Just letting you know that you actually linked the version with the standard tip, not the brush tip.

Here’s the brush tip :)

This is for Stabilo pens to fit in a Cricut Maker, which has the same nib (0.4mm) as the standard Cricut pens at a much lower price.

Here is the list of gear. It is meant for both myself and my wife, so I doubled up in some places. (Links where I have them)

u/JAKEx0 · 13 pointsr/pens
  1. Baron Fig Squire Click Ballpoint Pen (Charcoal)
    • originally bought a Squire, but I didn't like the rollerball cartridge
  2. Tactile Turn Stainless Steel Shaker
    • hefty pen, feels very good in the hand
  3. Tactile Turn Anodized Aluminum Shaker (Black)

    • the clickie button has a handy indicator on top to show when the pen is retracted or not
  5. Fisher Zero Gravity Space Pen (Matte Black)
    • my favorite space pen, very solid click, good clip, and the grip section has a slight 3 sided shape to it
  6. Fisher Cap-O-Matic Space Pen (Matte Black)
    • my least favorite space pen, slim but hate the click action and the clip
  7. Fisher Bullet Space Pen (Matte Black) (with 1/4" rubber grommet for pocket friction
    • perfect for EDC pocket carry, the rubber grommet keeps it from slipping out when sitting down
  8. Makerset Field Pen Compact (Brass)

  9. Makerset Field Pen Compact (Stainless)
    • these are cute little pens, very smooth click action

  14. Pilot G2 07 Fine (Black)
    • can't beat a classic G2, need to get the mini version
u/The_edref · 13 pointsr/UniUK

Speakers will make your life so much better. I'd recommend getting a shower speaker too, your flatmates will love you.

A door stop is the right answer.

If you get a memory foam mattress topper your life will be so much better. It makes any bed amazing, and, although they aren't particularly cheap, they can last a very long time. I have this one

Get some good quality pens and books of paper. You don't want the refil pads as they always fall apart sooner or later, get some which have metal binding on one side. For pens I always got a box of these or these. They make the vast amounts of notes you need to take much better.

Don't buy the recommended reading until you have checked how many copies the library has. There's a good chance you'll be able to read them enough without paying for them, or search Bookname.pdf into google and it will probably be there.

Pint glasses are very useful things to have, but I found it added a nice touch to my flat if they were all borrowed from pubs.

get a multipack of playing cards on the cheap from amazon. You'll probably get through a fair few packs in first year. Some poker chips were a nice thing to own as well. In 3rd year I got Cards Against humanity as well, and it is a very good game for predrinks

Get minimum 1 good frying pan, 1 good saucepan, a good wooden chopping board, a good chefs knife, a baking sheet, and a colander.

Get a bottle opener like this one and you will have hours of fun pinging the caps at people

I didn't use mine much in 1st year, but all the other years of uni my bike was a great thing to have. It allows you to shop further away (so cheaper) and reduces your reliance on public transport. It also means you can get out of your area of the city occasionally, which is nice.

A french press means you can make a whole pot of great coffee for your flatmates when you are all getting up after a heavy night, at which point they might crown you or start worshiping you or some shit

These marker/pens are really nice and much cheaper on Amazon than in a store

Also I got a silk pillowcase, it's fantastic

And these boots are pretty nice

u/Mhoram_antiray · 8 pointsr/ArtFundamentals

I am not sure if they are global or not, but Stabilo work fine too. I think they are mainly German, but I wouldn't know

Give either a try I'd say. They don't exactly break the bank ;)

u/966354 · 7 pointsr/bulletjournal

Looks like it's the Pentel Fude Touch. I was able to find it by googling SES15C.

I think this is the same pen and I hope it is because I just ordered one!

Here's the amazon smile link for the same pen in violet

Edit: Changed both links to amazon smile links :)

I also want to emphasize that this was how I got through a science undergrad degree too.

I would go to the basement of the library since it was so quiet, and I wouldn't leave until everything I had to do was done.

OP, I also want to mention that you absolutely have to figure out a method of studying that works for you. For me, I got a huge roll of colored pens for note taking. I heavily color coded my notes which not only kept me engaged in studying, it was also a really great way for me to organize the information in a way that made sense to me. (Here's the pens that worked so well for me, Stabilo Point 88 Fineliner Pens, 0.4 mm - 25-Color Rollercase Set

u/DarkDubzs · 6 pointsr/pens

I actually use the Stainless Steel Fine tip Sharpie pen. I got it a couple days ago and instantly couldnt believe how smooth it was. It also didnt bleed through my cheap notebook paper either at all. I dont know what they are doing to make the ink and tip this dark, smooth, and not bleed through. Now my daily pen for notes and work. Only thing is that after a full day of use, the tip has gotten less smooth feeling, but I still prefer it way over any rollerball pen ive used.

u/Shen_an_igator · 5 pointsr/ArtFundamentals

In my experience, this would suggest you have muscle imbalances. Going by the fact that you do web-design, you are probably sitting in front of your desk all day, right? If you're not supplementing your work with some form of sport, you will most likely have muscle imbalances, as well as generally weak muscles.

