These are the best calligraphy pens I've found, but they don't last very long -- only about 4-5 pages of text.
These are pretty great markers, and I’ve really enjoyed using them...there’s only a couple of drawbacks...first make sure you’re using really smooth type of paper. The makers aren’t made for coarse paper. Second, they run out too fast! Maybe I’m just using mine too much!
I have been using Marvy Calligraphy markers for many years. They work well on a variety of papers, including Grumbacher practice pads, producing sharply defined edges and consistently smooth lines. The most recent products are a terrible disappointment.
First, the markers, sent in a sealed plastic envelope, leaked during shipment. Specifically, the Green 5.0mm marker leaked onto the surface of all the other markers and the nib of the 5.0mm Red marker. It was a messy ordeal cleaning the markers.
The Green 5.0mm marker never worked properly. The edges of the lines it produced looked like bleeding paint lines, irregular and inconsistent. The lines were streaked and, no matter the orientation, the pressure or the speed of the stroke, it produced white streaks and uneven colors.
The same was true of the 5.0mm Red marker. It, too, produced streaked lines and uneven edges.
Most disappointing was the fact these colors were ordered for Christmas Name Cards. I would have been embarrassed to share the shoddy work produced by these Marvy Calligraphy markers.
The reason this rating is a 2, not a 1, is the Blue 2.0mm and the Red 2.0mm and 3.5mm pens worked satisfactorily although not as well as the Marvy Markers I have received from Marvy Uchida in the past.
I do calligraphy for weddings, graduations, and many other events. These are the only pens I will use. They are my absolute favorite! The ink is a good solid color (no skipping), and the angle of the tip holds its shape through many, many uses. I struggle to find these pens in stores, so I was thrilled to be able to order them online, and have them shipped to my doorstep!
Especially on Zoom... This little pen is easy to adapt to learning lettering.
