Mobile Best pen for autograph collecting

Hi guys,
Just looking for recommendations on what pen to use for collecting autographs. We are doing lots of character meals with our DDs (ages 6 and 9).Ive heard that a fatter type pen is better for the characters to hold. What have you found worked well? Thanks

A lot of people say Sharpies. We bought the large pens available in all the Disney shops.

The fatter Sharpie pens are easier for many of the characters to hold.

We had a gold and silver sharpie with us. These worked really well and have a nice shimmer

We took the fatter pens to character dining as Pooh, Tigger etc find them much easier to hold in their 'paws' but also had smaller one for the Princesses. We buy them on site so the kids can choose their own, depending on their favourites. Have a great trip

I really like the idea of the gold or silver, but I don't like sharpies as the tend to bleed through the page...is that a problem?

On our previous trips I bought a pen from paperchase that has been great.



It worked brilliantly.

Weve used sharpies. Last time we went I got the big pack from Tesco with about 20 colours and matched the colour to the character (orange for tigger, purple for Rapunzel etc). We bought the autograph books at Disney and didnt find bleeding to be an issue
