It is funny that I got chosen for this influencer. DH and I have different tastes in pens and his favorite pen drives me batty!

Ok, so I got my 10 pack of pens today, in a rainbow of colors. Now to see how they work!

After I struggled with the package to open them (I hate packaging!), I used the light green one first. I used it to do the crossword puzzle in a magazine with gloss smooth paper. My first impressions were this: the barrel is thinner than I ususually use, so I probably wouldn't be comfortable using it for a long time, but not so bad for the crossword. No issues with ink flow. Color not to my liking, but that could be that I work in a regulated environment and can only use blue and black ink, so I am use to a strong color. I used it on an envelope to see what the comparison to the glossy paper would be and I liked it better then.

I have a grocery list to make now, so I will try it out on that and report back. Stay tuned!

Same here....I have arthritis too. (psoriatic)

Quoting kerryket:

I avoid writing, I have arthritis in my hand and on top of that have always had a death grip on pens.  I'm glad that I was picked, thanks PaperMate and Cafemom!  I'm looking forward to giving the pens a try and posting about it.

 Thank you cafemom and PaperMate for the opportunity to try these new pens.  I look forward to trying them.  Just about every morning I start my day with writing a list of things that need to get done.   I hope that the pens write nice and smooth.  Some I feel you have to write too hard and the ink globs up. 

my pens arrived a couple days ago and after using them several times I'm really happy with the quality.   They write nice and smooth.   The package said they are medium point but I think they are more fine point which is great for me.  I like the fine point.

I recieved my paper mate ink joy pens today!

I love that there are so many color options. I am one of those types who gets bored with just black and blue

I tried them out writing my shopping list. Purple, black and brown seems to write the most smoothly. I am not a huge fan of the light green it is a bit bright and hard for me to read on notebook paper but i also dont have the best eye sight. They do not smudge at all which i love because normally when my son uses pens they end up all over his hands. The only thing that really dont like is they do not have padded finger grips. I have a feeling that with extended use i may get a hand cramp due to the thinness of the pen. But overall if you like having multicolored options with a pen that writes smoothly you will love these. I would recommend them :)....TY cafemom and papermate!
