Hayward, CA (PRWEB) June 29, 2007
Sakura Color Products of America, Inc., (Sakura), the inventor of oil pastels and gel ink, announced today its new Gelly Roll® Gold Shadow™ metallic ink roller pen. Scribes of all ages can have handwriting that sparkles of gold bordered by a contrasting color of pink, lavender, green, blue, or black. The smooth flowing 1.0mm ball leaves a bold 0.7mm shiny line. This patented two-tone effect continues Sakura's commitment to develop products that empower individual self-expression and creativity.
"Gold Shadow is fun to use and interactive because the gold line changes as you watch to include a colored border which forms the final mark," states Joanne Fink, well known calligrapher and lettering artist. "This tool has many interesting ways that it can be used. I like the flow and smooth contiguous line of Gold Shadow."
From doodles to journal entries, special invitations, gift tags, handmade cards or scrapbook embellishments, this new writing instrument gives a distinctive flair to anyone's penmanship. Gold Shadow™ adds an extra special touch of shimmer and color to handwritten notes, stationery, cards and scrapbook creations.
The Gelly Roll® Gold Shadow™ pen is certified non-toxic to children by the Arts & Creative Materials Institute allowing the "AP" seal of approval to be displayed.
Gelly Roll® Gold Shadow™ pens are sold individually with manufacturer's suggested retail price (MSRP) of $1.69 per pen, and merchandised in a hanging clamshell package containing a five-pen set with a MSRP of $8.45.
