F03913 - Memories Direct Set of 33 Color Gel Pens in Storage Case
I purchased these gel pens awhile back and hadn't written a review until now when I saw them advertised again as a Crafting must-have... I received a defective batch as 24 of the pens had little to almost no ink in them within three uses, and the others were devoid of any ink after writing "hello" or "Happy Birthday" -- in other words, short phrases that should not have left me with NO ink in the pen! I cannot in good conscience recommend these pens to anyone. These were so inferior, I should have sent them back, but I really tried to give them the benefit of the doubt. QVC --you missed the mark on this one (as did I by not returning them in due time )!
I love these pens!!
I am back to order more!! I just love these gel pens. I have used them for coloring and already have gone through some of them. They all last for a long time and have actually had other people using them to color with. I also like them being in a storage case, easy to take them places with me. I would highly recommend these to anyone who likes gel pens or people like me that are just trying them for the first time.
In my batch only 75% (25 pens) worked as advertised. Those that worked, worked great. One didn't have ink in it at all.
I honestly couldn't tell any difference between the "metallic" and the "glitter" formulas. The blues were almost all the same color. A very pretty color, but there was an awful lot of redundancy. I also don't really see the point in getting "normal" red, black and blue gel pens. The lines they make are very thin, not luxurious like the other colors. They were pretty much like fine line ball points. The milky and silver lines weren't as yummy either, but I've found that to be typical.
The "case" was really hard to put the pens back into, so I wouldn't be using it.
I got it on sale, but I still can't justify the cost per (working) pen. So I am (sadly) sending it back.
Yes and No...
The pens really do a good job of covering whatever I'm trying to accent. The colors are bright and the ink flows well. The only problem I had was that 3 or 4 of the pens were already out of ink when I first received them. I didn't feel like sending them back, then hoping that all the pens in another set would all work. However, I do plan on ordering another set. As I said, the ones that worked really did work well.
I also purchased the ink daubers from Memories Direct. For some reason, the silver gel pen and the silver ink dauber were both dry when I received them.
I am very happy with these pens. They work great, no skips and have had them for a while now and they haven't dried out. The glitter pens do a really nice job when doing my pages. The only problem, I have is the case is alittle flimsy, but I solved that by putting them in my pen organizer.
I bought these on the scrapbooking show and LOVE them! I was very unsure if I would like them because I had gel pens before and they didn't work all the time. These are perfect! They have great flow - and don't cut off in the middle of what you are writing!
They were definately a great buy!
These gel pens are the best that I have ever tried. They are comfortable and the gel ink flows nicely. The glitters pens are great. These pens are a must have for any scrapper.
