A black Zig Writer takes all of the worry out of wondering what pen to use for scrapbooking. It has a fine tip on one end and a broad tip on the other (there are little icons on the barrel that show which is which so you don't have to take the lids off to check). The ink is permanent, pigment-rich and "juicy." I have several in my home and use them daily; I'm always so sad when the run out (they last a long time); because they're like a friend. If you want to try out other Zig pen tip styles get the black pen set (one of these pens is included in the set). There are one of each pen style include which makes the set handy for other lettering options. The pens come in 48 color sets too.

I use this pen all the time. I love that it has two sides, a fine point and a more "markerish" point. (I know that isn't a word, sorry!) I have at least 10 of these all over my house. I do not only use it for my scrapbooking, I have them in my purse, in the junk drawer, on my desk and in the car. Brad is constantly stealing them to take to work because he likes how they write. The only thing that you have to be mindful of when scrapping with them is to give them a moment to set or you run the risk of smudging the ink.

I love to creatively write on my scrapbooks. Both in the header and in the small prints. There is nothing better than zig writer pens. I've use them for years. Just recently ran out of the black. I will not use anything else on my scrapbooks. The zig pen will work for you every time. You can use the larger pen side for your headers and the finer pen side for your smaller writings. Its like getting 2 pens for the price of 1.
If you plan to write anything at all on your scrapbooking layout, you NEED Zig Writers! These markers/pens are so vivid on paper and come in a vast variety of colors.
The fact that they're twin-tipped leaves you with many options, as one end is fine for writing and the other is thick for either writing or coloring in a project. I personally like using both ends to color in rub-ons for a custom look.

I love love love this pen. I've used so many different kinds before for journaling and this is the best of all. It is the only one I use for journalling and doodling. What is so neat about it is that it comes in two tips...fine and medium which is really convenient. It also lasts for a long long time. I bought mine last year and am still using it so it's really worth its price.

Zig markers are a staple in my scrapbook supplies (black being used the most)! I love the rich color of these markers and that they don't bleed through the paper like some others I've tried. I also love that they have two different sized tips in one marker. The smaller one is great for detail work like stiching while the larger is great for titling. Great product!

This writing pen is excellent! Its is comfortable feeling in your hand, and comes with dual points. I use it every single day for my layout' s and am going to buy more! It writes on all kinds of surfaces, and is a high quality pen for not a high quality price!!! Worth investing in one, if you want a high quality writing utensil, that has a lot life in it!!

I love this pen! I use it on just about everyone of my lo's! I wish I can afford the whole set because I would love a pen like this in every color! For now I just use the black one and it works great! I love the fat side for adding borders and the thin side for journaling! I've even used it to write on pics and it doesn't smear! Highly recommended!

I love this pen. It is the black journaling pen for all my projects. I love that there are two sized tips and that it writes so fluidly. It takes just a second to dry, but not any longer than any other good pen would. I have at least 10 of these all over the place - not just in my scrap room.

I've been a bit fearful of journaling. Everytime it tried it my handwriting looked awful and never had the desired effect. But I used this pen for the first time yesterday and the result was beautiful! The two sized tips are very useful. Now I want one in every color!

This is the perfect pen for scrapbooking! I love that it has a thin end and a thicker end. I use the thin end for doodling and journaling, and the thick end worked great to fill in larger spaces using a doodling template! Glides nicely for neat writing.

There is no better writing tool for scrapbookers! I just adore the way they write. And, one of the best parts...they don't bleed! I've even used them on vintage graph paper that was very porous, and no bleed lines. They can't be beat!

This marker lasted me through three years of fairly frequent use before I just finally had to buy another one. Of course, I bought the exact same kind and brand because I've been so pleased with it. Well worth your investment!

I love journaling with this writer because it makes my ugly handwriting look half decent. It's great because it has two sizes in one. I have recommended this to my friend who I introduced to scrapbooking and she agrees.

I love this pen and I use it all the time for scrapping. I highly recommend this for all the scrappers out there, especially those who love doodling like me :)

I love Zig pens! I have used these so much in my LOs. I love that they have two ends with different sized tips, so if I want to add a thin line for small details I can, and with the same pen I can just flip it over and use the other side for thicker lines. I'd recommend this product for all scrappers!
