Marker Supply’s Pen Pal Contest!

The new Marker Supply contest is here!  This time, EVERYONE who participates will get something in return. 🙂

With April being “National Letterwriting Month”, we’re all about celebrating handwritten letters and notes- so we couldn’t think of any better way to run this month’s contest but to have you send us some snail mail.

Physically putting a pen to paper and writing as a form of communication has almost become a lost art for most people. Since markers, pens, and pencils are our world here at Marker Supply, we want to see them in action.
Plus, the Marker Supply warehouse has recently expanded into a new space. …

CONTEST: CHALK MARKERS!!

This month at Marker Supply, we’re taking a look at one of our largest groups of markers:

CHALK MARKERS!!

CHALKMARKERSall

“Chalk” paint markers are starting to be used instead of traditional chalk in lots of places. They don’t have the messy dust, they don’t easily smudge right off, they can be used multiple ways on multiple surfaces, and they give you a larger range of colors!

For the rest of July, we’ll be highlighting our chalk markers and paints, interviewing a few awesome chalkboard artists, and showcasing several projects that use chalk art.

Over the next month, we’ll be seeing a large amount of red, white, and blue as America gets ready for the July 4th holiday. So this has inspired us to do another contest here at Marker Supply!!

For this contest, we’ll put those 3 colors into their respective categories in the world of color tones:

* RED = Warm tones *

* WHITE = Neutral tones *

* BLUE = Cool tones *

All you need to do for this contest is:
-Tell us one of those color groups you prefer using in your own artwork and if there is a reason why -OR- Tell us how you’ve used those color groups to contrast each other in your art
AND
-Submit a photo of one of your art pieces using that tone group/contrast!…

Contest: “April Showers Bring May Flowers”

MayFlowersPOST-Koiborder

The month of April is over and, as they say, those springtime showers have started to bring us flowers!!

Flowers are such a widely used element in MANY forms of art. Some artistic styles and even colors were created because of an artist’s joy in drawing & painting floral scenes.

So we have another fun contest for you as we celebrate flowers through the month of May!!

Just send us a photo of your flower artwork and tell us which markers you used to make it. It can be a finished flowery page from a coloring book, something that’s bloomed in your own sketchbook from markers or pencils, watercolor-style botanicals, floral fabric art, or even a decorated flower pot!…
