I just purchased the new gel pens in 0.7 size and it's the best gel pen yet. I've always been a fan of papermate ballpoint pens, so much so that I hoard them but the gel pens have changed my life. I like the variety of colors, it truly does write smoothly with no smearing. The design of the pen case is awesome, I am partial to larger pen cases. It really feels good to hold it in your hands and my number one favorite thing is that there's a window to see where your ink is at. I'm neurotic in the fact that I hate to start journaling and turns out I have to use another pen in the middle of writing because the inks run out and I had no clue it was low. Great job on this one Papermate.

I bought this pen a few weeks ago and I loved the gel pen as soon as I got it. However, after less than a week, it started skipping. I am a student and I used the pens to take notes, write in my planner and other things in and out of class. With over half a stick of ink left, I was confused as to why it seemed to be out of ink. I have tried different methods to get the pen working again, and it did for a couple sentences and it started skipping again... in the end I had to pull out a different pen.

Dries instantly

Comments about Paper Mate InkJoy Gel Retractable Pen:

I was a bit skeptical about these pens since I have used Pilot Gel pens for many years. I must say I am impressed with the drying speed. Good job PaperMate.

Love the Pens, But Not The Refills

By Amelia94

from Boulder, CO, United States

Comments about Paper Mate InkJoy Gel Retractable Pen:

I love these pens. One of my favorites is the slate blue ones. But after searching and searching I can only find refills for black and regular blue. Super wasteful and expensive to buy a whole new pen every time I run out of ink. I'll keep buying them, maybe. But I probably won't go around talking them up any time soon.

Skips ink!

By Jenn22

from Middletown, DE, United States

Comments about Paper Mate InkJoy Gel Retractable Pen:

i bought my pens about a week ago. I absolutely loved the pen when i first got it. it wrote so smooth! they were my new favorite pens! Unfortunately, they are now skipping ink as i am writing and that is very frustrating. if these pens were to be improved i would be willing to re try the product. But, for now i will not be buying this product again.

Comments about Paper Mate InkJoy Gel Retractable Pen:

I love the design and feel of these pens, the colors are bright and then I find out they're not water resistant! Yikes all of my notes washed away I was so sad. Please let me know when they are water resistant.

Choppy writing halfway through the life of the pen

By Panderdash

from Undisclosed

Comments about Paper Mate InkJoy Gel Retractable Pen:

So after trying these out I have to say, they are amazing when you first get them. Actually the first couple days I had it I was ready to claim it as the best pen I've ever used. Then it started happening. Clean lines broken, a very scratchy write. At first I was ready to call it a defect on the actual pen, so I tried the next one. Again it started out silky smooth only to scratch and break lines when the yank was only half empty. Fortunately I found that the body can be used for jetstream refills. Because I do love the quality of the body.

Cartridge Comparison Guide
  • Cartridge Types
  • Ink & Toner Basics
  • Number of Pages & Shelf Life
Cartridge Type
Genuine or OEM (Original) Cartridges Remanufactured Cartridges Compatible Cartridges
Description OEM stands for original equipment manufacturer, meaning the cartridge was made by the same company that made your printer. Original brand cartridges are very reliable and sometimes the only option if your printer is new to market or uncommon. Remanufactured ink is a genuine brand cartridge that has gone through one cycle of use. After use, the cartridge is recycled, acquired by a remanufacturing facility and put through a rigorous professional refurbishing process. During the refurbishing process the cartridge is disassembled, thoroughly cleaned and tested for quality. It's then carefully refilled, tested again and brought back to life. Buying remanufactured prevents one less cartridge from ending up in a landfill. A compatible cartridge is a brand new ink cartridge built by a manufacturer other than your printer. It's like buying the generic version of the genuine brand. Most are uniquely designed to differentiate from genuine cartridges. Despite any structural difference you may notice, the cartridge will still fit in your machine and print a full yield, just like the original brand.
Price Factors Many printer manufacturers follow the razor-and-blades business model which may result in higher priced genuine cartridges. Remanufactured ink is much cheaper than the original brand ink. It's far more cost effective to refurbish a previously used cartridge than create a new OEM from scratch. Compatible ink is much cheaper than the original brand. Compatible suppliers don't have to worry about the additional costs that hinder OEMs like new printers or firmware, which lets them keep prices low.
Quality Original cartridges work extremely well and are covered under a warranty by the printer manufacturer High quality remanufactured ink will match the quality of the original, but not all remanufactured ink is created equal. Make sure you buy from a reputable supplier in order to get the absolute best results. High quality compatible ink will match the quality of the original, but not all compatible ink is created equal. Make sure you buy from a reputable supplier in order to get the absolute best results.
What's the difference between ink and toner cartridges?
Ink Cartridges Toner Cartridges
Printer Type Work with inkjet printers Work with laser printers
Material Liquid ink Dry powder
How it works Inkjet printers use a series of nozzles that spray tiny drops of ink directly on the print suface Laser toner printers use static electricity and heat to bond dry toner powder to a page
Commonly used by Casual home users, small business and photographers Large businesses and schools
Number of Pages You Can Print A cartridge's page yield is the estimated number of pages you can print. Page yield is based on 5% page coverage. This means that the quoted page yield is based upon printed pages where only 5% of the page has been imprinted with ink. For example, a short memo has approximately 5% coverage. If you have a cartridge that has a yield of 500 pages, it can print 500 pages of that short memo. If you are printing letters, photos or graphics, your coverage will vary greatly and your page yield will drop significantly.
Cartridge Warranty and Shelf Life Most ink and toner cartridges include a warranty or "best by" date on their box. Remanufactured and compatible ink cartridges can last 12-18 months unopened, and toner cartridges can last up to 3 years.
Cartridge Care and Storage Only open a cartridge when you need it. Opened cartridges will eventually dry out, especially if the protective tape or clip has been removed. If you have an open ink cartridge around and would like to try and prevent it from drying out, place it nozzle side up in a plastic airtight tub. If your cartridge came with protective tape or a clip reapply both before storing. Place a damp cloth or paper towel in the tub, next to the cartridge and keep it stored in a cool, dark place.
