I tested out a bunch of white pens, I am always looking for the best one. So far I think I like the signo and the sharpie water based extra fine tip the best.

the link to the full post is Here

Do you have any different white pens, not pictured above that you love?

I have two or three of these different white pens. My problem is that I don't use them often and they dry up! Any remedies for that peas?

There was a recent GG video where she used a white pen she suggested. Can't for the life of me right now remember who or which pen. Think it was the video for using speech bubbles.

I have the Uniball and it

Thanks for the review! I'm bookmarking this thread. I have tried the uniball and was underwhelmed by it. I'm going to try the Sharpie extra fine point next.

I have always used the Sharpie "paint" one for years, the others never impressed me, so good choice OP!

I always store my pens with the point down. the only pens I don't store like this is the double ended pens I lay them flat. I have had some sharpies for 10 years and they still write like the day I bought them. I also have gel pens that are pretty old and they still work great. I wish I could find a good white pen..... I like the sharpie paint gold and silver pens.

Happy scrapping

I discovered the Signo Uniball white pen years ago. IMO they are the best. All the other ones dry up only after a couple uses.

I picked up a white paint pen a few months back and really love it. It works so well although would like a finer tip. I can't remember the name right now though

Thanks for doing the work and sharing with us. White pens are the worst! I really like the look of the signo.

I'm a fan of the uniball signo's too. I had no luck with the Sharpies

Thanks for the review. Might need to find an ultra fine Sharpie!

Is there really a perfect white pen?!?

I have the Signo Uniball and just feels it's too spastic. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't and therefore I get frustrated with it.

I am curios about the Sharpie fine point though, think I may have to try that one.
