I get asked lots of questions about my favourite stationery supplies, so I thought it was about time I created a blog post all about them. I already have full details of my journal setup which can be found here that shows you my Travelers Notebook and all of the inserts that I use. So, now onto my favourite stationery supplies that I use in my bullet journal pages.
You can click on any of the description headers below to be taken directly to the products. I don’t earn commission on these products, though some of them were sent to me free of charge to try out. I only feature products that I genuinely enjoy using and hope you will like them too.
Staedtler Pigment Liners: I love these pens and use them on nearly every page of my bullet journal. One of the reasons I enjoy using them so much is that they are waterproof, which means I can add watercolour over the top with no risk of them running. They also dry very quickly so I don’t have any problems with smudging.
Staedtler Triplus Broadliners: These are quite new to the market and as the name suggests, much thicker than the fineliners. Staedtler sent me some to try out and I am really enjoying using them. They are bright and bold, with the usual quality you would expect from Staedtler.
Tombow Brush Pens: I love these for lettering, colouring and watercolour effect and I really enjoy using the pastel colours.
Kuretake Zig Clean Color Real Brush Pens: These are a new find for me and now something I use every day. They are bright vibrant pens that blend really well with water. I use them in my daily journal for a bright watercolour effect. They are pretty pricey, but you can buy them individually to see if they are something you like. A little ink from these pens goes a long way, so I would anticipate them lasting a long time.
Start Bay Notebooks Stationery Caddy: This is on my desk every day, with a selection of pigment liners, highlighters, washi tape and paper clips. It’s easy to find what I’m looking for and of course, matches my Travelers Notebook!
Zebra Mildliners: Well, who doesn’t love the pastel highlighters with both broad and fine tips?
Tombow Fudenosuke Brush Pen: Now don’t ask me to pronounce these, but they are great! Perfect for creating great faux calligraphy, available in soft and harder tips.
Pilot Iroshizuku Ink: I am such a fan of this ink! The range of colours available is amazing, the bottles are like works of art and the ink flows beautifully. I treat myself to a new colour a couple of times a year.
TWSBI Diamond 580AL Fountain Pen: I really enjoy the clear barrel, so I can easily tell when I need to refill the ink. I have an extra fine nib and the pen writes exceptionally well. I couldn’t find the pink edition that I have, so I’ve included the link to the gorgeous new turquoise edition. I don’t need it, I don’t need it!!!
You can of course use any pen, on any paper, but just in case you were thinking about adding to your supplies, I hope you found this useful as a quick guide to my favourite and most used stationery. If you want to see the stationery in action, please check out my Instagram account, where I often share my pages, next to the supplies that I have used.
I will very soon be sharing with you my favourite sticker and washi supply shops on Etsy….with discount codes! Oh yay!
I hope you have a lovely week and if you have any questions about these products, please feel free to ask them below.
