What is a Rollerball Pen?
Rollerball Pens have a smoother faster ink flow compared to Ballpoint pens. Rollerballs are good for writing quickly as they apply more ink to the paper, making them a popular choice with students and for journaling. The ink is also bolder and produces thicker lines.
What is the difference between a Rollerball Refill and Gel Pen Refill?
Rollerball Pens use a liquid ink or can be refilled with a Gel Ink. These refills are the same thing, but Gel Ink Refills are more vivid and come in a wider choice of colours as the Gel Ink allows deeper pigmentation of the ink.
Is Rollerball Pen Ink suitable for left-handed people?
Rollerball Pens are not ideal for left-handed people as the ink takes a while to dry and is more likely to smudge as their hand passes over it when writing. However, there are some fast-drying Rollerball Pens available such as the Uni-ball Jetstream Rollerball, but they don’t tend to be refillable.
What Paper is best for Rollerball ink?
Rollerballs are best suited to a smooth medium weight cartridge paper or writing paper. If you are looking for a journal, then the paper in the Leuchtturm1917 Notebooks is ideal for the high capacity Rollerball Ink as it will not smudge or bleed.
If you use a thin or poor quality paper, Rollerball ink can bleed or ‘feather’ making it hard to read. It isn’t suitable for shiny paper surfaces either as can take too long to dry and can be prone to smudging.
