    Different types of pens produce lines with different characteristics and different uses, but pens can be broadly separated into a few different categories, including dip pens, fountain pens, felt tips, ball points, rollerballs, and gel pens. SKETCH even carries an inkless pen now, which uses a special metal alloy that leaves a fine trace of the material when written with to produce a mark.

    Different types of artists’ pens can have very different qualities. The pressure applied while writing with a fountain or dip pen, for example, can be varied as a person is using it to create a line with fluctuating widths, whereas a felt tip or gel pen will have a more even and consistent line. The shape of a pen’s tip or “nib” will also affect the shape of the line it produces, which is why chisel points or brush tips are used for calligraphy while fine points are used for technical drawing.
