Sometimes ALL gel pens, not just this brand, seem to get stopped up and don't want to write. I've banged the tip sharply on the tabletop, or maybe even heated the tip briefly with a Bic, to get them going again.

Default White Pen

I am so tired of going to use a white pen and having it not write. Which one is the most trusted...I need advice for one last purchase of a white pen before I give up!

Thanks in advance

I agreeeeeee with this totally. I have had to throw away 7 white pens from SU because they stopped working, UGHHHH. I finally went to the Inkssentail white pens and have had no trouble with them.

I had the same trouble and it drove me, almost, mad and then I went on line and bought the Inkssential white pen and I am really happy with it. Hope this helps.

I love my Souffle gel pen and my Sharpie fine tip poster paint. Both couldn't be any more opaque, and they don't quit working!

My Inkssential and my Signo worked the first few times I used them (and I have had several of each), but then they stop working and no trick I have tried would get them working again.. scribbling like crazy to heat the tip, putting a flame to the tip briefly, banging on the counter, freezing for a few minutes... nothing gets them going once they stop. And it's so frustrating since they're full.

I took my Inkessentials apart and stirred the ink with a bamboo skewer. That worked. But life's too short to spend time that way. Last night I bought a Sharpie fine tip paint pen at Creative Images (cis.com), but it might depend on how long the things have been sitting on the vendors' shelves, since the answers on this topic are so conflicting.

It seems as if many products are getting old and useless, especially pens, colored pencils, inks and adhesives. Self-adhesive bling that stuck a month ago doesn't stick anymore. Sticky Stuff that held metal leafing doesn't hold it anymore. ATG tape that stuck well no longer sticks, and 3 different brands of Vellum tape no longer hold anything. VERY frustrating, because of the expense. Dry Tombow markers are my biggest rant, but I'll spare you.

for those of you who have pen problems...before throwing out, try lighting a match to the tip to get it working. I've noticed that the pens have thick ink and sometimes need some help getting it to flow. Also store tip down and don't shake. Keep that little plastic tip that it came with. put it back on when done. Hope this helps. (p.s. I used to have to do this with my old ball point pens when in school).

I have the SU signo gel pen and the Ranger white pen...and a few others...and I actually like the one from Ranger the best. It has not let me down yet....even when it sits waiting for me for awhile.

Your pen is actually a "paint" pen. Don't leave the cap off any longer than necessary eg:as soon as you're done using it put the cap on even if you're going to use it again in a minute. I also wipe the end of my SU pen everytime I'm done using it. Just use my finger.

That would be great this thread is so huge to read through.

I took an oil rouge painting class, and didn't empty my tech pen, and let me tell you the ink was majorly clogged up, we used windex to clear it up. I did manage to clean out the nib on my white gel pen this way but the ink in the barrel was all dried up so the pen is usless, I went to grab my other gel pen which was stored vertically with nib down and to my surprise it was still working, so I think my suggestion for the white gel pen should work!
here it is---

Seems as though the nib on the white gel pens clog when the ink dries around the little ball, so use pliers to remove the nib from the barrel that houses the ink, soak the nib in window cleaner that contains ammonia(key ingredient), an it should dissolve the dried up ink. You can take something like a toothpick to poke/clean out any excess ink that may have dried up. Good Luck.

Just a tip that Dollar Tree has been carrying 3 packs of Signo brand gel pens in the school supply department. One of the sets has white in it. These are not as deluxe as the Signo UM-153s but the price is sure right.

TFS! Think I will stop by there today. It does not hurt my feelings so much to throw away a pen that only cost $1 in a set (if it quits working).


FYI: I love the Sakura White Souffle' pen...it goes on light but then brightens as it dries.

Where do you purchase the Sakura white souffle pen? Seems like eeryone is having trouble with their white pens, unless you use them everyday, which I do not.

Thanks

For anyone buying a Sharpie Poster pen, their site recommends doing the following to use it

Before using the marker for the first time: 1) With marker in tip up position and cap off, depress tip with finger. This will relieve any pressure. 2) Recap. Shake well to mix paint. 3) Take cap off. Depress point several times on surface to saturate tip with paint. 4) Repeat as necessary to keep paint flowing

Not sure if this particular brand has been mentioned (sorry I have'nt got time to read ALL of the replies!) but being here in the UK I use this pen

Edding 780 Paint Markers | Tiger Pens

After trying MANY white pens this has definitely given me the best results. I just could'nt get a Sakura to do a half decent job no matter how I tried!)

As it is actually a paint pen instead of gel ink there is a ball bearing inside it so when you shake it you can really hear it (like the old aerosols & spray paints). Also you pump the nib which allows you to dispense as little or as much white as you like. This is great if you have large areas to cover as the finish is much more even than with any gel pen I have tried. You can also use this method to pump out an amount then using either a "pokey" tool or a cocktail stick you can achieve Very detailed results.

One final plus point is that it dries like a white gloss paint to a lovely shiny finish.

For those of you in the UK they stock these in Ryman's the stationer's (formerly partners) and cost nowhere near the full price quoted here. I pay approx 4 which is way better than the rrp on the example I have provided plus no shipping!

Hope this helps someone x

I agree 100%. Have purchased four or five Signo's from SU, and tried all others. This is by far the best I have found. (sakura)

I was in Staples last week and they had some white gel pens by Pentel. I didn't buy them but I was wondering if anyone has tried those yet. I love my Signo Broad!

Don't forget to store them tip down. They dry out less faster.

I think any white/gel pen will have it's difficulties, you have to look after it and write really slowly with it to get a result. I have at least 10 types now and still can't say any one of them is a clear winner (including a certain Japanese version).

My SU one refused to work last night, so I ran the tip through a flame. After a bit of dry scribbling, it was working again. I store the thing tip down too, but I don't use it every day.
I'm looking into the white paint pens, I'm tired of the gel pens acting up.

To those who have tried the Sharpie Paint Fine Point ...
do you know of any local "chain" stores that carry it in-store? I'm another one who has recently been "thinking bad thoughts" about my white gel pens ... 3 here that refuse to budge. Arggghhhh!

Also, is the Sharpie a slow-dry ink?

Time for a better alternative from the gel pens for me!

Default Try this Pen fix

Seems I read somewhere that using an alcohol wipe on the tip of the pen works. Haven't tried it myself yet, and I should as I'm on my 3rd pen just because they quit on me.

Default SU white gel pen

I too was having trouble with this pen but read somewhere that I could clean it with a cotton ball and rubbing alcohol. After doing that I have had no problems with this pen. I passed the info to other ladies and some who had ones that were not working at all found to their delight that it revitalized the pen. Hope it works for you.!!

I just ran my SU white pen under hot water, the whole metal tip and it is flowing like butter now and not the runny kind, lol. This really worked for me--better than the banging on the table.

Instead of reading all of the pages and I only need to ask one question............how do you properly store them?? Laying down or straight up? I have no clue.

I just found info on Google. It said cap on, either horizontally or vertically is fine. If vertical, gel pens should be stored point facing down. This advice was by a person who has alot of gel pens so I'm trusting the information is correct. Hope this helps.
