I received a sample package from Pilot Pen and Shoplet.com for this review. No other compensation was received, and all opinions are my own.
Being a homeschool family and having another in college, we go through a lot of pens. It's great to be able to use new pens and share them with you all. Shoplet.com, the online office superstore, sent me a sample package of the newest Pilot Pens with some exciting new features.
Do you love using a gel pen, but wish you could wipe away your mistakes easily and cleanly? Try the new Pilot FriXion Clicker Erasable Pen. This new pen from Pilot can erase all of your mistakes, easily and quickly without damaging the paper nor will you get any crumbs from an eraser. It is a retractable pen, just press the clip down, and the eraser is at the top of the pen.
This pen uses a special formula of gel ink to erase that is thermal sensitive. When you use the eraser tip, you generate heat which makes the ink disappear. I will be using this pen for my novice drafting of homes so I can erase the many mistakes I do. But there is a catch to this pen - don't use this for important documents. *If this ink, either on paper or in the pen, is exposed to high temperatures, it will disappear. To make it reappear, you just pop the pen in the freezer and cool to 14F degrees.
Purchase the Pilot FriXion Clicker Erasable Pen at Shoplet.com for only $2.09 each.
Here is another Pilot FriXion that my son, the college student, is happy to have. Have you ever made a mistake when you highlighted something in a book, or perhaps you would have liked to highlighted something in a book and didn't want that highlight there forever? Your worries are over with the Pilot FriXion Lite Erasable Highlighter so that you can erase all of your 'oops.'
My son likes to use this erasable highlighter in his textbooks. He can even use it in his rental books as it erases without a trace! The bright yellow highlighter is easy to spot in his books.
*This highlighter does have the same drawbacks as the FriXion Clicker that I described above, but this is really not a hindrance. Even my son says, when will this highlighter ever get in such high temps?
The FriXion Highlighter comes in a box of 12 pens for only $11.22 at Shoplet.com.
Here is a high style pen that comes with an affordable price at Shoplet.com. The Pilot Acroball PureWhite pen will give you super smooth writing, while looking good. The ink is this pen is a hybrid between gel ink and ball point pen ink so that it is fast drying but also gives a smooth writing experience.
This pen is easy to write with as the barrel is a bit larger and it has a nice grip on it. The fine point combined with this unique ink does make writing easy. My 92 year old grandmother fell for this pen, and it is now hers. She says she can grip it well and write well with it.
