OMG by far the best 3d puffy pens ever!!! I purchased these about three months ago, and I canít get enough of them! Once you try them you will not want to put them down. They are perfect for journaling or doodling. I use these on almost ever layout or project I create. The quality is FABULOUS, the pens write very smooth, dries fast, and the best part is that it adds dimension to your work! It is definitely worth the price you pay, plus you get so many colors in a pack! The only negative thing is that the colors dry lighter than what Iíd expect and the black turns out like a grey, wish it was an actual black.

Once I`d tried and fallen in love with the glaze pens from Sakura, I had to try these as well, and just like the glaze set, these have become one of the best scrapbooking investments I`ve made - I use them constantly, they`re beautiful and versatile and work incredibly well with the glaze set to create different effects. These are opaque and dry lighter than the color you get from initial writing. Like the glaze pens, these smudge easily and have to be allowed to dry completely before you do anything else with the page or slide it into a protector.
I owned a white Souffle pen and used it until the ink was gone. I recently bought this 10 pack because I've been searching for pens that write well on dark colors because I like to doodle on my pages. I love how the Souffle looks after it's dried. The colors are bright and clear. I'm totally in love with my new pack of pens!

This is actually my 2nd set of these pens; I used the last set ALL up. These are great for so many things...I have used them to write on acrylic albums, black (or dark papers), doodle on LOs and photos, decorate plastic items (ie cell phones). I could go on and on, you NEED these pens.

I love to use these pens on my LOs! Anytime I have to write or doodle something, I pull out these pens. I almost always use them to do my journaling. And there are so many colors that they can match just about every LO. The texture the pens add is also great, but isn't super puffy.

I would have loved these pens anyway, but when I discovered how well they worked on acryllic albums I was hooked!!! They go on so smothly, almost a tiny bit runny, but they dry pretty quick. I also love the vibrant colors!
I was actually looking for a white pen to write on dark paper, and I bought these. Well I love all of them!! They write smoothly and have a great texture. These are my go-to pens for any journaling or doodling.
I love it!!!! it may not be as puffy as you'd expect it to be... but you can always add another layer.... hehe the colors are a bit weird if you use it on a light paper so use it for dark paper... :)

Absolutely love these pens. So different than the gel pens. Love the look it creates after it dries, so creamy looking, definately makes you want to touch it and see what it is. LOVE THESE PENS!!!!!

I am so glad Iheartaslan recommended these pens. They have great colors and write smoothly. Also doesn't bleed or come out uneven in any way. I had other gel pens but these are by far my favorite.
These pens are so much fun to write with. They can add texture to any page! I am on my second set of them, once you start using them you aren't going to be able to stop!

So I bought these pens on a buying spree, with no real idea of what in the heck I'd do with them. Then a neighbor on this site told me about using them to write on photos! They work so well, not only on photos, but also on other slick surfaces. The inks go on light and dry much darker, although they are still a pastel color. I hope Sakura comes out with darker colors, too because I would definitely buy them! The ink comes out very smoothly. It's a bit thick, so these are not the best pens for super-fine work. I love them for outlining things, doodling, and as I said, writing on photos. I try to write a little larger than my normal handwriting so the ink on the tighter areas of the letters does not run together. Then I just make sure to set the item to the side to let the ink dry. The ink dries very quickly, in just a few moments, even on slick surfaces. You can tell when it's dry, too, which is a definite positive for an impatient scrapper like me. As for the puffy aspect, I really don't think they get all that puffy but I didn't really expect them to since it's not paint.

The Souffle pens by Sakura are a great tool to add texture and dimension to any craft. When using the pen, it takes a couple of minutes for the ink to dry. Afterwards, the ink leaves a noticeable embossed path. The inks work best on slick surfaces, such as photos, or on dark cardstocks. The pens are great to outline stamping, to doodle, to accent chipboard pieces, write dates on photos. The only limitation of these pens are the pastel colors are not versatile.
I love these pens and use them regularly when I want to add a little puff to the layout. I use the white one all the time to create faux stitching since I have no idea how to really sew. The only drawbacks are that you must write slowly to make sure you get good coverage and you have to wait a few moments for it to dry and actually puff. I sometimes find that I need to touch up with the pen to get uniform coverage. Overall, highly recommended.

