Wedding Invitations & Paper

pen for invites

What kind of pen did you use when writing your invites? I think a regular ball point/BIC pen looks kinda cheap, but the only other thing I can think of is a fine tip sharpie (I use them at work all the time). I don't like gel pens because the ink smears. 

Thanks!

  • I used a Sharpie to address the RSVP envelopes and printed on the invitation envelopes.

    Whoops. Lol. I used a nice ball point pen I got from a local hospital. It's a clicky pen but it writes well. Not quite as good as my Gpa's Mount Blanc though...... My family is super casual though. We care about what's on the inside as everyone tosses the envelope.

    We used a Sharpie-esque pen called "Elegant Writer". I really liked the way it looked on the envelopes and it had a unique, calligraphy-like tip that seemed to improve penmanship!
  • Pilot Precise V5.  They write so smoothly!
  • Thanks! I love sharpies! All I really need it for is to write names on the inner envelopes. Everything else is printed for us.
