The White Pen Test


When trying to determine which white pen to carry in my store, I wanted to make sure that I tested each of them out before choosing. I tried 6 of the white pens on the market (see picture) and I found that almost all of the white color disappeared into the paper after coloring on it. When I colored with it, the white color was there & then it just evaporated into the paper. The best pen out of all of these was the Inkssentials White Pen from Ranger. The second best pen for the white pens was the pen on the left made in Japan by Signo. I was extremely disappointed with the results of the Sharpie, the Deco Marvey pen, and Galaxy. If I had to rank third place, I would pick the Gelly Roll (but only if I really had to pick lol). So...my winner is the Inkssentials White Pen. I would love to hear your opinions on white pens..

Hugs,

I really like the gelly roll one. Haven't tried a few of those though.

I agree I purchased a Decco pen and couldn't figure out where the white went LOL. Waste of money. I have a white one at home now that works well I'll have to see what it is but from the pic it looks like the ranger one you have. Thanks for doing this test.

What about the White Souffle pen? I like that one. It's pretty white.

I have the Inkssentials White Pen from Ranger and I just love it. Like you I have tried all the others and Ranger is the best. So for those of you who do not have one, I suggest you get one. :-)

I have the Signo by Uniball and I like it. The white ink stays visible, even on black cardstock. But now I've got to try the Inkssentials! LOL

what I'd love to find is a white ink pad that stays white even on textured black cardstock! I've tried several and NONE of them stay white, at best they become a very light gray, but I want a bright white! Suggestions?

I love the inkssentials pen...it is the best white one I have used. I need more, as people are always "borrowing" mine when they come to play!

I love my Siugno Gel pen from Stampin' Up! (Not just because I am a demo either LOL)
It goes on smooth and coverage is great. Have not tried the #1 that you suggested.
