Stand out in a big way: paint your world Fluorescent Green

Rated a Very Helpful Review

Pros:Color really stands out, doesn't seep into paper over time like yellow.

Cons:May be too nontraditional for some offices.

The Bottom Line: If the cap would stay on the highlighter somewhere while I was writing it would be a five star instrument of information.


There is only one reason to include a highlighter in your work area: to quickly draw attention to information. In this digital era it's rare that paper is used for official communications but I still use my highlighter during my personal note taking sessions and during the design phase of my job. That's right, I use highlighters to help me design multimillion dollar machines!

The Fluorescent Green highlighter is my primary color. Many in my office are still enamored with the traditional yellow but I have no doubt that this is simply because they've never given it any thought!

Why green?
A couple of reasons. When I highlight a chart or graph it's not unusual for that document to then be pinned to my wall and hang there as a quick reference for a couple of years. The traditional yellow highlighters fade over this time until there is really no highlight left and the chart ends up pulled down for a refresher. The Fluorescent Green by Sanford doesn't fade after a couple of years...it looks pretty much the same as the day it went on.

When I copy a document I've highlighted to share with others in my department our copier struggles to capture yellow unless it's really set just right that week. The green version really shows through even if someone has knocked the settings in the copier off a bit.

If I'm in a meeting and paperwork begins to get passed around the table for reference it's easy for me to tell when someone is reading information I've distributed: it's the one with the green highlights. It's a quick task to see who's keeping up and who is still digging for the page.

Why Sanford?
The Sanford highlighter is thick as a cigar. Getting a grip on this thing is no problem and you can hold it all day without straining your hand. It's as thick as three or four ink pens together.

Because of the beveled tip that Sanford incorporates I can apply heavy, wide highlights or tilt my fingers slightly and apply a pencil thin line of green across the sheet. Nice!

Why not Sanford?
There is one flaw with this: where do I put my cap? It doesn't fit on the back like an ink pen and you can't put the male end of the cap into the female end of the highlighter. Oh, it fits but as soon as you start writing it falls out and the cap goes skittering across the floor. Once that cap is lost you are doomed...the highlighter won't last a day or two without the cap.

Overall:
Other than the cap problem I like this brand of highlighter. I use the pink, blue, and green varieties and am glad to have each of them in my arsenal. Each has a use and I hope to elaborate more on my other colors in separate writings. Break out of the yellow and give green a go!
