Is it me or are these the best ballpoint pens ever made?
Paper Mate ballpoint pens have been pretty much what I’ve used since late highschool. Unlike Bic pens they don’t dry out or leak. They also work until they are out of ink, which I can’t say for Bic pens either. Plus they are very inexpensive. Perhaps it’s because Paper Mate is in mostly just the pen, pencil and eraser business, whereas Bic makes pens, shaving blades and lighters; thus, Bic is used to making stuff that is just disposable and only gets a few uses. Whereas, Paper Mate knows how to make a pen that lasts. The only change they’ve made to this model of pen is the coloring. Instead of being white with the cap and tip colored the same as the ink, the full plastic casing is now the color of the ink.
