My Favorite Bullet Journal Supplies

I have been getting a lot of questions regarding my Bullet Journal Supplies lately, so I thought it was high time that I compile them all in one comprehensive blog post for you. The supplies that I’m listing here are always subject to change, depending on what I am using at the moment.

My big plan in the near future is to start doing detailed reviews on different supplies, so you can expect this list to be updated regularly with links and reviews as I get them filmed.

Before we dive in, remember that you can bullet journal with any notebook and pen of your choice. 

You do not need anything fancy to get started. All you need is a notebook and a pen.

The notebooks an pens that I recommend here are simply the ones that I have used and loved. I strongly encourage you to explore different brands, sizes, colors, etc… the sky is the limit!

Leuchtturm1917My current notebook of choice is the Leuchtturm1917. I use the dot grid version in an A5 (medium) size for my every day Bullet Journaling. I also have one to use as my daily journal.

I also use the Master Slim (A4) size Leuchtturm1917 as my Blog & Business Bullet Journal.

I love these notebooks due to their paper quality, numbered pages, built-in index, and multiple ribbon bookmarks. Plus, they come in so many beautiful colors… what’s not to love?

Other Popular Brands:


Daily Use:

Faber-Castell PITT Artist PensMy absolute favorite pens to write with in my Bullet Journal are the Faber-Castell PITT Artist Pens. I love them for their dark black ink (India Ink). They create bold lines, and are waterproof, acid free, and archival.

I recommend the S (0.3mm) and the F (0.5mm.

While they are a bit on the expensive side, they last for several months of daily use. Even better, they don’t bleed through the paper ever when I color in large sections.

Staedtler Triplus Fineliners

For color, I love my Staedtler Triplus Fineliners. These are felt-tip pens (0.3mm), and I use them daily for color-coding my Bullet Journal.

These pens come in different pack sizes. You can find them in 5-packs, 10-packs, 20-packs, and even a pack of 34 — all of the colors that they make!

I love the 10-pack because it’s easily transportable and gives me a good selection to choose from.

Tombow Dual Brush PensFor my color index, I use the Tombow Dual Brush Pens. These pens have a brush tip on one end, and a marker tip on the other.

They put down beautiful color, and I love that the brush tip can make a nice thick line of ink.

These pens are also commonly used in brush lettering. They come in a huge array of colors, and are even blendable! Besides using them in my Bullet Journal, they are also great for coloring.

Fountain Pens:

It’s no secret that I love my fountain pens. I’ll be doing an in-depth review on some of my fountain pen recommendations for beginners very soon. For now, here are the pens that I own and use on a regular basis:

Fountain Pens

While you can purchase fountain pens in a variety of online and brick & mortar shops, I highly recommend buying from Goulet Pens. They have exceptional customer service, fast shipping, and they package their goods with a slightly ridiculous amount of care.

Plus, Brian is a wealth of fountain pen knowledge! Seriously… I have learned so much from this man!

Pen TestAs always, I highly recommend that you start a “pen test” page in the back of any new notebook.

It’s great to test the pens and ink that you have to see how they will react to that particular paper.

Different inks and pens will behave differently based on the quality of the paper, so it’s nice to know before diving in and potentially “ruining” your first few pages in a brand new notebook.

** I’ll be including some fountain pen inks here in the future, so definitely stay tuned!


Washi Tape

Washi TapeWhile I don’t use washi tape very often in my Bullet Journal, it IS a quick and easy way to add a little color and decoration to your notebook if you so desire.

I’m quite ashamed to admit that I have quite the little collection of washi, even though you won’t see much of it in my Bullet Journal.

It is a great way to hide mistakes though. ;)

You can find washi tape in SO many places now. Craft stores, office supply stores, and several amazing Etsy shops.

Rulers & White-Out

Bullet Journal SuppliesI use white-out tape often, and although the paper in my Leuchtturm is an off-white, I find that once I have written over it, you really can’t tell the difference. I know that the color difference bothers some, but to me it’s really no big deal :)

My favorite ruler, is this clear plastic one. I love it for its size (it can span 2 pages in my A5 journal), and for it’s flexibility. It also is transparent, making it easy to create perpendicular lines.

While I don’t use a ruler very often (I’m kind of lazy like that), I definitely recommend one if you’re worried about your shaky lines :)
