My Favourite Pens

As I mentioned in my Journaling Wishlist post, I love pens, and I have as long as I can remember. I used to really be into rollerball pens, but for the past few years I’ve been all about the felt-tip. Though you’ll see on this list of my favourite pens that there are some gel and rollerballs on there.

Now I have a lot of different favourite types of pen. I like each type for a different purpose, though I’m not really sure why. Maybe there’s a good reason for it, but I don’t know what it is. I just like what I like. So if you love pens as much as I do and want to know which are my favourites and for what, keep on reading!

SHARPIE PEN

My Favourite Pens

This might be my absolute favourite pen of the past few years. I use it in my long-form journaling and my planners and whenever I just need a good pen for something. It’s a felt tip pen with a fine point, though I do find that the tip wears down quite quickly, so I go through these pens a lot.

FABER-CASTELL PITT ARTIST PENS

My Favourite Pens

These are the pens I use in my bullet journal, in a variety of sizes. I’d heard good things about these pens for bullet journaling, in that they don’t bleed through and they don’t smear when you highlight over them, and I already had a couple from ages ago, so that’s what I went with. And I really like them.

PIGMA MICRON PENS

My Favourite Pens

I use these pens in a wide array of sizes for my drawings. I like the range in sizes and how they don’t smudge when I erase my pencil underneath, or when I colour over them with my Copic markers. They are what I’ve been using for Inktober over on Instagram.

PAPERMATE FLAIR PENS

My Favourite Pens

These are also felt-tip pens with a medium tip, so they are a bit thicker than the Sharpie Pen, but they come in a huge selection of colours. I have the basic colours and the tropical colours, but I really want the Candy Pop colours, as I mentioned before. I like these for making colourful notes and for adult colouring books.

MUJI GEL PENS

My Favourite Pens

Not a felt-tip, I know! But these pens come in such cute colours and different tip sizes, and I like them for some random things, like pre-planning on tiny Muji sticky notes or brain-dumping in my traveler’s notebook.

BAN-DŌ PENS

My Favourite Pens

Again, not a felt-tip, but I don’t really use these rollerball pens for writing. Mostly they are just super adorable and I like including them in photos. That being said, if I need a pen in a pinch, I will use them.