This means you lack the ability to support your weight with your upper and lower backmuscles, which leads to you putting a lot of weight on your support arm. Which, as you correctly said, causes pain over time. If not addressed, you will probably shorten your tendons (and muscles, but I am not quite sure right now... way too tired) over time, resulting in permanent back pain, unless sitting in very comfy chairs and leaning back in your preferred posture. And that posture will be shite. Been there, done that, fuck all about it.

So, if you aren't big on lifting and all that, I'd suggest you start doing gymnastics at least and stretching every day. For muscle growth, go with planks and other bodyweight exercises, no need to pay for a gym. Google them, there's literally shittons of content out there.

If you are actually fit and your body isn't the issue... well... uh.... don't lean so much on your support arm? There isn't really anything else you could do to fix it. You know the issue, the fix is simple. Unless your desk is too low/high. In that case, you need a new desk.

I am not sure where the smudges are coming from, honestly. I use printerpaper (100g because it feels nice) but haven't had issues with standard 80g paper either. Try some other brands maybe. It might also be the pen. Personally, I use Stabilo pens (holy shit they're like thrice the price in the USA) and they don't smudge at all, even when I tested their smudginess. They last forever, too.

Hope I could help a little.

u/icewood91 · 5 pointsr/pics

If you're writing this much, the good pens are worth it. I'm a medical student as well and literally everyone has something like this. Or they use some sort of ipad/surface to take notes on.

u/Nheea · 5 pointsr/Coloring

No problem, my pleasure!

This is the set I have from Staedtler. I don't know them to have bigger sets for the metallic ones.

There's also this set of fineliners from Staedtler, but they have such a tiny point, they're only god for small details honestly.

And for Posca there's also this huge set, but I honestly think this is an overkill.

Depending on where you are from, I think you can also go to a local library and see f they have an open stock for any of these markers and just buy whatever you like after testing them...

You can also try the even more expensive sets, but honestly, I don't think they're worth it.

Copic markers

Another too expensive set of markers: Chameleon

Some of my friends bought these too: Tombow dualbrush

Posca and Staedtler have the most affordable and awesome markers though.

u/lurkinallday23 · 4 pointsr/Coloring

I recently purchased these, and they are excellent.

Staedtler Triplus Fineliner

I bought the smaller pack at Michaels Arts and Crafts, but I wish I had waited and looked for them on Amazon, they are a lot more affordable there than they were at the craft store.

u/botbaccalord · 4 pointsr/cromch

I believe OP’s pens are the same ones my friend has - they’re iBayam fine line pens. They don’t usually bleed through pages/journals for me.

here’s a link i found if you want them - iBayam Fine Line Pens

u/DoctorsSong · 4 pointsr/toptalent

YES! YES! YES! The Bullet Journal Method was created by Ryder Carroll who has ADHD.

My favorite produts:

Scrivwell Dot Matrix Notebook It's $12 (USD) and has 100gsm (aka thick) paper so that ghosting (where you see the what you've written on the other page) is minimal and bleeding (where your ink or markers soak through to the next page) is non-existent.

Steadler Triplus Fineliners Hands down the best pens I have used for my journal.

Crayola Super Tip Markers I use these instead of Tombrow Brush Pens because they are cheap and give me similar results.

Correction Tape No brand preference. It's a non liquid white-out that helps when you make mistakes, and you will make mistakes.

u/MinuteCheesecake · 4 pointsr/college

Skip the high-lighters! Don't get them used to using them. Studies have been shown (and its mostly self evident) that high lighting things doesn't help you retain or understand the content.


Get some really good pens instead. Or this. Makes writing more enjoyable and less painful.

u/AWildRisuAppeared · 4 pointsr/TrollXChromosomes

Triplus Fineliner all day erryday. They're even finer - .3 mm. I discovered them when I was taking Japanese classes when I was in college the first time. Beautiful. I got them because they're great for writing kanji in small notebooks, but I use them all the time. And so many colors! I like to color code my notes (and pretty much everything else) so they're perfect.

u/PuppiesGoMeow · 4 pointsr/EDC

An elegant fountain pen edc would be the Lamy Safari

As for a normal pen I’d recommend the Zebra Sarasa

And finally for a durable pen that can write on all surfaces the well-known Stainless Steel Sharpie

u/fortunatemisfortune · 4 pointsr/XWingTMG

They don't pick up any of the paint off the model and any designs you draw on you just go over in ardcoat afterwards and it seals the ink.

u/Nyaniko-tan · 4 pointsr/PenmanshipPorn

I'm glad I was able to give you some inspiration! Here are the pens I use:

u/bitchesonthescene · 4 pointsr/breakingmom

As someone who wishes she could be artistic but totally isn't, I love coloring books. These pens have been my favorite for coloring so far. The time just flies by for me and it is very relaxing.

u/lermp · 3 pointsr/gifs

And yet a pen is still a pen even when it's a ball point, gel, or a "felt-tip fineliner" pen...

