Guys, we've got a brilliant one for you this month!
The Uniball Signo TSI is a high-performing erasable gel pen that became available in the UK this summer and is quickly replacing Uniball's previous offering, the Fanthom.
They're great pens for drawing or for using in your adult coloring books, or perfect for kids doing their homework.
Want to try them out? No problem. You'll have a chance to win a pack of 7 Signo TSIs in a range of colors including black, sky blue and violet.
This month, we're going to try something a little different. To enter, just leave a comment below telling us you're favorite kind of pen. Then we'll randomly select one winner from the entries.
(While you're here, don't forget to check out our online store and the blog for lots of nifty articles about pens and the things that people do with them. And be sure to tell your friends about Tiger Pens!)
The contest is open until Aug. 21 to residents of, well, anywhere. We'll announce the name of the winner on the blog Aug. 24.
One entry per person, please.
The only way to win is to enter, so make sure to put your name in while there's time. This is one giveaway you don't want to miss out on this summer.
The Chamelon pen is a marker pen with a unique mixing chamber in the barrel that allows you to easily create color gradations as you draw. By diluting the color at the tip and gaining color intensity as the ink flows down, you can change shades on the go, without having to change pens.
These are fairly recent to the UK and we've just started carrying them. We've been having fun playing with them and now want to give one of our readers a chance to try them out.
The prize includes colors such as aqua marine, seville orange and crimson red. It also includes a blender pen, a detail pen and a guidebook with ideas for using the pens.
To win your 22-pack of Chameleon pens, just leave a comment below between now and July 29. We'll use the random number generator at random.org to select the winner and announce the lucky name on July 31.
As always, the contest is open all around the world. But please, one entry per person.
Good luck to all. Be sure to tell your friends about the giveaway so they can enter too.
(UPDATE: This giveaway is closed. Please check the blog for the current month's giveaway.)
Earlier in the week, we promised you a giveaway, and here it is!
The prize for this drawing is a tin of 24 Stabilo Aquacolor pencils. They come in a wide range of pastel and primary hues and have 2.88 mm leads.
They're great for coloring and sketching, especially since they are water-soluble and the lines can be washed for a softer, more elegant look. Stabilo calls them "the paintable pencil," suited for use by students and amateur artists.
(If you've not tried it before, Empty Easel offers some points on blending and brushing with colored pencils. They take you step-by-step through some simple techniques for adding a little sophistication to your sketches.)
For a chance to win the 24-pack of Stabilo Aquacolors, just leave a comment at the bottom of this page. Entries close at midnight June 30.
The contest is open worldwide. One entry per person, please.
We'll randomly select one winner and announce the results on the blog July 2.

Using #IdeasNoted, Moleskine is tweeting questions about how people use their notebooks to keep track of ideas. The notebook maker also has a table set up at the conference where attendees can "write, discuss and record their answers through a mixture of handwriting, tweeting, sketchnoting, video and human contact."
