    There is! A fountain pen filled with Spotone. Trouble is, Spotone is not archival (according to Ansel Adams, or at least he had his doubts), but regular China Ink is very archival, so that would work.

    At least some markers bleed ugly with time. I'd stick to pencils.

    Some markers fade even though they claim to be permanent or archival. Maybe the have not figured out the light can fade some inks.

    Is pencil archival? Really? Yes I know all about sp2 carbon and it's wonderful properties, but, there is this 'eraser' technology....

    Hehehe....if you've ever tried to fully erase a pencil mark on a mat board, you'll remember that it's one tough smudge to get rid of. I use a harder #2H pencil that makes a much lighter mark, but even at that, it isn't easy to fix an error. (2H pencils are available at art supply stores for those who sketch.)

    Fair enough, I've never written on mat board, I just initial on the print itself. But I suspect that tape will take graphite off of almost anything; I could be wrong...
