At last year’s employee safety expo, one table was giving away Sharpie Pens—like hotcakes, they went. I was expecting another good promotional pen presence this year, but the only brand name pen I found was this Paper Mate InkJoy.

It was purple. I couldn't resist.

Simple, colorful design, rubbery grip, and translucent barrel—always a good style choice. And a lot of space for promotional branding.

Warning: this can get messy. Mostly on you, mostly inexplicably and without warning

The negatives: every so often gets messy in ways I don’t understand. I have ballpoint ink on parts of my hand that have no contact with the pen. And the ink isn’t a super-rich black. Looking closely at a line is almost like looking at a fingerprint. But in spite of all that, the InkJoy is enjoyable to write with. It’s pleasantly smooth. It isn’t perfect, but it’s nice.

If you feel that Jetstreams are just too nice, this InkJoy is the perfect blend of decent writing and overall cheapness

I wasn’t expecting to be impressed by a promotional pen picked up for free to advertise some company, but the InkJoy surprised me with its smooth usability. Available all over the place!
