2. What is a ballmarker and how does it work?
A ballmarker is a flexible plastic bottle that screws into a ball valve writing head. Ink flows through the hardened metal ball to work like an industrial ball-point pen. It leaves an opaque, permanent and bright mark on surfaces that would ruin a felt nib which makes it ideal for heavy duty industrial use. It can be used with Signet DO ink or XDO ink.
3. What type of crayons do you have?
There are 3 types of crayons available to offer an ink-free marking alternative. Lumber crayons are used mostly for marking timber, but are also useful for government applications, engineering and construction.Andy crayons are for use in damp and refrigerated conditions on timber, leather, glass, tyres and waxed cartons. There are fluoro options available as the colour is sensor recognisable with some automatic saws and dockers.Meat marking crayons are designed for marking meat or hides. Blue and red are the colours available which are both approved for export.
4. Do you have the M10 pen and ink?
Yes. Signet’s M10 pen is basically a durable metal barrel which houses a felt nib. Ink is poured into the M10 pen for long-term dependable marking.

Two types of ink can be used with the M10 pen – A ink and T ink. The A ink is for marking on porous surfaces like timber while the T ink is for non-porous surfaces such as plastic.
