I've got to replace my stash of pens since most of them have dried out - what are your favorites?
Pens - what are your favorites

My experience with art journals is that it will an expectation to go through pens since you are writing on different kinds of textures. I'm not sure I would use really expensive pens anymore. How about sticking with sharpies or I also have the large Faber Castell Big Brush Pitt artist pens. I'm not ruining anymore of the smaller sizes in the same brand.
What have you been using so I know what to avoid?

My favorite pen is: 207 Retractable Gel Pens, Medium Point, Assorted Colored Ink, Set of 8 by Uni-ball Amazon They go up and down in price, I bought them at $9.41 in June. They fluctuate between $8.50-$12 in price.
I love the colors, I haven't had them smear, or bleed. They are a fine tip making it super easy to write small. And I'm still using them. Not dried up or ran out yet.

I love Sharpies, but I don't worry about whether something is archival. I also really like my Atyou Spica glitter pen in Jet Black - it's nice to write with and sparkly I have a Copic Multiliner that I like the weight of, but it's almost too thin (0.35). I think maybe an 0.5 would work better for me.

I like Zig Millenium pens for non-glossy papers and AC Slick Writers for glossy papers. Not sure if it's the way I write or if I can't bring myself to write slowly, but I always get breaks in the lines when I use gel pens, so anything felt-tip is my preference.
