Different Types of Writing Utensils

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 successfully complete a colorful project, this is your best bet. They come in practically all colors known to man. Creativity is an easy way to work around 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. Read more about pens here.

Pencil

If you're uncertain what to use, go with a pencil. For standardized testing and multiple-choice tests, this is certainly what you'll need. Each time you make a mistake, just erase it and start over.

Ergonomic Pencil Grips

If you often use a pencil for taking notes, you probably hate the sore fingers you get by the end of a long lecture. This is exactly the problem ergonomic pencil grips are made to solve. These grips have an ergonomic design, which means they are made to provide cushioning for those fingers in the very position you use them for writing.

Colored Pencil

There are times when colored pencils become your last resort. They do come in handy for that out-of-this-world craft assignment we all get.

Mechanical Pencil

We have to accept the fact that college classrooms no longer come with pencil sharpeners. If you just hate seeing or hearing lead breaking on a regular pencil, a mechanical switch is your only option.

Fountain Pen

If you want a magical writing experience, try a fountain tip pen. It may be used for writing thick letters and calligraphy. Using this pen requires some skill, but you can always acquire it with practice. If you're one for fancy writing, this is great for you. On top of that, imagine yourself taking notes 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. Click here for more info.

Quill Feather Pen

Like the fountain tip pen, a quill feather pen can also make you feel classy when taking notes. Not to mention you'll attract the attention of those who are addicted to pens and Harry Potter.

Rollerball Pens

Of course, when the day is done and everything has been said and done, a standard black and blue ballpen will stand by your side. You will be able to take notes with it, anytime, anywhere and at any speed. If you tend to scribble your notes while listening to a fast lecture, this pen couldn't be more perfect.
