How to Compare Gel Ink Pens:
A gel ink pen is a type of pen in which thick and opaque pigment is suspended in a water-based gel, enabling it to appear clearly on a dark colored surface--as opposed to an ordinary ballpoint pen.
- Width of Point: The size of the tip ranges from; 0.18 mm to 1.5 mm, which depends on the usage of the pen. You may go for a smaller size tip for finer and precise strokes, as opposed to a bigger sized tip for thicker and bolder strokes for emphasis. The finer the tip, the less smudges are likely to occur.
- Color: Different colors are available in packs, and the barrel of the pen is refillable. Different shades and tints give documents a professional look when used to sign signatures.
- Price Range: Gel pens are not expensive, considering their usefulness.
How to Get Ink Flowing in Gel Pens:
Gel pens are a very popular utensil for writing and drawing. The ink usually flows through the pens very smoothly, giving off a loud, bold texture. The main drawback to gel pens is that they are prone to drying out. Because the gel in the pens is made of mostly liquid, evaporation causes them to dry out and, in some cases, stop working. Fortunately, there are a few methods that you can try to get the ink flowing back through your gel pen.
- Remove the lid from your gel pen.
- Tap the nose of the pen on a sheet of paper.
- Draw small circles onto the sheet of paper. If ink does not flow from the pen, move on to Step 4.
- Rub the nose of the pen against your finger. The natural oils in the skin usually help to get the ball rolling and the ink softened up (from body heat).
- Use a lighter. Quickly and gently move the tip of the pen through the lighter. If there is any dried ink at the nose of the pen, this will soften it up and get the ink flowing again. Do not leave the pen in the lighter for more than one second or it could melt or cause injury. If the ink is still not flowing from the pen, move on to Step 5.
- Wet the tip of the pen. Sometimes the ball in the tip of the gel pen gets stuck. This would cause the ink to stay locked inside the pen. By wetting the nose of the pen, you moisten the ball and help it move again. If water does not do the trick, try using a cotton swab and wet it with vegetable oil. Apply to the tip of the pen.
