You definitely want to use a matte paint, as opposed to glossy. Spray paint could work well and give you really even coverage. I would suggest using a fine sharpie pen.

@bmarielo:  Agree with PP. You’ll definitely want to finish it first with matte paint so the Sharpie won’t bleed into the wood grain. If you want a glossy finish, you can clear coat it with some poly varnish.

@bmarielo:  maybe once it’s all signed, you can spray a clear coat over it to seal it?

This is what I want! Where di you get this from?

 

Also, I was reading up on it and everyone suggested you seal it after the wedding 🙂

I found a chisel tip paint pen for wood and paper at Michaels. It’s acrylic so it shouldn’t fade with time, and it was super easy to use. I’d do 2-3 base coats and maybe even sannd it down first so it’s smooth.

Great suggestions! I am having a single letter initial for my guests to sign as well and I am worried that if it is glossy paint, the marker will smudge.

I am planning on sealing it after the wedding and hanging it in our house, so hopefully that will help with fading too?
