Confession of A Stationery Addict

It is no secret that I am a planner-addict + Stationery-holic as I have been addicted to buying pens and stationeries since young. I admit that I do have a variety of pens and love trying new pens. One of my favourite pens / brands that I use daily is Pilot Frixion – which has a wide range of pens, markers, highlighter, color pencils and stamps that have erasable ink (ink that can be removed with friction – and thus the name Frixion). Today I am showing you some of my writing supplies that I often use in my planners – and most of these are Pilot Frixion. Pilot Frixion (most of the colors) erase clean and without any residue (unlike how you erase the pencil writings with normal erasers).

I am loving the pink and green combination in this month kit – it has subtle festive colors. I also love the My Mind’s Eye Jubilee sticky notes (with Calendar) which is so versatile and useful for day-to-day planning.

When I am writing on my planner pages, I often reach for my Pilot Frixion point 0.4mm or 0.5mm. I don’t like the 0.38mm as they are too fine and scratchy for my likings. I have a set of Tokyo Disney edition Pilot Frixion in 0.4mm that I bought it while I was in Tokyo this year. I like that these Frixion pens are refillable so I can always keep these cute Mickey pen casing even when the original ink runs out. These Frixion Point 0.4mm write ultra smooth but I do notice that being erasable ink means the black ink isn’t as dark & as opaque as usual blank pens. And i didn’t like how the eraser is placed on the end of the pen since i always place my cap on the end when i am writing i.e. I need to remove the cap then i want to erase the words.

I also love using Pilot Highlighters (in pastel color), pilot stamps (gift from my Japanese friend) and Gel Stick highlighter to highlight important dates on my monthly calendar.

I stick the monthly calendar sticky notes on my page marker to gently remind me of the important dates. I write the dates with Pilot Frixion Colors (more like markers) and stamp some of the dates with Frixion Stamps.

Since the ink is erasable, I can easily erased some of the dates and stamp it with Frixion stamps. I also love that the Frixion colors come in 24 colors (although I only have 20 colors). And one of the favourite feature of Frixion pens is that they hardly bleed since the ink isn’t as opaque as usual inks.

HEre’s a simple color swatch the i made using some of the Pens that include in the previous Daisy Day Planner kit (say Poppin, Micro Pigma – I am using Black here, and Sakura pens). I have also included some Pilot Frixion pens & markers & the gel stick highlighter that I often use.

    how well do the Frixion pens stand up over time? Maybe it doesn’t matter since the intention isn’t to be archival, but I heard that they fade pretty quickly due to the erasable quality of the ink.Read more…

      Hi Kelle,

      the Frixion pens fade due to heat or friction. I didn’t keep my planner in very high temperature space (or near the window) so mine don’t have any issue with fading. I read that if the writing faded / have been erased, you can put them in the freezer and the writing will appear again (although it might be lighter in color).
      And yes they are not of archival quality, would recommend Pigma Micron pen if you are looking for archival quality pens.
