@Shoplet Review: @Sharpie Premium Pen, Neon Markers & Metallic Markers

These office supplies were sent by Shoplet for review. Thank you to Shoplet and Sharpie for this review opportunity! I was stoked when I saw the NEON and METALLIC markers! Sold.

Sharpie Premium Pen
Features
  • Offers a smooth, high-quality writing experience.
  • Delivers clean and concise lines that are permanent and smear-resistant.
Sharpie Premium Pen
The Sharpie stainless steel premium pen is aesthetically pleasing and looks far nicer than the plastic bodied Sharpie pens. I like these much better. The torpedo shaped stainless steel body is smooth and cool. The grip is rubberized for gripping, and is firm and not squishy. The entire section unscrews because it is refillable. The cap clicks pleasantly and is also postable.

I love the tip of this pen - it's not extremely fine, but it's very precise and clean writing, it drives very fast and resists smearing well. It suits "zentangling" and doodling very well. When posted, then pen has a great balance and weight to it. It's not top heavy and it's very comfortable to write with. The grip makes it very easy to control the tip, which is why it's perfect for precise doodling and writing.

It would be great if the refillable plastic section was made of recycled materials, and if the refills were available in colours other than just black. The Sharpie pens are available in beautiful colours so it would be really nice to fall in love with those as well.

I have previously reviewed this pen and had issues with the cap posting and being loose - that seems to have been fixed and is no longer an issue with these pens, therefore it has only improved in my books.

Sharpie Neon Permanent Markers - $6.02USD per set

Features

  • Brilliant, vivid color in daylight.
  • Mark fluoresces under black light.
  • Vivid ink leaves permanent mark on most surfaces.

These very awesome Sharpie neon permanent markers look like your typical Sharpies - but they are even more brilliant! The colours pop and you surely cannot mistake them for anything but neon! They have the classic fine point tips you'd be familiar with from Sharpie - they aren't ultra fine and can't really be used with for precise writing, but are perfect for drawing, doodling, decorating things, etc.

The ink flows really well on many surfaces - paper, plastic, and glass, all of which I tested myself, but also is said to flow well on wood and leather. The ink is water-, smear-, and fade-resistant so it'll last awhile on your surfaces. I also decorated my snazzy Sharpie sunglasses in zebra stripes using these neon glasses.

I wish I had a black light handy to check out the ink fluorescing! That is extra fun. You can write secret notes to your pals on black paper!

Anything I don't like? Nope. I'm crazy about them.

Features

  • Designed to provide brilliant sheen on both light and dark surfaces with the same bold, smooth no-shake performance of the Sharpie Metallic writing system.
  • Marks are permanent on most hard-to-mark surfaces with a precision fine point.
  • Alcohol-based ink formula is quick-drying, fade-resistant, water-resistant and certified AP nontoxic.

The Sharpie metallic markers are gorgeous. They look like regular Sharpies except they don't have clips - because they are supposed to be stored tip down. The ink is very brilliant in both the gold and silver, flowing effortlessly on paper, plastic, and glass. It shows up well on light and dark surfaces, although it is really outstanding on dark surfaces. The ink is water-, smear-, and fade-resistant so it'll last awhile on your surfaces.
Sharpie Metallic Markers
They smell a lot more intense than regular Sharpies as well, so be aware of that if markers that smell bother you.

Anything else I don't like? Just like the neons, nope. I'm crazy about these metallic ones too. They are gorgeous.

Full disclosure: These office supplies were sent for review by Shoplet. I was not paid to write this review, but I do get to keep these cool goodies!
