But I thought I’d share this rough version of my Bullet Journal Supplies page anyways, so that if you’re curious about what I use or have on my wishlist you can read about it here… Hoping to be able to finish the page soon :)
When it comes to bullet journaling there’s no wrong or right way to do it. You make it your own. Some start with an old notebook they find in their stacks. Others go out and buy a whole new setup with notebook, pens, calligraphy nibs, washi tape and so on. This page will give you tips on bullet journal supplies that you might want to check out. And being the #plannernerd that I am, I’m going to share my current favorites (+ what’s on my wish list).
I use a Leuchtturm1917 – Dotted A5 for my day-to-day stuff. I love the dotted version as it helps me keep everything straight, but it’s not visually “overwhelming” like a normal square or lined version would be to me.
I also got a Leuchtturm1917 – Dotted Master A4 (hard cover) for my project related stuff. So anything regarding my blog and Etsy store will go in here. I wanted a bigger version so I’d have enough space for e.g. my editorial calendar, my traffic tracking and so on. It really is a perfect size to fit that all in.
Another notebook that I see many use is the Moleskin. I have a Moleskine – Plain A5 that I bought a long time ago when I didn’t know there were dotted versions (argh). But of course Moleskin also comes with dotted versions. They also have watercolor notebooks which has been on my wish list for a while.
My absolute favorite pen for writing (at the moment) is the Uni Pin pens. They don’t smudge, they don’t bleed through and they’re thin enough to write small but not be too thin in the lines.
Another favorite is the Pilot FriXion, Extra Fine Point pens. This pen is amazing! It’s a gel pen but you can erase what you’ve written or doodled! There’s a rubber thingy at the end of the pen that you erase with, just like you would with a normal eraser. I have them in a lot of colors and in different sizes. My favorite is the small one (0.5) but I also have the 0.7 sizes.
For my faux calligraphy I often use my Faber-Castell Fibre-tip pen ECCO PIGMENT 0.4. It makes it faster to “fill out” the letters as the nib is a bit thicker. But it’s still small enough so that I can be precise with where I color.
For coloring I have a whole array of pens although I use them sparsely :) I use the Stabilo 88 quite a lot. Their tips are small enough to make precision coloring and not color outside the lines + they don’t bleed through. Plus I love that they have bright colors without being glossy.
TomBow’s dual brush pens are versatile, they have a soft brush tip that you can get both broader and finer lines with. And they also have a fine tip for smaller lines. It’s pretty cool because you can blend colors together with a blender pen as well.
I have a straight pen holder, a few different nibs and black calligraphy ink. I will share more information further on as I’m not sure of the name or brand of the products.
As I mentinoned in the Coloring section, I use my TomBow’s dual brush pens both for coloring and brush lettering. The brush tip is quite soft so you can mix beautiful thin lines with upstrokes and thick lines with downstrokes.
FaberCastell also have brush pens. I have a PITT artist pen B where B stands for Brush tip. It is quite stiff compared to the TomBow. FaberCastell also have a softer tip, the PITT artist pen SB where SB stands for Soft Brush tip. This one is on my wish list.
