If there is one must-have item on my personal back-to-school list it is a few good pens!  Seriously there is nothing like starting the school year off right with a fresh notebook and an amazing new pen (or 10).  And if you’ve been hanging around here for long enough then you already know all about my obsession with pens—I love them—and one of my favorite brands is Zebra Pen!

If you don’t know what Zebra Pen is, then you should just put yourself in the corner, seriously though, they are only the coolest kids in the school yard when it comes to writing utensils!

(NBCF), The American Heart Association and The United Way of Central New Jersey (Adopt A Family). 

 

We received a few products from Zebra Pen to review for our Back-t0-School feature: Z-Grip Animals, Erase Away, and Sarasa SE.  First off I have to say that I do love Zebra Pen outside of my blog, meaning if they didn’t send me samples, chances are pretty good that I would end up talking about them anyway—cause they’re just that cool!  That said, I can’t wait to tell you more about these writing instruments!

 

Z-Grip Animals

*  Medium .7mm point size

*  Fashion forward animal print design

*  All black ink

*  Form-fitting rubber grip for comfort

*  Designer metal pocket clipimage

 

My thoughts on the Z-Grip Animals—can I actually use the word love in relation to a writing utensil?  Because I so totally LOVE these pens!  From the funky and fun animal prints to the super comfortable grip this pen has quickly become one of my favorites! 

 

Erase Away

*  Technically advanced erasable ink in a retractable design

*  Sleek designed barrel with textured rubber grip

*  Erase and rewrite without damage to the documentimage

 

My thoughts on the Erase Away—honestly, I was very pleasantly surprised by this pen.  Erasable pens are not new by any means, but erasable pens that work—that might just be a first!  I usually steer clear of erasable pens simply because in my experience they don’t work, they end up smudging and smearing the paper and looking awful, but the Erase Away pen works so well that it may have forever changed my opinion on the erasable pen…this is one you have to try!image

 

Sarasa SE

*  Superior, smooth gel ink formulation for a scratch-free flow

*  Stylish, sleek barrel body with easy ink visibility

*  Strong silver engraved metal clip for easy storage

*  Textured grip ensures control and full writing comfort

 

My thoughts on the Sarasa SE—at first I wasn’t in love with these pens, it took me a while to get used to the thin tip, but once I got going I very quickly became attached.  The gel provides flawless lines and ease of use is what this pen is all about—love it!

 

All of the Zebra Pen products above (and TONS more) are available online and wherever writing utensils are sold.
