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.
