Writing on wood and painting over it?

Postby tommyb13 » Fri Mar 23, 2018 6:13 pm


I have a quick question about writing on wood. At work we label wooden plywood panels by hand with marker pens as we cut them. Later on we have to paint over these markings... which can be a right pain in the ar*e! Is there a well known pen to use that is easily painted over?

We need the writing to stay on through thick and thin and be very easy to read. Water soluble pens have been suggested however I have concerns that they would rub off over time. The panels do get handled a fair amount and they live in a pretty dusty environment.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Many thanks!