> Staedtler Triplus Fineliner Pens 10 color Pack

u/VioletVenable · 3 pointsr/blogsnark

That occurred to me after the fact – though maybe a chocolates/book of short stories/quality-but-not-froufrou foot creme sort of goody bag would work?

I’ve no idea if nursing school involves writing anything by hand these days, but maybe a fun set of colored pens, like the Staedtler Triplus Fineliners.

u/mines_bigger · 3 pointsr/books

These. Seriously, they almost never bleed, they mark very crisply, and they don't smudge. I have a set and the notes I've taken with them remain hands-down the most legible of any I've ever taken.

u/FasterThanJaws · 3 pointsr/EDC

Check out Sharpie Pens, might just be the perfect middle ground for you. They won't bleed through paper and they're pretty decent for marking harder surfaces.

u/sg3niner · 3 pointsr/mapmaking

Oh OK, I like the idea of canals, that's actually really cool. Ummm, colored pencils would look really nice, but might smudge. I usually go with a set of Stabilo art markers. Either way, get something with a large range, so you can shade a lot.

This is what I use personally, although you should maybe buy a single pen or pencil to see how you like them before shelling out for anything big. Most art shops sell singles.

u/HoshiSama94 · 3 pointsr/Paladins

i use this

u/Marslettuce · 3 pointsr/ArtFundamentals

These are the ones I used for the mosquito, and these are the ones I've been using more recently.

I used the brush pen to do some of the texturing on the bee. It made shading it in way less tedious than if I'd done it with a 0.8. I like the texture it gave, too.

u/alltheyarnthings · 3 pointsr/bulletjournal

How thick of a marker are you wanting?

If you like thinner markers, I recommend the (Staedtler Triplus Fineliners)[] as they are good quality, lasted me a long time, and relatively cheap. I have no suggestions for thicker markers though because my next purchase was Tombows, which are quite pricey, but worth it to me.

u/shelldog · 3 pointsr/PenmanshipPorn

Sharpie pens are the best. I write a LOT for work, and it's so enjoyable to write with. Doesn't bleed through the paper, yet still gives a nice, confident line. Not to mention you can get one for under $1.

Edited to add: Amazon link

u/socalgreengal · 3 pointsr/pens

You might like Sakura Microns or Staedtler Fineliners: (these also come in finer lines; these are 0.45 mm)

They are both great for making dots, writing, doodling, etc. They are among my favorite pens!

u/cealion · 3 pointsr/bulletjournal

Any notebook using Tomoe River paper, such as this one, is famous for being able to handle ink well while having super thin pages. For me, I've discovered that my Leuchtturm1917 is perfect for what I do. That being said, I don't use relatively wet inks such as fountain pens, so if you're planning to move onto those at some point, you might want to invest in something like the link above.

As for writing utensils, a good starting point would be the Staedtler pens, such as this, or if you want a bigger pack of them--this.

Good luck on finding your perfect notebook/pen combo! :)

Edit: I also thought I'd link Boho Berry's Mega Notebook Comparison and her review of bullet journal supplies--they're a bit long and I'm sure many other big names in the bullet journaling world have made similar videos, but she was the first one who introduced me to all this and I find her comments pretty detailed and insightful :)

u/Texintonian · 3 pointsr/spirograph

Yup. Looks like they're on sale too.

u/GhrabThaar · 2 pointsr/learnart

Something cheap with a fine point is all you need for drawabox. I worked with these for a year, still use them. They aren't archival but that doesn't matter for practice.

u/getchromaclub_com · 2 pointsr/Coloring

To be fully transparent I'll admit that we've had a few small hiccups in linework in the past, we're learning a lot in the process of digitizing some of the paper or "not print-ready" files some artists have given us, but we definitely recognize that people want quality and strive to improve.

Our paper quality, if that speaks to you, is 70# uncoated offset recycled content.

Typical office copy machine paper is usually coated (so less of a natural feel under the pencil, no "tug") and usually 22# or 24# (much thinner). Some markers bleed through though. In unscientific but well meaning testing we found that our paper resistance to heavier markers is roughly the same as the leading coloring books (a certain lady whose last name starts in Bas and ends in ford)

I use these a lot ( and for the most part it won't bleed through the page. Nevertheless we don't put coloring pages back to back so as to mitigate that risk.

