Hi all! It’s Hayley here (@hayleyremdeart on Instagram), and today I want to give you some inspiration for labelling your Archer and Olive Acrylograph Pens. To set the scene, you're sat at your desk creating, picking out all the pens you need to create the perfect bullet journal spread or paint pen illustration, and it looks amazing! But now you realise you somehow have to put all your pens back into collections. I'm about to give you some tips to make that a whole lot easier!
Everything You Need To Label Your Pens:
- Archer and Olive Acrylographs – As always, it will be no surprise to you that this is my pick. The lovely and thick pages have no bleeding or ghosting, so you get a clean start for every project spread! Also, it means you can decorate the spread without worrying about it.
And one or more of the following:
- Label Stickers
- Clear Tape and Pencil
- Decorative Touch (optional) – This could be anything from stamps to acrylographs, or of course, nothing! I usually like to add a personal touch to my spreads so they’re more fun to use and look at.

Acrylograph Pen Names and Swatch Sheets
Before we start, a quick reminder that you can find all the names and swatch sheets here. So lets jump into some ideas!
First up, one simple way to mark out which collection each pen belongs to is Washi Tape. You can wrap the tape around the end of the pen, using a different pattern/colour for each collection.
Here I used some simple 0.5mm coloured tape to mark mine. You can even write the name/collection on the tape if you wish! But just having an easy way to identify which collection each are in is the most important part for me.
Another idea is to use label stickers. You can buy ones specifically to fit the pen, but I decided to use ones I already had. You could also simply use sticker paper if you have that too!
On the label I included the shade name and collection. As you can see I decided to hand write mine, but you could also print them If you are able!
Paper and Tape
If you don't have a label maker or stickers, not to worry! You can make your labels with simple clear tape and paper. Simply write the information on a piece of paper, cut it down to size, and then adhere with clear tape.
I actually find this holds up better than the stickers!
You can actually use the Acrylgraphs to label themselves! Simply pick a colour for each collection, and colour somewhere on the pen.
This could be a dot on the side or bottom, but to spot them quickly and easily I like colouring the whole end of the pen.
Finally, you can easily label the pens with a permanent marker.
I decided to create acronyms for each collection e.g. PBB = Plant Based Bride Collection and WF = Warm Fall etc.
