non-photo

A very pale blue that is invisible to a camera or photo­copier. A non-photo pen or pencil may be used to make notes on an original: paper may be printed with a non-photo blue grid to allow for easy line-up. In either case, as copiers become more sensitive, you should advise your customer to test these products first.

I have used Dynasty brushes for along time, maybe ten years? I need some new brushes. I like this brand and want to stay with this brand. I would give them a 5 star rating.

I have used these pens for many years. They are so much more convenient than cartridge pens and work very well. You can take them with you, as I do for sales work and Thank You notes. I'd recommend them for anyone. Just be sure they are fully closed like any felt tip.
