Photo Guest Book Question

We are thinking of doing the photo guest book instead of the standard guest book. But I had a question about what kind of writing implement to use. I am worried that if I use a regular pen it won't write on the photo paper but if I use a Sharpie it will smear. If anyone has used this type of guest book could you please tell me how you did it. Thanks ladies.

    Regular pens will work.

    Regular pens should work  - be careful with the gold or silver paint pens my friends book turned into a huge mess because it took long to dry and everyone was turning the pages - eeek gold everywhere!

    Most of the photogs I met with told me Sharpies work better, but it depends on the paper used. Some kinds of paper, a regular pen won't work. So if you are getting the book made with your photog, be sure to ask.  HTH

    You could do a fine point sharpie or go to Michaels and get an Archival Pen in the Scrapbooking section..

    Regular pens won't usually smear. Anything else I think you run the risk that it will.