Thank you both for this conversation, this is very helpful to us

u/thisisappropriate · 2 pointsr/TrollXChromosomes

You can get a pack of 20 for just under $20. You can also find some listings for them on Ebay.

There's also the fine liner version, which seems to be the main version on the US Amazon searches.

u/DefStar411 · 2 pointsr/SketchDaily

:) Thank you! I ink before I paint. I'll do a really light pencil outline then use a .1 pen to hit all the lines and then pick out which lines need more weight. Like a dum dum though it took me a while to figure out I needed waterproof ink pens. These are my jam.

u/cuzofurbutt · 2 pointsr/GetStudying

I have these and they are great for making my notes look pretty and organized. I've long been using different colored pens (black, blue, green, red) to make my notes not look so flat (how do you find anything when all your notes are in black?) but these pens are also good for drawings/diagrams.

I use a well writing black pen for standard notes, but whenever there is something important, a vocab word, something that'll be on an exam, I'll use a bright pen color. It makes my notes fun to reread, and easy to find information when I go back. If you don't want to be that fancy, you can just get a few different colored pens and decide how you'd like to designate them (blue/green/red), for vocab, !exam!, drawings, or just routinely change the color to break up the text a little.

Hope I helped a bit :) I immensely enjoy taking the time to make my notes organized and fun to read.

u/imustbbored · 2 pointsr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

Baby and mommy, suits us just fine. She is 20 months now so really a toddler but she still has a bit of baby (and baby smell!) in her. I look at the newborn pics and I have to tell my ovaries to calm down so I guess she's a big girl now! Okay i'm babbling.

So little miss thing is obsessed with Kipper the Dog, she has gotten into Clifford the Big Red Dog a lot and she digs some other stuff, but when it comes down to it Kipper is her guy, so how about this book for her item.

I like to write, I like the act of putting pen to paper, and a I love cool pens, ever since I got my brother one of these I have wanted one but can't justify it lol

My husband and I get no date time because of those meddling kids (I can say kids, as in plural, because I have a bichon that is like my little boy :)

u/Juxtzy · 2 pointsr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

The old man is snoring

:D indoors, drawing is amazing and fun to do when I can't go outside!

u/Mrs-Smith123 · 2 pointsr/ArtFundamentals

Well, you are supposed to do them with a felt-tip pen, but you don't need fancy ones for artists. I tried a lot of different ones so far, and honestly, I don't see much of a difference between most brands. Where I live you can get cheap "fineliners" in every store that sells school supplies, even supermarkets. These will do fine.
These are the ones that are most common in my country, but so far I like this one the most from all cheap ones
I have no idea if these are common in other countries as well, so it' mainly just to tell you that cheap pens work completely fine :)

If you can't even get these I guess you could start with ballpoint pens as well, as long as you switch to the recommended supplies as soon as possible :)

Good luck!

u/Zephyron51 · 2 pointsr/pens

Don't know if you're still in need of something, but these are great IMO. Relatively fine point, great flow because they're technically markers, 10 colors.

u/littlehug · 2 pointsr/pens

Wait? Do you mean these? I am not sure if they are considered felt tip or not. I have bought a few, and they did bleed a little bit. But, I buy cheap paper. I prefer the Pilot V5 for fine tip pens.

u/green_tea_latte · 2 pointsr/pharmacy

Yeah agree with most people here. I was gifted these staedtler pens and loved them: Staedtler Triplus Fineliner Pens, .3mm, Metal Clad Tip, 20-Pack, Assorted (334SB20BK)

Gift card for shoes for places like Clark's (need comfy shoes because we're on our feet all day). Or food- Starbucks, Trader Joe's, etc. Nice headphones.

Honestly though, during those stressful breakdowns just moral support is what's helpful. And.. it sounds like she's doing a lot. Not sure that it's all necessary, she could probably drop some stuff if it's affecting her mental health.

u/MohnJaddenPowers · 2 pointsr/Gunpla

You might try Staedtler technical pens, or Copic Multiliner SP markers. Both are extremely fine points - the Copics can go down to .03mm, but only in black, I think.

This set of Staedtler pens has pretty much every conceivable color you'd ever need to do panel lining:

They also just started selling these precision Q-tips, which when soaked in rubbing alcohol will take care of your excess pigment pen ink. Just run 'em across the line, and if you run into situations like those vents, the end is pointy enough to get in there.

