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.
