Have you seen the commercial where 9 people or so, are coloring one one space, and no one gets any smears on them, nor does the page smear?


The product is Paper Mate InkJoy gel pens, and you probably heard the scream from my house when the kid opened the package and saw we had a pack of them to check out!

We received the 14 pen pack, and as you can see, it is a rainbow of colors!

Almost as impressive as the pens themselves, is their packaging! Look at that EASY open pack! WOOT! 

WIth all the things we have to get ready for Back to School, having an easy open pack makes any parent extremely happy!

Sorta look like 'big kid' crayons, don't they?

Which means they are PERFECT for Back to School crafting and fun for your pre-teens and teens! 

These new gel pens have a vivid gel ink that dries 3x faster for reduced smearing, but they get your point across with their amazing colors:

Miss Grace started her picture from the outside in on her drawing, so she could test for smearing, while making her bouquet!

She was pretty impressed with the lack of smearing and no color on her hand. So when she got to the center rose, she purposely tried to smear the colors (she is thorough with her product testing, LOL), and as you can see, there was BARELY any smear, and that was right when she applied both colors and pressed VERY hard on the paper to make it smear. Which means, for your normal usage, there would be NO smear!

I had the same results with my sample.

I went a different route and went for a color rich drawing, that would really allow me to pick up any color on my fingers, as I crossed over the larger field of color for fine line definition. 

And?
No smears, no transfer onto my hand!

Woo hoo!
