Sharpie Pen 6-pk test
Yesterday afternoon I went out in search of a multipack of Sharpie pens. Recently I had started using one again after reading a thread about them on FriendFeed. I had a pack & used one a long time ago, but at that time I was into pens with a finer line, like my favorite Sakura Pigma Micron 01s. But after I rediscovered the Sharpie pens, their thicker line started to grow on me. Anyway, in the FriendFeed thread (editor’s edit: I think!) I had read about the 4-packs with black, blue, red, and green. I went out in search of the 4-pack, but found something better — a 6-pack with orange and purple included! You all probably know my favorite color is purple, so this was quite a find for me. Hopefully when I test the colors below, none of them look bad. I’d read some complaints that the blue pens had some inconsistent shades. Anyway, here is a color test…
blue – not bad, nice slightly peacock shade (at least in the current lighting)
red – also not bad, would’ve preferred darker
green – I don’t usually like green, but this is nice & bright
orange – I’m also not a big fan of orange, but again the clear brightness of the shade is good
purple – Cool, the deep purple shade I was expecting!
Looks like I spent my money well.
Editor’s note: the picture above doesn’t quite illustrate the bright transparency of the green and orange shades, or the slight peacock shade of the blue. I was too lazy to try to get closer to the original colors.