If you don't wanna sink $10 on a 4-pack and they don't have them next to the Q-tips at your grocery or health and beauty store/drugstore I'll happily send you a package if you cover for the cost.

u/ChronicRBF · 2 pointsr/Damnthatsinteresting

{Amazon link}This seems like the pen used or at least the set.
Edit: mainly for the big black bits and line art, I'm not sure what was used for the finer details.

u/Jelsol · 2 pointsr/pens

Staedtler Triplus Fineliner. They come in smaller sets, too (I have the 20 pack, which I think is pretty cool).

u/EarthenOctopus · 2 pointsr/Watercolor

Thanks! :)

They're Sipa pens, .38mm. They're water soluble so the hard map blends in with the watercolors as I paint.

Any pencil marks I erase after I go over it in the pens. They don't move for an eraser, just for water.

u/warmre · 2 pointsr/bulletjournal

Le Pen and Stabilo pens write similarly to Staetlers, but unfortunately, all felt tip pens tend to wear down rather quickly.

u/kazaanabanana · 2 pointsr/Teachers

I don’t like using Flair too much (I know, teacher heresy) because the barbaric way I hold my writing utensils makes the part in the pen where the cap connects cut into my finger.

I bought these a month ago and love them dearly.

u/[deleted] · 2 pointsr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

Okay so.... this is probably my most favourite thing in my kitchen SERIOUSLY, makes life so easy.

anddddddd These pens are perfect Theyre a little over £10, but I would giftcard you the remanind pound or so :)

Thanks forr the contest... woop-di-woop :D!

u/random_introvert1 · 2 pointsr/pens

Hi! I'm a left-handed engineering student.

The pen I use is the Pilot Hi-tecpoint V5 Grip (link) with black ink. It's basically the Hi-tecpoint V5 but with a good grip lol. That pen was about $4-5 at my local art store at home in the pen section.

Context: I take notes in my Hilroy 200-page graph paper notebook.

u/asmodeuskraemer · 2 pointsr/rfelectronics

OH my god, the struggle is real.

This is one I was able to find:

However I never bought it. We didn't do a lot on smith charts, I wish I'd had more opportunity.


My favorite notebooks:


1.) F-ing graph paper

2.) Thick pages. I like colored markers for notes, like these:

The thick pages doesn't allow (as much) marker bleed and the notebooks hold up for a long time.

3.) F-ing graph paper and thick pages.

u/RayseBraize · 2 pointsr/EDC

Maybe not the same one but I just found stainless steal sharpies with black grip for about $12.

u/Nyanzapithecus · 2 pointsr/bulletjournal

I tend to go to Barnes and Noble for bullet journals. They have some pretty ones. My preferred journal is an A5 dotted type. Amazon also has a couple good brands too I’ve tried. Here’s the specific one I’m using right now.

I get my pens from Amazon. They’re like off-brand Staedlers: 60-pack with stencils or a smaller pack for trying.

Happy bullet journaling!

u/xdauphine · 2 pointsr/Coloring

Staedtler's fineliners come in a pack of 36
for 47$ on amazon, thats the biggest pack I've seen. On my wishlist :)

u/aefd4407 · 2 pointsr/AskWomen

Happy to help! What's your budget? I'm on mobile - let me see if I can grab links to what I would recommend based on what you want to spend

Edit: these are the markers I have and I love them. A bit pricy but worth it if it's in your budget:
(There is actually a bigger set you can get from I think)

For a coloring book, I have a couple I like:
This one (and the other ones by this author/artist) is great:

This one also looks nice. I don't have it but one of my friends does:

u/Sromiex · 2 pointsr/bulletjournal
u/p_cc1 · 2 pointsr/uAlberta

Depends on your personal preference. First, you need to decide if you prefer ball point or felt tip. You also need to consider if you want a wide range of colours.

I have come to love fine felt tip because the come in so many colours, as colour coding my notes helps me remember more from my studying. Staedtler Triplus Fineliners is what I use, and yes, I like them so much I bought the 36 pack. These do not smudge unless you are writing on glossy paper. However, if your page of felt pen written notes get wet, it turns into an illegible page of tie-dye.

Some people like ballpoint better because it makes for smoother pen strokes but I can't speak to best ballpoint brands as I don't use ballpoint often.

u/AllOfTimeAndSpace · 2 pointsr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

I'm in school too. I actually just bought most of my textbooks today. Cha-ching! Had to get my husbands as well. Sigh, one of my classes has FOUR textbooks for it this coming semester. I go to the University of Victoria and I am working on two degrees right now. I'm primarily finishing up my Anthropology degree. I should be done that at the end of next summer. However, I am also working on my Psychology degree. I'm not officially listed as being in Psychology but the advisor said I can start working on the classes I need for it for when I'm done anthro. It will take about another two years to finish my Psych degree. I actually just finished my summer semester up and got pretty good grades! I got an A in my developmental psychology course, an A- in my cultural anth course, and a B in my archaeology course. I am not a fan of archaeology. Still, I could have done better.

