If you know me well, you will know just how much of a fan I am of stationery! I always seem to be picking up new items, I just can not help myself. So when Creoly asked me if I wanted to collaborate with them, I jumped at the opportunity. I am now a part of their “Early Bird” Review Club, I will be receiving some of their favourite products to review here on An Ocean Glimmer. I am very excited about this collaboration and I can not wait to see where we go together.
Before we go into my first product I received, let me tell you a little bit about the company. Creoly are a small team of stationery addicts who work to source and offer a range of stationery for both personal and business customers. They offer a range of products from Notebooks & Journals to Pens & Pencils. As well as the smaller items like Paper Clips, Binder Clips and Sticky Notes. They sell their own branded items and big names like Filofax, Leuchtturm1917 & Moleskine.
For my first product, I received the Black Marble Pen Duo, now let me just tell you how gorgeous this set is! You receive two Black Marble Pens for £15.99, now I know what you’re thinking, that’s a little step in price for some pens. Well, it’s actually very much worth it, for a start you receive two pens. They are gifted in a hardback case, meaning they won’t get damaged and you can keep them in here for safe keeping as well as them looking gorgeous inside. These would be a lovely gift for any stationery lover!
There was very good communication from the very first minute, I received an email to say they had received my order, which I had placed on Friday 8 September. Then on Monday 11 September, I received confirmation that they had been dispatched with an expected date of Friday 15 but I was very lucky to receive them on Tuesday 12 September. I love companies like this, I suppose they have to say extra dates, else we will be expecting it every time whenever we order anything.
What I love most about these pens are that they are such a blogger stereotype item! They are Black Marble with Rose Gold features, I know that is my dream from a pen. It makes them look gorgeous, I wish I had come across these sooner. The quality of them is amazing, as I said early for the duo it is £15.99 but they are soo heavy! I have found that I can’t use them as long as I would normally use a pen, as I mostly use the thin Bic biro pens. I love using them though, I have gotten used to them so they aren’t feeling as heavy as when I was first using them.
I love using them though, I have gotten used to them so they aren’t feeling as heavy as when I was first using them. I am very fussy with the types of pens I use, as I said previously I adore using Bic pens, they are such great quality for the price as well as being long-lasting. I swear I have had my current pen for forever and it’s not stopping anytime soon. I also find that some pens don’t write as well, they can leave marks on the paper and don’t leave my writing looking presentable. Is it weird to say that I feel professional while using these pens? They are amazing and I can’t rate them highly enough.
Is it weird to say that I feel professional while using these pens? They are amazing and I can’t rate them highly enough. I would definitely feel proud to take these out of my bag in a meeting, they also fit me very well with the colouring and style. Like most pens, I did have problems when I first used them, one pen left marks and didn’t write as well as I wanted it to. I thought this was just because they were new but after a while, it didn’t improve. With the other pen, it did and I’m happily using that one, hopefully, the other one will improve over time.
I hope you guys have enjoyed this post! I am definitely interested in the other products Creoly has to offer. This may become a regular thing on An Ocean Glimmer, so look out for my future reviews. I wonder what I’ll receive next.
