    Planning on getting some translites signed soon and was curious what everyone thinks is the best pen or marker to use. I used a fine tip black sharpie last time, but have seen a few signatures in silver and thought it looked nice.

    Silver Sharpie if you want the signature in a dark area, MAYBE black if you want it in a light area. Silver can work in a light area, because when back lit it will look dark.
    Keep the silver stored with the point down.

    It depends on what you are going to sign different pens are good for different surface of material you are going to sign.
    for jersey blue or black will be good or paint pen and on helmet blue or black sharpie,for baseball go with ballpoint pens.

    Just what he said.
    I work once or twice a year with nationally-known people I get in for our organization.
    I have found over the years, that the preferred pen of their choice whether silver or black, is Sharpie 'Fine Point.'

    The 'Very Fine Point' is too thin and as these folks usually sign FAST, these will sometimes skip (especially on a smoother surface). And often times they are more UNlegible.
    Ask for Fine Point.

    My 2 cents. Good luck!
