Marker Storage Verdict – Crafters Companion

I finally got my hands on the marker storage by Crafters Companion, having tried so many I was sceptical whether or not this system would work for me but it truly didn’t disappoint me.


However I did want it to store my FlexMarkers by Letraset and as these pens are shorter and fatter than Spectrum Noirs, Copics, Twin Touch etc. I was worried that they may not fit so good.

Actually they did fit perfectly the only issue I had was they where a little difficult to get hold of the ones in the middle to pull them out of the tray.

So my thinking cap came out, I needed something to stop the Markers going to the very back of the tray so that I had a little bit extra to grab hold of.

My answer came from the pound shop

Draft excluder tape, self adhesive and high density cut into little strips and stuck at the back of each compartment, works beautifully.

All neat and tidy and easy to get out.

You can see the excluder tape in each compartment in this picture.

What a brilliant idea!! I have all kinds of different pens waiting to be the moment i only have my spectrum noirs in these trays. But now that I have seen all of your Flexmarkers stored beautifully I am inspired and will start saving up to get some more :)

Oh my, how amazing they all look nice and neat, and how much easier to just find the perfect color for your project.

Great idea on the extender using the tape.

Hugs, Lori m

I have seen these & could really do with them coz I have so many promarkers now. BUT, i do not have my own craft room, so would have nowhere to keep them at easy reach!! boo hoo.

Oooh, clever! I think I might need these for all my pens too, if I can just find somewhere to put them in my dumping ground of an office! :)
