The world we live in today has become more and more centered around technology and digital communication. Emails, texting, instant messaging, and social media are a common part of daily life, but can you remember the last time you received a handwritten letter? The instant relay of a message can be convenient for sure, but the personal touch of a physical letter can be a powerful thing.

Inspiration Monday : Brush Lettering

Our blog hiatus is over! And we’re going to start 2013 with a new ongoing project. Every Monday we’ll be posting some artwork done using the markers we carry. My hope is to share some unique techniques and inspire you to use your markers in new ways!

Pebeo Porcelaine Markers on Postcard Mug

Postcard Mug

In the age of digital communication it’s always fun to receive a handwritten letter in the mail, especially when it’s from a loved one who is off traveling. When we stumbled upon this adorable idea by Bailey Doesn’t Bark our minds were blown. They have created a Mug that also serves as a Postcard! When you order the mug you also receive a Pebeo Porcelaine 150 Marker in black to write your message. As with all the Pebeo Porcelaine Markers once dry and baked the written marks are dishwasher safe. Such a cute idea! For more information and more color options of the Pebeo Porcelaine Markers visit the Pebeo section of our website here : http://www.markersupply.com/pepama.html
