White ink creates unique contrast on dark-colored surfaces, making it a valuable tool in the pen case of any artist, scrapbooker, cartoonist, or designer. We carry a large selection of white ink products for all types of applications, and have created this guide to help you navigate through this white wonderland. Read on to learn more about white ink pens and find the ideal tool for your project!

How to Choose a White Ink Pen

Tip Material

A felt-tipped marker and a metal-tipped gel pen.

Felt tips, like those found on markers, produce bold strokes with some line variation depending on the amount of pressure applied. Metal tips, like those found on gel ink pens, produce thin and consistent lines.

Line Width

Line widths range from 0.4 mm to over 2.0 mm

Fine-tipped pens are great for details — for example, adding white highlights to a drawing. On the other hand, if you’re making a signboard that needs to be visible from a distance, broad-tipped markers are a more effective choice. Keep in mind that broader-tipped pens may have longer dry times.

Opacity

Opaque inks will cover areas more thoroughly.

Opaque inks provide greater contrast, so choose an opaque pen for any project that calls for high visibility. Transparent inks are less opaque and allow the underlying surface color to show through, resulting in a more subtle look.

Our White Gel Pens Video offers a closer look at some of our top performers, including writing samples, craft ideas, and more.

White Gel Pen Recommendations

Top Recommendation: Uni-ball Signo Broad

The Uni-ball Signo Broad is our best-selling white gel pen. Artists and crafters all love its highly opaque and viscous ink. Though the pen tip may occasionally clog due to this thick ink, scribbling on a damp towel or piece of scratch paper will get the ink flowing again quickly. Long periods of unuse can cause the pen to dry out, so it’s best for those who use white ink often or who are working on a large project. Like other Signo pens, it is archival safe and water-resistant.

Also Consider: Sakura Gelly Roll

The Sakura Gelly Roll is also wonderfully opaque, with the bold tip size laying down a juicy line of white ink. Even its fine and medium tip sizes produce bright white lines, making the Gelly Roll great for detail work. Writing slowly yields the thickest lines, while quick scribbles produce a less opaque effect. The Gelly Roll is less likely to dry out than the Signo, so it’s ideal for those who only use white ink every now and then. Its ink is waterproof, archival safe, fade-resistant, and fraud-resistant.

How to Use a White Gel Pen

Many artists use white ink pens to add highlights to comic or manga art. After inking, add white highlights to eyes, hair, and clothing to make your drawings more vibrant. White accents mimic the reflection of natural light and will bring your artwork to life.

Product Used: Pentel Hybrid Gel Grip DX

Also Consider: Sakura Gelly Roll

White ink is a must-have for scrapbooks and photo albums. Add fun captions and doodles to your photos with a smooth-writing gel pen. Certain pens, like the Sakura Decorese, are specifically made for writing on glossy photo surfaces.

Product Used: Sakura Decorese

Also Consider: Sakura Glaze, Sakura Souffle

White ink is not only for writing on black paper! It also shows up wonderfully on kraft paper, dark cardstock, and colored envelopes. Use white ink on various backgrounds for unique DIY greeting cards, invitations, and other paper crafts.

The Best White Markers

White Marker Recommendations

Top Recommendation: Uni Posca

The Uni Posca Paint Marker is our top recommendation due to its opaque ink and ability to write smoothly on almost any surface. It puts down a thick line on paper, glass, metal, and cloth. The extra fine tip is perfect for tiny details and is more opaque than the medium tip. Once dry, the ink is waterproof and lightfast. It also has a lower odor than most other paint markers. While we only show test results for the extra fine and medium tips, the white Posca is available in more tip sizes from ultra fine to extra broad.

Also Consider: Sharpie Water-Based

While the Sharpie Water-Based Paint Marker isn’t quite as smooth as the Posca, its vividly opaque ink can rival correction fluid. It is most opaque on paper but also works on a variety of surfaces, including glass, plastic, metal, wood, stone, and more..

Chalkboard Recommendation: Marvy Uchida Bistro

Chalkboard signs can add a charming touch to weddings, coffee shops, and parties. Our top chalk marker recommendation is the Marvy Uchida Bistro Chalk Marker, which comes in two sizes and produces bold, opaque lines. If you make a mistake, simply use a damp cloth to wipe the ink away. Please note that these only work with plastic chalkboards and will not erase from traditional blackboards, which are porous.

White Marker Test Results

Paint marker tests were done on Pilot Black Notebook paper. The ink tests were done over Pilot Futayaku Brush Pen ink. Chalk markers were tested on a plastic chalkboard and not a traditional one that is porous.

