Why My Son Loved Getting One of the Best Gel Pens at Graduation

Parker Jotter Gel Pen Kensington Red

“Today’s a big day, Roy! Are you ready?” I said to my son as he grabbed the cup of coffee from my hand.

He smiled and replied, “Yes, Mom.”

He looked sharp. Of course, he did, it was his graduation day.

He was among the top students in his Graphic Design class, and as a mom, I couldn’t be more proud of him.

After the ceremony, I pulled him aside and offered him a well-wrapped gift. He opened it with lots of curiosity. Then he looked up at me with an enormous smile.

“A Cross Gel Pen?!” He screamed.

“Yes!” I exclaimed.

He tightly hugged me and amid emotions whispered to me.

“Thanks, Mom. You really are the best!”

A week after graduation, my son sat me down and narrated to me why he loved the Red Gel Cross Edge Pen.

Fast-Drying Ink

If you’re looking to have a flawless and clean finish without smudges, then the Red Cross Edge Gel Pen is one of the best tools for you.

Whether you’re a writer or an artist who loves to sketch and draw, these gel pens allow you to produce precise results regardless of the project nature.

They’re considered being the best gel pens for left-handed people. That’s because they have quick-drying ink.

Gel pens without this feature are cumbersome for left-handed people because their hand sweeps over what has just been written and smudges the ink.

Variety of Colors and Ink Options

Gel pens are available in a myriad of exciting colors that work best with the many writing surfaces.

Most artists and graphic designers find the colors of these gel pens appealing. They provide a vibrancy that works best on art projects.

The ink found in gel pens is made up primarily of copper phthalocyanine and iron oxides.

You’ll also find biopolymers such as (xantham gum and tragacanth gum) and polyacrylate thickeners.

Oops! We must have lost you in there. But no need to worry.

All you need to understand is that these elements work together to give gel pens the best features that they boast of. Especially with color variety, smooth writing, and quick-drying ink.

The pigments mixed are of bright pastel colors. However, sometimes metallic and glittery shades are created to be used on darker surfaces.

In other words: different types of dyes are incorporated to create high-quality ink.

  • • The gel pens can easily craft a bolder line when compared to other types of pens.
  • • You can use the ink gel pen on non-absorbent and smooth surfaces.
  • • The gel ink doesn’t bleed through papers.
  • • When compared to a paint marker, a gel pen is easier to use and handle.
  • • No powerful odor.

Understanding The Difference

You might wonder what is the difference between rollerballs, ballpoints, and ink gel pens. Well, the fundamental difference is the ink used.

  • • The ballpoint pens use thick, oil-based ink, which is water-resistant. Therefore, the ink pens write smoothly with no smudges.
  • • Conversely, the rollerball pens use thin water-based ink. It writes with less pressure, though it easily smudges and bleeds.
  • • The gel pens incorporate the best features of rollerballs and ballpoints.

The gel ink is a mixture of oil and water-based ink. This reduces the likelihood of smudging while still offering smooth writing.

Subsequently, gel pens provide the performance of ballpoints with the comfort of rollerballs.

The gel pens with a 0.5 mm tip size are quite popular as they are considered universally comfortable. Others feature a contoured rubber grip for a better writing experience.
