OfficeMax generously sent an assortment of pens, pencils and highlighters for review and they were also kind enough to offer the same items to be given away to one lucky recipient! One winner will be chosen from the comments on this blog post. Winner will be selected on Sunday, August 25. Be sure to either leave your email in the comment OR email me your name after you leave a comment (Jackie (at) LettersAndJournals (dot) com.

You can see a sample of each item below, but the full assortment of product is in the following pictures. In the notebook photos I used each product to show how I sampled the different writing instraments.

This 10-pack of highlighters was a joy to use. I love the variety of colors and the heavy smooth flow of the highlighter ink. You can see in the pictures above how I used the highlighters to highlight and to color. (Yes, I had fun!)
The angled tip of the highlighter made it easy to draw, color or highlight. Your choice!
 And look how nicely they fit in this pencil holder.
These 0.7 point gel pens have a smooth rich flow, like most gel pens. I'm a fine point person and found these pens very easy to write with and had no skipping or bleed-through.

Lastly, we have the box of 12 mechanical pencils. The eraser colors are eye-catching and the matching grip makes the writing a little easier. I prefer mechanical pencils with a little more heft and weight, but other than that, these pencils work superbly.
