  • The Best Fountain Pens Under £20 in 2018

    Best fountain pens under £20

    In this post I'm going to test some of the most popular fountain pens under £20. Each pen has a short review with how I found it to write with and a score out of 10, taking into account my opinion along with the cost, availability of nibs, inks, and all that good stuff you want to know. The score is my opinion of the pens and, of course, others will find them different, but this is what I think. I have included a sample of all of the pens reviewed at the end of the post to help you compare.

  • The Best Pens For Left-Handed People in 2018

    Lefties, we know you have it rough when it comes to finding good pens, since most of them are designed to be used by right-handers.

    A typical right-handed person using a pen pulls it toward the right in a smooth motion, leaving a line of fresh ink untouched behind the writing hand.

    A left-handed person has to push the pen from left to right. That requires the writer to press harder on the pen, which can be uncomfortable and can force the paper to foul the writing tip. Meanwhile, the writing hand drags over the ink and smudges it.

    Obviously, then, the two most important qualities in a pen for left-handed people is that the ink dries quickly and that it flows as smoothly as possible. With that in mind, here are some of our favourite pens for left-handers to consider.

  • Painting Stones with Artline OHP Markers

    We received an enchanting letter from a customer who was representing a small group of people in New Zealand, who have been using permanent marker pens to write on painted stones. In their letter they explained that they had tried over 30 different permanent pens before finding the perfect one.

    Many of the rejected pens blurred when the writing was applied while the others the writing faded over time. The one product that doesn’t exhibit these liabilities is the Artline Permanent OHP Pen.
