The 5 Best Pens for Planning
Comfort and functionality are key when selecting a pen for planning purposes. We’ve selected five of our favorites that make writing an experience during planning.
This pen’s barrel is chunky with a soft, oh-so-comfortable grip. The design does not trade comfort over functionality, as the writing experience is buttery smooth and the ink is extremely fast-drying. As a left- handed user, it’s my go-to.
If you’re a fan of transparent planning supplies (who isn’t?), the Uni Pen Marking Pen is essential. Write on your dividers, take notes on transparent page flags, or mark your washi tape. The oil-based ink makes this pen incredibly multifunctional, and it will quickly make itself a staple in your planning kit.
For those that need the functionality of a pencil while maintaining the permanence of a pen. The Erasable Gel Pen is great for tentative planners— - those that plan before committing to a spread, those that sketch, and those that test concepts in their planner. (Or those that are like me, and get a bit messy while writing!)
Another pen featuring a comfortable grip—this pen’s writing is incredibly smooth. Not only is the ink beautiful, the Pentel Energel Infree Gel Pens are just plain addicting to write with! This pen is a favorite among Cloth & Paper, and we highly recommend it to anyone that loves to write.
One look at the Jewel Box Pens and you realize that they really do resemble a crown jewel. The silvery accents and beautifully brilliant colors make this pen our recommended color option. When you need to add fun or color to your planning, reach for one of these.
