Intro to the history of Sakura Micron Pens

The company was initially founded as a crayons manufacturer in 1921. By 1924, Sakura invented the first-ever oil pastel that combined oil and pigment, which was patented globally as the "Cray-pas (クレパス)" trademark. ... In 1984 Sakura invented the first gel-based ink, featured in its new ballpoint pens lines

Sakura microns boast high definition and contrast to any medium. Great for comics, illustrators, and beginners of any level or style. I've traveled around the world with Sakura Micron pens. Their durability during travel is fierce like a tank. Keeping a pad of paper around microns make great mobile zine or print-making stations for you to create the next big art piece. Personally, enjoy purchasing two of the same size and keeping them in a sealed bag to keep them fresh for more art projects. I worked a job that was very mobile and in the open Micron pens with good moleskin make great for in the field note-taking, drawing breaks, and documentation through illustration. An example would be that you're in a pinch for a deadline needing archival documents of Illustrations. You pull out your micron and now you have a precise tool for creating a work of art as well as valuing your time for your own personal gain.

 

Microns Are Waterproof

Waterproof quick drying inks add to Micron pens that are also UV and fade resistant. The Nib tip will always stay moist with ink, cover the thinnest papers, and not bleed through it at all. I have worked on many different types of paper and microns have always been the choice for inking an idea as a final medium.

Textures

Trying out other textures can easily be applied to your mediums with the Micron pen. Different size Microns can make different textures or help fill in other textures. This will help you create the artwork you have always desired to make.

Zip-Lock Baggie

The Zip-Lock baggie will help the shelf life of your Sakura Micron pens. It will help the nib stay moist and your Microns all accounted for. Instead of Ink pens jumbling around your tote bag; now, they are secure in a bag in case one burst open.

Sakura Micron Pens Are Archival

Sakura Micron pens are archival. "Whats archival?" you may be asking. Archival means they are a permanent up to the highest of artistic quality ink that will last forever. The use of this ink adds great value to any illustrations and original designs. Highly sought after by collectors and art enthusiasts.

They Look Good Too!

The best part of the Sakura Micron Pen is the level of precision it brings to the quality of your work. Smooth ink drying on a paper surface as you sip on your coffee and enjoy your art session.
