Get your message across and the word out in the most efficient, creative way! If you need to create a message for your classroom, board meeting, restaurant menus, retail display, or home, think beyond the traditional writing tools. Learn the difference between wet wipe chalk markers and permanent markers and choose the best option for your application.
Wet Wipe Chalk Markers
Wet wipe markers are best used on nonporous surfaces, which makes them great for a variety of applications, including the following:
- Varnished wood
- Nonporous chalkboards
Feel free to get as creative as you want with wet wipe markers. They come in an assortment of colors with a clear distinction from permanent markers—the pigment applies smoothly, is quick-drying, and can be removed with water and a cloth.
Don’t be fooled by “chalk” in the name. These markers don’t actually contain chalk! Instead, their pigment-based ink dries to a vibrant yet powdery finish. Because it uses ink instead of powder, the chalk markers are sometimes referred to as liquid chalk. They are also dust-free, like wet wipe markers. You can wipe away the marking with a wet wipe or damp cloth.
How To Use Wet Wipe Chalk Markers
Shake the marker well before use. Then, press and pump the tip down on your writing surface and keep pressing until the liquid chalk flows into the tip. The tip starts as white or tan but absorbs the ink’s color as you use it. It might take a while to saturate the marker, but once you do, you can create messages wherever you please!
If you want to mark something and do not want the pigment to rub off or erase, the permanent markers are a great choice. They will work on any surface, but will not come off!
At Chalk Ink, we have wet wipe chalk markers and offer a semi-permanent formula for sign artists who need a longer lasting pigment for signs that may be affected by weather. By buying these products in bulk, you have an endless supply of unique writing tools and don’t need to worry about restocking for your next project.
