If you are a beginner hand letter artist or an experienced hand letter artist you need these brush markers. Right now.
If you already know you want these, click here to find them. I know they can be hard to find.
Here are 3 reasons you need the Artline Stix brush markers in your collection:
- Easier than the Tombow Dual Brush. Don’t get me wrong. I could write a whole list on why you need Tombows in your collection. I love them. But when you are starting out, Tombows can be difficult to work with. Because the Artline Stix has a shorter tip, they are easier to work with. This also means they are a great in-between size. I like my Tombow or Pentel Fudes for smaller designs and Tombow Dual Brush for bigger designs, but I didn’t have a medium size until I found the Artline Stix!
- Vibrant colors and natural ombre. This is actually the main reason I tried these out in the first place. I fell in love with the vibrant colors. When I saw other posts of the Artline Stix, I always thought they had done something extra to give it an ombre effect. It turns out, the markers do it naturally!

- Fun and inexpensive! These markers are literally like legos. You can connect them and stack them. How fun! I cannot tell you how many comments I get about these markers! Everyone wants to get their hands on them. They come in a pack of 16 and they are under $30 from Amazon.
Update: You can also find these markers from The Print Mint Etsy shop here. They have a 20 pack, 12 pack, and 6 pack.
I love the Artline Stix brush markers and I am so pleased with my purchase. To make this a complete review, here are a few downsides:
- There are only 16 colors instead of Tombow’s or Crayola’s endless colors.
- You can’t find them in America (But Amazon Prime is even better than going to the store!).
- They sometimes bleed through the paper (not like Sharpie bleeding, just slightly).
Here is a fun rainbow video! Notice that my nail polish matches the magenta marker perfectly. 🙂
