High-quality materials are imperative for creating beautiful artwork that will last. Stocking a wide variety of drawing pens is important for office art departments, home studios, and school supplies. Well-designed pens help artists work more efficiently and end up with the desired results. There are numerous attributes to consider beyond simply the color. Ink type and point size are both important, and specially designed brush pens are useful for hand lettering and comic art. Staples carries a wide selection of drawing supplies, including watercolor pencils, charcoal, and kid's crayons.

Stock Up On Basic Black Drawing Pens
Black pens are essential for comic artists, scrapbooking enthusiasts and anyone who often writes by hand. Pentel offers black pens with either a point tip or a brush tip. The water-based ink is nontoxic and doesn't bleed. It also dries instantly. Pens are usually sold individually but may also be found in a bulk package. Sakura brand pens supply beautiful, quick-drying black ink that's waterproof and doesn't bleed or feather. Their pigment-based ink is chemically stable and extremely durable. It's nearly impossible to alter once it dries, making it ideal for signing legal documents. It won't smudge or fade on most porous surfaces, such as cotton fabric.

The pigment liner pens from Staedtler have a long metal tip specifically designed for use with rulers or other straight-edge devices. The fine point won't dry out even after hours without the cap, and it delivers light-fast and waterproof ink in consistent lines. The ink is even erasable when used on tracing paper. Faber-Castell Pitt black pens have super-fine points for detailed work and use high-quality pH-neutral India ink that is waterproof and smudge-proof when dry.

Add Colorful Variety
Along with black pens, colorful pens are essential drawing supplies. Pentel's pens are available in brilliant, true colors, such as red, blue, green, brown, pink and yellow. Sakura pens use pigmented ink for bright, rich color that dries quickly. Artists can appreciate the subtleties of warm gray, sepia and dark indigo. Marvy Uchida offers the Le Pen line of products, featuring lightweight construction and a 0.3-millimeter point size. The brightly colored ink is smudge-proof and available in 18 different colors, such as teal, green and lavender. While bulk packages of colored pens and drawing pencils work well for offices or classrooms, home artists may get more use out of a variety package with single pens in several different colors. Most brands offer sets with multiple colors.

Choose Several Different Sizes
A well-stocked art set should include drawing pens with different point sizes for unique projects. Fine-point pens are useful for line drawing, captioning and certain types of hand lettering. Medium pens are important for certain types of comics, such as manga. Some brands offer a set of black pens in several different point sizes. Many different companies, including Faber-Castell Pitt, have large brush pens designed for art and calligraphy. A brush pen has a flexible fibrous nib that allows the artist to vary the line width by changing the angle to the paper. They also offer water brush pens for use with solid colors or powdered pigment, allowing artists to mix and smooth colors.
