Blister Card Moonlight Gel Ink Pen Set
These gelly roll pens are great quality tempera (ie not glossy), the air tight containers keep tem fresh so they don't jump when you begin your pen work. You can even get different types of papers to work better with your pens such as the metallic, souffle, stardust, moonlight ,ect
These pens are great if you love to scrapbook as there is some texture in the glaze and souffle pens.
These pens work particularly well on the very difficult black papers unlike many other pens.
These pens must be allowed to dry before adding a second layer.

What I like about the Zebra's Sarasa Gel Retractable Pen is that they have rubber grips, I struggle with pressure when using writing and drawing equipment so having a grip helps a lot.
These are great for any kind of writing as they have beautiful easy to use points and they do not smear and the multi colors make list making a breeze!
Unlike many sets even the lighter shades are easy to read and are not too pale meaning you get the full use of the sets.
The retractable style of the pens means that they stay in good shape and you cannot lose or break the caps as there are none!
