I bet we use more ink pens than most other professions. Filling out field note sheets, drawing floor plans, and affixing our almighty, grand signatures to hard copies. So----- what kind of pen do you prefer, especially for your signature? Does everyone also use blue ink (to demonstrate an original signature)? I like the gel ink pens the best. Medium to fine point (never Extra Fine). Does anyone have a favorite pen for signatures?

I don't use a pen too much.

About the only thing I use a pen for is to endorse the check.
I use pencials in the field, I need the eraser, for my floor plan. I stopped buying the refill lead pencils, I loose them too much. I buy the normal kids #2 pencils.

Digital signature.

Like Lee, mostly a pencil. I too keep losing the mechanical ones (probably all in my oldest daughter's room somewhere), so often revert to the regular #2. They are usually ones that have floated home from school, so :oops: sometimes I'm at an inspection with a Barbie or Pokemon pencil. :oops: Hey, if it's got a tip and an eraser, we're good to go.

For hard copy reports, I sign in green gel pen. Colored due to identifying an original. Green because my company's name is Evergreen.

I use a blue Paper Mate Flair with the 1.1 mm point.
It doesn't slow me down, and gives a broad and
narrow look with different pressure and it makes
my signature look like John Hancocks. On stuff
that I've been nervous about I've encluded the
line, "True and original copies of report are signed
in blue ink."

These are very deeeeeep discussions! Very important, as well!!

I use whatever finds it way to my desk drawer - usually free ones from companies wanting me to order some with my company name on them.

I really prefer electronic signatures :lol:

Alright, it's Friday afternoon and I'm about done for the day....I use a gold Cross pen engraved with my name (it was a gift), medium black ink. Someone once told me to use blue ink so it can be identified as an original, but I hate blue ink. Ok, anything else?

As this day slows down, I come here to report in:

I only use a pencil for on site inspections). I do not erase... EVER..!

--I use the Japanese-made Sandford "uni-ball" roller ball pen 0.3mm fine in black ink. [I buy them by the box @ $6.75 + tax for a dozen]

--For signing original hard-copy appraisal documents, I use Paper Mate medium blue felt tip.

--For electronic signature, oh well...
