Knowledge of marking pens

Writing distance

The writing distance varies depending on the type, but it is said that the longest writing is about 1000m in a fine pen and about 100 to 150 m of the highlighter when becoming short.
The pen tip and the amount of ink, the state of the writing speed and the writing surface are related considerably, but it might be good to remember as a rough guide. Let’s think about the writing speed and distance. If you write slowly the ink enters a wide range of depth, the distance is shortened, and if you write early, narrow and shallow width, the writing distance extends. Writing distance varies greatly depending on how you write.
In the case of the batting type, it can be said that it is fast when there is plenty of ink, and if it decreases slowly, the density becomes near. We are doing this kind of thing unconsciously.
