It’s always fun getting ready to host a graphic facilitation workshop and I have one coming up Aug 15-16 in Prince George (a few spaces left in case you are keen). What I love is the opportunity to sift through my books, resources and extensive marker collection!
One of my marker favourites are the Neuland markers. I use a range of Number Ones and the Big Ones. I not only enjoy the wide nib and feel of the marker, what I particularly think is cool is that I can refill them. In the photo above you can see my marker is upside down and has a tiny hole in the top of the green circle. The bottle beside with the clear bulb on top is refill ink. Thus whenever you run out of ink you can fill the marker up. It feels really good to not throw away the marker (I do that with other ones that I really love despite feeling wasteful).
The refillable marker was also an incentive given the cost of buying these markers (they are imported from Germany). However, if you decide you do want to try them, the shipping fee is flat rate to a certain weight so you can share an order with friends or buy as much as you can within the weight limit! I bought refills for all my colours which has been handy. Though, after using the markers for several years I realize I should have bought more black ink refill. I love the black most 🙂
What are your favourite markers? Any recommendations I should share with the participants in Prince George?
