precise v5

i get lots of questions about what kinds of pens i use, so i thought i’d make a post for convenience :’’) the x’s are links to posts where i’ve used the pen.

  • sakura pigma micron 01 (0.25mm) - i usually don’t like using pens with tips smaller than 0.5mm since i feel like i’m scratching the paper with them, but microns are felt tip so i can deal with it (heh). i like using this pen for when i have to cramp a lot of information in a small space. (x)
  • pilot precise v5 (0.5mm) - I LOVE THESE PENS!! A+ ink flow, crisp lines, and a v smooth writing experience. it takes a while for the ink to dry sometimes, so i use these mostly for when i’m rewriting notes instead of in-class notes. (x, x, x, x, x)
  • muji gel ink ballpoint (0.5mm) - i’m gonna be honest, i bought my first pack of muji pens about a month after i started my studyblr because everyone had them. but!! for all the hype they get, they are nice pens. v smooth & lots of color options!! my only qualms are that they run out of ink pretty fast and the ink tends to smear if you highlight over it. (x, x, x)
  • pentel rsvp fine (0.7mm) - my go-to pen for in-class notes! the ink doesn’t smear very much, which is excellent because i’m one of those people that writes everything down (oops). definitely not the best pen ever, but it does its job well. ALSO it has a grip which makes it v comfortable to write with!! (i started using it when i was making this review sheet, except it ran out of ink halfway through and i switched to using a bic cristal pen)
  • paper mate inkjoy 100 (1.0mm) - my other in-class notes pen! i use it less than the rsvp because it likes to transfer onto my hand more, but the ink is darker and it’s a wider pen. i’ll usually use it when i have to fill up more space and don’t want to write as much heh :^) (x, x)
  • uniball signo um-153 (1.0mm) - v nice if you’re looking for a pen that writes boldly and thickly!! i bought this pen not too long ago, so i haven’t written with it that much yet, but i’ll probably use it for headings or something like that (x)

FUN FACT these are all capped pens… i stay away from retractable pens because i’m one of those people that clicks them constantly if i have one in my hands (ㅠᴗㅠ)

I get asks about what kind of pens I use for my bujo. So here is literally every pen/markers I use and own.

• Pilot V5 Precise Rolling Ball •
Great for everyday use. I use it during lectures as well for note-taking - although it does take a while to set and if you’re not exactly careful, you’ll get smudges. But still my fave.

• Faber-Castell PITT Calligraphy Pen •
Mainly for titles. Great for those who are just beginning to venture into calligraphy. I actually just talked my best friend into buying one because she wants to get into bullet journaling.

• Staedtler Permanent Lumocolor S •
I use this for writing on washi tape because everything else tends to rub off. It’s great for little details.

• Manuscript CalliCreative Italic in Silver •
Used for designs and accents. I also use this for dark washi tapes because I haven’t found a white pen that works over dark washi. Yet.

• Faber-Castell PITT Artist Pen •
This is actually my first experience with brush pens and I. Love. It! I only have one color so far, Medium Skin 116, but I will be buying more!

• Ad Markers •
I have soooo much of these markers. (As you can see in the red box.) They’re amazing for drawing and coloring but the biggest set-back (for me) is that they bleed right through the page. No matter how high quality the paper is.

• Staedtler Triplus Fineliner 0.3mm •
I recently just got these and I’m already in love with them! They write so nicely and smoothly - it’s a complete dream. I was actually very reluctant to buy these but after seeing Bilan’s (@studyfulltime) bujo spreads, I was convinced.

So yeah… There you go guys. Let me know if you have any more questions. I’m friendly 😊.

Module 4 is setting for my English lit class. I tried to make my notes look pretty, I LOVE my staedler fine liners! And I use the precision v5 pen by pilot. It’s so nice :P. Pretty productive day again :) next up is sociology revision then it’s bedtime for me 😘

Now that I actually have some color and content in my bullet journal, I wanted to post some pictures. It’s still a work in progress; I ordered some new pens a few days ago and I think I’m gonna start color coding my classwork once they come in. I’m really proud of what I have so far though!

I’m using a large squared Moleskine journal and Pilot Precise V5 pens.
