Today’s National Stationery Week post is a look at my favourite pens and pencils. In addition, I wanted to share with you that the NatStatWeek folks have teamed up with Staedtler to run a competition to win a big stationery bundle so be sure to check that out too!
So I couldn’t have a pen and pencil post without mentioning my latest pencils in the shop. I want to create even more positive slogan pencils – so do let me know if there are any phrases or colours you’d like to see. Some pencils you don’t want to miss are these monochrome beauties from indie planner company Hello Day . The gold tips make them super luxurious and they come with a chic sleeve too.
Also from the Hello Day collections is this gold hexagon pen. I can’t resist metallic pens – they just feel super special! I’ve also been informed that Hello Day will be releasing Academic planners for pre-orders very soon! Don’t worry I’ll be sure to give you a full review 🙂 Next up is the Uni Ball Signo Gel Rollerball Pens in the Angelic Pastel Colours. These guys are gel pens, but they have a kind of paint like finish. This makes the colours super pigmented (see the rainbow in the background below!). The Posca Paint Pens are a great craft pen for so many surfaces! They use a water-basked pigment ink to write on metal, glass, plastic, stone, fabric, you name it. I made this decorated pen pot using mine and I love to use them on our meal planning chalkboards at home. Another favourite shop for metallic luxury pens is kikki.K. Their pens are often refillable too and they release new collections each season. I love going in store to kikki.K because everything they sell looks so pretty up close! For lettering and colouring, I love using the Paper Mate Flair pens – their colour selections are just awesome! I keep mine in this multi layer pen storage case which zips up and stores TONS of pens. It even fits the Tombow Dual Brush pens which are favourites of mine too.
So there you have it, all my faves in one place! I’d love to hear if you have any recommendations for me to try – I can’t be done in adding to my pen collection right?! I’ll be back tomorrow with a peek at some indie stationery finds from around the world!
