Wet Erase Markers

Wet erase markers combine functionality and convenience with a water-based ink that cleanly wipes away with a damp cloth. Markers come in a wide array of colors, including standard red, blue, and black, as well as some tip sizes to create different effects on either artwork or project boards. Staples carries individual styles like chalk markers and bulk units to suit nearly any need from top brands such as Expo and Zig.

Multiple Uses for Wet Erase Markers
Wet erase markers come in handy at home, in school, and in the workplace. Teachers use wet erase markers and paint markers to write more permanent notes or lessons on a non-porous or acetate board or to create overhead presentations on transparency sheets for classes. Both at home and in the office, they work well to create schedules for family members and employees. Office managers can use them to map out a project plan, and since they wipe away cleanly, it's easy to change details as needed.

Wide Array of Wet Erase Marker Colors and Tip Sizes
Wet erase markers come in several colors including standard, pastel, and bold shades. You can buy a box of one color for shared office or school use or a set of multiple hues in a single package for color-coding and emphatic displays. Tip sizes vary as well. Fine tip markers are excellent for writing notes and creating presentations on smaller surfaces. They also work well for creating detailed designs on artistic projects, such as filling in a small area on a stamp or adding color highlights to drawings. Bullet tips produce a broad line, which works well when you want to call attention to a specific area or create larger text on board.

What's The Difference Between Dry and Wet Erase Markers?
There are a few differences between the two styles. Dry erase markers have a pigment ink that's not washable, so if it gets on clothes or a projector, it can be difficult to remove without a special release agent. Wet erase markers, on the other hand, have water-soluble ink, so they wipe off many surfaces cleanly and wash out of clothes. Dry erase units work on whiteboards, glass, and porcelain and wipe off with a dry cloth or eraser, and even your finger, while wet erase pens require water to remove.

Can You Use Wet Erase Markers on Dry Erase Boards?
Yes, you can. However, it's best to use them to create a more permanent display, one that doesn't require consistent changing since they do take a bit more work to remove. Wet erase markers are primarily designed for use on non-porous surfaces such as laminate sheets, storage boxes and special boards. However, they do work on dry erase boards that can support water.

How Long do Wet Erase Markers Last?
The markers are specially formulated to last up to 2 years. However, they can run out sooner if they're left uncapped for an extended period. If this happens, you can try storing the marker tip down to get the ink flowing again. Additionally, if you use markers heavily, such as during class lectures or in artistic projects, you may find that they run out of ink sooner, rather than later. Staples carries a wide selection of markers and other great back to school supplies, including permanent markers.
