If I had to choose a favorite color scheme for planning it would be rainbow! To quickly and easily do a rainbow spread you can use stickers, washi and other planner supplies but my favorite method that I always come back to is pens. They’re a great way to color code, quick, no mess (like stamping creates) and make your planner look pretty. So if you want to use rainbow pens too, these are my favorite:

While they don’t come in as many colors as some of the others on this list they do erase which immediately makes them my all time favorite pens. There are other erasable pens these days (e.g. Creative Devotion) but they don’t come in as many rainbow colors.
I randomly came across these when googling rainbow pens one day (yes I already had plenty of rainbow pens, no I don’t think it’s possible to have too many pens). I purchased them on a whim and omg these write so smooth the yellow is great and the pen barrel reflects the ink color.
Not the Write in Rainbow 0.4mm gel pens, I’m talking about the newer release felt tip pens. These are fatter than the 0.4 so the ink is less prone to skipping.
If you’re looking to create a rainbow spread without the ‘traditional’ rainbow colors, the Staedtler triplus would be my pick. There’s multiple shades of pink, blue, orange there’s also mint, brown and grey. Despite being needle tip and 0.3mm, these pens write really smooth (some needle tip can be scratchy and the ink prone to skipping) and feel more like a 0.5mm.
If you prefer something thicker, the Triplus Broadliner is 0.8mm – just note that they ghost a bit on the back side of the page.
Ooly ‘Just Write’ Gel Pens
Very similar to the Kikki K Write in Rainbow 0.4mm gel pens only these are less prone to skipping.
These pens were a random find. Nice colors, write smoothly and you get 2 of each color (light pink, hot pink etc.). They’re only 0.38mm so I was worried they’d be too thin but they feel more like a 0.7mm.
If you’re on a tight budget, try the $5 packs of jumbo gel pens you can get from Target, Big W, Aldi and the like. They may not last as long as the others on this list, but by the time the ink runs out you might want to try new colors or another pen brand anyway.
