About this deal

Decos are best known for their metallics, but they also have quite the extensive color options to choose from, as they’ve got around 30 non-metallic colors to choose from. They’re definitely a known quantity when it comes to performance, but the issue I encountered is the fact that their red and blue markers weren’t quite true to the color, and were off enough that it was noticeable. I’d recommend testing it before having someone use it for signing. Also, it’s ultimately up to you to test the pens for yourself to see what would work best for you and your item, as not every surface, climate, condition, etc can be reasonably tested for. This was just because I wanted to try out a bunch of pens and find the best one out there, and figured the community would enjoy the information. Again, they are just like the Decocolor paint pens, but are more readily available in stores to the European consumer. Solid performer and no issues with the end result. Like the Decocolor series, they're available in different nib sizes and colors, but are only identified as such with different numbers, such as 780 for Extra Fine, 751 for Fine, and 750 for Broad. Sharpie Paint Pens

verifyErrors }}{{ message }}{{ /verifyErrors }}{{ When compared to the other paint pens, the Posca Paint pens are surprisingly unique when compared to any others on the market for two completely different reasons. The first is the non-metallic paint that they use is flat, as in there's no glossy characteristics to them, and that might be what you need on a certain item. The other unique thing about Poscas is that the ink is completely opaque, meaning that you will not be able to see through it to whatever was signed, allowing for the signatures to stand out from the item that was signed. Paint pens shine when used on transparent surfaces like figure windows, as the standard Sharpie is semi-translucent, but good paint pens are opaque, meaning that you cannot see through them. But you also must be careful with them - some words of advice when using paint pens is to carefully read the instructions for first prepping and using that particular pen, as some can be quirky, and the other is to prep and test the pen just before the item is going to be signed, as you want to ensure the best result possible.One thing that I found with a few a few of the color paint pens, is that when you did not shake them long enough, they did not completely mix, so you could see the white base paint along with the color pigment in the signature. So be sure to shake the pen long enough and test it out on a similar surface before putting it to use. Edding As I mentioned in the previous review, I only discovered this brand of pen because an artist who chastised a friend who was helping me get a book signed, because the pen wasn't archival and all that jazz. Anyways, this pen is more like an ultra fine Sharpie as far as the nib goes, and produces a similar result - but is an extremely niche product. Overall, it is an archival friendly India Ink pen, which means that it would be a good pen to use on art prints, but I wouldn’t recommend using it for photographs or posters.

Because of the opaqueness of their ink, I think Poscas are the clear winners when it comes to white and red, as with the other markers I tested, their paint was still translucent enough that you could see that was something underneath it. Poscas also have quite the selection of colors to choose from, the most of any of the paint pens out there, and you can see their selection of 59 colors here. PenTouch