One neat thing about my school is that it tends to have a broad-based curriculum. For instance, with anthropology when you go off to graduate school you tend to specialize in something. You can specialize in medical anthropology or just in cultural in general, or you could specialize in archaeology in general or in coastal archaeology, etc. At UVic it is broad so your MA in anthro is your MA in anthro. You don't really have a speciality. Instead, you have to take courses and learn stuff from all the main disciplines.

This pen would help me out a lot as it's pretty comfortable to write with and I take a lot of notes at school and talk to a lot of people where I have to take notes. Anthropology and psychology equals a lot of writing!

These notebooks would be fantastic because in anthro we have to journal a lot and keep field notes and just, as I mentioned, write a lot. And these are fantastic quality and don't break quickly like others I've used.

Finally, these thank you notes would be amazing as I sometimes get bursaries and need to write thank you cards. Or these pens would be helpful as we have to make a stupid amount of posters in anthropology. Yes, I actually prefer writing a paper to doing up a poster. We get marks on how visually appealing it is as well as how relevant it is.

I think all of the stuff I listed can be found in my stationery/art folder if I win. :) Any one of the item would be a huge help in my school career. It's a shame that it's so expensive to go, still, I am grateful for the opportunity to do so.

This is a fantastic idea! You are such a thoughtful friend. Here's a list of cheap items that I would include:
• Nice pens. I am extremely partial to Uni-Ball Jetstreams
• A set of colored markers for studying and making diagrams
• Small Moleskine notebooks that easily fit into pockets for taking notes on rounds
• Ibuprofen for headaches that happen during residency. Again something small she can carry in her purse. I would suggest 200mg and maybe in a 20 count container. She can refill it as needed with her home ibuprofen. DayQuil or NyQuil are also good.
• Hot Chocolate and Hot Tea - something she can just mix with hot water and drink
• Quick snacks for when you're too busy to eat. I like Clif Bars since they're quick and filling. Special K bars and Luna Bars are also good.
• A candle to light while studying during residency can help set the mood to get work done. Or maybe that's just for me.

Hope this gives you some ideas!!

Try a felt-tip pen, like the Papermate Flair. Or a plastic-tip pen like the Sharpie pen. Ballpoints can sometimes get clogged with paper, especially if you're left-handed.

Are any of them interested in theatre? You could arrange to buy a couple tickets to a local show or something. Or even a symphony performance.

Otherwise, maybe a booklight, or a nice set of pens (I LURVE [this] ( set, because of the different colors. It's also available in [this] ( size.

Other things include restaurant gift cards, itunes gift cards, bookstore giftcards, or if you know of a bookstore or cafe they frequent, perhaps a mug or travel cup that can get them a discount on certain drinks.

Also, are they into puzzle books at all? I'm gifting my brother a cartoons crossword and I noticed there was a superhero one. That might be fun for your coworker who likes Batman.

Other than that, maybe a magazine subscription or a current edition, especially for the photography person. Sorry that's all I can think of. I hope that you find some things that make you excited to give it to them. It sounds like you're being very thoughtful and I'm sure that will show through! Good luck!

u/IanMacHiver · 1 pointr/EDC

There are steel barrels available for sharpies. Or just buy it presteel barreled like this one;:

u/annaleaf · 1 pointr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

Also. If you really want to start doing this (yay!) I recommend adding these to your wishlist as your starter pens. They are the best for cheaper fine tips, and the colors are so bright. Mix these with a variety of black pens until you find one you like the most... Personally, I am still trying out new black ones, but Pilot G3 makes for a really nice pen for a cheaper end one.

Sorry, I just care a lot about this.

Also, things you can add to your wishlist if you don't want to just go out and buy a bunch of this stuff:

  • A compass to draw beautiful circles

  • Rulers - I have two I use the most, and both are cork-backed

  • A protractor!

    If you do just want to go buy this stuff, everything is on sale right now at walmart and target for back to school, so this is a good time to start :)

I'm traveling right now! Currently sitting at my gate in the airport, waiting for boarding to begin. I'm very excited to be heading on vacation!

While studying, I like to have something playing in the background. I like to put something light-hearted on, such as Easy A or Bridesmaids. A funny movie is something that can help you relax if you need a break or is something to use as white noise. In terms of study help... color coding always really helped me. I don't know if there's any science behind it, but it definitely helped me with some anxiety associated with testing.

Idiocracy is an awesome movie. It's hard to describe why because it's just sooo good in all respects. I probably like it so much because I totally agree that we're going in that direction... BRAWNDO!

Paper-Mate SharpWriter Mechanical Pencils

They are cheap and I have never had one fail.

Sharpie Fine Point Pen

I love these things. All other fine point pens I have had tend to leak or tend to create dots of ink on the paper. These have leaked a couple of times, but I could explain that by either putting too much pressure on them in my pocket or letting them get too hot.

