In today’s post I will be reviewing;
- Manufacturer/Brand; Kuretake: Zig Memory System, Writer
- RRP at time of writing: £10-£15
Reason For Buying
I bought my first Zig Writer for Art Journalling, a black one.
- Photo Safe
- Acid Free
- Archival Quality
- Non Bleeding
- Smear-Proof (Once dry)
- Two ended pen; 0.5 mm and 1.2 mm
- 48 Colours in the range. (At time of Writing)
- Colours co-ordinate with other pens in the Zig Memory System ranges.
I don’t have any, one tip you need to store the pens flat as they share a central ink source. If you store them on end the opposite end will go dry.
Superb, well-fitting lids that are still easy to remove. Comfortable in the hand. Nibs last well and are robust. The ink tone is also superb. Strong stable colours in each pen.
Value for Money
These pens are fairly priced for their quality. They may not be the cheapest on the market but their quality and long life make them worth the investment. Also the fact that the colours co-ordinate across other pens is a big plus.
Would I buy it Again?
Totally. So far I’ve only bought a pack of 8, but that’s because I’m lacking budget for more. These pens are available singly or in packs of eight or ten.
Superb pens, like the others in the Zig Memory System they are a joy to use. I particularly like the fact that the colour pallet co-ordinates across other pen designs in the range. This is wonderful and a great selling point.
For a list of stockists check the Kuretake website, it will also list the full colour range within the online catalogue.
Best wishes and thanks for reading, see you soon
