I much prefer the Signo Bit - especially for writing in Japanese - but sadly it’s no longer made.


#3

Did they make it in white, though?


#4

No idea. I had red, blue, and black. I even had several in reserve since I had to order them from Japan and I knew they were being discontinued. Sadly they all dried up before I could use them. :frowning:

Hmmm.

kickstarts a gel pen humidor


#6

That’s the white pen Sarah Palin uses to autograph her buses!


#7

I’m sure you could find an audience/market with bullet journalers, scrap bookers, and sundry others.

You said it works great on dark paper – we use paint pens to write on DVDs at our library so they won’t disappear. How does it handle plastics and other slick surfaces?


#9

So the DVDs become… invisible?

But the ink you scribbled on them… remains visible?

This is a very interesting problem and solution, thank you for sharing!

:rofl:

Is there a thread here for What is your Band Name, Rapper Name, Album Name Pen Name, Book Title? Because “White Out over Higgins Ink” sounds like the title of a YA mystery novel :grinning:


Somehow this all got me thinking about the children’s book The Secret Pencil by Patricia Ward (1959).

Aw, c’mon. Most otters are freakin’ adorable.


#12

Yes, but have you tried writing with one? They get bored too quickly, and fishy pawprints don’t really meet professional standards.


#13

There otter be a way!


#14

You have to use females – he otters are terrible.
