I can't get a pencil to sign on my (chemical) prints. The graphite just doesn't transfer even on the matte paper. I could use a sharpie but would prefer not to have to. Is there a specific kind of pencil that I should be using?

Someone in another thread recommended the Microperm pen made by Sakura.

Here's a link to it on Amazon.com: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B002ZZ46BC/ref=ord_cart_shr?ie=UTF8&m=A79CLRHOQ3NF4

I've never used the product. Just repeating what I heard.

Trying to stay away from pens though, any pencils?

You could try artists' pencils.

But I'm afraid anything soft enough would smear if the print is handled.
