I found a pen that works great for signing prints or canvases:   

https://www.createforless.com/Uchida-DecoColor-Extra-Fine-Set-3-pc.Gold--and--Silver/pid249292.aspx

On the same page there is a button on the right side to click to see many other colors and tip sizes, including black, white and lots of colors. I got the extra fine tip and think that that size is perfect for signing. Inexpensive, non-toxic, lead free, and color fast too! I mostly use gold, but sometimes the silver looks as good, depending on the print colors.

That's similar to what I use. I buy Sharpie, archival, silver markers to sign my giclees.

Have Fun,
Jeff

That's what I was using previous to the new pens Jeff - I find the Sharpies to be as little "weak" in their coloration compared to the DecoColors pens. The gold is really gold, and the silver is really silver, with complete opaqueness.

This one sounds good too, and the price is right:
