Default Please direct me to the article about permanent pens

Could someone please direct me to the article where someone did a comparison of the permanent ink pens used in making quilt labels. I have tried to search without luck. Thanks.

No idea as to the whereabouts of the article you are looking for.

I use the Sharpie Extra Fine markers ... and heat set them with an iron.
It gives me lots of colour choices.

Don't know article. I use IdentiPen by Sakura, love that it has pens at each end (1 fat, 1 skinny).

I use either PIGMA (because they are truly permanent, and there are LOTS of colors) or SIGNO roller ball pens (I get them at Sam's Club, and they are permanent after heat set, also smoother to write with on fabric due to the roller ball). I think Sharpies bleed too much and the writing turns out fuzzy looking. I also iron fabric to a piece of freezer paper and run it through the printer then heat set, works great too.
