Fabric Markers

Fabric markers are one way to customize most types of material, including cotton and canvas with colorful pictures, lettering, and drawings. These markers are made with permanent ink that is resistant to fading and smearing once dry. They come in several different sizes and an array of colors. Staples® carries a selection of fabric pens and other arts and crafts materials.

Choosing Fabric Markers for Work or Home
A simple solution for creating one or two items, fabric pens are easy to use and provide an inexpensive method for creating custom designs. Add a custom message to a shirt for birthday parties as a unique way to say happy birthday. You can also paint a picture on a tote or book bag as an easy way of identifying the item.

Add an inspirational message to a throw pillow to brighten someone's day. Print custom drawings on a sheet as a way to display artwork in a prominent location. Color on canvas shoes to generate a one-of-a-kind style. You can also draw on a lampshade, curtains, or standard canvas as a way to decorate a room. Use these markers with rubber stamps or stencils for adding detailed designs.

Considering the Options for Fabric Markers
Choose from a variety of different markers to suit your particular craft. Fine tips work well for outlines and detailing, while broad tips make it easy to color in large areas. Markers with brush tips provide the feel of painting, which is ideal for use on canvas. Dual-tip markers have a thin tip on one side and a broad tip on the other, so you can choose which tip suits your needs. The two main types of ink for fabric pens are water-based ink or gel-based ink. Both are quick drying for a quick application and are non-toxic for safety. Opt for heat-set markers for lasting color or select non-heat set markers for school crafts.

How Do You Set Fabric Markers?
Some fabric markers do not require any special heat or instructions to set the color. For heat-set markers, place the decorated shirt or fabric into a clothes dryer on the hottest setting for around 30 minutes. You can also use an iron set on a cotton setting. Place a piece of white paper or newspaper on top of the design and rub the iron back and forth for approximately four minutes.

How Do You Personalize a T-Shirt With Fabric Markers?
Sketch your design onto the shirt first using a pencil or chalk outline. You can also place a simple design on a projector screen and situate the shirt on top of the design. Use a marker to trace the outline of the design before coloring in all of the areas.

Can You Remove Fabric Marker Paint From Fabric?
If you have a stray mark on your fabric you can easily remove it with a little rubbing alcohol. Place the stain facing down on a few paper towels. Sponge the back of the area with a bit of rubbing alcohol until it is saturated. Repeat this process while changing the paper towels often. This will transfer the paint to the paper towels and remove it from the fabric.
