Welcome to another Sunday edition of “Stuff I Like”. You can find all the previous editions {here}. Today I want to talk about the best marker/pen ever. And the best part – I have a coupon for you to get one FREE! First the disclaimer:

EK Success Millennium .05 Black Pen – Zig Memory System

My sister Kimberly first introduced me to this wonderful pen. She kept telling me how awesome it was. How she did all her journaling on her scrapbook pages with it. How it wrote so smoothly – it was the only pen she would write in cards with. And of course, I didn’t hear a word of it. So then she just bought me one and made me use it. Once was all it took! Seriously – best pen ever! Now I have them strategically placed all around my house – one in the ‘junk’ drawer, one at my laptop, one at my desktop, one on my stamp table, etc.

When I paper scrapped, I wrote all black journaling in this pen. (They do make them in other colors as well, this is just the one I use most.) I rarely write in a card with any other pen. It is so smooth and easy to write with. And it has a nice feel to it. The black is always a nice solid line without looking overtly like you wrote with a marker. But it has the smooth, inky feel of a marker. Does that make any sense?

I have tried the .01 and I didn’t like it as much….it was tooo skinny of a point. The .05 is just perfect! I also use it on my cards sometimes. Like {here} when I drew the image out a bit – I used this pen! First I colored the extended image and then I drew the lines in with my Zig Millennium. Worked perfectly! That’s about it!!! Want to know how to get one free? Read on!

Where to get one:

Scrapbookpal.com – I know I’ve said it before, but I’ll say it again. I love this store! They have SUPER fast shipping – and they ship out the SAME day you order! Every time! I can order something and it’s at my door in 2 days! And if you spend more than $25 – shipping is free!

Most craft stores will have them as well. Just remember – the .05 (it will have an 05 in white on the black end of the cap) is the one I am recommending!

Now – if you would like to try this awesome pen for FREE, here’s how!

Add the coupon code freepen on the view cart page (Just type freepen into the box for coupons and click *add to cart* and the free .05 Black Millennium pen will appear! You do not need to add it to your card first!)

That’s it! And in case you need help finding something to purchase – I buy my Mono Multi (you know – best glue ever!!!) there as well as my Nestabilities! (They even have a good price on Zip Dry for those of you who prefer that!) Just remember – FREE shipping if you spend over $25! I love this cause I hate to pay for shipping!

Tomorrow I have my second attempt with the Copic Ciao markers to show you – I even tried shading this time!

  • Awwww man! I *just* bought Mono multi there last week!! Rats! Oh well, I’ve been eyeballing Nestabilities so I might have to buy them now….

  • I love this pen too! I like to use this one and .01 when I’ve stamped an image that didn’t quite get ink all the way down on the paper. It’s great for filling in those missed spots. Thanks for sharing!

  • I love multiliners too, Emily! Zig are a great brand. My favorite tips are .1 and .3, but I agree with you that the .5 is the most versatile size for journaling.

    Great review!

  • Thanks for the info on the pen, Emily. I just placed me a Free Shipping qualifying order. This site is a great source of products. TFS!!!
