Why do artists, writers and illustrators alike all choose the Pigma Micron pen?

The difference lies in the formula of pigment-based inks that are reliable, permanent and more stable than dye-based inks. Create while enjoying smear-free, no bleed-through and featherless writing and drawing on most papers.  Pigma ink, invented by Sakura over 25 years ago, continues to be the most reliable permanent ink on the market today. Artists, consumers, the government, and scientists consider Pigma Micron a necessary basic tool for any archival-quality, handwritten project. Manga artists, professional illustrators and PIGMA INK easily outlasts and outperforms competitors which have tried to duplicate this ink technology. Scrapbook enthusiasts and crafters require its archival quality for preserving memories in journals, and for making cards, quilts and dolls.

Having such a long history with this specialised ink, Sakura has been able to constantly improve upon its formula resulting in the smoothest flow, stable pigment colours, and consistent line widths. This permanent, fade-resistant, chemically stable, pigment-based ink will not bleed or run if liquids are spilt on or applied to the document after the ink has dried. Perfect for legal documentation, Pigma ink is nearly impossible to alter on documents, in logbooks, or on other paperwork. Sakura’s products containing Pigma ink are ACMI certified safe to use.

Technical Qualities:

Product Review – Diane Shearer

Graphic Designer & Illustrator

As an artist, I am always on the lookout for quality, affordable stationery and art supplies. One of the most common tools at my disposal is the humble ink pen. The nature of ink and the multiple uses it has as an art medium makes it much more demanding and versatile than other art mediums. Ink is perfect for both traditional and experimental approaches to drawing, there is so much more to this simple tool than meets the eye. The Pigma Micron PN is the perfect everyday art pen that will be coming with me on many adventures in the future. And this is why:

Originally drawing pens were used by architects and engineers because they are highly precise, but they quickly became popular among illustrators and designers and the more expensive metal tip was replaced by plastic ones which increased the performance because plastic is more flexible and capable of more drawing angles than the metal ones. The new Pigma Micron PN (“PN” stands for “Plastic Nib”) is exactly what artists are looking for in a pen. It has a plastic nib that comes to a nice fine point. The tip feels sturdy as you draw and its firmness does not hinder the flow of your movement and offers brilliant ink flow. It creates a skip-free line, which is amazing for writing but as an illustrator, I missed that ‘flaw’ as I love it when the line breaks as I move quickly across the page, I had to put in a lot more effort to achieve that imperfect effect.

My favourite thing about the Pigma Micron PN is the fine or medium line width you can achieve from one single pen depending on the pressure you apply. This is great for an artist like me who carries a pen and paper around all the time. No need to carry 5 different thickness pens to get different effects, all I need is a Micron PN that varies between 0.4mm to 0.5mm depending on the pressure used and there is no bleeding or blotting with harder pressure. The ink is quick-drying, waterproof and fade-resistant, meaning my hard work won’t fade over time or run down the page if it gets wet (from leaking water bottles or rainy day treks). The 8 piece pen set comes in black, red, blue, rose, purple, sepia, burgundy and blue/black. In this article image, you can see I managed to use most of the colours creating an interesting approach to an ink drawing. The colour consistency is perfect, which is often difficult to achieve in coloured pens. Pigma Micron PN’s has allowed me a lot of freedom with its great archival quality ink, precise line widths and colour variety. There is no better tool for artists on the move like me.

    Great set of pens with deep black ink. I am a newbie to ink drawing and feel this set is everything you need to get started. Love the fine details I am able to add to my flowers and doodles.

  2. Safiyyah Wadia (verified owner)

    These pens are really great and at a great price as well. They do not smudge and are just a dream to write, doodle or draw with. I will be purchasing a second set.
