These pens are alright they are a little expensive, and personally I've noticed they don't last very long for some reason that's compared to the b i c cheap ones. I do like that they come in a variety of colors other than just the basic black blue and red, you can find them at any store as well.

As a server, I'm always looking for a good pen. This is it! These pens write so well, even on the thermal paper of the receipts. I also love the fun colors! These are very affordable, which is awesome becuase in the serving industry everyone takes each other's pens! I don't buy anything else!

I do think these are good pens. They have vivid color and dry instantly without smearing. The ink lasts quite awhile and the colors are nice for organizing notes. I still prefer G2 pens over these because of the vividness of the ink. Still recommend these pens!

The smoothest pen I have found on the market. Love the extra grip that makes for comfortable writing without being chunky like most pen/pencil grips. I use the various colors in my planner to attribute activities to specific categories. LOVE!

I love writing with these pens it glides so easily on paper these are good to use for your own personal use but not to use if your writing business letter or signing important documents I would definately recommend these.

It's a new year and I'm following the "New Year, New You" trend (once again). What better way to stay on track than with a bright and organized calendar? This pen pack has a great basic color variety and the colors are vibrant! What knocked some stars off were that the pens don't write smoothly. They have those ink gaps that force you to write your line 2-3 times for it to be solid. So visually, from far away I love it, up close--not so much. But they get the job done.

If you're looking for a smooth and comfortable writing experience, Paper Mate® Profile Ballpoint Retractable Pens are the pens for you! I've never loved any other line of pens the way I do these. They are my personal favorite and I would never purchase another. The grip makes them super comfortable to use and the ink just flows into the paper. You can feel the difference. Great quality for an exceptional price. 10 stars!!

I personally love to color coat things when writing directions or just being decorative when leaving a note. These come in handy! Very affordable and last FOREVER. They never seem to dry out. I still have some from 4years ago that are still working great!
