About the tools, materials, and supplies

On this page, you’ll find a list of products and services that I use regularly, though not limited to.

I have suggested “sets” or “value packs” where it makes sense both value-wise and frequency of use. However, if you are just starting with pen and ink, consider purchasing in smaller quantities than what is listed.

DISCLOSURE: Some of these products are linked to suggested companies where you can purchase the items, primarily on Amazon. I earn a small commission when you use those links, though I encourage you to also shop around to find the best fit for your needs (value, model, quantities).

When you use one of my affiliate links, that seller compensates me. For example, as an Amazon Associate, I earn from qualifying purchases. You can read more about the disclosure on the Terms page.
