I was not sure what I was receiving when I got my UGLee pens in the mail. They don’t look that different from some of the “fancy” pens I can buy in the office supply stores. In fact, they are really just appear uglier. However, when I picked it up to begin writing with it, I knew there was a difference. It weighed very little. It was soft on the outside. It was easy to hold and did not hurt my fingers.
The timing was right, too. I still have not mailed my “Christmas” cards and needed to get envelopes addressed. That means LOTS of writing. Using the UGLee pen, my fingers did not get sore. The ink came out evenly and did not smudge. Even after writing what seemed like a million addresses, my fingers did not hurt. Even the little “pen” callus on my finger did not hurt. That is a positive change from normal. Have I mentioned that my fingers did not get sore?
The UGLee pen was designed by a doctor (M.D.). He came up with the idea after spending hours writing notes, orders, charts and all the other things doctors have to write on a daily basis. He designed the pen to be lightweight and ergonomically correct. In fact, he says “You don’t have to grip this material, it grips you.” It’s true. It’s not exactly sticky, but the soft rubber-like coating on the outside make it seemed to hold on to my fingers. Nice.
Here is a tidbit of information from their website that I had not considered when I was writing with the UGLee pen.
Kids need UGLee, too! You already know that it takes years of practice learning how to write. Did you know that it also takes years to build up the correct muscles to do so efficiently? Kids are also at risk for repetitive stress injury, in fact that can be where it starts! Because of their underdeveloped muscles, it is easy for children to accumulate small injuries early. Get your children an UGLee Pen and help prevent future hand problems!
Not only is the pen comfortable to use, but it is “GREEN”. (Not literally…although you can order it in green and six other colors.) What I mean is that instead of throwing it away when you run out of ink, you can order ink refills. You can even order different ink colors. That’s one less thing to go in the landfill. Good thinking, Dr. Lee!
The only potential problem I see with this pen is that if someone else uses your pen, they might “accidentally” get a case of kleptomania…and then you will be without your UGLee pen again. Nice pens tend to walk off. Especially if you work in an environment where there is much writing to do.
So, head on over to the UGLee pen website. You can find out more information and check out their deals. I think you will be pleased. I am! And, if you are not pleased, they offer a 100% money back guarantee.
