I am making my son's girlfriend a quilt for high school graduation, and have some blocks on the back where her friends can sign.
My problem is that in the past, I have used Pigma Pens for the signatures. But I have never really been happy with them. The points are too sharp, everyone has a hard time using them, they fade after only several washings, and they seem to dry out very quickly (after not all that many signatures). In my opinion, no matter what size pen you use, the line is just too fine to stand up to use and washings. I have just never been satisfied with Pigma pens for this purpose.
This quilt will have to be USED and ABUSED and WASHED. so I am scouting around for an alternative pen to use.
I came across Sharpie ultra fine point pens. The package says the ink is permanent, and the tip seems to be easy to use. I wonder, though, about the durability of the ink.
Has anyone used Sharpie ultra fine point permanent ink pens on their quilts? How do they hold up?
(Wondering and hoping you say great!)
