Instead of writing down notable lines from reports, journals, books, and other documents, why not use highlighter pens? With highlighter pens, marked parts become more visible and easier to find. Even e-books and word processors have a highlighting function, which is inspired by these school and office essentials.
Highlighter pens have come a long way, too. From the usual fluorescent yellow or orange, these highlighter pens now come in a wide variety of colors (we love the pastel highlighter pens!) and tips (such as textliner pens, for example). Highlighters are now being used for art projects, pushing the limits of one’s imagination and creativity.
How to buy the best highlighter pens
Make sure you’re getting highlighter pens that meet your needs by taking these into consideration:
- Tip: A wider highlighter pen tip is better for highlighting large pieces of text, while a fine highlighter pen tip can be great for writing notes or editing. Chiseled highlighter pen tips allow for both thicker and finer lines. There are highlighter pens that have dual tips and colors, which allow users to easily switch from one tip and color to another.
- Color: The color should stand out against the paper and text, and sometimes multiple colors can be useful for color-coding.
- Ink quality: When you’re highlighting, you don’t want your highlighter ink to bleed through pages, especially when highlighting information in a book. Bleeding makes it difficult to keep your notes neat and organized.
- Dry time: No one likes messy pages. When choosing highlighter pens, make sure to choose a fast-drying highlighter to avoid smudging.
