We love dual tip markers because it’s like getting 2 pens in 1! And these water-based markers make great choices for coloring books, because the ink tends to not bleed through most papers- a great benefit if you have double-sided pages!



The Brushables are dual brush tip markers that feature a solid color on one end, and a 50% lighter shade of that color on the other end- making it super easy to color in two matching tones. The rubber brush tip works in larger spaces and all those super tiny spots as well!

Find them in color sets or a complete set of 24!




The Zig Writer is a great marker for general writing and paper crafting purposes, but also has nice basic tips for coloring. On one side, find a rounded bullet tip, and on the other, a fine plastic tip. Comes in 48 colors!

These markers also come in metallic and chalk pastel colors, great for both light AND dark coloring pages!




Another marker with great tips for coloring, the “Fine & Chisel” describes itself perfectly. You get a fine plastic tip on one side, and a slanted chisel tip on the other. Chisel tips give you nice control over how you color- the same tip covers both broad and narrow spaces!

Have a look at some special “seasonal” sets featuring fun color groups of the Fine & Chisel markers!




Although not found in the “Zig Memory System” like the other Zig dual tip markers, the Art & Graphic is one of our favorite dual tip pens. Comparable to the Tombow dual brush pen, it has a fine tip opposite a flexible rubber brush tip, making it great for many things- including coloring!
If you have coloring pages thick enough to handle it, the Art & Graphics blend like watercolor when used with a water brush like the Zig BrusH20, which makes for some awesome effects!
Try them in some brand new Art & Graphic color sets or find a large range of 80 colors individually!



zig-photo-twin-markers-38Just one of the great finds in our Clearance Section– the Photo Twin markers are what we use in coloring books for just a little tint of color. Designed for adding color to B&W photos, a lot of the Photo Twin colors are on the pale side, while still giving a nice look! The large brush tip and smaller brush tip are perfect for those coloring books with tiny spaces. There are limited quantities of these markers left, so get ’em while you can!
