Product Review: Ink Joy by Paper Mate

Updated on April 28, 2013

Writing With Ease is Important to a Writer

I have always loved to write, but I suffer from arthritis pain. The traditional way to write with a pen or pencil becomes harder to manage as the pain keeps me from doing it. Regular pens and pencils don’t work well for me if I need to write for very long. My hands cramp and I either have to take several breaks before I finish a letter or stop and go back to it at another time. Using a keyboard has become my main way to write. I found myself writing less and less if I had to do it with a pen or pencil. I still enjoy writing personal letters to loved ones and I still fill notebooks with poems, stories and notes taken from various research sources. Writing notes and ideas as they occur are important to a writer. I need an easier way to jot things down.


The Day I Found Ink Joy

One day while browsing a local variety store I found something truly amazing. I bought a pack of two ink pens called Ink Joy by Paper Mate. The writing on the package claimed it to be an effortless way to write. My first letter using Ink Joy was three pages long and I wrote it without having to take a break. It is everything its manufacturer claims it to be. Ink Joy comes in many colors and designs. Besides from being inexpensive, these pens are made by a company that’s been making well quality ink pens for many years. They certainly built a winner this time. People suffering from any problems with their hands can guide this pen with ease. One does not need a tight grip or much pressure to make it write. I’ve used many pens over the years and this one offers comfort the others couldn’t. I have only tried the black Ink Joy 100 RT, but there are many more designs and colors available. The pen delivers a clear sharp image and does not drag or skip like others do. It writes from start to finish every time.

See What Others Say About Ink Joy

Ink Joy has its own Facebook page. See what folks are saying about Ink Joy. Anyone with a reason to use a pen will benefit from writing with an Ink Joy pen by Papermate. I highly recommend this pen. Students, authors, and letter writers alike will be glad they found such a product for effortless writing. Journalist, teachers, and even cooks will write with ease. Why spend money on high priced pens when these pens are so much better. I wish I had tried them much sooner and I know you will be wishing the same thing. When you can’t use a keyboard, an Ink Joy pen is the next best thing. I’m not trying to sound like a commercial here or even promote extra sales for anyone. I merely want to pass along an experience to change the way someone suffering with arthritis, carpal tunnel or other pain writes. This could even help stop future discomfort for those not affected yet. Would it not be great if someone is spared the agony associated with hand cramps just by this simple prevention?

Ink Joy is Great for Artwork

If Ink Joy pens deliver an effortless writing experience, imagine what a creative artist can do with them. Art work drawn with clear crisp lines and plenty of colors, too. Perhaps Ink Joy can spare the discomfort of hand cramps for the artist, too. Drawing never got easier and Paper Mate wants your opinion. Visit their website and let them know what you think.

      Bapi and Satria, you have very interesting, yet confusing comments added to this review. Could it be they were meant for other hubs?

      Thanks for Corelie for stopping by and I hope your comment was meant for this hub instead of the last two comments.

      Jackie, I am a watercolor ptianer and occasional teacher who lives in a cottage in the woods, on a tiny peninsula poking out into the Pacific on the west coast of the US Washington state. I have followed your blog for several years and love your work as well as the way you share your life with those of us who lurk here. My morning visits to your studio brighten my predominately gray days we get over two and half meters of rain here every year. I love your reports on all the new techniques you try and find them inspiring. I tried the gold leaf on a painting of young cowboys and ponies and sold it for a tidy sum. I was wondering if you get bothered by the solitude of your studio at times? Pat
