Correction supplies are used to correct pen or ink errors made on paper. The need for correcting mistakes made during writing has been around for as long as writing itself.
While erasers worked well for pencil marks, they did little to remove mistakes made with a fountain pen, type-writer, or ballpoint pen. This lead to the development of additional correction supplies that include corrector pens, correction tape and correction fluid.
The following are the two main types of correction pens
Ink eradicators - Erase washable fountain pen ink, as well as ink from certain other pens; and correction pens that write a line of correction fluid, like Tipp-Ex.
Correction pens - A more convenient way of putting down correction fluid, and can be more accurate than a bottle of Tipp-Ex or Liquid Paper. You will be able to apply a thin layer of opaque white paint over the error, which should be almost invisible on white paper.
Thanks to correction tape, you can quickly adjust the document without having to reprint it. You just simply roll the correction tape over the corresponding part of the document and then make your corrections. To correct text, you can select a correction tape dispenser that matches the width of the font size and the line height. Then you only have to roll over the text once to cover the entire line.
This can be applied to paper to cover up errors such as those made by a pen or typewriter. The fluid is designed to dry very quickly when exposed to air, allowing you to write or type over it within a minute or so after it is applied.
Before the development of correction fluid, when writing or typing errors were made, an entire document might have to be discarded if the error could not be covered up or erased.
Correction fluid cut down dramatically on waste and headaches for weary secretaries, and it has become an ever-present feature in offices as a result. By convention, this fluid is not used on formal correspondence, because some people feel that it looks a bit tacky. If an error is made in an official document, the document will typically be reprinted without the error.
