These gel highlighters work very well without bleeding through thin paper. They go on with a thin waxy feel, no wetness at all, and overnight the slight waxy feel disappears. After that, the highlighting isn't even detectable to the touch. I used to use a yellow crayon or pale colored pencil, but these work even better. These translucent colors are pretty and could probably be used for illustrations if you wanted. Some are darker than others, but the print is readable through the colors I've tried so far (yellow, green, pink). The yellow one is the most subtle of the three I've tried.
These and an extra fine (005 or 01) Pigma Micron pen are all I use in my journaling Bible. No bleed-through and only the barest of ghosting.
There are two different kinds of Bible markers....and this is the WRONG marker.
You want the YC Bible Hi-Glider Gel Marker. Please do not be deceived.....make certain that the YC is on the Gel marker that you order.
I made the mistake of ordering this type , without the YC and they are junk. The purple, green and blue are way too light and they all arrived dry and crumbling. Each time I tried to use them I had to use a kleenex to wipe them off on the ends because they were all crumbly and would get peices all over the pages of my bible. UGH!
Now i make certain that I purchase only YC Bible Hi-Glider Gel Markers!
AMAZING - writes on Kleenex! And doesn't bleed through!

I have been trying for years to find the perfect highlighters for my Bible study...ALL of them bleed through - no matter what the package might say. Thinking I'd try these and they would be just the same, I ordered a set. Received them and pulled one out to notice they looked different. I tried a small mark on a back index page in my Bible...INCREDIBLE! It wasn't overly bright, but highlighted well and I couldn't even tell from the other side.
I gave a set to my Pastor who was also amazed and immediately started coloring a verse. They are so smooth I even tried writing on a Kleenex....it went on smoothly and didn't show through to the 2nd ply. These are amazing and I doubt that I will ever again try to use anything else. !!!!!