The come in different colors as well.

u/ironoxidey · 1 pointr/ArtistLounge

I’ve tried Copic pens and they’re good, but outrageously expensive (I think I paid close to $10 for one pen).

My preference is for Uni Pin Fineliners. Presently you can get a 6-pack of assorted sized tips (0.05, 0.1, 0.2, 0.3, 0.5, and 0.8) for 7 or 8 bucks US. I prefer the 0.3, 0.5, and 0.8 for what I do, but they all work very consistently.

My problem with a lot of pens that I’ve tried, is that they’re unpredictable. I need a pen that gives me the same results every time I use it—I guess that’s pretty obvious, huh? But anyway, I’ve tried a lot of different pens that friends have recommended, or that I’ve found at various art supply stores, in search of the perfect pen.

The Copics were even frustrating at times (and partly because I wanted to get my $10 out of them, and probably used them on empty for a little bit). Uni Pin Fineliners are the best I’ve tried.

(I should try to become an affiliate for them probably. As it is right now, I’m just passionate about pens. Scroll back through my Instagram to see the series of authors I did in their books with my Uni Pins—I don’t really post a lot on Reddit.)

The old style is all metal when the cap is on. The newer one has a black plastic ring where the closed cap meets the body of the pen. Among other differences.

Old: Sharpie 1747388 Stainless Steel Fine Point Permanent Marker

Current: Sharpie Stainless Steel Grip Pen, Fine Point (0.8mm), Black, 1 Count EDIT: Okay, this one has the pen tip, not the marker tip, but I'm pretty sure the refill cartridges are interchangeable.

I do glam planning so I usually say Etsy Gift Cards since that's where I buy my stickers but since Amazon doesn't sell those (they should get on that) I found these Staedtler Pens and actually need them really badly since my gel pens don't write well on the shiny stickers I buy. They're in my Planner Wishlist

I used to draw and stuff in my planners when I was little before the glam planning trend happened. It's relaxing for me to do on sundays to plan the next week and makes me want to stay organized since it's fun for me and I'm super girly and love designing!

u/ImSchland · 1 pointr/EDC

I use and carry a Fischer Space Pen simply for how little space it takes up in my pocket. And, for a ballpoint, it writes pretty well and consistently. I’ve definitely gotten my money’s worth out of it and have used it quite a bit. I will say to definitely buy the color/style you really want, be sure you’ll have this thing on you quite a bit if you buy one.

As for the pen that I actually use the most, I love Sharpie fine pens like these:

While a little pricier for a disposable pen, I find that they last for a good amount of time, the ink quality is fantastic and dries very quickly. I’m a lefty, so this is great for me so that I don’t get an inky-pinky at work. I can’t say the same for the Space Pen, as much as I like it, as it’s still a pressurized ball point.

u/JaggedOne · 1 pointr/EDC

There is another one on Amazon for $4. Looks almost the same, not sure what the difference (other than price) is.

u/iitaachi · 1 pointr/bulletjournal
u/blackunycorn · 1 pointr/santashelpers

A good set of pens is really fun for creative types. Pentel SignPens (either these or these) are fantastic. Sakura and Stabilo make great ones as well. I like previously offered highlighter ideas and love my new see-through ones that I linked there. Also what about a set of sketch pencils?

What about some paracord and accessories for making guinea pig leashes? There are tons of sites that tell how to make them, she might be into it.

I also just recently got a little more into makeup and found an AMAZING set of cheap makeup brushes as a starter set - These and I'm actually getting them for my 18 yo niece for Christmas.

Best of luck!

I used these - triplus fineliners. They take a while but the quality is always much better than thicker pens.

u/OmarvinG94 · 1 pointr/TokyoGhoul

I got mine from a local store, but its purchasable on Amazon too. Its called Uni Pin Fine Line.


u/mundet · 1 pointr/moleskine
u/city17_dweller · 1 pointr/Coloring

Well, everyone has different preferences, but I'd suggest getting one with pictures (this is lovely and very popular - she might find her friends have got it also, if they color) and one with patterns, (don't have this one personally, picked it at random) so she can decide which she likes to color more.

Fine tip markers like Staedtler, and a set of decent but not top-of-the-line pencils like Prismacolor would be a good start. If that's more than you wanted to spend, a smaller selection would probably be fine, or a cheaper good brand such as Staedtler Noris colors which I personally love. Oh, and get her a pencil sharpener and eraser as stocking fillers :)

[edit for links] - not linking the Staedtler Noris colour pencils because I'm in the UK and am not sure the ones are exactly the same.

u/PippyDickling · 1 pointr/EDC

One cheaper sharpie pens use the same refill, as in the entire grip, ink and pen assembly are identical it's only the body that's different. They're cross compatible. I'm talking about the ones with the same body shape but made of plastic, I just steal them from my coworkers or buy the pen from Amazon, take the refill from the old one, put my old refills in the new one and return it back. $5 at the moment

u/closedrop7 · 1 pointr/EDC

I use a a sharpie pen stylo

But I also just clip it in my pocket next to my knife and keys. A small issue if you use the field notes expedition at any point you'll have some smearing if you rub the writing any.

u/monstersof-men · 1 pointr/muacjdiscussion

Sooooo I just discovered this and I am contemplating buying it.

