Review of Tul Pens from OfficeMax

Shortly before Christmas I won a set of TŪL pens from the Letters and Journals blog (thank you Jackie and OfficeMax!)

I've been playing with my pens for a while, and I like them all for writing.

They're smooth writers--no drag.  They are quick-drying, but with the exception of the marker pen, you can smear them within the first few seconds.  For their price range, these are decent pens and I won't hesitate to purchase more of them in the future.

My favorite is the marker pen.  It gives a nice bold line, and glides across the page.  

The Ballpoint forms blobs on the tip that take longer to dry and thus increases the chance of smearing.  It isn't as noticeable when writing, but very noticeable when drawing.  I also found that it jitters a bit if you write too quickly and leaves a more jagged line.

While, the Ballpoint is the weakest performer,  I was pleased with all of them.  I do prefer them for writing, and they'll be my daily purse carrys that I use for both writing and doodling while standing in line or waiting in offices.

  1. Well, the marker pen may be more traditional as far as doing tangles, but I just love the one of the tree. Just love trees :)

  2. I prefer drawing in pens than using pencil and paints. No idea why, I always have and seeing these images has made me more defiant than ever to continue using pen. TŪL pens have just been sold to me seeing the amazing images you have created.
