Q. What type of pens would you suggest for preserving family history in a scrapbook or journal?
A. A set of high-quality pigment-ink pens for writing photo captions and journaling in your scrapbook is perhaps the best investment you can make to preserve your family history. Pigment ink typically resists fading and bleeding better than the dye inks used in many colored pens and markers. Though pens are often labeled “acid-free,” don’t let yourself be misled — ink can be acid-free and still bleed or fade in a short period of time.
