Each Marvy DecoColor sun-resistant, waterproof pen contains acrylic "paint" that adheres well to our IDeal™ plastic nameplates. We offer these paint pens in fine and extra fine tips and several colors. Here are some pros and cons of paint pens versus our durable plant labels or engraved nameplates:
Pros: inexpensive, convenient, adds a personal touch to your garden, available in multiple colors. You can purchase a pen with a solvent that allows you to erase the paint pen and start over and continue to use the same marker for new plants, mistakes, etc. Some customers hand write on the back side of their markers additional information or to serve as insurance if anything happens to the front side.
Cons: require good handwriting, possibility of mistakes, lack of formatting (bold, italics), more difficult to read/write small text
