What is erasable ink and how does it work?

Hey there, fellow pen enthusiasts and stationery lovers! Today, we're diving into the wonderful world of erasable pens. Erasable pens are like the best of both worlds – the smooth writing experience of a pen and the "oops, I made a mistake" forgiveness of a pencil.

We've all been there – you're writing a note, making a list, or taking down some important information, and you make a mistake. With regular pens, it's a one-way street. You have to scratch it out, and it looks messy. (You wouldn’t believe how many times I used to restart my meal plan for the week because I can’t stand it looking messy!!) But with erasable pens, a quick swipe of the eraser, and it's like the mistake never happened! No more ruined notebooks or endless cross-outs – erasable pens save the day.

The erasable pens that we stock come in a variety of colours too. Need to colour-code your calendar? No problem! Want to add some personality to your notes? Erasable pens are the ones for you. They're perfect for both practical and creative tasks.

How does erasable ink work? 

The magic behind these pens lies in the rubber at the end. It works on heat-activated ink, which disappears completely without wearing out the paper’'s surface or the eraser. This innovative feature ensures that your writing remains clean, and your mistakes vanish with ease. It's like having a little helper by your side, always ready to assist you in your writing adventures.

So, whether you're taking notes at school, journaling, or simply doodling, Legami erasable pens will become your new best friends in the world of writing. Remember, with Legami erasable pens, no mistake lasts forever!

Please know that because the ink is heat activated, it can disappear if you leave your papers or journals in a hot location. Therefore, don't use these pens for any important documents! Also, if the pen gets hot, it can be put in the freezer for an hour to reactivate the ink.
