What would you use different types of writing and drawing pen sets for?

China graphs are also known as grease pencils, wax pencils or a china marker.
  • They’re a specialist type of marker used for adding annotation or design elements to glossy or slick surfaces such as glass, metal, ceramics, polished stone, plastic, lacquer, photographic paper, tape and film.
  • A china graph is made from a coloured, hardened wax core, and as it blunts, you simply peel back the tear-strip to expose more of the point.
Isograph pen sets are collections of technical drawing pens featuring replaceable nibs of different sizes and line thicknesses, along with refillable ink reservoirs.
  • They’re predominantly used by engineers, architects or other artists who need to make lines of a very consistent width.
  • Single isograph pens and replacement isograph pen nibs are also kept in stock.
  • Disposable technical pens and pen sets offer a cheaper alternative to refillable isograph pens in the short-term, but would of course need replacing entirely once they run out.
Marker pens are sold in a very wide variety of permanent, water-soluble and wipe-clean types, and in a huge array of colours and sizes.
  • They’re most commonly used for everyday household tasks such as marking cables and tyres, labelling any number of painted, metal or plastic products, or in general decorative/artistic projects.
  • Depending on what you need to do with them, you may require a waterproof, smudge-proof, fade resistant and quick-drying type.

Whatever design, writing or drawing project you're working on, we’ve stocked a carefully selected range of specialist pen and pencil sets - along with numerous other design-work tools and accessories - to help you achieve the results you’re looking for.
