Special Christmas Giveaway on November 29, 2015 - Cross ATX Translucent Blue Pen

I love to write . . . this statement is probably obvious to all of you who read grandma's cookie jar! But, while I do love to write on my computer, I especially love the, "old fashioned" way of writing with pen and paper . . . yes, some of us do still write this way!

But, when writing with an actual pen and real paper, I like to use a nice pen. Over the years I've reviewed a number of pens from many companies, but I have to say, Cross Pens are absolutely my favorites! They are made with attention to details, design and quality and are so very comfortable to hold in my hand and use to write!

Today I'm very happy to share with you one of their pens . . . the ATX Translucent Blue Selectip Rolling Ball Pen . . . and stay tuned, because at the end of my review, I'm going to share details for the giveaway of one of these beautiful pens!

ATX Translucent Blue Selectip Rolling Ball Pen
Made by - Cross Pens

Favorite Features -
  • Incredible, beautiful blue color!
  • Pen is designed to be very comfortable to hold as you write. 
  • The selecttip rollerball tip writes smoothly and clearly.
  • It is obvious Cross has paid great attention to quality, design and the details of this pen.
Cross Pens says; "Streamlined from integrated clip to tapered tip, Cross ATX Gloss Selectip Rolling Ball Pen with Chrome Accents delivers singular contemporary style in a chic, ergonomic package. A delicate balance of design ingenuity and practical sensibility which is often imitated, never duplicated.

Features include:
  • Click-off cap
  • Exclusive gel ink rollerball formula flows freely like a fountain pen
  • Includes one black gel ink rollerball refill in pen
  • High-polish chrome-plated appointments
  • Comfortably tapered medium-diameter barrel
  • Unique integrated rounded clip
  • Lifetime mechanical guarantee
Cross ATX Gloss Selectip Rolling Ball Pen with Chrome Accents can easily be converted into a ballpoint pen, document highlighter or creamy porous felt-tip pen by simply changing the refill (sold separately) to desired type of tip."

I have an ATX fountain pen which I've written with for years - I love this pen! The Rollerball ATX is equally as "lovable"! It is sure to make a wonderful gift for someone on your gift list! The ATX Translucent Blue Selectip Rolling Ball Pen  makes writing fun! (At least for me!)
