Medium Pens

SORT BY:
With a variety of choices available, choosing the right pen for daily tasks can be a challenge. A medium-tip pen offers an average line width, which is ideal for signatures, jotting down notes, or simply scribbling on a page.

Focusing on Penmanship With a Medium-Tip Pen
There are four basic types of medium-tipped pens. These include ballpoint, rollerball, fountain, and gel. Ballpoint pens have quick-drying ink that resists smudging as your hand moves across the page. They deliver precise lines, which are perfect for detailing, and they have an extended lifespan to save money. Rollerball pens lay down a thicker line of ink and take longer to dry. They also bring bold and vibrant color, which works well for presentations. For a unique combination of both ballpoint and rollerball, gel pens offer thick ink but dry quickly.

For those who practice calligraphy or other forms of decorative writing and have a light hand, fountain pens feature different tips and replaceable ink cartridges, which let you customize your signature.

Understanding the Possibilities of a Medium-Tip Pen
Aside from the basic types, pens come in many options. Retractable pens offer a one-hand operation while pens with detachable caps keep the writing end sealed for lasting use. Pens with stainless steel tips provide smooth and consistent writing for adding a signature to documents. You will also find many different color choices to inject personality to a journal or notebook.

Refillable pens save money and allow you to switch out the color of the ink as desired. Attach pens with clips to a backpack pocket or affix them to the inside of a binder or notepad for easy carrying and to reduce the likelihood of loss. Select pens with clear barrels so you can monitor the level of the ink to know when you need to switch to a new one.

What Is the Optimal Color Medium-Tip Pen for Signing Contracts?
Use blue pens to sign official documents and contracts unless otherwise stated. It's often hard to distinguish if a signature written in black ink is authentic, but blue stands out well against copied print and the medium tip delivers an easy-to-read signature. Some documents state at the top of the page which ink to use, so be sure to read any instructions before filling out forms.

Can You Purchase Medium-Tip Pens in Bulk?
Staples® carries a selection of multipack pens for busy office or warehouse use. Individuals may opt to purchase pens in small blister packages to reduce waste. Packages of 24 or more offer cost savings and ensure you always have extras on hand.

What Is the Most Versatile Type of Medium-Tip Pen for Drawing?
The type of pens used in drawing depends on the user. Artists often prefer ballpoint pens over other pens because they offer clean and smudge-free lines. Some opt for gel pens due to their bold color choices, including gels, metallic, and even glitter options. They last a long time and come in both disposable and refillable varieties. Gel pens also work on both light and dark writing surfaces for added versatility.
