Pen & Marker Organizers for home or travel

Do you always craft in the same place? If so, you need easily accessible, visible marker organizers that have a permanent home in your workspace.

If you like to move your markers, pens and pencils around, maybe just around your home, maybe to crops or classes you need organizers that can be used at home but then easily packed up to move around.  Are you dropping them into your crop tote, or just grabbing them so you can color on a short road trip?

I've given examples below for each of the organizers we make that are designed for pens, pencils and/or markers.  Think about how you are most likely to use yours and then choose the right organizer for your crafting life.

Stationary, at home pen, pencil & marker organizers.

If you ONLY craft at home and have a permanent place in your workspace for pens, pencils and markers try these solutions.

From our Desk Maid product line - the 9" Pen & Ink Palace, 15" Pen & Ink Palace or the Pencil Perch could be the ideal solution.

The Pen & Ink Palace designs are identical in every aspect except their width.  They each have 5 staggered, slide out trays.

The Pencil Perch is a great solution for coloring or drawing at home.  Pencils are visible and accessible.

Rhea from Passionate Paper Creations used 3 Pencil Perches to organize her colored pencils.  Read more from Rhea...

Organizers that can be stuffed onto a shelf

Need to be able to stash your double-tipped markers away, but still store them flat?  There are a couple of Fab File boxes that are perfect for this type of storage.

The 8x8 Fab File is great for a mix of markers.  Long enough for Tombow and Artist Loft, but also good for Copic, Spectrum or Colorista.

The 5x7 Fab File is the perfect height for Spectrum, Colorista, or Copic. Stand it up for easy access, store it on it's end.

Organizers that are easy to move around

As I mentioned earlier,  how and where you use your supplies should dictate the types of organizers you choose.  If you're dropping things into your tote that you can pull out and put away at event - try the Debra, Denise or Terri Buddy Bag.

Want to be able to color in the TV room, on a plane or during a road trip?  The Colorkeeper Stand & Store is ideal.  There is a large pocket on the back of the Colorkeeper that will hold your Rotating Design Board, color book or sketch pad.

The Colorkeeper folds flat for storage, but folds into a stand for use. It has 24 pockets and will accommodate 72 colored pencils, or 24-48 markers and pens.

For air travel, fold the two levels of the Colorkeeper flat and tuck it into the seat back pocket - easy access to all of your pencils, but no rolling around.

  1. In the 4 piece set I purchased earlier this year there was a pen holder with 5 compartments with shelves on a slight slant down in the back. I want to purchase more of this style but cannot find it anywhere. Will you be producing more of this item. Nothing else comes close-they are not deep enough for my tombow markers, etc. Appreciate it. Bec
