How to Choose Your Staples Stationery
Selecting the right pen is an important part of being productive and figuring out whether you work best with a fountain pen or a ballpoint pen can be quite the journey. Here are some tips to help you make your mark.
Fountain pens rely on a reservoir of ink or ink cartridges to work. A good fountain pen can last you for years and is one of the more ecological and economical types of pens as you only need to replace the ink instead of the entire pen. It can make your writing seem more elegant and the flow of the ink is very fluid however they can sometimes feel a bit scratchy or awkward if you’re not used to them.
Ballpoint pens utilise a tiny ball in the tip of the nib to help distribute the ink onto the page. They are very easy to use and as they are inexpensive, it doesn’t matter if they accidentally get chewed by the dog or lost as they can be easily replaced. They also come in a multitude of colours for you to choose from and are some of the most accessible pens on the market.
Rollerball pens are a different type of ballpoint pen. Where the ink inside a ballpoint pen is thick and sticky, the ink inside of rollerball pens is much more liquid, providing a more fluid mark that can be more even than a ballpoint pen. Gel pens are a variety of rollerball pens and use an ink with a consistency somewhere in between the other two pen types.
Nowadays, pencils use a material called graphite to make their marks though the centre is commonly still referred to as the lead. There are all kinds of hardness levels of pencils depending on the work you are doing and range from the very hard 4H to the very soft 6B. Hard pencils give crisper, lighter lines while soft pencils enable the user to smudge the darker lines much more easily. Normal writing pencils usually sit in the 2H to 2B range and offer the perfect balance of hardness and softness.
If you regularly use a pencil, the odd mistake is unavoidable. However, rather than ball up another page and toss it in the bin, make a habit of reaching for erasers that you can rely on instead. Staples’ first-rate selection of rubbers and premium erasers feature high-quality designs that quickly lift graphite and pigment from pages, leaving you with a blank space to recommence your work. Whether you're a professional looking to ensure perfection, or simply looking for reliable rubbers the kids can use, turn to Staples rubbers.
