What do you all use? I'm thinking photo paper but I'd rather have something in a small notebook or similar item. Any ideas, and links, would be great. Thanks.

It's a messy product that will get stuff all over your fingers. I was disappointed with it and moved on. I've yet to meet anyone who used that tool more than a week after purchase. You may be an exception.

You could go to an office store and try different weights of paper. Once you find one you like, have them make a notepad out of it.

My best suggestion is that you go to your wastebasket, find the crumpled pieces of paper inside, and put your Super Sharpie beneath them. Take the trash out to the curb and resist the temptation to retrieve the Sharpie.
The secret of deception is in making the truth seem ridiculous.

Don't you get an audible "squeak" sound on some papers? I would think it would need to have some gloss on it. Perhaps I'm just doing it wrong.

I would think that sharpie would smear easily on glossy stock. But, then again, I'd never use an ink writer of any sort. No way of knowing when it's going to run out of ink- but when it does it will be at the worst possible time.

Grease pencil or China marker leads are far superior and easily seen from a distance.

Some people seem to think that pencils or china markers are somehow suspicious. But I would think that using glossy paper would really seem a bit odd.

Glossy back is best. I just order my buz cards with glossy backs..no sound and no mess. Again, write on the card not on your fingers! LOL

Simple, then. Don't use it at the worst possible time. Problem solved. Smile
