Shoplet Review: Zebra Pens #shopletreviews

2012-05-30 16.05.06
I LOVE office supplies, always have. When I was a kid- I’d spend my entire allowance on paper, binders, pens, highlighters, and the such. Even as I got older- I would ask for tons of office supplies for Christmas, I know weird huh? I can’t help it.

I’ve always been a writer at heart. I would take binders, fill them with loose leaf paper and copy what I wanted to learn out of textbooks. It has helped me learn, but it also taught me that I’m a nerd.. lol.
When I got the chance to review some very awesome Zebra pens from Shoplet, you wouldn’t believe how stoked I was! Okay- maybe you do! =)

Zebra Z-Mulsion EX Ballpoint pens are amazing! This has a modern feel to it because it has a very durable plastic barrel and a rubber grip. The rubber grip on this pen makes for the MOST amazing writing, because it has added ridges for a better grip!

They are made with a revolutionary blend of water, oil, and ink pigment that never EVER skips, bubbles, or dries out! The barrel is much wider than any other ballpoint pen AND has a retractable point. A good reliable pen that you’ll want to keep on you at all times.!

I love how it just glides across the paper like an ice skater performing at their best. I fell in love with this pen at first stroke. It had me at hello. The ink flow of this pen is VERY above level!
It wrote on everything I came in contact with for 5 minutes. No matter what it was- cardboard, paper, and construction paper. This is a VERY high quality pen for $19.50

I am SO going to add all the other 5 colors to my collection. I got the blue one- but there is also black, red, green, light blue, pink, violet, and orange. Ooh I can’t wait!

Zebra F-301 Retractable Ballpoint Pen
This is such a comfortable, affordable, and yet high quality pens. These kind of pens bring back the days of my dad. He was a truck driver and did ALL his paperwork with these metal type pens!

I’d see him scrolling away writing down his miles, money averages, and the loads that were hauled to and from and ask him to write as well. I’m not sure if they were Zebra pens to be exact- because I was only 7 when he died from a motorcycle accident- BUT this makes me feel reminiscent and full of great memories every time I pick one up! It has a smooth stainless steel barrel with a rubber grip located near the tip for a better grip.

The best thing about this pen is the very fine point. Even though it HAS a fine point, it doesn’t scratch the paper like most fine points. And it has a thicker marking line then most fine point pens.
This is great for me when I’m editing my work. I can just write very small at the top where something needs to be fixed, something needs to be added, or deleted.

Because of the stainless steel look, they look so amazingly professional.  They are very comfortable to hold, and are very durable. Even when accidentally put through the wash, it didn’t act like it had been.


They sent a little mascot along with the very awesome pen holding binder.. but Miss Adisyn Eve has declared Ms. Zebra all her own. The package came when Aidan was in school- so she stole it right from the start.
