    Question What pen to use on acetate cards?

    Is it ok to use a Sharpie on acetate cards? Or is another type of pen better?

    You know, those clear plastic, non-cardboard cards...

    I would think using a Sharpie would be fine, but the best way to tell is to mark on the card and see if it smears after letting it dry. After doing that, take some rubbing alcohol and take the sharpie off.

    Hope it helps.

    I've had acetate cards signed in the past but they always end up fading no matter what color sharpie was used...

    Thanks for the info! That's exactly why I asked. Maybe a paint pen?
