I usually use black inked pens but if I want to write something that needs not to be formal, I use violet because it looks cute. I only use black pens when I am in school.

I use both black and blue pens. Whenever it's August and the office supplies are on sale, my mother would go to Walmart or Office Depot and stock up on paper and pens. She would give me a bunch of pens that's both black and blue. I would prefer black because I think it's easier to read too but I just use whatever pen I pull out of my bag to write.

I use the black fine point pen, this is my favorite type pen. I have blue ones, I just do not like them to write with. I sometimes draw with them, and use them to color in with.

I like using pen with blue colour, that is my favorite colour. but ussually I use black colour just if I'm at my office. blue colour can make me remember about something.

I often use black colored pens. Just like you I have been using it for quite a time already. But sometimes I use red colored pens when I check some papers of my students. As you can see, I handles classes and when I check papers during exams, I use the red colored pens to emphasize my checking.

Mostly i use black ink since in filling up some important documents in our country it is mandatory to use black ink only. However if i write letters or make personalized cards for my friends and relatives, i use different colors depending on what the occasion calls for and who will be the recipient of the message. I love using different colors of gel pen.

Hi,alatecablebill. I have many pens that have so many colors. Right now, I am using a yellow pen that has black ink. And, I also have a purple pen that writes out purple ink. It is very neat. I like using colorful writing pens. I also like using black ink too.

I also use black colored pen most often. Though I carry a red one considering that I also use it for checking examination sheets considering that I conduct a class and often I correct them with my red color pen. But its usually the black one that I use the most.

I use different colors of pen. I have red, blue, black and green. I love using different colors when I write. I use black when I sign documents and for business transaction purposes. But for taking down notes or scribling something on my notebook, I use different colors. Have a good day.

I usually use a black pen and carry a red pen with me for like "highlighting" stuff. I like black more than blue because it's easier to read and black is more like how ink in printing looks. Also, it shows up under highlighter a lot better than blue ink.

I usually use pen with black and blue ink and these are used for any documents also so when buying them you are sure to be using them too. I prefer gel ink or simply ball pen for simple writings. As I love to write so there is nowhere in my house you will not find pen around.

I usually use black pens. Probably because black pens were always required when I was in school. The writing is also easier to see in black

Black too.My pens are all black color.Not only because black is easier to read,but also black color can keep my words last long...I like the carbon black,which keeps the words clear even the paper is wet.And it's a little more expensive than the normal black ink. Another problem is when the carbon black ink kept a long time in the pens without being writed,the ink will become dry,and I have to wash them everytime to have my pens filled with fresh ink but any other choices...those problem will not exist when I use the normal ink. beeduzhe

Mostly I use black one. My teachers prefer if students use black one to other colors. Sometimes, I use blue one if I don't bring any black pen. But my teachers don't allow students use red inked pen for tasks. It is not polite to do here when you write somethings with red inked pen.

To alatecablebill this is checkmail and often do carry an blue pen with me, just for some writting purpose.But when required for some official purpose i prefer to use black pen as its regarded as decent.But mostly like to go with the blue pen as its nice color and its also color of aqua.So i carry my pens according to the requirment of the occassion. Mostly in body style, like to get the small and slim ones, easy to pocket, or carry but not cheap.

Generally, I use blue ink, but I do also carry with me black inked pens. It is rare that I use any other color though.
