Markers 101: Different Types of Marker Tips — Marvy Uchida

You might not think about the size of your pen tip when you pick up a pen to write a note, sign receipts, or draw a picture of your partner. It does, we are sure! There are many types of pen tips. The tip’s amount is important as the script written by 1.0 mm vs 0.7 mm pen is never identical.

The tip size refers to the width of the line produced by the tip when it is rolled across the paper. It can make the difference between a “one-and-done” writing experience and one that leaves you thinking, “Is it worth keeping this pen?” If you want the pen to be used to promote your brand, or to celebrate an event, you should aim to build a relationship with the people you are trying to reach.

With this in mind, let’s discuss the best pen tip users and the primary categories.

Smaller Pen Tip Size

Pen tips that have a smaller diameter can be referred to as extra fine or fine. Attention to the size of your pen tip

  • In miniature font
  • Writing on porous paper (or paper that absorbs ink more easily) is a good idea.
  • Detailing such details as those found in diagrams, drawings, and coloring books are included.
  • The use or combination of written symbols, mainly Chinese characters. These may be called hanzi (in Chinese), janji (in Japanese), or hanja (in Korean).

Note the various types of pen tips and their correspondence to Chinese characters. Some symbols can be very complex, so you will need a pen that has a fine or extra-fine tip to draw them accurately. It takes 33 strokes to create one of the most complex kanji characters. The meaning, “rough,” reflects how difficult it is.

  • No fine detail necessary
  • Use a writing system that is based on the alphabet, such as a Romance or Germanic language.
