Buyer's Guide

A Buyer’s Guide to Purchasing Marker Pens

As recently as a few years ago, markers were mostly employed by graphic designers and comic artists to create artwork. Serious painters who cared about their work's long-term viability avoided using markers because of their poor fade resistance. With the advent of online art, however, more and more artists have discovered the incredible adaptability and vibrant color options that markers offer.

Markers have found a place in the creative process for a wide range of artists. Markers are ideal for travel, plein-air studies, and urban sketching since they are easy to use and dry rapidly. 

Markers are ideal for doodling, sketching, and gestural drawing because of their ease of application of color. In addition to being able to create photo-realistic images, markers can also be used to create abstract works of art.

The adult coloring craze has also boosted the popularity of markers in recent years. Colorists appreciate the large selection of colors and the variety of tip shapes available. As a result of this increased demand, the number of marker items available on the market has skyrocketed. A plethora of markers implies that you may find one that fits your needs and your budget.

Characteristics of a Marker Pen

Shape of the Tip

First, you'll need to determine what type of tip shape or nib you prefer, as the form of the tip considerably affects your coloring experience. Here's a quick rundown of your available choices. Some manufacturers use the term "fine tip" to refer to a tip that's more like a bullet tip, but others use the term "fine tip."

  • Brush tip

Brushes can be smoothed to fill in big areas or used to make tiny strokes (ideal for fine detail work). The brush tip can also be used to make a variety of different-width strokes. There are several brands that allow you to replace the tips of your brush pens if they wear out.

  • Chisel tip

Many manufacturers use the same chisel tip. Because of this, you can use various edges for different reasons. While the wide, flat side is ideal for laying down a large amount of color, the sharp side is ideal for creating finer strokes of paint.

  • Fine tip

This is exactly what an architect's technical pen would look like. Precise points and patterning are a breeze with these tips, but huge blocks of color are a challenge.

  • Bullet tip

There are a lot of cheap marker sets that come with a bullet tip. An excellent all-around technique, but one that isn't very adaptable in terms of small details or filling in big regions of color.

  • Double-end markers

You may have the perfect combination with these double-ended markers! Ink is stored in a central reservoir, and the points are located on either side of the reservoir. A brush and a chisel tip are the two most common types of tips on high-quality alcohol-based markers, but some also come with a bullet tip and a chisel at the other end.

Types of Markers

  • Fiber markers

Fiber markers can be used in a variety of ways. They can be used to draw thick or thin lines on paper by increasing or decreasing the amount of pressure applied. Using a fiber tip marker, ink flows without interruption and is rarely clogged. Writing or drawing may be done with ease.

  • Markers that can be erased

In order to avoid being consumed by the writing surface, erasable markers are intended to cling to the writing surface. These markers are used on slide projectors and marker boards in schools. To remove erasable markers from a marker board or projector slide, just wipe a cloth over the area with the eraser. This ensures that the writing surface may be used again.

  • Authentication Markers

Ultraviolet light is the only light that can view the security markers. The owner of a stolen object can use a UV flashlight to validate his claim to the item when it is recovered.

Range of Colors

Color range is crucial since it helps you create better tonal gradation with your mixing techniques. As a result, you're able to use a wide range of colors to seamlessly transition from one hue to the next.

To get the broadest color range, you should use alcohol-based markers, which may be obtained in bulk (one at a time). Having a color chart handy is a good idea after purchasing markers.

Alcohol-based Marker Pens VS. Water-based Marker Pens

You might want to start using artist-quality markers and experiment with both water-based and alcohol-based markers to see which one works best for your needs. 

Even though reading about markers online can be beneficial, it's crucial to test them out yourself to get a better idea of how they operate and which ones you favor. Open stock and small sets are available for both sorts of markers, so you don't have to break the bank to play with them.

Everywhere you look, you'll find water-based markers, most typically in those inexpensive sets for kids, but you can also get painter's water-based markers that are quite versatile. 

Water-based markers work best in coloring books because they don't bleed through the paper as much. There is a risk of warping or damaging the paper if you use too much color. For hand-lettering, water-based markers are also quite popular.

