I couldn't recall the name of the outfit I bought my last set of pens from.  This
outfit looks pretty good, though:


Get ready for sticker shock!  I THINK that the ceramic tipped pens are disposable
liquid ink pens.  If so, then they can be refilled with standard drawing ink.  I'll
be interested in hearing how these guys are, if you get pens from them.  I notice
that they offer X-Y plotter pens.  I just acquired a NICE HP X-Y plotter that works
perfectly.  I plan to hook it to my gamma spectrometer and make it useful again. Sure
would love to find a ramp generator for the plotter.

The best paper that I found for my desktop flatbed plotter was about 15 or 20 lb
calendared paper.  This is the clay-filled shiny paper like magazines are printed on.
The paper that you want is heavier like the stuff that coffee table magazines and
books are printed on.  I got mine from a local print shop.
