Smoothness is defined by something called the “coefficient of friction” which is ratio between the force necessary to move one surface horizontally over another surface and the pressure between the two surfaces. ZEBRA’s Emulsion Ink Technology has the lowest (best) friction measurement of anything currently on the market, which can be found in our Z-Mulsion line of products and are available in a wide variety of colors and point sizes.
In general, the majority of our inks will function as intended in cold temperatures not lower than -5 degrees Celsius, but may vary based on conditions. Conditions such as air humidity, how long your pen has been expose to the elements, as well as the particular writing surface. Since Zebra cannot duplicate every possible condition, we would always recommend that you test for performance for your particular situation. We always guarantee our products, so if they fail to perform properly, they can return it to Zebra Pen Corp. for replacement.
Yes, all ZEBRA products are latex free.
We do not use plastics containing BPA in any of our products.

Mail snatchers use a process called check washing to erase the ink on a check using common household chemicals and then re-write the check in any amount they think they can get away with! Protect yourself from this criminal act using check safe pens, such as the Orbitz Gel Pen. This special ink includes pigments that penetrate the paper’s surface and render it immune to many check washing techniques. Look for our Check Safe Ink logo for all our check safe pens!

Holding the grip in your hand, twist the barrel counter clockwise to unscrew and open the pen. Pull out the current cartridge and then insert the refill into the grip side, small end first, until you hear a small “pop”.

Our StylusPens come in 4 different styles and each style has a different method to replacing the ink cartridge:
