Write Faster with a Gel Pen
A custom gel pen uses ink in which pigment is suspended in a water-based gel. Because the ink is thick and opaque, it shows up more clearly on dark or slick surfaces than the typical inks used in ballpoint or felt tip pens. Gel pens can be used for many types of writing and illustration. Gel pens are the reliable worker bees of classrooms, homes, and businesses everywhere. People use them for everything from taking notes to signing documents. Gel pens are relatively low maintenance. Gel pens are used to write faster because, The ink is a water-based gel that is not quite as thick as typical ballpoint paste. The idea of gel ink is to achieve a balance so that it dries quickly and is less likely to blot or smudge, but still flows freely enough to write more smoothly than a standard ballpoint. Because gels use pigments, rather than dyes, and this makes writing fast. Compared to standard ballpoint pens, gel pens make a bolder line, and can write on smooth, non-absorbent materials. Compared to fountain pens, gel pens are less likely to bleed through the paper on which they write, lines that they write are finer that those that a fountain pen writes, and gel pen can write on dark surfaces and smooth materials.
