I had a favorite pen set until this one was introduced; now it's my favorite because the tips are strong and the ink fluid and rich. American Crafts has worked out all of the bugs to come up with a favorite pen set for beginners and veterans alike. You'll love using these pens and how the ink looks on your projects. A .05 pen tip is pretty much standard for most writing but the other tips are ideal for special designs such as doodling, writing mini lettering or for more bold lines in titles. Be sure to check out the colored pens (in sets and individually) too.

Seriously. These pens are my ultimate scrapbooking product. I'm on my third set of them, I use them that much! I LOVE that they write so smoothly, even on textured cardstock. Throw away any other black writing pen you have for scrapbooking, because once you buy these, you will SURELY not go back! (And get the 5 pack, because you will WANT all the different point sizes!)

I searched quite awhile for the perfect set of pens to start my journaling projects and am so very happy that I came across these. I was impressed by all the other reviews I had read and was not dissapointed when I received them and have already gotten use out of every single one.
These pens write so smooth and I love that they come packaged in various sizes so you have all your writing needs in one purchase. They write on photos also, but I suggest you hold off on touching the writing for just a minute.

Ok, I confess, I am an addict. I collect pens like everything else. Although, I hardly use the majority of them. From the day that I tried one of these, I was HOOKED!! It is the best black pen that I have ever tried! This pack is awesome for variety as well since it gives you the different sizes of tips in it. They are very smooth and write great... EVEN ON BAZZILL!! This would be my number one recommendation to anyone who wants a great black pen that lasts and writes great!!
I think I've found a new favorite! I love these pens! I just went through a pack of these and ordered two more packs. I just can't be without these. Love how smooth they write and they don't blead or smear!

I used these pens for the first time during a CKU event have not used any other pen since, they are the best. Hard to find so buy in quantity when you find them, I should have ordered two packs.
I never used to use pens but now i've been handwriting a lot more and these AC pens are definitely my favorite. I actually used up the last one and ordered this whole pack.

I love these pens. I have been looking for good journaling pens and these are by far the best I have found. I love them!

A bought 3 packs, one for myself and one for each of my siblings. I left the below review after testing out my pens (which worked fine) but in my sibling's pack the 0.5 pen was dry right put the pack and ran out of ink instantly. In the third pack almost none of the pens worked. This website was very helpful and easy to use and I would buy from this website again, but this product is very disappointing and I won't be buying from this brand again.
Nice, good quality pens. Even ink flow, doesn't bleed through pages at all (on artist grade paper) even when I used the 0.8 for solid colouring. I'm not a scrapbooker im an artist and what appealed to me is that these are waterproof, they dry almost instantly which is great for watercolouring.
Somethings to note are: they have a hard tip, the lines they produce come out thinner than my artist pens, and they produce a stronger smell than my non toxic pens. The package doesn't say they're non toxic so just assume that they are and maybe don't let kids use them for too long. I may not purchase again for myself, I'll probably keep looking for a brand better suited for myself, but originally I bought these as a gift for my sibling and they liked them.
In terms of shipping and customer service, the customer service was good and it was very easy to follow up on my order. I live in Canada and my package arrived in 11 days (near the shorter side of the time window the website gave me) so good.
These pens are mediocre . I am always buying and testing new brands . I have tried at least 10 brands of black pens . These pens seem dry to begin with and are kind of wide/ fat to hold . I prefer the micron set if you are looking for different width tips. I have a variety of brands that i use depending on the line look i am trying to achieve
I will not be buying these pens again
I really liked the way the pen wrote when I used it the first couple of times. I purchased this pen and within two weeks it stopped working! So frustrating, it was not even out of ink, because the ink leaked out all over my fingers.
