I posted this photos recently on my Instagram and have gotten some interest for the pen I used in these photographs. I thought I would share my thoughts on this pen for those of you who are unfamiliar with it.
Morning Glory / Online Store.
The specific pens I am reviewing are the Pocket Color Pen - Twin Type. It has water soluble ink. It can also double as a highlighter. This pen needs to have its cap closed after use or it will dry out quickly. Directions state to listen carefully for the "Click" sound when you close the cap. One side of the nib is a fine line (Pen Type: 0.3-0.4mm) and other side nib is a thick line (Highlighter Type: 3.0mm).
There are eighteen (18) different colors! Colors are:
03. Cherry Pink,
04. Lovely Pink,
05. Rose Pink,
06. Peach Pink,
07. Coco Beige, *(shown in photo)
08. Gold Yellow,
10. Lime Yellow,
11. Melon Green, *(shown in photo)
12. Emerald Green, *(shown in photo)
13. Aqua Blue, *(shown in photo)
15. Ocean Blue,
16. French Blue,
18. Black *(shown in photo)
This pen also available without the thick nib : Pocket Color Pen - Single Type.
Here is my test on Filofax paper:
First was Filofax Cotton Cream paper
Next, was Filofax White paper
I also, tested them on Piaric inserts which are 28 lb or 100 (g/m²).
Overall impressions: I think these pens are great. The fine point is more like a fineliner marker than a pen. Main reasons why I wanted to try these out were because of their colors, I don't know of any other maker/pen with the colors I chose. I love that it can double as a highlighter. I have tried the Lilac, Aqua, and Coco Beige as a highlighter on Filofax Graph /Quadrille white paper and saw very minimal shadowing. I will do a separate post on highlighters soon. There are no problems fitting into pen loops.
I would definitely recommend trying these pens out.
