How and What are Frixion pens

So I was introduced to the Pilot frixion range by a friend and planner addict who thought they are great.  I thought what the hey they aren't very expensive I will give them a try.  I started out using the Frixion Colors range of pens because I wanted to use them in my Erin Condren planner for decorations.  These pens are like felt tip or marker pens but you can totally erase them.  I mean totally no trace, I was amazed at how well they erased.  So fast forward 6 months and I'm starting my own business and I take the opportunity to get more of the range in.  I have frixion clickers, frixion highlighters, frixion colors and frixion ball .7 pens in stock and I love them all.
