The Best Pens for Signing Guestbooks

Your special event is one of the most important and memorable moments in your life, and you want every detail to be perfect. From the decorations to the guestbook, every aspect of your event reflects your personal style and taste. And that includes the pen you use to sign your guestbook, whether it's for a wedding, a baby shower, a graduation, or any other special occasion.

Choosing the right pen may seem like a small detail, but it can make a big impact on the overall look and feel of your guestbook. That's why we've put together this guide to help you select the perfect pen for your special event guestbook.

In this post, we'll discuss a few things to keep in mind when picking the perfect pen for signing your guestbook. From the type of pen to the ink colour and tip size, we'll cover everything you need to know to make an informed decision. So whether you're going for a classic and elegant look or something more modern and trendy, we've got you covered. Let's dive in!

How to select a pen for signing guestbooks

You want to ensure that the messages and notes your guests share are as beautiful as the sentiments they are sharing. Here are some things to keep in mind to ensure that you choose a pen that meets all of your needs:

Smooth Ink Flow

You'll want the ink to flow straight away, smoothly. Nothing is more frustrating than a pen that requires too much pressure to write, causing your handwriting to look shaky and unprofessional. Consider the Deluxe Cambridge Pen, which offers a tungsten carbide ball for improved writing quality, ensuring a smooth and effortless writing experience without the need for extra pressure.

No Bleed-Through

The ink shouldn't bleed through to the other side of the page (or even the page below!). Choose a pen with a fine tip that won't cause ink to leak onto other pages or make your handwriting illegible. The Deluxe Cambridge Pen's fine tip and high-quality German manufactured Dokumental ink ensure no bleed-through, making it perfect for the uncoated 200gsm card pages in our guestbook.

Fast-Drying Ink

The faster the ink dries, the less it will smudge, and the better it'll look. Especially if you have some left-handed guests. The Deluxe Cambridge Pen's ink dries quickly, preventing smudges and ensuring your guests' heartfelt messages remain pristine.

Crisp Tip

You want the tip of the pen to stay crisp and clean. The thicker the tip, the bigger the handwriting. Choose a pen with a fine tip that will keep your handwriting sharp and legible, even as you write for an extended period. The Deluxe Cambridge Pen's fine tip ensures your writing remains clear and easy to read, preserving the elegance of your guestbook.

If you like the look of a thicker felt-tip pen, you will need to consider how the tip will last. The thicker tips tend to blunt quickly which leads to a thicker stroke that can be harder to read.

Matching Pen Barrel Color

It would be nice if the ink matches the colour scheme of the event. This will add an extra touch of elegance and sophistication to your guestbook. The Deluxe Cambridge Pen is available in Silver, Gold, Rose Gold, and Gunmetal colours, allowing you to choose one that complements the colour scheme of your event perfectly.

Stylish Design

The pen should look as good as the guestbook does. The Deluxe Cambridge Pen's twist-action brass ball pen design, electroplated finish, and decorative guilloche engraved lines on the lower barrel create a stylish and sophisticated appearance that complements the theme and feel of your event.

Best Pens for Signing Guestbook Pages

After extensive testing we picked a 200gsm matte white card for our internal guestbook pages. This means that your guests can sign without the worry of ink bleeding through to the other side of the page. While unlined white pages are the most popular option, we also offer lined pages, and black unlined pages.

The Deluxe Cambridge Pen is the perfect companion for signing your guestbook- whether you choose the classic silver, striking gunmetal, luxe gold or the elegant rose gold to pair with your guestbook, the Deluxe Cambridge Pen will become a cherished keepsake of your special day.

We know how important it is to capture all the love and well wishes from your guests, so we've also put together our 5 top tips to ensure your guestbook is filled with heartfelt messages from all your loved ones.
