They light up my life!

Pros:bright colors, do not bleed, dry quickly

Cons:not for permanent marking or general use

The Bottom Line: these highlighters work for me, and I like the colors


I do a lot of highlighting while I write and research my novels and stories. Sometimes I need to mark a passage in a book to make it easy to find it later, and sometimes I need to highlight something on my manuscript.

I got tired of always highlighting with drab old yellow, so I got several of these fat, wide point highlighters. I still have the blue pen and the fluorescent yellow one, but my granddaughter took the pink and orange ones for her school work. They all have light ink that lets the background show through, so the highlighting draws your attention to something important without blocking out the text, as a darker color would do. These pens have bright colors that I enjoy looking at.

Uses:

I use these pens for highlighting text in books and manuscripts, and they never smear the letters that I highlight. I also use them to draw on other people’s diagrams, so it is easy to tell which markings are mine.

Another way to use them is for art work, if you want the background colors to show through.

The darker colors, like blue and orange, can be used to write a note or a phone number in a pinch, like when I simply cannot find the ballpoint pen that I just had in my hand. Yet they are still light enough to let text show through behind the highlighting.

Ease of use:

The chisel tips make it easy to draw a bold line or a thin line, depending on how you hold the pen. The tips are about a quarter of an inch long, and if you put the flat face down on the paper, you get a bold line slightly less than a quarter of an inch wide. If you put the thin edge of the tip down on the paper, you get a thin line, almost as thin as a pencil stroke.

The tip is made of soft felt, and it glides smoothly across the paper without sticking. I have had trouble with some cheap brands that had rough spots on the felt which would stick and mess up my neat line with a skip or a blob.

The thick barrel is easy to hold onto, but it can make it difficult to draw precise lines. Your hand can get uncomfortable, if you use it for a long time. It reminds my of those fat crayons that they made us use in Kindergarten, while I looked with extreme jealousy upon the older kids with their thin crayons. These highlighter pens are actually fatter than those clunky old crayons.

Product information:

I could not find a web site for the manufacturer, so I got this information from

www.compusa.com

“(Based on manufacturer's information)
Sanford Major Accent Highlighters

Highlighters in tank style offer easy gliding chisel tip for a smooth highlighting experience. A dependable and long-lasting highlighter for a long write-life. Bright see-through colors increase information retrieval efficiency. The chisel tip lets you highlight both wide and narrow lines of text. Quick-drying, odorless and nontoxic ink. Broad point.

And then I found the manufacturer’s web site, silly me:

www.sanfordcorp.com

Closing thoughts:

I recommend these highlighters. For more precise work, you can get fine tip highlighter pens, but for regular highlighting, these are good.

They have no odor, dry quickly and are nontoxic.

The colors are pretty.

Thank you so much for reading my Epinion!
