Opinion - Permanent Fabric Pens

Recommended Posts

what is your "go to" permanent fabric marking pen for a signature quilt? the quilt is already made and will be signed at a 50th wedding reception. Thanks for your suggestions! :-)

The Sakura Ident-i pens are my favorite for ease of use and permanence. Sherry Rogers-Harrison, of Inklique fame, had a trunk show last month at my guild and that's the product she suggested for signatures.

Micron Black Pigma pens...available at most craft stores - even Walmart!  :)  Iron them for about 8-10 seconds and they are permanent and washable.  I use them for all of my quilt labels and any quilt that needs permanent writing.


Just a tip if you didn't know already - it helps if you iron on a little freezer paper to the backs of the blocks to be signed...writing on the fabric is so much easier with that little bit of freezer paper stabilizer!  :)
