I’ve used both the Moleskine Large and Leuchtturm 1917 A5 journals. I really like the dotted pages best as they give me guidance, but allow me to also be creative (when I feel like it!). The Leuchtturm 1917 is a bit larger and has thicker paper than the Moleskine. I like them both, but the Leuchtturm allows me to use a larger variety of pens since the thicker pages limit the bleed on ink-heavy pens.
I belong to a bunch of Facebook groups for bullet journal fans, and these Zebra Mildliners kept popping up again and again. I thought it was just hype. Until a friend brought them back for me when she went on a trip to the US and I am IN LOVE! They are double sided, so I often use the thin-tipped side to make headers or design my journal pages. They were an amazing addition to my pencil case.
When I started bullet journaling, I started seeing all types of amazing calligraphy and bounce lettering that I loved and wanted to learn how to do. Most of the people that really know what they are doing, graduate onto Tombow brush pens. Since I wasn’t ready to invest in those yet, I went the less expensive route, on the many suggestions of brush calligraphy pros, and got me some Crayola Supertips. They do not disappoint. I still need to practice though.
These Pentel Fude Sign Pens came to my attention by hand.lettered.and.loved on Instagram. They aren’t as difficult to learn to use as a brush pen and the results are amazing! I really love these pens!
The Staedtler Triplus Fineliners were the first pens that I used when I started my bullet journal journey. They allowed me to practice doing faux-calligraphy with a great final result. They don’t bleed through the Moleskine paper and they come in a ton of great colours.
I first discovered the Frixion pens when I got the Rocketwave microwaveable notebook through Kickstarter when it was first launched a few years ago. It came with a Frixion 0.7 pen and I loved it (the notebook was great, but the pen rocked my world!)! When they came out with the clicker (I always prefer a clicker to a cap!), and then a finer point pen, I never looked back. I make a lot of changes and mistakes in my journal. This keeps me calmer. All mistakes can be corrected. Good life lessons through writing instruments.
I always keep my eyes open for new pens and markers, so you may see some new items when you come back next time!
