I got them to grade papers. Everyone thinks you have to use a red pen to grade but what you really need is a pen that is not black or blue. Gel pens are wonderful to grade with because they glide like a marker but write much more precisely. Plus, I like grading in non-traditional grading colors like orange and pink and with glitter.
So, how do they work? They are excellent. They flow smoothly and practically glide across the page.
Note: these are not fine tip pens so if you are getting them to color very tiny areas, these may not be your best choice.
The pens come in a cardboard box with an attached lid that you flip open. The box is about 50% bigger than a boutique tissue cube. Inside, the pens are all arranged by color so that you can see the lids and pick out your color. The lids match the actual color of the gel ink very well.
I rate this collection of gel pens 4 stars out of 5.
As of the time of this review this set of gel pens cost $14.95. It is available on Amazon.com here: ECR4Kids GelWriter Premium Multicolor Gel Pens in Coloring Box (36-Count).
Note: I received a free sample of these gel pens as a part of the Amazon Vine program.
