I have never sent a paint pen TTM. Mostly bc I dont trust/expect the signer to take their time and let the ink dry before they send the item back out!

I keep it to just sharpies.

And even then there is no guarantee that they will use the marker/pen that you send them. But it doesnt hurt to try.

I have a sharpie question about getting this adidas swingman jersey signed by my favorite player, Zach Randolph, who's coming for the All-Star game. Alright, So i want to get it signed on the left side of the zero. I just bought these metallic silver sharpies and tested them out on some dark fabric and they came out pretty good. Is it really necessary to get Deco Color markers. Im considered very new to getting autographs, so any input on what type of pen I should use would be great. I dont mind spending extra money on a good pen thanks!

here are the metallic sharpie pens:

It sounds like you will just be trying to catch him at a hotel or the arena that weekend? I'd be hesitant using the Elmer's paint pens for that type of graphing setting. Too much prep with those markers. I'd stick with those silver Sharpies you have.

If it's a sit down signing at like a fanfest then yeah, I'd do a paint pen like an Elmer's.

Paint pens are great.... but not in an uncontrolled type of signing environment.

They take too long to dry, and can smear/run quickly!

They are similar to Sharpie Paint pens... which I think are horrible! IMHO

I like the elmer's paint pens just make sure to shake them up really well maybe even bring a blank paper to a show to get it going because sometimes they will skip the first couple times. As far as the "Silver" or sharpie paint pens go make sure you get a sharpie "water based" not "oil based" paint pen I've had no problems with it and to me looks just as good as elmer's. For blue markers on helmets I like the Staedtler lumocolor over regular sharpie.

Does anybody have an recommendations for the type of paint pen to use for a Chicago Bears full size helmet? I've been using Deco Color silver paint pens & just recently tried a Prismacolor silver paint pen, but I'm having an issue with the paint either bubbling or splattering. How do the Elmer's paint pens work on full size helmets? If the paint pens work, they turn out great, but if they don't work, it doesn't look very good. Or does anyone have any tips for prepping the pens? Thanks!

Elmer's silver can get streaky. Make sure you test it well before hand.

Elmer's black never seems to die. Going on over a yr with that one and it still works great.

I retract the previous post about the silver sharpie. I wrote my name on a glossy riddell helmet box using silver sharpie and silver elmer's after 30 mins i smeared and scratched both. The silver sharpie flaked off pretty easily, I scratched the hell outta the Elmer's and it only received a very slight smear it would not come off. Only draw back was the elmer's silver takes longer then the blacks and blues to get the paint flowing.

myself... I like to use Elmers Paint Markers. Yes... The same company that makes the glue. You can buy them at Walmart.

They come in all colors and sizes, and I feel regardless of what surface you are writing on the colors always look vibrant. Silver, blue, and black especially look amazing.

Unlike other paint markers... Everytime I use an Elmers they work right away and always seem to write as if brand new. No feathering or skipping. Obviously they will run out eventually, but by then I've either lost them or let the athlete keep them to use, so I can't be to sure on how they write when the paint runs low.

The Elmers Paint Markers are next to impossible to find at my local walmart. I was thinking about ordering them on ebay.

For the best price, I'd buy online. I just bought 4-5 deco's online last week and they were a good $2 cheaper than in the store.

Ive tried just about every paint pen out there and for me, I like Deco much better than any of the rest.
I use them for pucks/ Jersey numbers/ Bats/ black MLB baseballs and photos. Everything still perfect and bright as Day 1.
