Staedtler Triplus Fineliners and Rhodia



There was a time when I was trying and buying practically every kind of drawing pen I could find – especially if I could buy them individually as opposed to having to purchase an entire expensive set of colors I wasn’t likely to use. The Staedtler Triplus Fineliners  shown above have a super fine 0.3 mm nib which makes them great for writing or drawing and they have a triangle shaped barrel which makes them easier to hold over long periods of time.

Have you ever tried these? Do you have any other brands of drawing pens/markers that you recommend?

  1. I have used the fineliners and the rollerballs for journaling and I love the rich colors. I also really like the idea of them not drying out when you leave them uncapped – I’m bad about that sort of thing so it’s a plus for me.

  2. I have 26 of these colors and use them for major college note taking, especially because they can stay open for a long time while I work. I gave some of my older ones to my granddaughter who has done some art with them and they hold up powerfully well. I keep a few near me at all times.

  3. I’ve used the Triplus and they are great. Blick has them in open bins so you can pick the color(s) and the cost is very reasonable!

  4. I love my staedtlers, but since I’ve been having trouble finding them, I’ve been trying a few other drawing pens. I rather like the Uni-Pin line of drawing pens, and the Kuretake Mangaka (the barrel of the pen sparkles!)Both of these hold up good on textured watercolour paper as well. The copic multiliners I’ve tried are okay, but occasionally frustrating and fussy, and the nib disintegrates when you look at watercolour paper, let alone get to using it. I am really biased agains Sakura Microns. Not only are the uncomfortable and expensive, but I’ve had issues with the ink smearing and bleeding and the nib being really fragile. >.>

    …. I just realized how much of a drawing pen nerd I am. :P
