Comments / Recommendations

  • A good pack of gel pens with a great color and ink range
  • While not the cheapest set of gel inks these are good value for money and are an excellent set of starter gel pens. I love my set, in fact I bought two sets of these pens and I use them often.
  • These pens do not require any pressure to get the best out of them so if you have any fine motor, hand or arm problems these may be a suitable option
