The Stabilo Point 88 Fine Liner is a pen I started using when I was at University. They are one of the few pens that you can buy in a brick and mortar shop such as Staples and WHSmith. With the limited range on offer in these stores, finding something like the Stabilo Point 88 Fine Liner is like finding a pot of gold in a sea of Bic and Uniball Eyes.
As I have used these pens for years one thing I have noticed is that they last very well. You can leave them for months in your pen pot without use, pick it up and start using straight away. Its the work horse of the pen world.
The Stablio Point 88 Fine Liner almost falls in line with felt tip pens. In some cases when searching online I have seen this categorised as an art pen. The pen point looks like a thin felt tip and with use it slowly wears away. As you can see from my below shot, these pens are very new.
The Stabilo Point 88 comes in a good range of colours, 30 in all. You can buy single colours from online stores such as cult pens or you can pick up multi packs of 10, 12 or 18. Essentially there is lots of choice when its comes to the Stablio Point 88.
I love the design of these pens. Again for something which is relatively low cost (80p for each individual pen) the design is colourful and bold. It's something people notice if they see you using this pen at work and it peaks their interest. I recently noticed Karren Brady using a green version on last weeks episode of the Apprentice.
My written review below shows how these pens look on a page. Coverage is good, colours are bold and stand out on the page.
These pens are fun, easy to use and definitely something that should be part of every pen addicts line up.
