Good day my fellow MyLotters, According to the dictionary ball pen a pen that has a small metal ball as the point of transfer of ink to paper. If you are a student, ball pen was one of the important tool that you should have if you are entering in your classroom . It's just like a sword of a warrior. When I was still studying, I usually use the black colored ball pen, I rarely used other colors like blue and red . Now a days there are lot colors of ball pen to choose from, there are some green, yellow, pink and many more. How about you, what the color of the ink of your ballpen? God bless. Happy MyLotting .

My ink of choice is black. It's crisp, easy to read, and easy on the eyes. Kind of boring, I know, but I like it.

I prefer to use blue ink ball pen. I don't like to see black ink. Red ink are not allowed. Only teachers should use it at my school. I also like gel ink. It let my writing look totally different. So no i don't like lack ink like you but i like blue ink.

Good day Renhard, Blue is my favorite color, but when it comes for ball pen, I prefer to use black . And I think red is for marking and for checking use only .

Hi brienn, nowadays we are mostly dependent on our computer to do our work instead of paper and pen. Though, we still need a pen in our daily life. Very often we have to jot down important information or to drop signature on documents, on outlet receipts when doing purchasing via cards. For the sake of convenient it’s nice for us to carry pen with us all the time I like ball pen with black ink. The writing fonts look much clear and vivid in black on whatever light color paper. Other than the black one I keep another multi colors ball pen. I pick the one with black, green and red. I like making different color of marks on the notes. This is convenient for me to distinguish which one is more important Happy posting

The only color I ever use is blue. I just love how it looks and how it stands out better than black ink.

Good day warren06, You got a cool ball pen there, well I actually have something like that when I was in elementary . It is really cool, you only have to choose what color you like, and just push it downwards and wallah, you got a new colored ball pen.

Black. I don't know, it somehow seems more professional than any other color.

I prefer only black ink in my ball point pen. I think it is more attractive when written on a white exam paper with black ink. May be this could help me get little extra marks in my exams.... ( I believe.... )

I prefer either a black ballpen or a blue one. Any other colors do not suit me. It just doesn't feel right writing with red ink in school...

Good day merlinsorca, Yeah you are right writing with red ink is not suitable for a student, it is for those professor and teacher for their checking and correction purpose .

I personally have a baby blue ball point pen sitting here on my desk right now. I also have red, hot pink, green and orange, lol. I love to use all sorts of colors, sometimes I use a different color just to set it apart from the rest of my writing so that I'll be drawn to it later...that way I don't forget about it!

I absolutely LOVE Black G2 Pilot Pens. Sure, they're a bit expensive but to me they are so worth it. They write sooo good.

I am very partial to color black. I just think that it is the universal color. It is very formal for me and it looks neat for me. Once in a while, when I want to immediately see what I have written, I use red ink, to highlight its importance.

The pens that I used for my main note taking was always black or blue. However, whenever I was taking notes I also had a package of colored pens at my disposal as well to write the important words, or to highlight certain key points that were mentioned. This made for a great system of keeping things organized without it getting too overwhelming. Now that I am not a student anymore, I typically just keep a couple of blue or black pens at my disposal.

Good day dorannmwin, That's a pretty nice idea on organizing your notes . Well for me I am too lazy to do that, so I usually use only one color for writing .

I used black and blue ballpen in all of my writing and of taking notes. I only used ballpen with different colors to highlight the main words in a sentences and paragraph. or like making a circles and in drawing, sketches and in making doodles. I used ballpen with different colors like coloring pencils to draw or illustrate an images.

Good day neelianoscet, That's nice, using some color pen for highlighting the main words in a sentence, its like using the features of MS Word, maybe I should try to do it on my notes . And it is also nice to use coloring pencils for illustration and for drawings.

I like any color ink, but it has to be a gel pen. I prefer the Pilot V5 in red, but I can use others.

I used to use the multi color pens which held 4 or more colors when I was in high school. After going to work and working on important legal documents I learned to stick to blue ink pens. It's much easier to tell the difference between your original signature and a copy although, with color copiers now, it can be much closer than in years past.

Dear Brienn, Congrats on reaching your payout at Trekpay... I normally use black and blue ballpoint. But I like to carry along with me a black ball point because it is more versatile and 'safer' in the sense where most legal documents and Government forms required one to fill up in black ball point. I heard from my 2nd sister, she read from somewhere that it is no good to write our own name with red pen. Not so auspiciuos I think ! All the best and do take care..

As a student, I always use a black one and never use the other color. If I don't bring the black pen and I just bring the other color, I will buy the black one. That's because the students at my School must use the black one and no one who may use he other color pen, that because the writing with the black pen more easy to read than the other color one.
