Brush Pens OCD

This morning, I went a little OCD on my work pens in preparation for doing some lettering today. I sorted out all the brush pens from the felt tip and rollerballs since they all behave differently on paper.

Then I did a little warm-up and test drive of all of them to figure out if the paper I was using would work. The paper is Hammermill Color Copy paper that I took out our copier because its bright white and super smooth. I didn’t have any issues with the pens. There was one alcohol pen that feathered a little bit but otherwise, the Hammermill was a good stock and even had a bit of tooth.

My favorite brush pens from this test are listed below. Thanks to JetPens who probably provided most of these.

  1. Sorry to hear about recent bad news at Hallmark, I was just looking for some brush pens yesterday in my local store, no luck. They do have thousands to pens and pencils to choose from, just not brush pens.
    All the best for you. Sarah

  2. Now I cannot wait until I can go home and sort my pens too!

    Oh how I do enjoy a bit of Friday afternoon OCD inspo !!

  3. How fun! I’ve been wanting to learn brush calligraphy and just haven’t gotten around to buying any pens yet. Crossing my fingers! 🙂

  4. I enjoy the blog and the variety of information you share. I haven’t tried brush pens yet. This would be a great opportunity for me to give them a try. Thank you.

  5. I’ve never used a brush pen before, except for once when I had to write Chinese calligraphy! Would love to try these…
