Pentel Pens

Enjoy a smooth writing experience when you pick from the wide selection of Pentel pens available on Staples. Like most popular pen brands, Pentel offers different types of these writing implements. These pens come in multiple sizes and styles and have tips made from premium materials. These ink-based writing instruments are durable and deliver consistent results.

Keep Multiple Pentel Pens for Different Writing Needs
The first step to choosing the right pen is determining why you need one. For example, a ballpoint pen is ideal for everyday writing. It is practical and has a simple design with a hard tiny sphere at its tip. This pen uses an oil-based ink that dries quickly and is unlikely to smudge. A fountain pen has a more stylish design and a classic appeal. It is both decorative and functional. It uses a water-based ink that flows smoothly and takes very little pressure to apply to paper. You should use it occasionally to write invitations and sign formal documents or for calligraphy. A rollerball pen uses a water-based liquid or gel ink. It combines the simplicity of ballpoint pens with the smooth ink flow of a fountain pen. Of course, all of these pens are perfect additions to any back to school supplies list.

Key Factors to Consider When Selecting Pentel Pens
The weight or heft of a pen becomes important after writing for an extended period. Choose office supplies that includes a lightweight pen over a heavier one if you regularly take notes by hand. To avoid hand fatigue, make sure it has a plastic or resin body and a soft, non-slip grip. You may get a metal or wood pen if you want a premium-looking writing instrument to display on your desk and use occasionally. Size is also important. The length and width of a pen affect how you hold it and where you keep it. Pick a short unit as a pocket pen and only consider a very long barrel if you want a novelty pen.

The width of a pen's ballpoint, rollerball or tip determines the fineness of the lines it writes. Go for a model with a fine point if you want to draw with it or practice delicate calligraphy. Fine and extra-fine tips are also ideal for those with small handwriting. Medium tips suit most people and many writing needs while broad points are for those with large handwriting.

What Is the Best Material for a Pental Pen?
Nibs are usually made of stainless steel. This is a sturdy material with a silvery finish. Stainless steel nibs are practical and easy to replace. Premium fountain pens have nibs plated with iridium or gold. Iridium reinforces steel nibs and makes them more durable. Gold is an aesthetic choice found on luxury models.

What Are the Different Types of Ballpoint Pens?
They are two major types of these writing supplies: refillable and disposable models. Disposable units have simpler designs while refillable models use replaceable ink reservoirs and may also have exchangeable ballpoints. A ballpoint pen may have a cap to protect its tip or a retractable tip that extends through a spring-loaded or screw mechanism.

What Are the Differences Between Liquid and Gel Inks?
Gel pens use pigments and are available in more colors. Liquid inks use dyestuffs and flow out more smoothly. The high viscosity of gel ink makes it an excellent medium for heavy pigments like the ones that produce metallic, glittery and opaque effects.
