Diane S.
Cognitive Surplus gel pens

are now my go to for writing letters on black paper. The sets and names are creative, they're a pleasure to write with, and the colors are vibrant. The lighter colors show up best. I think I've tried all of them at this point — Flame Test, Lichen, Wildflower Meadow. Gems & Minerals is what got me hooked.
