Promarker Storage - version 3

Hi again, I've made a great discovery and now that I've checked it out (on your behalf of course) I can share it with you... I've been trying to find an affordable solution for storing promarkers. Now I am a very very lucky girl and have 2 complete sets of promarkers, 1 set that comes with me to demonstrations and classes and another set that stays at home for my personal use. 
Up until now the second set has been in a big cardboard box until I found a suitable desktop storage solution, but today I have found the answer!
You can buy this here. It's being sold as storage for Touché  markers, but it works for Promarkers, Trias and probably other types of markers too. And the best bit, in my opinion the price is £12 + VAT + p&p - fabulous value for money.
Now that I have it in my possession I can tell you that it's very sturdy, the outer carcass is 12mm thick mdf with removable partitions. You can of course decorate it to suit your craft space too 
- I will get round to this eventually.


So here's what it looks like with promarkers in-situ (as well as a few sneaky trias)


As you can see, it's plenty deep enough for the promarkers, and even with the ultra-fine nibs fitted, they wouldn't jut out very far.
Just hope I have time soon to decorate it :)

Debbi, This storage unit is fab - just visited the site and they have a great range of craftie goodies so now on my fav list!! Think I may need to get one (no I want one) when I move into my new craft room! Sheila:)X

Annette said...

This is just fab, and so reasonably priced. Can I also ask what stickers have you used on the ends for the colours? I used sticky labels cut into little dots like you seem to have used, but because the lids are acrylic-like the stickers would not stick and just popped off again. Please help !!!

Looks brilliant - I've just sorted my little collecction into one of those portable CD cases......but think I saw Letraset say they will be bringing out more colours of ProMarkers. This allows for expansion which is so useful. It looks superbly sturdy too.

Brilliant - will need to get a hold of one of these. As for decorating it, if you're anything like me it will keep getting moved down on the 'to do' list as other projects take precedence :) Elizabeth x

Gawd Debbi, not long bought CD case!! Must say thinbk I would get on better with this box, get in such a muddle with the CD box. Must go and have a nosey. Carolxx

Petra said...

Hi Debbi,

I had a look on the website and the box only comes with the markers, so I gave them a call and they said they don't sell the box separately. How have you managed to get one?

Cheers
Petra
