The colored pen set has an ultra fine tip that I love, the colors are bright and deep even with the fine tip making them useful for everyday as well as for artwork. I bought 3 of these for my middle school children and the notes included are perfect for marking a spot in a textbook and there is plenty of room on them to make study notes. There are a couple of highlighters included and they are okay, not great. I don’t use highlighters often so the pens and sticky notes are more important to me and they are great! This is an excellent price for the quality supplies included overall.
