Welcome back! In case you missed part one, we talked about the different types of planners available and the layouts you can choose from. If you've decided on that part, now it's time to figure out which pens are best for you!
Of course you can use regular ballpoint pens - but where's the fun in that?! As a true hoarder of writing utensils, I have a wide variety that I keep on hand. Here are the options I personally use. Keep in mind there are always other alternatives.
this is tricky because some write better than others. My personal favorites are by BIC. I use both the BIC Cristal and BIC Round Stic ballpoint pens.
This is by far my favorite pen media to use. There's just something about the smoothness of a gel pen that I love. My personal favorites are the Pilot G2 in bold point, the Paper Mate InkJoy gel pens, and the Staples Sonix.
For me, it's Staedtler all the way. They come in a great range of true colors, a fun case, and they last.
Felt-TipWhen someone says Felt-tip I immediately think of Paper Mate Flair pens. I use these pens for everything. From writing notes, planning, writing cards, etc. They're super versatile and they tend not to bleed through paper.
Sharpie Pen here because none of the listings are specific and only list it as fine point. These are another go to for how smooth they write on any and every surface.
That's it for today! Check back next week for Part 3. Do you have a favorite type or brand of pen?
