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.
