I was thrilled to receive a Meeden Marker Case for Christmas. I have been keeping most of my alcohol marker pen collection in an ArtBin Super Satchel (Artbin Super Satchel Review). However I now have too many markers to all fit in there. Plus the Artbin is just too big to take my markers to a craft group or friend’s house.
The Meeden Marker Case is a sturdily built, black case that holds 72 pens in individual slots. It has a solid frame and is covered in black nylon cloth.
A neat feature is the hook and loop tape on the edge of the closing flap. You can bend the flap back and hook it to the back to allow the case to sit at an angle. This is ideal for accessing the pens whilst colouring.
The flap closes with strong magnets and stays closed properly when carrying. The handle is soft and retracts flat against the case when not in use.
Universal Marker Storage
The pen slots are 18cms square (about 3/4 inch) and fit all the brands of makers in my collection. The case is also tall enough that all my markers fit perfectly height wise (unlike some cases which struggle with the tall Spectrum Noirs).
For reference, the marker brands I have tried are as follows:
- Copic Sketch and Copic Ciao
- Spectrum Noir Markers (old and new styles)
- Spectrum Illustrator
- Promarkers (Letraset and Windsor & Newton)
- Boldmere Art Markers
- Tiger Twin Markers
- StampingUp Blendabilities
- Tonic Nuvo Creative Pens
- Paperchase Dual End Markers
- First Edition Twin Markers.
It is also great for gel pens such as the sparkly Signo Gel Pens by Uni-ball.
The lovely new alcohol markers from Alte New are taller than any of the above brands. They stick up too far for the case to be closed. The popular Tombow ABT Dual Brush Markers are also too tall for this case.
Summary of Meeden Marker Case
I am very impressed with this handsome case. It looks smart, works well and is sturdily made. It is great for both storing markers and for transporting them around. I now have my favourite 72 markers in it, all ready to take to colouring sessions.
