Right here’s the deal. These pens are barely one greenback every. Yeah, that’s proper. My new favourite pen is an inexpensive one and it’s additionally the smoothest, most smudge-free, fantastically clear writing gel pen I’ve ever used. It dries nearly as quickly because the ink leaves the pen. In the event you give it even a few seconds, you’ll be able to’t smear it.
