Whatever type of pen you get, just make sure it is "acid free" ink.  This will keep it from fading over time and degrading the pages of your photo book.

You can also make your pens look fun by attaching flowers or feathers to the end like we did.  People complimented them a lot and it helped to keep people from accidentally walking off with them.

We did a Blurb guestbook, too.  At Micheal’s they have a big array of "acid-free" pens, like what MrsK2be suggested.  They come in a ton of different colors.  They are in the scrapbooking aisle.  Anyway, if you love Sharpie’s I think they should aslo work, but you could always try it out in the back of your book first to make sure the ink doesn’t bleed through.

I did a Blurb book and used ultra fine tipped permanent markers in a variety of colors. They didn’t bleed through, probably because they’re so fine tipped. The ones I have are Foray, which I think is the store brand of Office Max or something. If I’d thought about it more, the scrapbooking acid-free ones would have been great too!

You could have a page made that is like a buffer on the other side so it doesnt seep through to the next page. Just keep it on the other side of the paper.

FYI I think sharpies may fade over time. Try to use an archival quality art pen/maker from a craft or art supply store…
