Medium and Fine Point TRU RED Ballpoint Pens to Meet Any Need
Medium points, the most versatile and commonly used option, provide a 1.0 mm tip that is ideal for small and large text alike. They offer a seamless writing experience with less skipping, making them perfect for capturing notes in classes, workshops, or meetings. They release less ink than bold point pens, minimizing ink bleed and smudges. The result is a higher contrast and better visibility than fine point pens. Fine point pens include a smaller tip of 0.7 mm ideal for sketching accents in illustrations, writing small text, or for marking detailed symbols and characters.

Write on a Variety of Mediums With TRU RED Ballpoint Pens
Ballpoint inks contain dyes suspended in alcohols and fatty acids that lubricate the pen tip. This promotes a seamless flow of the ink to the page. The ink is quick drying, water resistant, and due to the greater ink thickness, lasts longer than other types of inks. The ballpoint pens work well on a wide range of paper types and weights. Use them on lined paper and printer paper, stock paper, sticky notes, planners, and journals. Try them for cards and envelopes to send messages to friends and family, or when signing legal documents. Get great results on sketch paper when creating drawings and other artwork. Change the thickness of the lines by applying the pen on paper pressure to release more ink, creating bolder results. Use a lighter touch to release less ink and create thinner lines. 

What Features Should You Consider With TRU RED Ballpoint Pens?
Look for low viscosity inks to ensure an even smoother writing experience than standard inks. Choose capped options to keep the pen tip protected and prevent the ink from drying up. Look for rubberized grips for a soft grip, and lightweight, flexible barrels for optimal control. Pocket clips attach to clothing, books, and bags for easy transport anywhere.

What Packages Are Available for TRU RED Ballpoint Pens?
Keep the home office and school supply cabinet stocked with packages of 12, or opt for a larger set of 60 for classrooms, offices, workshops, and meetings.

What Colors Are Available for TRU RED Ballpoint Pens?
Choose from black, blue, and red pens. Stark black ink offers maximum contrast on white and colored paper and sticky notes. Bold blue ink provides a softer look, while still being high contrast on a wide variety of mediums, from thin lined paper to heavy stock paper. Blue ink pens are perfect for marking up documents printed in black and white. To make edits and feedback more noticeable, select vibrant red inks that ensure notes aren’t overlooked. Barrel colors reflect ink color for easy identification.
