Hello ladies,

So I've been scrapping/stamping for years. I had life issues that kept me from it for a while. Now I'm back! Woohoo! So when I went to use my pens and markers most are dead or dried up. I need to purchase new pens. What would you recommend for journaling? I want something that dries quickly, doesn't smear and has great color options.
Thanks in advance!

I have ZIG pens that I love and American Crafts are good as well.

I guess it depends what you are writing on. I LOVE my ZIG pens for writing on my paper. I also love the Bic Mark-its for writing on acrylic. They have great colors.

I never thought I would be a fan of the Martha Stewart brand but I LOVE the fine tip pens and markers they produce. So easy to write with, doesn't smudge, comes in plenty of colors. I find myself turning away from my ZIG writers in favor of these little babies.

HTH!

In most LOs, I like my journaling to be pretty small, so I use my micron pens very often. I also have the ZIG Writer in several colors.

***Wow, I wish I had THAT ZIG set!!!***

I find myself using ZIG , really fine point pens but more and more I've been using just my white gel pen. You really can't beat white on the dark card stocks... and I own a WHOLE lot of pens

Another vote for the ZIG writer. I have it in black and brown. I also can't live without my white uniball pen (I only got it 3 weeks ago and already it's my most used tool)

I love my American Craft Pens and ZIG Writers. I also use Sakura Gel Pens every once and a while...

You also can't go wrong with a Signo White Pen...

I use sharpies!!! And the signo uniball that others have suggested. I have the sakura souffle pens that were mentioned a couple of posts up and they are a lot of fun (although not super puffy.)

I got the whole set of sharpies from Costco for $15 awhile back and can't justify spending lots more of a new set. Anyone know anything wrong with sharpies?
