But anyway, my love affair with JetPens continues. Not only do I belong to their flickr group, but now I also am a member of their Facebook group. As a result, I have had the opportunity to participate in a couple of their promotions, which means, score! Free pens! Most recently I received two of the Uni-Ball Signo DX pens, one in 0.38mm in sky blue and one in 0.28mm in mandarin orange. The Uni-Ball Signo pen is a definite fan favorite. The PenAddict ranks these in his top five! They’re gel ink pens and have a nice, strong, fine point. The ink flows smoothly and without hesitation. I think I’d like a deeper color saturation, but this might be due to the colors I have. I asked my brother to pick up a couple in “normal” colors so I can test out my theory.
Some compare the Uni-Ball Signo DX to the Pilot Hi-Tec-C pens, but I think they are completely different animals. Here, I’ll prove it. Check out the following photo:
I have to say, too, that if you have any love for Hello Kitty, you definitely need to go to JetPens, because right now they have the Pilot Hi-Tec-C pens in a limited edition Hello Kitty series. I would not kid you about something like this.
