Thank you for taking the time and reading my review!
I did have difficulty with the 2.5 sized pen in that the flat head actually wasn't flat, but slightly concaved, creating a gap and causing a double strike at each end instead of being a full line. A quick call to the manufacturer replaced my defective pen promptly. :-)
The package contains a 2mm tip (2), 2.5mm tip (1), and 3.0mm tip (1).
The information I found most helpful in the instruction booklet was how to determine the appropriate height of letters based on the width of the tip.The suggestion is to use the full width of the tip to draw a total of five horizontal marks (staggered, from lower left to upper right - see picture). The total distance from the bottom to the top of the stack is equal to the letter height that tip is designed to produce.
As it turns out, it would have been ideal to have a narrower tip (1.5mm) to perfectly complete the lettering on a certificate. I found myself wishing one of the two 2.0mm tips would have been 1.5mm instead.
If you ever wanted to write calligraphy using a marker - this is it.
It's convenient, lightweight, and creates beautiful script easily. Various widths allow you to give your scripts some layering, and they work just as well at angle if you want a fine edge instead of flat edge.
- Ink runs out quite soon
- The print on the marker itself wears off quite easily (might be my sweaty palm, but still...)
Overall it's a good purchase for fun and experimentation. Worth trying at least once.
