Get Colorful with Paper Mate - Review and Giveaway

I received products for review from Paper Mate.  The opinions within this post are of my own and I was not influenced in any way.  Please do your own research before purchasing products or using services.  Your opinions and results may differ.

Most people have completed their back-to-school shopping but, if you're anything like me, you shop for supplies throughout the year.  Work meetings, decorating for PTA posters, or writing a letter to a friend are just a few reasons that you might want to consider Paper Mate's new products.  
Paper Mate InkJoy Gel Pens, Flair Candy Pops, and Color Lead Mechanical Pencils are available in a wide variety of colors.  Paper Mate has been providing progressive, performance-driven pens, pencils and correction products for more many years, and their new line of writing utensils makes jotting, drawing, and doodling a little more fun.

There's not a whole lot of things I'm picky about but I'm kind of a pen snob.  It's not necessarily about the brand but it's definitely about how well it writes and how it fits in my hand.  I also want the ink to go smoothly on paper.  Also, there's the big fact that I'm a lefty.  If any of you are in the same boat, you most likely know that we write differently and ink tends to smudge on our hands or on the paper.  It's irritating as all get out. I've been using the new Paper Mate products on all sorts of things and they pass my test.  

The Paper Mate Ink Joy Gel Pens are perfect for my adult coloring books and other projects. I can get all sorts of creative with the 14 different colors.  The ink stays on the paper instead of smearing the side of my hand.  Hooray for lefties like me, the ink dries quickly enough that it doesn't smudge.  These pens feature a ergonomic comfort grip that wraps around the entire pen and comes in 0.5mm fine point and 0.7mm medium point options.

Paper Mate limited edition Candy Pop Flair Pens come in 12 vivid candy colors.  These fine felt tip pens are perfect for journaling, writing in a scrapbook, or creating small designs.  Like the gel pens, they don't smudge.


As for the Paper Mate Clearpoint Color Lead Mechanical Pencils, they're Awesomesauce!  I've always used a pencil to jot events and work schedules in my appointment book, and now the Paper Mate Clearpoint Color Lead Mechanical Pencils have become my go-to for doing just that.  My oldest son, Logan, also likes to use them when working on college homework that requires writing.     These mechanical pencils feature a clear body so you can see the 0.7mm colored lead inside.  A jumbo eraser allows you to easily erase your mistakes.  Your writing will stand out with Pink, Red, Orange, Green, Blue and Purple colored pencils. For instance, the red mechanical pencil shows up a red color on the paper.  The same goes for all the other colors too.

If you're anything like me, you'll get a kick out of taking school notes, jotting signatures, composing notes, and doodling your day away with these new Paper Mate products.


Win It!

One person will win a set of Paper Mate writing utensils that includes:

I believe they came in red, blue and black only, but I had them all.
