Gel pens are quality writing instruments whose ink is vivid, smooth, and fade-resistant. Use gel ink pens to draw, color, and write in a variety of colors that last long without fading. Gel ink pens come in various colors, designs, and point sizes to suit different uses. Staples carries a wide selection of gel pens in a variety of packages. Browse the wide range of writing supplies and instruments in the office supplies section.

Consider design and features
Gel pens contain water-based gel combined with different colored pigments to form the gel ink. The ink flows freely, providing the user with increased ease while writing. The gel characteristic of the ink allows the pen to glide smoothly across different types of paper, whether thick or thin, requiring little to no pressure. This helps reduce strain on the wrist and allows ease in writing without imprinting on the next page. Some designs come with a retractable feature, which allows the user to expose and retract the pen point with just a click. This feature protects the ink from drying out and does not require a cap for protection. However, some designs come with a cap if preferred by the user. 

Consider point size
Gel pens come in a variety of point sizes. These range from bold to ultra-fine to create the desired thickness of lines for various intended purposes. The smallest pen tips are 0.3mm, and are best suited for detailed lines and ideal for line artists, while bold tips are best for shading and coloring. The tip and barrel are sturdy enough to withstand different levels of pressure without breaking. Other point sizes include 0.5mm, 0.7mm, and 1mm, which is the thickest point size. 

Consider various packages
Gel ink pens come in a variety of packages with some sets carrying as many as 12, 24, or even 120 pens. The various sets carry different classifications of colors to suit each user. The multiple colors include neons, pastels, and metallic colors of different pigments. Some packages carry as few as three gel pens of the same point size and similar color, ideal in homes, offices, and schools for regular writing. Also, there are sets for professionals that contain conventional colors such as blue and black. 

Are they slippery to hold?
Unlike regular pens that come with simple plastic barrels that can become slippery, gel pens often come with rubber comfort grips. This feature enhances the users' grip even in instances of sweating. Additionally, these rubber grips come in a variety of colors and designs, making the gel pens more aesthetically pleasing.

Are there additional features?
Some designs come with erasable ink, which provides an added advantage similar to using a pencil. The fast-drying nature of the ink helps reduce messes such as blotting, smearing, or smudging. Some designs come with a refillable feature, which makes them environmentally friendly.

Is gel ink safe for the skin?
Gel ink is thick and opaque. This makes it clear and legible on various types of paper. In addition, it is acid-free and safe for the skin, making it safe for use for users of all ages.
