Product Review: Chalko Gel Pens set of 48

20160627_182204These gel pens are amazing. The colors are crisp and clear. Usually with gel pens, I have issues with the ink flowing. Not with these. The ink didn’t skip on any pen and the flow was nice and smooth. I didn’t notice much smearing but there was a little bit which is to be expected with gel pens. There are metallic, normal, pastel, glitter and mixed ink pens in this pack of 48.

There is even a WHITE gel pen. Other sets I have, and are lined up for review as well, don’t have a white pen. This has several reds which is a rarity in the other sets as well. I LOVE that these gel pens don’t have problems with the ink or with the colors. There are a few shades in each color, except black and white.

I really have no complaints about these gel pens other than I want more! LOL.

These gel pens can be found on Amazon for $12.96 for a set of 48 pens.

Product Review: Rongtai Office Fine Line Markers Pack of 24 Assorted Colors



These markers come in a set of different colors. Every color of the rainbow and more are included in this set of 24 markers. There are black, grey, browns, reds, pinks, purples, oranges, yellows, greens and blues. I will warn that some of the colors on the lids to not match what shows on the paper. One of the yellows comes out more orange. It happens to be that same yellow, that is broken. It is the only one in the pack of 24 that I have problems with. The base of the pen tip and where the lid ends, is tore about 1/2 of the pen base around. It’s still usable but is VERY sensitive to use and moves out of place easily.IMG_20160222_215850034

The pens are easy to hold as they are each six sided pens. I like these more as pens than markers. The tip, which is 0.4 mm is very small. While they can get into the smallest spaces, it does take longer to color bigger spaces on pictures. I am overall happy with this set of pens/markers and the variety of colors. The only thing I would change would be the “case” they come in. It’s one of those flimsy plastic cases. Mine had a hole in the bottom of it so a few pens fell out as soon as I picked it up out of the box. Unless using tape to hold it shut, the pens/markers will move around and if you’re OCD about the order of your colors, it will drive you nuts. I did throw the case away and put these in my own case.

I saw that a lot of people were complaining about the pens/markers being dried up when they received them. None of mine were dried up and usable straight out of the package. Also a lot of people are complaining about the case which is an easy to solve fix by using your own. I understand that not all cases are going to be usable and usually have one or two on hand for situations like this.IMG_20160222_215818305

These markers are available for $19.99 on Amazon. They are sold by Comix. I would definitely purchase another set!
