A gel pen uses ink in which pigment is suspended in a water-based gel. Because the ink is thick and opaque, it shows up more clearly on dark surfaces. The ink is often more permanent than liquid inks. Gel pens are available in a broad range of colours that can be bright, pastel, opalescent,
metallic and glittery.
Craft Chest offers a variety of gel pens from Pergamano, Pilot and Q Connect. Gel pens combine the best attributes of a roller ball, with the performance of a ballpoint.