How to Use a White Marker

To achieve a vintage chalkboard-inspired look, try a chalk marker— they’re easy to use, you can update your design any time, and you won’t have to deal with messy chalk dust. Best of all, chalk markers are erasable with just a bit of water, so you won’t need to worry about making mistakes. Please note that they are not erasable on porous surfaces, so they will not erase from traditional blackboards. Make sure to test your surface before using the markers on it.

Product Used: Marvy Uchida Bistro Chalk Marker

An erasable marker can add temporary decor to any smooth surface. Doodle festive artwork on storefronts and shop windows to attract customers, or ask the kids to decorate car windows on a family road trip. Both the Raymay Board Marker and Uni Posca Marker can be wiped away easily off glass with a damp cloth.

Product Used: Raymay Fluorescent Board Marker

In need of a last-minute gift wrapping idea? Use a paint marker to make your own DIY wrapping paper! Depending on the size of your gift, you can use a grocery bag or a smaller lunch bag. Just cut the bag apart until it lays flat, and then use a white ink marker to add some flair. You can draw dots, swirls, stripes, or geometric patterns.

Product Used: Uni Posca Paint Marker

Conclusion

Though not as ubiquitous as black or blue, there are occasions when white ink truly shines. Our customers are always discovering unique uses for their white ink pens— some use them in research labs, or in medical clinics to mark x-ray radiographs.

Whether these pens inspire your creativity or simply get you through a busy workday, they are a valuable and versatile tool to have on hand. Pick up our JetPens White Ink Pen Sampler, which contains all of our favorites, or take a look at all of our white ink products. You can also check out The Best White Drawing Inks guide, which covers bottled drawing and calligraphy inks.

*Alcohol and oil-based pens (Sharpie Oil-Based Paint Markers) perform poorly on porous paper but very well on nonporous surfaces, such as plastic or glossy photo paper. They also tend to dry up faster and may not work well after a period of no use.

The Best White Pens for Black Paper

Writing and drawing with white pens on black paper is a fun way to add some pizzaz to a drawing practice. In our traditional black on white world of mark-making we’re accustomed to putting dark marks on white paper, and perhaps it’s the tonal reversal that’s compelling and unique about white on black drawings. However, finding a good white pen that will show up on black paper can be a challenge. At least it was for me, and I wanted to spare you the hours and expense of trying and testing a ton of pens that might prove disappointing.

A few months ago we invested in a big roll of black paper to cover our art tables. This paper is fantastic. It’s heavier than wrapping paper and thinner than Kraft paper, so it does a nice job covering the table without being too difficult to secure with tape.  With the tables covered, we were itching to draw on it with opaque pens, and white ones in particular. Check out White Drawings on Black Paper to see the drawing prompt that kicked off our search for the best white pens.

After a few false starts with pens that faded against the bold black backdrop, I picked up some white pens at the local craft store. Unfortunately, these pens didn’t cover the paper well and one skipped spots as I wrote. Hmmm. There must be a better pen out there!

It turns out that not all white pens are created the equal.

This prompted to me to do a little digging to find the best white pen for black paper.

Here’s what we worked with:

Craftsmart White Paint Pen (Michael’s Craft Store)

Recollections Signature Broad (Michael’s Craft Store)

Sakura Pen-Touch 1 mm Fine Point (Amazon)

Ranger White Opaque Pen (Amazon)

Signo Uni-ball (Amazon)

I brought my 4-year old into the decision-making process since she’s the one who actively uses the table as her own personal scribble zone.

Signo Uni-ball (Amazon)
Our hands-down favorite. Since doing this test I have since ordered three more, and frequently travel with one in my bag. There’s a reason this pen gets 5-stars on Amazon. The ink runs consistently and it’s thick and opaque. It also writes like a regular pen, meaning that it’s not bulky like a paint pen. (3 for $7.50)

Ranger White Opaque Pen (Amazon)

This was our least favorite of the group. With the ball-point system, the ink came out in chunks and wasn’t smooth at all. Pass. (2 for $5.89)

Sakura Pen-Touch 1 mm Fine Point (Amazon)

This pen has to be primed by pumping the nib and up and down, to get it going. Not as bright as the Recollections pen (below), but it works. ($6.49)

Recollections Signature Broad (Michael’s Craft Store)

This pen was a favorite. It’s easy to write with the color is opaque. It’s perfect if you’re looking for something broad and thick. ($1.99)

Craftsmart White Paint Pen (Michael’s Craft Store)

This is one of the first pens we used. The ink flowed well and it was easy for my daughter to use. The only complaint is that the color wasn’t hyper-opaque. ($0.99)

If you come across a particularly fantastic pen or have an opinion on this topic, I would love to know about it. Share a link in the comments below.