Because they blend more seamlessly and consistently (see image below), alcohol-based markers (also known as "permanent markers") are commonly used by artists. This is because you may layer colors to create various hues, tints, and ombré effects. To avoid bleeding through the page, use only one side of the book when coloring. 

Price of Marker Pens

Water-based markers are less expensive, whereas alcohol-based markers are more expensive. In return, you'll get better quality dyes, better blending, and a wider selection to choose from, as well as the ability to replenish and replace tips.

Due to the fact that some stores often offer large discounts that change from the listed price, I'm not going to provide prices here. In general, another different type of marker pen costs approximately a dollar each, but artist-quality alcohol markers can cost anywhere from $3 to $7 per marker, depending on the brand (less if you get a set).

However, the majority of water-based markers cannot be replenished, so they have to be thrown away when they run out or the tip gets destroyed. You may, however, acquire some high-quality artist markers for as little as $2 to $5 each.


Anyone who enjoys drawing or underlining passages in their books or notes for study may benefit from having a set of marker pens. 

The most important component in their decision-making process is selecting products that are of the highest quality while still being the most affordable. Additionally, you have the option of selecting from a range of diverse hues that you prefer or find appealing.

We hope that this article will assist you in determining which type of marker pen you want and whether or not it is worthwhile to spend your money on one.


What are marker pens used for?

Felt-tip pens, or markers, can be used for a variety of purposes. Colorful drawings are made with them by children. To grade papers, the stereotypical instructor employs a bright red felt-tip pen.

Using these writing and sketching implements, retailers, roadside vendors, performers, and demonstrators can proclaim sales, prices, productions, or displeasure with their goods and services with the indelible ink and thick inking surface. 

Markers can also be used to permanently mark surfaces, such as clothes tags, boxes, and tape that can be applied to practically any item. This is often important for identification purposes.

What are marker pens made of?

Plastic resin is used to make the marker's body, cap, and plugs. Polyester is used to create the marker's ink reservoir. The felt writing tip is made by mixing powder with water and letting it sit for a while. 

To use a marker, you'll need ink, which includes pigments and synthetic materials. However, these chemicals are still employed to generate the indelible ink found in permanent markers even though they are no longer commonly used as dye solvents due to their toxin nature. Cyclic alkylene carbonates have taken their place as a safer alternative. 

The dye is diluted in a solvent, which is a different material. Ink, like many other liquids, is soluble in water. Wetting agents can also be incorporated into an ink mixture through the use of additives.

Are marker pens bad for the environment?

Disposing of individual markers can be done as any other home garbage, but manufacturers must pay special attention to the removal of excess ink. Ink is typically not subject to strict environmental rules because it does not include harmful compounds, but there is a unique disposal requirement. 

Discharging anything that will change the color of the water in a sewer system is against federal law. A drain cannot be used to dispose of liquid ink, so it must be mixed with an absorbent material and thrown off like solid waste.

It is also important to note that if any of the ink's constituents are hazardous waste because of their toxicity, they must be disposed of in accordance with federal and state hazardous waste rules.

How do marker pens work?

As a general rule, marker ink is alcohol-based, and they are typically constructed of plastic. Allows the marker's work to dry fast and eliminates the risk of the ink spreading where it isn't intended. Vintage markers that are acid-free can be valuable for events that need to be preserved for decades. Weddings and graduation cards are examples of special occasions that warrant a card.

Marker size is a good indicator of its intended use. Color in coloring books, doodle on paper, or create visual art at school with medium-tip markers. When it comes to civilized activities, such as writing down thoughts or signing checks, fine-tipped markers are ideal. Highlighters are commonly referred to as wide-tipped markers. 

Students and adults conducting research employ the latter. It is possible to apply a highlighter overwritten or typed text without entirely obscuring the writing with the highlighter. In order to draw the eye and reference vital information, it is designed in this way. The giant marker, with its huge tip, is the final type of marker to be discussed. If you want to write on something other than paper, this is the size to use.
