Nowadays with the proliferation of computers, smart phones, tablets, and more you would think that people wouldn’t be using the old pen, pencil, and paper much. Well I can tell you for me there is nothing like the good old standard pen and paper for everyday use. My work, which is heavily involved with technology just, seems to go well with a pen and notepad next to my laptop. As a matter of fact there are post-it notes all around my office center with reminders of things that need to be done or with inspirational quotes and sayings.
Actually one of the reminder post-its that I am looking at right now says, “Get Office Supplies”. How fitting a post-it note that reminds me to get office supplies. I always seem to be running out of printer-ink, printer paper, post-it notes, envelops, folders, and pens. I usually would shop at one of those office supply stores but lately in looking for an alternative I came across an online retailer called Shoplet.com. They have everything that the other retailers carry with great prices too match.
One particular item that I am pretty picky about is pens. I have experimented with all types of pens. I like pens that write smoothly and are easy to hold in my hand. I prefer medium point pens to fine point and pens that provide a nice writing grip. When Shoplet.com sent me a bunch of complimentary pens I couldn’t wait to give them a try. You see one of my favorite pens recently ran out of ink and I have been using these cheap pens that are just driving me nuts. I know your probably saying, “Hey, why don’t you just replace your favorite pen?” Well that is easier said than done. You see my favorite pen was a promotional pen given to me as a gift. It has no brand name on it so there is no way to replace it.
So this gift from Shoplet.com came at the perfect time. They sent me a bunch of PentelEnerGel X Roller Pens and Pencils in various point sizes and colors. As soon as I picked up the first Pentel Ener Gel X pen it was easy to see that this was the pen for me. First of all it just felt right in my hand. The weight and the feel were perfect, not to mention the soft rubber padded grip. Which I found out is latex-free for those of you with allergies. After holding the pen in my fingers for a bit I started to write with it. The first pen I picked up had a 0.7 mm point size, which was a little bit too fine for me. It would be okay for signing documents, doing crosswords, and sudoku. But it was a little too fine for note taking and journal writing. The next pen I picked up had a 1.0mm point size and it was just right. Hey is this starting to sound a bit like Goldie Locks? As I said this size point was just perfect for my writing style. The ink just flowed out of the pen effortlessly.
After a while I had the opportunity to try all of the pens and pencils that were sent to me. I have to say that the PentelEnerGel X Roller Pens and Pencils are an excellent line of writing utensils. If you’re looking for a great place to buy them check out Shoplet.com for great deals and specials on all of your office supply needs.
