Feeding My JetPens Addiction

by Ann-Kat

I was down to my final Zebra Technoline ink refill which meant it was time for another JetPens order. This time (just like last time and the time before that) I think I went a little overboard. Not only did I get ink refills, I also snagged seven new pens (Zebra Sarasa Gel Ink Pen 0.4mm in blue-black, blue, and olive green; Pentel Sunburst Metallic Gel Ink Pen 0.7mm in violet, pink, and blue; and Pentel Hybrid Technica Gel Ink Pen 0.5mm in blue) and a couple packets of index tab stickers.

March 2010 JetPens Order

This time, however, is the first time I’m mildly disappointed with JetPens because one of the pens I received was used. It might seem nitpicky, but this pen was: a) a unique color (olive green) which would make finding the appropriate refill difficult; b) a gel pen which means the ink runs down relatively quickly; and c) not disclosed as being used. But I don’t plan to kick up much dirt because the pen was on sale, so I’m not out a lot of money, and I don’t care for the ink color anyway.

Jstory Index Tab Stickers

One product that I am in love with, though, is the Jstory Index Fun Sticker tabs (in bear and rabbit). The stickers are folded over the edge of the page to make a nice little tab. So far, I’m using them in my book summaries notebook to simplify access to the individual summaries.

Frankly, I’m wishing I’d bought a bunch more of them and something tells me I’ll be stockpiling these soon. (I also found some cute ones made by Jetoy on Etsy and I’ll probably get some of those, too.)

    [...] I went shopping at JetPens again. I only needed to get some pen refills, but I came away with seven new pens and some adorable index tab stickers. You can read all about it (and see pretty pictures) at Today, I Wrote… [...]

    Those stickers do look like a great idea! I got the Sarasa .4 in pink in my last JetPens order, and I really like it. I wish the ink was a bit darker, but I really like the pen itself and have already used it quite a lot! How do you like the Sunburst? That is on my list to try!

    I didn’t see the pink Sarasa! But it’s okay, I already have enough pink pens. (What am I saying?!? You can never have enough pink pens.)

    Have you ever used the Pentel RSVP pens? The Sunburst feels just that them in the hand, but the ink goes down a bit differently–sometimes thick but mostly smooth and the inks are a little difficult to read on light paper, but not invisible; I believe it would be best on dark paper.

    Also, if you’re used to writing with a thin-tipped pen or have small handwriting, you may have a problem with the medium tip–it’s definitely a stretch from 0.4mm.
