Sharpie Permanent Markers
We have seen these recommended on forums, so be warned! Although they will write on a gloss or lustre ink-jet media surface, they do not last! They are suitable for your DVDs and leaving notes for the window cleaner, but keep them well away from any fine art prints!

Sakura Pigma Micron Fineliners

These Dutch pens have a reputation for doing the business. They are reputed to be permanent and are available in a variety of nib diameters. The nibs are simple, rounded felt tips and so the signature lacks the style that might be produced by an italic dip nib. Ours took well on baryta but smeared on the surface of a proof label out of a Brother label printer. The lack of style would not matter if this type of pen was used for edition numbering only. As always, though, test on a scrap piece of paper first.
