aka the time I spent too much money on stationery
Let’s start with my fineliners:
Pilot Hi-Techpoint 05 in Green, Blue and Black
Staedtler Pigment Liner .5 in Black
Prismacolor Premier Fine Line Marker 05 in Green
When I picked up these fineliners my only criteria was the nib and colour. But, now that I’ve used them often enough to form an actual opinion, I love the smoothness of the Prismacolor above the Pilot. The Staedtler falls somewhere in between the two. Bleeding is not an issue with these pens but make sure the ink is dry as they are all prone to smudging.
Pointer Glitter Gel Pen (0.8) in assorted colours
Staedtler Gel Roller Classic (0.4) in Orange (this one is so old that I doubt they even make these anymore.)
Sakura Gelly Roll (08) in White
Pilot G-2 Retractable Premium Gel Ink Roller (10) in Burgundy
Pilot G-1 (0.7) in Silver and Gold
These are a must have staple for me. They help me add that pop of colour without the commitment of a marker and give juicier letters than possible with a fineliner.
My Brush Pens (which make me so happy ^_^)
Tombow Dual Brush Pens Pastel Palette
Prismacolor Premier Brush Tip Marker in Sepia
Not pictured: Studio 71 Dual Tip Marker in Denim (Shade number B4). You can see what this one looks like in the Markers photo below.
I use markers OFTEN so, despite the ridiculous price of these products where I’m from, I think they’re worth it. I get my money’s worth.
Maped Automatic Mechanical Pencil (0.5)
Faber Castell HB Pencil
Pilot Better BallPoint Stick Pen Fine (0.7) in Pink and Violet
PaperMate InkJoy Ball Point (1) in Red
I don’t think I need to explain these, do I?
Sargent Art Liquid Metals Metallic Marker (medium point) in Assorted Colours
Sharpie Fine Point Permanent Marker in Purple
Pilot Sign Pen (medium) in Black
Emraw Point Liner Liquid Highlighter in Purple (chisel tip)
Mr. Sketch Scented Marker in Assorted Colours (chisel tip)
I cannot remember the brand of the highlighter but…I mean, it’s a highlighter. Not named is the Studio 71 marker mentioned in the Brush Pens section.
Unfortunately some of the metallic markers were dry right out of the package which is really frustrating, but the ones that do work are so beautiful to look at that it ALMOST makes up for the dry ones.
Milan Triangular Ergo Grip Coloured Pencils
Meh, they do their job. I’m on the lookout for the watercolour pencils but at a price that won’t break the bank.
Are you a BuJo-er? If so, what are your staples?
