At Mr. P's Old Chatham studio, we tested dozens of writing instruments to see which pen works best on our hot-press watercolor paper. At the end of an exhausting effort, we have found the best pen to write on the backs of our Illustrated place cards!
The Calligrapher Pen is a unique, all-in-one, durable lettering art tool that produces crisp edges and sharp hairlines. This disposable pen has a hard nylon nib that withstands heavy pressure and constant use, and still provides a reliable, smooth ink flow from edge to edge. This nib performs more like a professional flat metal nib and is a great choice for both amateurs and professionals. The archival Pigma ink is waterproof and fade resistant on most paper substrates.
Calligrapher's Pro Tip
- Spray the backs of the place cards with hairspray. Let sit a day or two before writing. Hairspray will prevent the paper from pulling the ink from the nib too fast.
