I love fountain pens, but let’s face it – they are not perfect for every situation.
For vibrant gel pens, these Uniball Signo pens are among my favorites.
And (bonus points!), they help prevent check fraud! (Not really sure that’s a selling point for most people who are handling their check writing electronically these days.) (And I’m not really sure banks would appreciate checks written in some of these colors.)
Here’s the blurb about check washing from the back of the package:
I love the pretty colors. They really are quite vibrant.
Love the click action. The clips are nice if you’re into those (I’m not).
Like most packaged pens these days, these come with the protective blob at the tip to prevent leaks.
The grippy section is – well, grippy. The texture has a good feel to it. I’m not completely sold on the material used for the grippy section – it feels a bit rubbery to me, but it’s not awful.
How do they write? Lovely, that’s how!

At around $10 per pack (eight pens), it’s hard to go wrong.
If there’s a negative, it’s that I wish these came in a finer tip. The .7 mm is a bit thick for my preferences – but I’m assuming they’ve asked around and this is what most people want.
When you’re not using a fountain pen, what are you using?
I have just discovered your blog. I am really enyoing it.
My answer to your question is that lately I am using rollers which use fountain pen ink cartridges. I have two of them the Kaweco and the J. Herbin ones.
