Writing on fabric

In case you've ever wondered the same thing, I did a little experiment this week and thought I'd share the results... I've always wondered which pens can mark on fabric and stay through the wash/dry cycles. Some fabric pens request heat-setting (which is really boring and can be time consuming). These tests were all done with no heat-setting. The Bic Mark-it pen bled even before i put it int the wash, but all the others looked great. I was especially wondering about the Sharpie writing pen, but it might actually look the best of all.

Anyhow, I'm glad I did this. My faith and fetish with Sharpie products still stands.

Know of others that mark well on fabric that gets washed and dried? Leave it in the comments.

The Pigma Micron pens are supposed to write well on fabric. Alison asked for our signatures to be written in a Pigma pen, too. She heat sets them, so I don't know how they would survive your test. :)
I'm very happy to know that the Sharpie Pen did so well! I love how it writes on paper, and now this is just one more reason to love all things Sharpie. :)
