Various Writing Utensils for Note-takers

Can you picture a day when, after some vigorous note-taking, you find no ink marks on your hands and arms? Maybe not. But perhaps you can at least less if you use the right writing utensil.

The following are some of your best choices:

Multicolor Pens

If you must finish your project as colorfully as can be, this is your best pick. They are available in literally each color across the spectrum. Creativity can be a great way to manage the stress of school. If you sometimes feel the need to just color and forget about your exams, get those markers and start coloring away.

Pencil

If you’re in doubt about what writing utensil to use, get a pencil. For standardized testing and multiple-choice tests, this is certainly what you’ll need. If you make mistakes, just erase, erase, erase.

Ergonomic Pencil Grips

If you usually have to use pencil, you probably hate the way your fingers feel sore at the end of each lengthy note-taking session. This is specifically the problem that pencil grips are there to solve. These grips, which are ergonomically designed, are made to provide cushioning for your fingers in the exact position you have them when you’re writing.

Colored Pencil

Sometimes, colored pencils can be your last resort. Without a doubt, they’ll come useful for those obscure craft assignments.

Mechanical Pencil

Like it or not, you won’t find pencil sharpeners in college classrooms anymore. If you hate the sight and sound of lead breaking on a regular pencil, switch to a mechanical version, which only have to refill with lead.

Fountain Pen

With a fountain tip pen, writing can feel magical. You can use it to write thick letters and calligraphy. You need skill to use this type of pen, but it’s worth spending time to learn. If you’re one for fancy writing, this is great for you. Aside from that, imagine writing with a fountain pen in class. Classy!

Permanent Markers

Most people need a sharpie to label folders and notebooks or whatever. Have one in hand. You want to be ready when you need it.

Quill Feather Pen

Just like the fountain tip pen, using a quill feather pen for note-taking will also give you that sense of class. Not to mention you’ll attract the attention of those who are addicted to pens and Harry Potter.

Rollerball Pens

Of course, when everything is said and done, you will find your loyal standard black and blue ballpen right by your side. You will be able to take notes with it, anytime, anywhere and at any speed. If you’re the type who scribbles your notes during a high-speed lecture, this is your perfect ally.
