Paper Mate review via Shoplet.com

Back to school is in full swing. From those starting pre-K to those going back for another semester in college. It's time to prepare and stock up on all those supplies that you can find listed as "needs". Shoplet.com could be a great resource if you want to avoid the hustle and bustle that office and school aisles are crowded with. Everyone is looking to get those folders, pens, paper, etc that you are looking for. Shopping online eliminates the need to be among those crowds. You can shop from the comfort of your pajamas and office chair. Shoplet is the largest e-tailer of office supplies.
Shoplet sent me some cool products by Sanford to review. Products they provide include Sharpie, PaperMate, Expo, uni-ball, Dymo and Rubbermaid.  
PaperMate is a wonderful brand. I received some unique mechanical pencils, ball point pens and the Liquid Paper that will help hide mistakes. 
The PaperMate Mechanical Pencils are triangular in shape to be easier to hold.
They boast less breakage and do not have to be sharpened. This makes them great for all those standardized tests that kids are being put through. It also has a smudge resistant eraser. And lastly, they are refillable. At $2.44 a pack, they are a decent price too. 
The PaperMate Correction Tape (Liquid Paper) is one of my favorite items.
I don't like messy mistakes. So editing until it's perfect or covering it up are a must. This makes doing so all the easier. No wet brush. It has a swivel tip too. Its easier to hold and handle with the sleek design and comfort grip. 
I love that it is made from 60% recycled materials. It applies dry so that you can start rewriting immediately. The tape is strong enough to be tear-proof. 

I loved using the limited edition Electro Pop Sharpie Markers.
I used them to work on the notebook designs I have for preparing for my baby girl due in November. 
The ultra fine tips allowed for the finer details. The colors are bright and live up to their names; Optic Orange, Techno Blue, Nano Blue, Electric Pink, and Ultra Violet. I don't use something like this often enough to want to pay $5.32 a pack though. This is geared more towards creative use. 
Lastly, they sent some PaperMate (InkJoy) Pens. This pack comes with a wonderful assortment of colored inks. I love the grips that enable comfortable writing. They don't smear either thanks to their quick drying. 
They come in 8 packs for $3.87. 
What is your favorite product?
