Signo all the way! I'd read about it on here but didn't want to pay $4 at A's for a pen. I was in one day with a coupon and really didn't need anything so go the white signo using my coupon. This pen is FANTASTIC! I wrote on several photos after getting it and also had all the girls in my girl scout troop use it to sign all their names on color cardstock when I scrapped a recent trip we took to DC. One of the girls has since gone and bought the same pen for scrapbooking! I've even bought the black one since and hope to get the silver and gold soon too.

Honestly, you can't go wrong with this pen.

I use a Slick Writer and a Sharpie pen. I've found some photo finishes where only the Slick Writer works, though. I've learned to test an extra print or a piece of cropped photo before going all out, just to be sure.
