We want to tell you why we love coloured pens. We love them for creativity, we love them for colouring in and we love them for study. There are so many benefits to having a stash of good quality pens in a choice of colours at your finger tips.
Colouring in for kids
Much has been said about adult colouring in of late. And it’s true that adult colouring in can reduce stress and help with relaxation. However let’s not forget about the benefits of colouring in for children.
Colouring in is brilliant for children. Through this practice a child can express themselves through choice of colour. Plus the stimulating activity helps with hand/eye coordination and supports concentration and patience. It’s also a very basic way to give youngsters a sense of goal reaching and achievement, building a child’s self esteem.

Colourful study sessions
Using a variety of coloured pens is a great way to help your studies. That’s one of the reasons why we love coloured pens. Colour can aid information retention as it’s known to trigger the brain’s retrieval process.
When you’re revising it’s great to use different coloured pens to put down your various pieces of vital information. Apparently colour can help you retain around 50-80 per cent more information as 90 per cent of information transmitted to the brain is visual.
