more business appropriate than I would have thought, I started to wonder about some of the other combo colors that are partially black.  Being that I am a big fan of darker greens, I thought that green black would be a good next step to take from the blue black inks that I tried.  With that in mind, I picked up both the Uniball Signo and the Zebra Sarasa in … [Read more...]

Exclusive Review: Uniball Signo Gel Pen & Mechanical Pencil in One

The all new Uniball Signo MF2 Gel Pen and Mechanical Pencil.  Both writing points are a .5mm tip.

The good people over at Uniball have shown their generosity and let me get my hands on their new and yet unreleased Signo MF2 Gel Pen and Mechanical Pencil. Specific thanks go to @Uniball_Pen_Gal on Twitter. She works for the Uni-ball brand, and was the one responsible for sending this new pen over to me. When I started this blog I really just thought it would be a good excuse for me to buy some more office supplies to play with, and I could justify the … [Read more...]

Uni-ball Signo 207 Review

The Uni-ball signo in four colors.  From left to right: Orange, Black, Blue, Red.

I picked up these Uniball Signo 207 pens on a recent trip to Staples when I was looking for some new stuff to review.  I already tried some of the other Uniball Signo pens like the DX and the Bit from JetPens, which both have much finer points compared to these.  Because of the impressive performance of those pens with smaller points my assumption was that these pens must write as well if not better.  These Uniball Signo 207 pens are supposed to thwart any … [Read more...]

Uniball Signo DX .38 Review

Uniball Signo DX .38

I've seen quite a bit of praise regarding the Uniball Signo line of pens, particularly from everyone's favorite pen reviewer, dowdyism at The Pen Addict so the last time I ordered from JetPens I decided to pick one up...among other things. That deal they have for free shipping on orders over $25 always results in me spending more than I had intended. :) I also wanted to use this post to introduce you to the newest addition to the OfficeSupplyGeek team, … [Read more...]

Students damaged psychologically by pens!

Red pens are upsetting, do not look directly at the red pens.

What a horrible horrible thing to have happened. If you have not read this story yet, you should. It seems that for years now teachers have been inflicting intense irreversible psychological harm to their students, and thankfully now someone is stepping in and trying to put an end to it.  We must stop students damaged psychologically by pens. After reading that article, I think it is my duty to post some of my favorite red pens with a quick pen review … [Read more...]
