Rollerballs have a small ball at the tip of the pen, ensuring that the ink flows steadily from pen to paper. This results in uniform text with no scratching.

Rollerballs, a different kind of writing pen

Like ballpoint pens, rollerballs have a small ball at their tip. This glides smoothly over the paper when writing, applying ink in the process.

  • Rollerballs use water-based ink. This means that it is thinner than the ink used in a ballpoint pen, so it produces particularly uniform text.
  • The result on paper is similar to a fountain pen. However, the rollerball does not scratch the paper as much. This makes these writing pens an excellent alternative to fountain pens.
