How To Choose A Good Doodling Pen
Let’s chat about the quest for the perfect doodling pen. It’s a journey, much like Bullet Journaling itself, filled with personal preferences and unique needs. You see, we all doodle differently, and that means different pen characteristics will matter more to some than others.
Perhaps you’re someone who can’t compromise on permanent ink, or maybe you’re an urban sketcher braving chilly temps. Possibly, you need to apply watercolor swiftly over your lines, or you have some health issues and find applying pressure a bit tricky.
Or, you simply might be after a specific attribute in your pen.
Is it the sleek, aerodynamic design you crave? A lightweight metal construction? A pen that defies gravity and writes upside down? Or are you a fountain pen connoisseur, seeking a particular cartridge type?
And let’s not forget the color enthusiasts among us, always on the hunt for the perfect shade of pink, magenta, red, or scarlet. Whatever your preferences, you deserve a doodling pen that’s truly amazing.
So, let’s dive into what you should consider before making your choice.
The Point: A jamming pen point is no one’s friend, unless of course, you’re aiming for a distressed look. And let’s not forget, point sizes vary.
The Ink: Few things frustrate a doodler more than smudged ink. One tiny smear can wreak havoc on your masterpiece. So, we’ll explore which pens are smudge-prone and which aren’t.
Ink Flow: Nothing interrupts the creative flow quite like ink that stops and starts. Having to trace over lines is a doodler’s pet peeve. It rarely looks neat or intentional. Therefore, you want a pen with steady ink flow, ensuring your lines remain unbroken and your creativity flows uninterrupted.
So, let’s embark on this journey together, and find the doodling pen that’s just right for you!
