Tips On Drawing Pens

Recommended Posts

Guest Maart&

I want to order some pens for GUI idea sketching on paper, but I'm unsure what kind to order.

 

Until now we've been sketching with ball points and CD Markers (I know). The CD Markers (0.7 - 1 mm tip) work quite well, but dry out very quickly (in seconds in fact). But this is more or less the kind of sketch pen I'm looking for: fairly thick tipped, black and allows drawing on cheap printer paper (so shouldn't leak through).

 

I've been searching for topics on this but found mostly topics about markers, and that's not what I'm looking for. Our office supplies supplier is Corporate Express, so if they can supply it, it would be even better, yet not necessary.

 

Thanks for the tips!

These are big in architecture studios (if you can find one that still uses paper instead of AutoCAD)

 

They come in all colors, a bunch in a box, and should be available from an office supply company.

also love the "pilot razor point II" - it is finer tipped, but i did not find it at staples.

 

all these are great, inexpensive, and do not bleed when markered over. we have used them for years and years.

Sharpie Pens are really good.

 

Theres another one called Sakura Pigma Micron. I really like those and they don't bleed much.
