Posta Collect Pens (Japanpost)

Have you ever visited a post office in Japan?

If you haven’t, I highly recommend you drop by next time you see one. Other than the usual mail services/products, Japan’s post offices also carry a range of products called Posta Collect.

This range includes the usual mail supplies such as envelopes, stickers, tape but they also carry postcards that might be exclusive to the area, limited edition or collaboration stationery such as washi tape and glue tape and of course, pens!

I picked up 2 pens on a recent trip, the postcard pen for thin lettering in black and the postcard sign pen in black. I liked how the black white yellow packaging was simple yet attractive.

The postcard pen for thin lettering has a thickness of 0.35mm and is closest to a pigment liner. The ink dries fast but it isn’t as black as other pens.

The postcard sign pen looks exactly like the pentel sign pen and it is in fact, pentel branded, however the pen tip is a lot stiffer than the touch sign pen which you can see below. The ink is similar to the postcard pen.

As an example, I’ve compared the 2 pens with some other common writing/drawing pens below.

I used a postcard from muji and I found that some of the other pens bled a bit into the paper but the Posta Collect pens did not.

To sum up, I found them enjoyable to write with, they’re perfectly suited for postcards and the ink looks like it would fade-proof. However those qualities mean that the ink is not as black which might bother some people so definitely take that into account.

Have you seen the merchandise from Japan Post before? Would you go have a look next time?
