Best Gel Pens For Planners

September 8, 2019 43 By Stanley Isaacs


If you’re a planner addict, but can’t
seem to find the right gel pen, we’ve got you covered. We picked some of our most popular planners
and tested over 20 gel pens to find the perfect combinations so you don’t
have to do any guesswork. We’ll also share other top picks, so keep
watching to see if your favorite gel pen made the list. Let’s get started. Top Choice: Uni-ball Signo Gel Pens The Uni-ball Signo is one of our favorite
gel pens, and it works with any planner you can think
of. It comes in dozens of colors and tip sizes
for bold headers, colorful text, and more. The pigment-based ink smudges slightly under
highlighters and markers, but it’s waterproof and fade-resistant so
everything you write will last. Best Gel Pens for Hobonichi Techo Planners:
Sakura Ballsign Knock Gel Pens The Hobonichi Techo Planner features Tomoe
River paper that is ultra-smooth and makes inks shine
beautifully. Most inks require more time to dry on Tomoe
River paper– but not the Sakura Ballsign Knock. In our tests, this gel pen was dry to the
touch in ten seconds. It also only smears a little under highlighters
and markers. The expansive color options include metallic,
neon, and glitter inks in broader tip sizes. The Best Gel Pens for Leuchtturm1917 Notebooks:
Ohto Rays Flash Dry Gel Pens The Leuchtturm1917 notebook is a top choice
for planning. Its paper balances fast dry times with low
absorbency. We recommend pairing it with the Ohto Rays
Flash Dry Gel Pen. Like its name suggests, the ink dries in a
flash. It smudges slightly under markers, but not
enough for us to find distracting. The Best Gel Pens for Rhodia Goalbooks and
Webnotebooks: Zebra Sarasa Mark On Gel Pens Rhodia’s Goalbooks and Webnotebooks are
luxurious planners with thick, velvety paper. The high-quality pages mean most inks take
a long time to dry, but the Zebra Sarasa Mark On didn’t smudge
after five seconds. Plus, the Mark On has specially formulated
ink that resists smearing from highlighters and markers. Best Gel Pens for Zebra Mildliners: Pilot
Hi-Tec-C Gel Pens The Zebra Mildliner is notorious for smudging
gel inks– but not the Pilot Hi-Tec-C. You can highlight over it after just 10 seconds! Although the Zebra Mark On we mentioned earlier
works with Mildliners right away, the Hi-Tec-C has more colors and tip sizes
to choose from. Click on the card above to see our video dedicated
to the best gels pens to use with Mildliners. The Best Erasable Gel Pens: Pilot FriXion
Gel Pens For plans that are always changing, the Pilot
FriXion Gel Pen is an excellent choice. The thermo-sensitive ink disappears with heat
from friction, so you can get rid of any mistakes. It’s not just a great erasable pen though– the FriXion dried quickly across all the papers
we tested on, and stood up to highlighters and markers. Most Color Options: Zebra Sarasa Clip Gel
Pens If you can’t get enough color in your planner, Zebra Sarasa Clip Gel Pens are an excellent
addition to your pen case. They don’t just have outstanding colors– the Sarasa ink is particularly smooth and
dries quickly. The Most Tip Sizes: Pentel EnerGel Gel Pens The Pentel EnerGel boasts the most tip sizes
for you to create bold headings and write tiny details. From needlepoint 0.3 mm tips to broad 1.0
mm, each gel pen uses smooth, blob-free EnerGel
ink. There’s little smudging under highlighters
and markers, but make sure to leave extra time for the
larger tip sizes to dry. To read our in-depth guide on these pens,
