    Pencil for signing prints

    Hi,

    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?

    Thanks!

    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/B00...=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.
