The Pentels aren't the only markers I love. Here are a few of my other favorites:
Mr. Sketch scented markers - Perfect for posters and charts, these guys don't bleed, hardly smudge, and smell delicious. I even like the black one, though I can remember hating it as a kid.
Le Pen - Are they a marker or a pen? These little guys have the finest of points, so it's up to you. I use them for writing more than drawing, and I adore them. Their sleek packaging and sophisticated colors draw constant compliments. The only downfall is that the fine tip is a little bit delicate, so I've had to replace a few, but they're worth it.
Papermate Flair - another marker/pen, these guys are like a hardier version of the Le Pen. No, they don't offer quite as many colors, and no, the point is not quite as fine, but they still make notes and doodles look beautiful, and you don't have to worry about that little felt tip breaking! I keep a pink one in my car.
Do you have a favorite marker?
