Advantages: Works perfectly
Out of all the felt tips I have bought over the years these are the best. Most I have previously bought have dried out, lost lids, broke nibs and usually last for a month or two.
These pens have a fine tip which is good for writing. The ink flows quickly and easily and dries in an instant. These are best used on paper or card as I have found they don't work so well on shinier surfaces like plastic as it stays wet, this also has happened when I tried them on funky foam.
The pack contains 12 pens, the colours are black, red, light blue, dark blue, light green, dark green, purple, pink, yellow, orange, brown and grey. These colours are bright and usually the colour I want is there although I would have liked a lilac and dark pink.
The pens come in a thick plastic packaging which can be reused so your pens will always stay in a safe place.
These pens are washable and this is completely true. Occasionally I have dropped one and it has landed tip down on clothes. After a wash you would never know it happened. They also come off skin easily with a bit of soap and water.
The packet says that the pens can have the lid off for 14 days and still work. I don't want to risk finding out though, i'll have to trust them.
The lids on these pens always stay on and I have never lost one. You know the lid is on as you here a click and they never become loose.
These can also be bought with thicker tips which I also have and are good for colouring.
I bought these from a local craft shop but you can get them at most stationers as well. They are priced at £4 on amazon which is a bargain. I have had them a few years now and they still work as good as new. Definitely got my moneys worth. I wouldn't choose another brand now I've had berol.
