Gel Pens for Artwork
I am a Zentangler and needed these gel pens to add color to my Zentangles. I found the color selection to be quite adequate for my needs. I received my pens in excellent time and condition. However, I do need to express that if anyone uses these for drawing they need to allow each color to dry before adding another color and be careful not to touch the color before it has time to dry. Otherwise, I am very pleased with these gel pens.

not the Knight in shining armor....
I did a lot of research on gel pens before selecting these. the price, product guarantee and reviews all helped me make the choice. Upon opening the pens, the ink was smooth and flowed well, but almost all of the pens were only half full and appeared to have been used already. maybe that is the way they are made, shipped, I dunno...but for the price, I want more ink...sorry. In addition, I felt the color selection to be repetitive. Maybe it's the artist in me, but i am super picky with writing tools. If you have money to burn, burn it on some Sakura gelly roll pens...or prismacolor artist markers. that's what I did. Oh, and 2DayDeliver rocks. they sent ups back out with a call tag THE NEXT DAY and refunded my money the day after that. Impressed? you betcha.

I like these pens. I would have given them 5 stars except some of the pens are not properly filled with ink. The pens write smoothly.

Better than good but not me favorite
These pens are somewhere between good and ok. Unlike another set I have, you have to watch the lid to make sure the click on well. Also, when they get low on ink, they sometimes skip or run out though they still have visible ink in them. Scratching the on another piece if paper may get them started again. The colors as good and seem to match well with my other set.
Will probable not reorder them, because the 72 set works so much better and draws until there really is nothing left in the pen and the lids to stick better.

I DO NOT RECOMMEND THESE!!! I received a replacement set that was WORSE than the original set I purchased.
Problem with tip/ball bearing...two pens DID NOT WORK RIGHT OUT OF THE BOX AND 3 others, were/are still very temperamental!! One has lots of ink, but large air space above it (yellow) & won't allow access to ink!😡 Several other of the pens stop writing off and on, no matter what angel, paper used😡VERY FRUSTRATING. A few of the pens flow a bit heavy, although tip sizes are all the same. I WON'T be purchasing theses again. I DO NOT RECOMMEND THESE! I do a little LOT of coloring.

Bright Knight Gel Pens
I just received my replacement pens, and everything is perfect with them, I absolutely love the way they color and they're perfect for the adult colcrlng books! When I got my pens one of them had leaked into the pen holder and was empty, I sent the company a message and let them know what had happened, I wasn't expecting them to send me another complete set, but that is exactly what they did, they sent a new set immediately! They were prompt, professional and I will definitely be ordering from them again, the pens are great! Thank you!

These are terrific pens. I thought initially how or why would I ever use 36 different pens. I figured that one out the first day. It's amazing how many uses you will find for them. Anyone who is the least bit creative will completely enjoy them.

I am, and am not sold on these pens - 50/50
Yes there are a lot of colors, and they seem to be waterproof as advertised. Waterproof, archival, and long lasting is what I'm most concerned with, so I hope the claims made are true!!!! They write ok, but are not all that comfortable to hold. Many of the pens had different quantities of ink in them - some were 3/4 full and some were less than half!!! I am wondering whether I got a pack that someone returned, or if they are just inconsistently filled. For that amount of money I would like to see the barrels filled with more ink (like other pens).
The "case" that they come in is flimsier than a grocery store shell that salad greens come in though, so be prepared to find another place to store them other than the case.
I am still thinking, but leaning toward returning them.

Middling amongst pens......
Shipping on these went fine, I received them well before the deadline, in good condition. Can't say the pens do very well, though. They skip when I write or color with them. The ones that don't skip work nicely, and I like the color-range. The tops of some pens are very hard to remove, and the "clip" part of the top pops off with the first serious twist of the top. I will use the pens I have, but probably will not reorder them. I have been checking out a lot of markers and pens recently, and the colors of ink that are attainable seem pretty universal. The method of delivery of the colors is what makes me like or dislike a pen. So far, I am enjoying the Bic Markers because their range of colors is slightly different from the range of the other manufacturers, and I have long enjoyed Gelly Rolls for the best, smooth delivery to the paper (--although they are not PERFECT, either, they come closest, for me).

Disappointed but situation was rectified
My wife has received these pens before and were a decent quality, she liked the colors. She said they went on smooth and had vibrant colors. Unfortunately, the last shipment of pens were exploded in the package and were horrible mess. Very difficult clean up, the gel ink really makes a mess. Not not sure what caused the explosion but the seller was quick to contact and rectified the situation.
