Ultimate Pen Comparison!

Here at OnTimeSupplies.com, we love our pens just as much as you do! That's why we put all of our favorite pens to the test to find out which one gave us the smoothest, gap-free, and smudge-free writing.

Our testing procedure was simple: write a sentence, draw some squiggles and lines, and test how fast the ink dries. The two scribbles on the right were smudged 1 and 5 seconds after they were drawn. All tests were conducted on our standard 20-lb, 92 brightness office paper.
