Sharing the Virtues of the Pilot Frixion Erasable Pens
If you are taking on the fun of a Bullet Journal, or even if not, you might consider purchasing some Pilot Frixion Erasable Pens. I promise these are not those horrible blue erasable pens of our childhoods!
Let me take a moment to extol the virtues of the Frixion pens. As you may have learned in my post about the Bullet Journal, I love a good list. So, here we go:
They come in a multitude of colors--the larger the pack, the more colors you receive. There are also traditional blue, black and red if you are using them in a professional setting.
They are truly erasable. You will make mistakes in your Bullet Journal, and these allow for you to correct them without leaving an unsightly mark or taking up precious space with errors.
Frixion Pens write like any other ink pen--smooth and steady.
The eraser does not wear down quickly, and matches the color of the pen and ink.
They look very pretty in a pencil cup on your desk.
Despite these wonderful attributes, there are a few things to know before you purchase them. They are so fun, your children may steal them. They do smudge like a gel pen and need a minute to dry before you run your hand over your writing or drawing. Finally--and here’s the really odd thing--they erase if exposed to heat! I once left a hot coffee cup on top of some notes from a meeting, and poof--gone forever. So, you won’t want to write your important lists and then leave them in a hot car, or you may run into trouble. I’ve heard that you can put them in a freezer to revive the writing, but I cannot personally confirm this.
I’m always grabbing new, fun pens for my desk. When I don’t need erasables, Stabilo, Sharpie or Le Pen are favorites. I’ve also tested out the other Pilot erasable products, but I keep returning to these for my Bullet Journal, and I purchase a new package whenever I find a sale at Target or Amazon.
My favorite colors are the royal blue, kelly green and magenta. Which do you prefer? Do you have a favorite colorful pen? Let me know at firstname.lastname@example.org or send me a message on instagram at andshewrites.2.