Happy drawing!

Fineliner / Felt tip pens / Fibre tip pens

Fine Writing



Scandi Chic is perfect for people who like a home or office that is tidy, but not clinical. The living style with clean lines, a lot of white and soft colour tones creates a simple, relaxing yet elegant effect. Faber-Castell has created the perfect desk accessory for the trend: the AMBITION OpArt “White Sand” is clean, pure and classy. The fine guilloché is eye-catching, creates fascinating optical effects and gives a light grey shimmer to the white.
The elegant model in the OpArt series is based on a lovely idea: it is a tribute to optical art, a stylistic art form from the 1960s. The OpArt “White Sand” is extremely comfortable to use. In the ballpoint pen, this is down to the twist mechanism which allows the large-capacity, black refill with line width B to be extended and retracted. For maximum writing comfort, the fountain pen has a high-quality nib width M and a cap which can be easily reconnected. With its spring-loaded chromed clip, the cap ensures that both pens are held securely in a writing case.
And if you like things to be more black and white: with the AMBITION OpArt “Black Sand”, the AMBITION OpArt “White Sand” has already found its dark counterpart in the collection. Together they make an attractive pair and a perfect double gift for Christmas, a wedding, creation of a joint company – some accessories are simply ideal for any occasion!

We highly suggest that you order extra invites to account for lost, damaged or returned items that may occur during transit time via USPS. We always recommend that you have your invitations hand-canceled.

___________________________________

What is hand-canceling?

Hand-canceling is when each envelope is hand marked by a person at the post office instead of being run through an automated machine. The post office ensures the stamp(s) you put on the envelope can’t be reused again by marking or “canceling” it with an ink stamp. Unless you specifically request your invitations to be hand-canceled, they will be processed and stamped by a machine, which might tear or smudge them. We always recommend invitations be hand-canceled at the post office to ensure that they arrive at their destination looking as beautiful as possible. Check with your local post office for availability and pricing before you purchase postage. We cannot assume responsibility for the state of your invitations during mailing, but we have found hand-canceling is the best way to ensure a flawless delivery.

How Have Felt Tip Pens Changed?

There are many different types of marker pens that we use today. Cheap kid’s felt-tips for colouring in. Permanent markers for labelling stone, glass or plastic and dry-erase markers for writing and easily erasing on white boards. They are ubiquitous almost, an object that we don’t really give a second thought to.

But the humble felt tip pen has a rich history behind it and a recent paper published in the Journal of Cultural Heritage has used chromatography to investigate a few of the changes in ink composition. The paper – Disclosing the composition of historical commercial felt-tip pens used in art by integrated vibrational spectroscopy and pyrolysis-gas chromatography/mass spectrometry – investigated and compared pens used by the Brazilian architect Lina Bo Bardi in the 1960s with formulation of more recent felt tip pens to ascertain the changes in formulation.

A brief history of felt tips

Felt tip pens are a relatively simple design. A tip made from porous fibres that are pressed together to make the felt tip and a tube or reservoir to hold the ink, sometimes in an absorbent material. Oh, and don’t forget the cap or it’ll dry out. The first felt tip pen was patented by Lee Newman in 1910 and was a cylinder filled with ink that was connected to a felt tip. A ‘fountain paintbrush’ followed in 1926 that has a sponge on its tip, followed by a patent in 1944 for a ‘marking pen’ that had liquid ink in its handle with a felt tip. Several other designs followed before the modern fibre tipped pen was delivered in 1962 by the Tokyo Stationery Company.

Geared initially as an art item, the pens were soon used in many other situations and applications. There were also changes to the solvents used to carry the dyes, from toxic solvents like xylene or toluene to safer alcohol-based solvents that are used today. The modern fibre tipped pen also incorporates pH modifiers, surfactants, biocides and thickeners amongst other ingredients. All designed to ensure the ink flows smoothly and leaves nothing but the intended mark on the surface.

Who left the cap off?

In the paper referenced above, a team of researchers analysed a set of pens used by a Brazilian architect in the 1960s and compared the results with information about modern fibre tipped pens. The researchers used spectroscopy and chromatography to analyse the ink from the pens. There are many different types of chromatography, the following articles compares two of the main types, SFC-MS versus LC-MS – advantages and challenges.

The work allowed the researchers to identify the dyes used in the 1960s inks and some of the other chemicals in the inks such as the binder and a plasticizer. The team found that some of the older dyes had been replaced by modern lightfast dyes. For example, phthalocyanine blue pigments are used in place of triarylmethane blue dyes of the 1960s.
