I have a serious addiction to office supplies… more specifically to pens. My husband knows that while I would appreciate flowers, pens are the way to my heart.
Not all pens are the same! If you know this, then you know what I am talking about! I wanted to share with you my favorite pens.
When I’m coloring, I love to use Gel Pens. I like the way they flow and fill the spaces. I like the way they shimmer and shine.
When I am doodling on paper or in my notebook, I love my Paper Mate Flairs. They are felt tip and don’t bleed through the paper. They are the perfect thing if you want a pen that acts like a marker.
For my Bible Journaling, I had to find a good pen that wouldn’t bleed through the thin pages of the Bible. I started off just using colored pencils, but wanted a little more.
I primarily use Sakura Pigma Micron Ink pens– they are fine tip and archival ink. They do not bleed through the pages.
I also use Sharpie Pens. They are still fine tip, but not as fine as the Sakura. They also do not bleed.
I still use colored pencils in my Bible. My favorites are Crayola Twistables.
I’m a doodler. Often when I want to make my doodles more permanent, like on these handmade cards, I go for a good old Fine Point Sharpie. These do bleed through paper.
And then there’s my planner. It took some time. I used Flairs for a while, but then I was given the Staedtler Fine Tip Marker Pens. I love them. I can write small and in lots of colors. I can color code to my heart’s content. They do not bleed through paper and are great for some coloring as well.
What are your favorite pens to use????
