Bold Markers

I made friends with my big Sharpie Fine Point marker; I need contrast to discern my writing. I label file folders in block lettering. I scribble the date on things I open from the fridge, or tag leftovers in plastic bags. Reading an expiration date or small point font requires some magnifier hunting and gathering. Pass.

I use a felt tip pen to write notes and letters. Again, I look for contrast against white paper. Felt tip pens don’t bleed through paper like Sharpies do, either.

I missed writing on paper when I gained low vision. Eventually, I realized thicker pens skirt the limitation. I love sending things the old-fashioned way: in the mail. I stalk neat stamps for future cards, too. I’m a nerd like that. Don’t judge. Have you seen the bonsai tree stamps? Love those.

    Have you tried 20/20 pens? They tend to not bleed through paper as much as sharpies. They can be purchased at maxi aids or independent living aids.

    1. Anon: No, I have not tried the 20/20 pens yet since the felt tip pen was working out. I plan to try them in the future though. Thanks for the advice!
