Rollerball Pens

SORT BY:
The rollerball pen is a versatile writing implement that has the feel of a ballpoint pen but releases ink easily onto paper like a fountain pen. The pen has a ballpoint that rolls, transferring ink smoothly from its reservoir. Rollerball pens also use water-based ink, not a thick oil-based ink like a ballpoint does, which makes writing with rollerballs much easier on the hand.

The Rollerball Pen Comes in a Rainbow of Colors
Because rollerballs use liquid inks or sometimes gels, they offer more than just standard black and blue colors, since manufacturers have many more pigments and dyes for liquid ink at their disposal. Some pens come in other standard colors, such as red and green, but you can also get purple, pink, orange and yellow, plus shades like evergreen or scarlet. This range of colors not only appeals to personal tastes, but is also important for highlighting subject-specific notes for class or business meetings and for preparing color-coded graphs and charts for presentation.

The Rollerball Pen Has Different Ball Tips for Different Needs
Rollerball pens write fluidly because the water-based ink is thinner and also tends to soak into the paper rather than remaining on top. This means that rollerball ink lines are finer, so the pens are ideal for pen and ink sketching. Pen tips for rollerballs also come in extra fine and fine tips for even more detailed pen work, plus in medium to bold sizes for more expressive writing, such as for reminder notes, chart titling and labeling and pronto memos.

What Kind of Cartridges Are Available for the Rollerball Pen?
Since rollerballs are similar to fountain pens, they are considered a high-quality writing implement and, as such, are available in high-end designs, including gold, silver and chrome plating plus lacquered finishes in a range of colors. Still, because rollerballs can be a workhorse in the classroom or office, they also come with durable polymer barrels, some of which are transparent so you can see how much ink you have left in the cartridge. Some rollerball pens also have refillable cartridges, and you can get rollerballs with a click or twist-retractable tip or a handy snap-on cap.

What's the Advantage of Using a Rollerball Pen?
If you're a prolific note taker, whether for class, business or personal reasons, the rolling tip and thin ink of fountain pens put a lot less stress on your hand than other pen types. This may be particularly important in classrooms or seminars if your teacher, professor or speaker is a fast talker and you can't afford to lift your hand and shake it to get the blood flowing back to it. Many rollerballs also come with rubberized grips to make writing even easier on your hand.

How Much Smudging Should You Expect in a Rollerball Pen?
New gel pens have water-based ink that is quick drying, water-resistant and archival safe. Some even have specially formulated ink that becomes permanently embedded in paper and can't be altered, so it's ideal for signing checks and official documents.
