What color/type of pens do you prefer?

Asked by jfos (7362points) August 9th, 2010

Blue? Black? Some other color?

Do you prefer certain colors for certain writing purposes?

What about the method of ink-baring? Do you prefer caps or clickers? Or even the elusive spinners?

I know that ‘pens’ looks like ‘penis’. No need to make that point.

I like pens that are thick and write thickly (kind of like…oh fine)

I don’t like pens with the cushy grip.I have to have a hard pen ;)

Mtl_zack's avatar

I always use pens, and I hate pencils. I like using black pens, and it has to write smoothly. But when I’m editing a paper I use red pens.

My favourite type of pen has to have black ink and write very finely.

LOL! I like my pen hard and think! I got that one:)

Well I’ve only tried blue, black, green, red pens. If there were orange or purple or something pens then I would say all pens are fine to me.

p.s I like them hard.

Fountain pen. Black, permanent, waterproof ink. Old school.

Like my coffee, black strong & always at hand.Well most of the time anyway.

I love writing in green, but day to day black is my colour of choice. And it has to be a biro, my writing’s already too spidery to cope with free flowing ink!

I like the black, fine-tip, clicky Sharpie. Ballpoints make me press to hard, and gels are too finicky.

I’m very particular about my pens, but I’ll take any pen over a pencil…I hate writing in pencil for some reason. Always black pens. Fine-tip. Never gel. Click-tops are preferred, but I don’t mind a cap. I prefer two specific types of Zebra pens over all other pens.

I did read this as penis. Imagine my disappointment when it said pens. Sigh.

CMaz's avatar

Blue, black, red and green.

Need the set handy.

jfos's avatar

In retrospect… I should’ve just put ‘pen’...

ucme's avatar

@jfos Well as someone once said the pen-is mightier than the sword.

@ucme I have to say, you’re write about that.

mrentropy's avatar

I prefer black Gel ink. I’m partial to the Pilot Precise V5 RT at the moment. But I sure miss all the Parker pens I’ve lost. Recently.

ucme's avatar

@jfos I had a feeling you’d be ink-lined to concur

TexasDude's avatar

Tul makes great pens.

Black ink Rollerballs…those little rolly balls make writing so much more fun and enjoyable! ;)

I love writing with felt-tip or gel pens… but I also like the transluscent Bic pens… they seem to write so smoothly, moreso than the non-transluscent. Don’t know why.

lapilofu's avatar

I use extremely fine point gel pens in a variety of colors. I prefer purple because it’s unusual, but I often switch colors to highlight particular words or sentences when I am writing.

Of course, I use black or blue in instances where it is requires—usually black.

ducky_dnl's avatar

I like purple ink pens. I like any type of pen that has a colour different than blue and black. :) Also fine point pens are best.

bob_'s avatar

This is the only pen I roll with.

crisscrossdork's avatar

I like black or blue ink pens with a fine tip.

mandybookworm's avatar

I only use blue pens with a fine tip. If it bleeds through the paper I usually get upset.

X_Peace_Love_Freedom_X's avatar

i like any pen just as long as the color is blue, i also like pens that are sparkly!
