What’s the difference between a ballpoint pen and a rollerball?
Both types of pen get their name from the ball-bearing tip that spreads the ink on the paper. It’s the ink that is the difference between the two types of pen.
Ballpoint pens use an oil-based ink that writes smoothly and dries quickly, so they’re an ideal option for taking quick notes on the go. The ballpoint pen tends to take a bit more effort to write with and you may find that your hand aches after a long writing session.
Rollerballs use water or gel-based ink, and that’s what gives them such a smooth feel on the page. Rollerball ink flows much more freely, producing a smooth fluid line, which makes them a great choice for longer writing sessions, writing in cards or sending a handwritten note.
Each style of pen brings something special to the page – ballpoints are great for writing quickly; rollerballs, for writing gracefully.
