It’s hard to beat a fountain pen from the German company Lamy. Click here for a package that combines the Lamy Safari with ink cartridges for a no-mess option.


It’s hard to beat this AmazonBasics hardbound notebook to make shopping lists, journal entries, and scribbled notes for under 10 bucks!


If you want to expand into artisan ink colors or keep multiple pens with different color inks, below you can find some links to what you’ll need to take your writing game to the next level!

The Lamy Refill Converter allows you to ditch the cartridges and stock Lamy ink.

Noodler’s EEL Black ink will help a new fountain pen writer write with ease. The contrast is pretty amazing. Not all black inks are made the same! There are many colors available in the Noodler’s line – check them out!

I keep everything in this canvas bag from Rapiddominance, and I love it!
