My order from Jet Pens recently arrived. As you can see, I got a little carried away with purchasing blue pens.
I like ordering from this company because of the unique Japanese products that they offer. Also, I'm always in search of the perfect pen for sketching and art journaling. Here are descriptions of some of the items that I ordered.
The pen that I most look forward to using is the Ohto Graphic Liner Needle Point Drawing Pen. It "produces the same kind of line as your typical fiber-tipped drawing pens, but with a sturdy metal needle point instead." According to the company description, "you'll never have to worry about smashing the pen tip over time, and can use every last drop of the waterproof, archival-safe pigment ink." I hope this is true because I do think I tend to press too hard on my Micron pens.
I ordered the Sakura Pigma Sensei Drawing Pen. The description says that "the ink is archival quality, smear- and feather-resistant, waterproof, chemical proof, and fade-resistant. It also does not bleed through most papers." Although the pen is promoted to manga artists, I think I will enjoy sketching with it.
I also ordered the Marvy LePen Technical Drawing Pen. It is described as having "pigmented black ink that resists bleed-through and is permanent when dry."
Because I often make detailed pencil sketches and need a slim eraser, I ordered the Seed Radarknock eraser encased in a pen-like form. It has "an unusual tip shape resembling a three-quarter moon, making erasing small areas easier than with wider erasers."
Some how, I also ordered the Tombow Mono Knock 3.8 Eraser encased in a pen-like form. "With the push of a button you can extend the Tombow Mono eraser" and it's ready to use.
The shocking pink item in the photo is the Sun-Star, Paper Stitch Lock Staple-Less Stapler. It "requires absolutely no metal staples, and will hold up to 4 sheets of paper together (average copy weight). The mechanism punches the paper and stitches it together in one press." I really got tired of messing with metal staples. Most of the hard copy that I keep are two to four pages in length so the stapler will work for me.
I have no association with Jet Pens. I just like their products. And aren't all mixed-media artists also office supply and stationery hoarders too?
