Did you just buy the Crayola Super Tips markers and you are looking for ideas on how to use them?

This post is not sponsored and there are no affiliate links in this post. I bought these markers with my own money.

Or are you looking into buying some new pens for your bullet journal?

I was looking for pens that I could use for calligraphy, hand lettering, and in my bullet journal for decorations.

I was originally thinking about buying the Zebra Mildliners, which are on the more expensive side when I read this post which talked about the Crayola Super Tips as an alternative to the Zebra Mildliners.

The Crayola Super Tips came with 50 markers for less money than the 3-packs of Zebra Mildliners I was planning on getting!

The Crayola Super Tips also come in similar colors though most of the Crayola Super Tips are a little bit darker! :)

I looked into the Crayola Super Tips immediately and realized that a lot of other bullet journaling planning bloggers liked them too.

So those are the ones I decided to get, and I have been using them nonstop in my bullet journal binder to make new spreads.

I really like the colors that the Crayola Super Tips come in even though most of them are on the darker side than on the pastel side.

Using Crayola Super Tips for Calligraphy

They work well for calligraphy too. It didn't really seem like they have a brush tip. I have just been changing the angle (Like with a chisel tip calligraphy pen) depending on when I want a thin or a thick stroke.

They do have a watercolor/ombre effect when you write with them, so if you go over an area more than once, the area will become darker. It hasn't bothered me that much though.

The Crayola Super Tip Colors

I bought the 50-pack of Crayola Super Tips, and there are a lot of colors! Most of them are darker, but a few of them are more pastel.

Below is a picture of all of the Crayola Super Tip markers with a swatch page so you can see how the colors look on paper.

Some of the colors are hard to tell apart and the markers do not have names on them, just on the box. Once you mix them up, it is hard to tell which color is which.

The one thing about these markers which annoys me a little is that the color of the marker on paper is sometimes very different from the color of the cap.

Overall though the colors are super pretty and there are a lot of them to pick from for when you are making a new bullet journal spread.

Using Crayola Super Tips in my Bullet Journal

If you didn't know, I use a bullet journal in a binder, which is why the pages in the picture below are not in a book. (You can see a picture of my bullet journal at the top of this post in case you are wondering what it looks like.)

As you can see in the following image, the Crayola Super Tips can make thick and thin lines which is super helpful. They can be used in layouts for hand lettering, highlighting, and coloring.

I have been using these markers to color code my bullet journal pages and for making layouts for the new year and I am loving them!

They do bleed through the page on regular printer paper if you aren't careful, so I am using cardstock for the following layout because I am going to be using the layout for almost a whole year.

The colors are pretty and they look beautiful on the page. :)

I used a sharpie pen and a pastel blue Crayola Super Tip in the following image.

I really like the Crayola Super Tip Markers and I think that they were a really good purchase, since they were under $10 for 50 markers. :)

I may buy the Zebra Mildliners later to try them when these run out, but for now, I would say that the Crayola Super Tips are a perfect buy for someone who is looking to use them for hand lettering or bullet journaling.

If you liked this post, you might also like these too.
