Speaking of Copics ... I recently added some new storage for my Copic markers to my desk and wanted to share it with you:
I'm always looking for the perfect storage solution and Studio 3 Solutions came to my rescue! They sent me their new Color Cubbie to try out and I absolutely love them! Company owner, Tami McBeain, is a stamper & papercrafter just like you and me and when she found herself needing some storage for her Copic markers, she took her ideas to her husband (who has been a custom cabinet maker for 27 years!) and the Color Cubbie was born!
What do I like better about the Color Cubbie than my old storage?
#1 Space. ONE Color Cubbie takes up LESS space than the footprint of TWO 36-marker cases! Each Cubbie tower is 4.25" wide and 14" tall.
Tami says one Color Cubbie tower will hold 24 markers per shelf, 120 per tower, but as you can see I crammed a few more into some of my cubbies, LOL!
#2 - Slanted Deeper Shelves. Tami designed the shelves to be slightly angled (tipped up in the front), so the numbers on the ends of the makers are easier to read AND this prevents all of the makers from coming tumbling out when you grab one from the bottom of the pile (this was constantly happening to me with my old storage)! The Cubbies are also deeper -- 5.50", allowing 1/2" of your Copic Sketch marker easy to grab on to.
#3 - Customized Storage. I love that you can customize exactly how much storage you need by adding more Color Cubbies as your collection grows! And with the small size, they'll fit just about anywhere, in any configuration you'd like! I really like this type of shelving storage better than the plastic marker cases the markers come in -- it drives me crazy to try and get the markers back into those tiny individual holders and keep them in numerical order!
The only thing I found wrong with these two Color Cubbies is that I need two more of them to hold the rest of my markers and I've already ordered them!! :D I'll be sure to show you my full set of storage once they arrive!
I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!
