Sakura has perfected the smooth ink flow technology of Gelly Roll® Classic™ White to now offer our most popular color in three nib sizes: 05 Fine, 08 Medium, and 10 Bold. The opaque white ink stands out on dark and colored papers and makes highlights pop in illustrations and comics. Use it for handlettering accents, party crafts, layered on top of colors for mixed media and bright highlights in tonal drawings. Elevate your art to another level using the range of thick and thin lines, small detail and unique bold marks.
“White Gelly Rolls have always been my go-to pen for drawing on dark papers and envelopes. The release of a variety of tip sizes not only gives me more freedom in my work, but it also shows Sakura of America's dedication to innovating tools for the professional artist. In hand-lettering, using different size pen tips is the equivalent to choosing a different size type in a computer design program. The smaller tips allow me to draw very small and intricate letters and details, while the larger tips give me more space to draw at a larger scale. Now I can use White Gelly Rolls in the same way I use my set of Pigma Micron pens in creating dynamic and beautiful compositions!”

Write On has begun! Write_On is a mission driven campaign to promote joy, creativity, expression, and connection through hand-written correspondence. Inspired by Egg Press founder Tess Darrow’s challenge to write a letter daily, the campaign launched in 2014 with the entire staff of Egg Press and Hello!Lucky challenging themselves, friends, families, and fans to write 30 letters in 30 days during April, National Letterwriting Month.
We kicked off the month at Ritual Coffee in San Francisco with an evening of letter writing with Gelly Roll pens and Write On kits. Here are some moments from the event.
