The new school year is almost here!

It’s hard to believe summer is coming to an end, but here at GelWriter we are gearing up to make this year the best yet. A new school year holds so much promise—new classes, new friends, and of course new school supplies!

GelWriter gel pens are perfect for students and teachers to use in the classroom and at home, for everything from studying to reducing stress. In this week’s blog, we bring you some of our favorite ways to get the school year off to a great (and colorful!) start.

Binders and Book Covers

What’s better than new school supplies? New school supplies that you can color! Printable binder covers let you express your artistic side and stay organized at the same time. Need to cover your textbooks? Use plain paper that you can personalize with your own drawings and artwork—gel pens will write on almost any paper surface!

Coloring Books

Today’s homework: coloring!  Adults everywhere have gone crazy for coloring as a way to reduce stress—and guess what? It works for students, too! It can be especially difficult for younger students to get back into the routine of school and homework after summer break, but coloring is a great way to decompress. Giving kids a few minutes of coloring or doodling time before they start their homework can help them focus and stay engaged.

College students have also discovered the stress-reducing benefits of coloring during midterms and finals—we say coloring books should be required reading!

Study Skills

Get the new school year off to a great start with a few colorful study skills—from note-taking to flashcards, GelWriters are perfect for back-to-school. Studies show that taking notes by hand, drawing, and even doodling while taking notes can improve focus and memory retention. With so many colors to choose from, gel pens make it easy to color-code notes and study guides.
