Stabilo-All Pencils

  • Application

    Writing on the backs of contemporary photographs can be tricky because they usually have a polyethylene surface. Conservators advise against using marking or ink pens, as they can transfer and are not reversible. Standard #2 graphite pencils work well on paper-backed photos, but not on plastic-coated surfaces. That’s why Archival Methods offers Stabilo marking pencils, which are excellent for marking photos or other glossy surfaces.

  • Features

    Stabilo-All Pencils will allow you to write clearly and legibly on the backs of photographs, as well as on glass and metal surfaces. Stabilo marking pencils are water soluble and can be wiped off of smooth surfaces with a damp cloth, or erased easily when used on paper.

    (Note: When writing with Stabilo-All pencils, remember to work on a clean, hard surface and apply a light touch. This helps you avoid pressure transfer, which may cause the writing to be visible on the image side. It is also always best to write near the edges of your images - not in the middle - to be safe.)