I love the effect I can get with these pens. They're great for making dots and doodles too, just all around fun! They do take a longer time to dry than most pens, and they are watery looking and not opaque before they dry. So you might use them and think, yuck, these pens don't even work, but then you come back 10 mins later and it looks totally awesome! They look great on really dark cardstock, and the colors are all really nice.

These pens are great for writing and doodling, especially on dark paper. The white pen is my favorite, being the brightest of them all and has become "the" white pen for me. All of the rest of colors work great on dark paper as well, though they become a little less useful on brighter papers. The only disapointment for me with this set is the black, which seems to come out as more of a brown color.

These are great for any kind of surface, even non porous!
I love the colors, but sometimes the tips gunk up and get annoying but otherwise this is a must have for any journaling fool!

It took me a little time to adjust to how fast or slow to write to get the perfect flow of ink going, but now I love them!!! The colors go well with the cards I make. Great buy!

Great to use on cards for dimension. But place in envelope carefully for it can rub off a little. If you make envelopes, make one, one size larger than card. Very good product.
I was really disappointed by the pretty flat results I got from the pen. I thought it would really pop up but that didn't happen. It absorbed into the paper and chipboard so I tried it on acrylic and it just didn't pop in 3 d as I was expecting. It also takes awhile to dry--I had to go over the same dot over and over each time waiting for it to dry. I'm disappointed in Sakura this time. I like their other products.
i like the colors and it does write on dark just as well on light papers, but i see no puff poof or any lift. maybe im using them wrong but i see no demention seems like a regular gel pen to me. i rate it a two cause it doesnt do what it says it will like i said just like a gel pen just wetter.
These pens give brilliant coverage, solid and opaque. (Do not confuse them with Glaze pens, however, which are trasparent, but also slick surfaced and excellent as well.) These work on a large number of surfaces including plastic transparancies.
One of my favorite techniques: Stamp the clear plastic with a permanent ink, such as Staz-on, then color the "wrong" side of the picture. When done, flip it over and you'll find your work has a beautiful animation-cel quality.
These are more than a set of pens or markers. They're well worth the price and last longer than you would expect. These will always be a staple in my scrapbooking tool box.
I love these...You do have to write slowly on textured stuff, but they had a bit of texture and so much oomph. I use them all the time on black paper. I wish they could come out with more colors. they are pastelly, but they rock with so much. I would test them on a scrap paper first, because they come out a bit lighter than the lid, especially the grey.
Then these are the pens for you? Have you searched and search for a white pen that actually came out white? Here is is! I have never seen pens that write as well as these Souffle pens. They even dry fast! The colors are great also! High quality, write great, dry fast, what more could you ask for?
I bought every color I could find in these pens. I hate to journal, but the pens make it so much fun. They puff up and look really cool. The ink need to dry for a bit, but it is well worth the wait. I would recommend these to anyone. Have fun!!!
LOVE LOVE THEM! If you draw with them and then add a heat tool they will ball up and make pretty writing!! I havent tried it yet but I read that somewhere weither it works or not I am not sure!!
I debated whether or not I want to spend the money on these, but after reading numerous positive reviews about it I decided to purchase them. They are so fabulous and worth the money. They are PUFFY! and they are COOL to use with your craft project.
I'm new to Scrapbook.com and have made a few purchases and thus far I have been very happy with their products.
I love using these pens on dark paper. They show up really well. It's fun to doodle and write with them. They weren't as puffy as I would have liked, but then again these aren't puffy paints, they are pens/markers. I liked the variety of colors and ease of use. What you can do with them is really endless.
Maybe its just me but i dont think these pens are very puffy at all; yes you can feel a texture change and they are not shiny but thats all.
I will not recomend these if you want really noticeble puff but they are great as doodle pens and 2 draw a little bit with .
They are great for writing ; its just they dont get very puffy.
BUT you do get loads of different colours which are nice and they are good for most writing
I can see where these pens could be fun to doodle with. I guess I expected them to be a little puffier and not run as much. They probably would have been great on a non-porous surface. I did enjoy them though. You have to write really slow!
Yes, they do puff up (some) on glossy non-porous surfaces, however, the majority of my writing surfaces are porous and it just absorbs the pen and it doesn't puff up. It's basically just another pen on porous surfaces. Also, the colors are EXTREMELY day-glo so I find myself using the white and black ones only. Just buying 2 pens would have made this a better purchase since I only use those two.
