Right now all I have is a black Marvy LePlume (double sided) and though I love the way it writes, I don't expect it to get me through every page. I've looked at pens/markers at AC Moore but I have no idea where to even start. I'd like a collection so I have a wide variety of colors...But which kind is best? What is a good value? Some of those packs are upwards $60! What do you use, what do you suggest?
Not sure what to suggest for pens, I don't use them much anymore. But when I'm working on a theme like lets say Christmas I'll buy a red & a green, then if I'm doing valentines I'll get a pink and a light green, I'll just pick up a new color or 2 as needed. I do the same with stickles. But this is good if you don't want to spend the money all at once on a set.
in the product search bar type in pens and read the reviews, that might help. That's what I do when I'm researching a new product.
I like LePlume vs. Zig because I can't use zig on stamps as where I can with LePlume. Not familiar w/ other brands, sorry
I like bith the Zig pens and the LePlume pens, as well as Micron pens. I also have a large collection of Creative Memories, but in looking closely at them and my Microns I think they're basically the same pen.
I'm in love with my Zig writer's too. Once again, I mainly use them for writing and doodling on my cards. I've been picking them up on sale at one of my local chains for about $5 for a pack of 3 - they're double ended too. I also raided my fiancee's pencil case when he finished his tech drawing class - some of his fine liners were a 0.1mm tip which are awesome for doodling and drawing in fine detail! They're all in black though. I'd try and find somewhere you can try testers before you buy them.
