What are my pen options for writing on dark colored cardstock? (I'd like to write in gold/yellow on black cardstock.) THANKS!

I like signo pens or Gel roller pens by sukura (I think)

Yeah, Gelly Roll pens are really good ... they have flourescent ones that show up on black (or any darker) cardstock and they are pretty inexpensive.

I would think that the metallic ZIG writers by ek would work... I will test it tonight and get back with you in the morning to confirm. They have a gold. it's just not listed in the super store.

Inkssentials by Provo Craft - I think they only come in white, but they are awwesome.

I use my Souffle pens on dark cardstock, they work really well.

all the suggestions above are great, but i also really like the Deco Markers, they are totally opaque and flow beautifully...they come in an assortment of tip widths as well as colors,the gold is one of my faves - its amazing.

this IS by far the absolute BEST white pen out there!!! First time I used it was in my Tim Holtz classes and I am sooo hooked now!

I use Sakura glaze pens - they give a great opaque coverage.

I love Souffle pens. I just bought this pack not too long ago. It says "puffy" but they're not really all that puffy. They dry nice and bright on dark cardstock.
