Today I’m sharing with you a recent lettering supplies and stationery haul with reviews. The lettering supplies haul includes brush pens, fine liners, stationery products, notebooks, and embossing supplies!
I have all the products linked if you wanted to make your own purchase. Sometimes affiliate links have been used – it costs no more to you, but helps keep my own pen collection going strong. You don’t have to use them, but thank you for those that do!💖
Watch the demo video to see me test all of these hand lettering supplies👇
Tombow Twin Tone Markers
The Tombow Twin Tone Markers are a repurchase for me. I currently have the pastel set and was so surprised about how much I loved them so I decided to get them in bright, too. These markers have two sides and I prefer to use the thicker felt tip for my hand lettering.
I was skeptical that I’d like the brights pack because I tend to gravitate towards more muted colors but I’ll definitely be using these colors a lot more – I am in love with the pinks and purples!
Paper Mate Fairs
The Paper Mate Fairs are also a repurchase for me and surprise, surprise I have a pastel colored pack🤭 I decided to purchase the smaller pack as there were so many reviews of others who has received the larger pack order with many of the pens dried out!
These have a similar feel to the Tombow Twin Tone markers. They do feel like they have stronger, firmer tips and I’m not afraid to push a little harder, whereas I feel like the Tombow markers might fray.
My next purchase was the ColorIn Markers. I purchased a brights and pastels pack because I already had a naturals set. I always get tons of questions when I use my ColorIn Markers so I thought this would be a good test for the other colors, too.
Some of the colors in the pastel pack are super light and they tend to have a washed out look that makes them hard to see but there are also some really pretty pastel colors in the set.
The brights set is absolutely stunning and highly pigmented. The markers don’t have a big tip but they are flexible so you’re able to get a thick downstroke and a thin upstroke. If you’re a beginner, they can be challenging to use but with some practice you’ll get used to the flexible tip.
The Sharpie Stained markers I purchased are actually fabric markers but I’ve seen many people use them for lettering. It took me a while to get them because I had to wait for a cheaper deal but since trying them I have to say that they are one of my favorite markers! 🎉
They are fabric markers so you’ll need to wait for your pages to dry a bit. The tips of these markers are the perfect length with the right amount of flexibility and lots pigmented ink.
I will DEFINITELY be using these a lot more!
Sharpie Brush Pens
Next up are the Sharpie Brush Pens that have a really unique tip that is flexible while still being really thin. I absolutely love the colors, too. Although the packaging makes them look like primary colors, the mint and salmon colored pens are really pretty.
Kelly Creates Jewel Brush
I decided to try the Kelly Creates Jewel Brush pens which were so pigmented and felt like too much ink comes out while lettering. These metallic colors are pretty but unfortunately too much ink means gives that frayed look.
Kelly Creates Small Brush
The next Kelly Creates Small Brush markers I tried were a little better and are similar to the Pental Touch Pens. They come in some pretty colors. Unfortunately one of the markers looked like it had some sort of fuzz on them straight out of the pack – not sure what that’s about! But I think that beginners will really love these pens because of the small, easy to use tip.
Winsor & Newton Watercolor Markers
The Winsor and Newton Watercolor Markers were another repurchase that everyone keeps telling me that I shouldn’t be using for hand lettering🙈 I personally feel that the regular ones aren’t great for lettering and that you can use anything for lettering! The bullet tips on these do go flat quickly especially when you have a heavy hand like I do but I love them!
Jane Davenport Mermaid Markers
The next purchase were the Jane Davenport Mermaid Markers because of the raving reviews I’ve seen everywhere! They are watercolor water brush markers with extremely pigmented, pretty colors. Make sure to have an extra piece of paper under the one you’re using because they tend to bleed through.
The colors are seriously amazing but the brush tips and the markers themselves weren’t working for me so I decided to use them a bit differently (go ahead and watch the tutorial to have a look☝️).
There seems to be some manufactory faults with the markers as there is some leaking and little defaults so just keep that in mind before you purchase them.
Molotow Liquid Chrome Markers
The Molotow Liquid Chrome Markers are not brush pens but rather a bullet tip marker for super shiny shiver lettering. They seem to work best when you write on a surface where they don’t easily soak into it – think stone, acrylic, tiles, leafs!
Zig Scroll & Brush Embossing Pen
My next brush pen purchase is for embossing where I normally use mono line lettering or bullet tip lettering. The Zig Scroll & Brush Embossing Pens worked great but I’m not sure about the scroll on the other end because I don’t think I’ll be using it in my style of lettering.
Premium 32 Paper
The last purchase that I wanted to share is the Premium32 Paper. This is my go-to smooth paper that feels amazing for lettering. It’s inexpensive compared to other marker paper without loosing the quality.
I hope my new haul gave you some stationery inspiration and I would LOVE any recommendations for lettering supplies that you love – I might just be a little obsessed with materials 😍 Let me know in the comments below!
