Hint: iron the label onto a piece of freezer paper, then write on it...more stable....

I recently tested several marking pens for a signature quilt. The Sakura Pigma Micron won hands down. it didn't bleed at all. I only tested black, so you'll want to test any colors you choose, just to be sure. I was able to return all the pens that didn't work to the stores where I purchased them...

I've always used Micron pens but lately I have been using fine point Sharpie pens. It is permanent and do not run.

I also use the Micron Pigma pens .05 & also fabric markers fine tip works well. I think the brand I have is by Tulip. I haven't tried the fine point Sharpies yet but love all the options we have now.

One thing I learned in a scrapbooking class. Do not use any pressure at all when using the Micron pens. The tips are very delicate and will be ruined in a second. This is why they won't work after a child uses it. LOL The Micron pens I tried on fabric all faded after several washes.

So many to choose from. I found a sharpie fine point marker that had came with my Janome that I bought from my friend. I tried it on a sample piece and washed it and it didn't run or fade out. So I went to JA I had some 60% off coupons so I bought. Some.
I want to Thank everyone for your help and support on. This is why I really love this Board. Thank You again.

I use the micron pens but use a thicker tip. I used to use a #1 but found it way too thin, I now use a #5. Always put a piece of fine sandpaper under the fabric before writing. It holds the fabric in place instead of dragging the fabric when writing. For a nice touch, go back and trace over all the lines which go down. Your label will look a lot better and fancier. Good luck!

I purchased a package of Micron .2 in a package of 6 at JAF a couple years ago. They work great and the package came with black, blue, orange, red, green, and purple. They are great. The last time I used them was on a signature quilt for one of our Music Ministers at church who was having a baby. They did the best job ever.
