Wite-Out Vs. Correction Tape Vs. Correction Pens by gracej
How do you choose which correction fluid or tape to buy? I tested them out today and found that the Bic Wite-Out Correction Tape is = to the Tombow Mini Mono Correction Tape. Both require concentration to make a straight line and both can bubble up if you are not careful. They are the same width and the same whiteish color. Ultimately, I like the Tombow brand because the design is so cool. I love the mini gears and the clear case. It’s small and would be easy to have around.
I also tried out the Bic Wite-Out Correction Pen to compare it against the correction tape. The pen is very juicy and I think it looks less professional than the correction tape. But it does provide more coverage than the correction tape. Correction pens are better for bigger areas and correction tape is better for in-line text.
I think it also depends on what you are more comfortable using. My hands always shake and get stressed when I’m trying to squeeze and write with that correction pen. Correction tape seems a little easier to control.
One great benefit of correction tape over correction pens is that you can write over it almost immediately. I discovered you could use almost any type of pen to write over it but my Bic Round Stic Pen handled it best and it doesn’t smear like all the other pens do. Even pencil works! Writing over the correction fluid is a little lumpy.
What type of correction fluid/tape do you use? Do you have any tricks? Like how you get your correction pen tip clean? Mine used to dot perfect circles and now they are lumpy.
