The most frequently asked question I get. 😉 What pens do I use? We print our planners & journals on high quality recycled 100gsm paper. What does that mean? GSM is an acronym standing for ‘Grams per Square Meter’. The higher the GSM number, the heavier the paper. Most home printer paper is 80-100gsm. Posters are usually 120-140gsm. Newspapers are usually printed 35-40gsm.
My current fav pens are these – I use them everyday. And I love these gel highlighters (no bleed).
Here are some of my fav other pens to use in our planners. I always recommend testing new pens & highlighters on the back notes pages to make sure they work well. The erasable frixon pens are awesome but they will lighten up or go away in heat. :/ Please note sharpie pens (fine) work great but sharpie markers will bleed.
