Hi Upper School. If you know me, you probably know that I love pens. I have tried so many different brands, so if you want recommendations on which ones to use, continue reading!

First up are the Tombow dual brush pens. I love the various colors that they offer, and the brush side is great for titles. They don’t really bleed through the paper too much as long as you don’t press too hard. They are on the pricier side though, but definitely worth it.

Next up are the Mildliners! I feel like so many people have these, and they are very useful when doing schoolwork. I mostly use it as a highlighter such as in books or papers that I am reading. The colors are also great, and they don’t bleed.

These Paper Mate gel pens are incredible. They don’t smudge when you highlight them, and they write very smoothly. I got them because my friend recommended them, and I do not regret my decision.

The Pilot G2 pens write very smoothly, but they do smudge easily if you don’t let it dry. It isn’t very good when you are highlighting it, but otherwise, it is a pretty good pen.

Hopefully this article helps you decide which pens are worth it!
