Do you always craft in the same place? If so, you need easily accessible, visible marker organizers that have a permanent home in your workspace.
If you like to move your markers, pens and pencils around, maybe just around your home, maybe to crops or classes you need organizers that can be used at home but then easily packed up to move around. Are you dropping them into your crop tote, or just grabbing them so you can color on a short road trip?
I’ve given examples below for each of the organizers we make that are designed for pens, pencils and/or markers. Think about how you are most likely to use yours and then choose the right organizer for your crafting life.
Stationary, at home pen, pencil & marker organizers.
If you ONLY craft at home and have a permanent place in your workspace for pens, pencils and markers try these solutions.
From our Desk Maid product line – the 9″ Pen & Ink Palace, or the 15″ Pen & Ink Palace could be the ideal solution.
The Pen & Ink Palace designs are identical in every aspect except their width. They each have 5 staggered, slide out trays.
The biggest advantages to using these:
- They allow you to store your double-tipped markers flat.
- Markers are VERY accessible.
- There are no dividers, so if you add a new color to your collection, it’s very easy to slide it into place. You don’t need to move EVERY individual marker as you are required to do with the “divided” storage units.
- Almost any size, brand, style of marker can be stored in a Pen & Ink Palace. Chameleon markers are the exception, they are just too long.
Organizers that can be stuffed onto a shelf
Need to be able to stash your double-tipped markers away, but still store them flat? There are a couple of Fab File boxes that are perfect for this type of storage.
The 8×8 Fab File is great for a mix of markers. Long enough for Tombow and Artist Loft, but also good for Copic, Spectrum or Colorista.
The 5×7 Fab File is the perfect height for Spectrum, Colorista, or Copic. Stand it up for easy access, store it on it’s end to keep markers flat.
Organizers that are easy to move around
As I mentioned earlier, how and where you use your supplies should dictate the types of organizers you choose. If you’re dropping things into your tote that you can pull out and put away at event – try the Debra, Denise or Terri Buddy Bag.
Debra – great for shorter markers like Spectrum Noir and Copic.
Terri – taller than Debra, ideal for longer markers like Tombow & Artist Loft.
Denise – the biggest of the bunch perfect for Spectrum Noir, Colorista or Copic.
Want to be able to color in the TV room, on a plane or during a road trip? The Colorkeeper Stand & Store is ideal. There is a large pocket on the back of the Colorkeeper that will hold your Rotating Design Board, color book or sketch pad.
The Colorkeeper folds flat for storage, but folds into a stand for use. It has 24 pockets and will accommodate 72 colored pencils, or 24-48 markers and pens.
For air travel, fold the two levels of the Colorkeeper flat and tuck it into the seat back pocket – easy access to all of your pencils, but no rolling around.

In the 4 piece set I purchased earlier this year there was a pen holder with 5 compartments with shelves on a slight slant down in the back. I want to purchase more of this style but cannot find it anywhere. Will you be producing more of this item. Nothing else comes close-they are not deep enough for my tombow markers, etc. Appreciate it. Bec
Hi – I’m not sure which item you’re referring to. The 4-Piece DeskMaid set includes a Stadium Arranger, Pen & Ink Palace, Tool Tower and Pencil Perch. The only thing with an angled back is the Pencil Perch. Is that what you’re talking about? Here s a link to it: https://totally-tiffany.com/blog/product/pencil-perch-colored-pencil-organizer/
Here’s a link to the rest of the DeskMaid line if that’s not what you’re looking for: https://totally-tiffany.com/blog/product-category/craft-room-workspace-organizer/
Hope that helps! If not, please contact us at CustomerService@Totally-Tiffany.com
I think it’s the Pen & Ink Palace you’re asking about – do the pens lay flat? It came in a 9″ wide version with the 4pc set.
We also have it in a 15″ version.