I am a sucker for stationery and I have the 10 pack and 20 pack of Staedtler pens, but I honestly use them so much that buying a 36 pack wouldn't be a waste.

However... my sister just visited the Toronto Muji store for me, and is bringing back a shitload of pens from there next week.


I'm so conflicted! I'm wondering if I should buy it for myself in March, or something, and if I still want it then it would be worth it. But I've also planned that for a new purse and a new wallet, too... and honestly... I can afford to buy it now, I just feel guilty about buying it now! :(

Sharpie Pen Fine Point Pen, 12 Black Pens (1742663)

This is now my favorite pen. Works like crap when signing carbon copies, but it's smooth and lightweight. Has a similar bold writing style like the G2 pens. These pens are my personal pens, they do not get handed out.

u/Shenaniganz08 · 1 pointr/medicalschool

There is a reason those pens are so cheap, they suck for note taking. They are great for comic books sketching but the nib is so weak that if you press too hard it ruins the pen. I found the best pens for annotating First Aid were Staedler Triplus pens

They come in way more colors, don't dry out and are very sturdy

u/IthacanPenny · 1 pointr/Professors

Staedtler Triplus Fineliner are most similar to ultra fine tip sharpies without any bleed through at all. They are superb.

I personally find that I am quickest at writing with shitty old bic sticks. But I do love my red ballpoint ink, wouldn’t create an answer key without one!

u/mrfujji · 1 pointr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

I made this for one of my best friends birthday; they love monopoly so I decided to create them their own custom one based around the weirdness of all our friends! It took me about a month to design on photoshop, complete with cards as well. Also this pack of pens would make my day, and probably my revision much more colourful haha :D

Thank you for the reply. I have some questions if you don't mind.

> Staedtler pigment liners ($20)

It looks like there's fiber tipped and metal clad tipped ones. I think the metal ones would hold up better, but I really have no experience.

What's wrong with spiral pads? I was thinking something I could fold over or just lay flat completely would be better especially since I'm left handed.

Thanks again for your time and help!

A lot of people use micron pens from Sakura. They're water resistant. I bought these and like them more than the Sakura pens, though. I've never had any problem with them bleeding even after painting over them.

u/nyxmori · 1 pointr/learnart

Thank you for the reference. The rough edges look to be mostly due to smaller short strokes instead of large ones, so a line-confidence problem. What helped me overcome that was learning to not going back over a line to 'fix' it after I made it, mostly by doing lots of 30-sec figure studies, since those force you to be line efficient.

What kind of pen are you using? A thicker one or a brush tip will help, since you won't need to go back over areas. Drawing larger will help too, since little line defects won't be as prominent on a larger page.

These pens are really satisfying to use, and since you color with pencil, you won't need to worry about color bleeding.

u/little-bun · 1 pointr/AskWomen

The Staedtler Triplus Fineliner is my all time favorite. I'm all about porous point pens because they don't smear and for whatever reason make my handwriting infinitely better than any other pen. I followed a bunch of study blogs on tumblr when I was in school and all the people that had the best handwriting and cutest notes swore by these pens. I especially love how many colors they have and the convenient carry case that turns into a stand.

u/jsamhead · 1 pointr/EDC
u/kristinw18 · 1 pointr/GetStudying

I experience the same thing, my hand cramps up and hurts if I try to ignore it. Unfortunately I don't have much advice since I haven't been able to overcome it myself. Maybe try using something different to write with, like switching types of pens or pencils to find one that is easier on your hand. So far the easiest I've found is the Sharpie brand pens.

u/geoffreyp · 1 pointr/writing

Amen OP. I'd struggled with the craft of writing until I started writing by hand.


I love the way it forces me to rewrite. As in not being able to just delete a word or two and continue on, which makes the page look messy. I stated rewriting sentences, just to change a word, and rewriting paragraphs just to change a sentence. It made it all flow so much better.


My hand writing was laughably terrible just a few years ago, but one year and almost 300,000 words later it's actually respectable - I get compliments on it all the time.


I also find it helps with writers block. If I can't figure out what to write next, or if I don't like what I wrote, but don't know how to fix it, I just go back and start rewriting, just working on copying the same words as neatly and carefully as I can. And before you know it, I'm off again.


OP, others, what do you write with? I'm a huge fan of the Sharpie fine point.
