Browse our range of products to find the right high-quality fiber-tip pen to suit your individual needs.
What are fiber-tip pens?
The fiber-tip pen has been around since 1952, when it was invented by Sidney Rosenthal in the USA. Originally called a “Magic Marker”, it remains exactly that to this day for many artists big and small. Fiber-tip pens are now available in countless bold and pastel colors, and even neon shades. Users have come to appreciate fiber-tip pens for their particular characteristics:
- High color intensity
- Wash easily out of most textiles
- Wide choice of colors
How should I store fiber-tip pens?
It is best to store fiber-tip pens horizontally. Our STAEDTLER Noris fiber-tip pens therefore come in a classic wallet and are available as a set in packs of 6, 10, 12 or 20 pens, for example. Our premium triplus color fiber-tip pens are available in a stand-up STAEDTLER box in packs of 6, 10 or 20 pens or in a metal case in packs of 15, 30 or 50 pens. Fiber-tip pens are usually able to withstand significant variations in temperature. You can therefore take them on holiday with you for your children to enjoy or pop them in your bag to pass the time creatively.
How can I make fiber-tip pens color again?
If your fiber-tip pens have run out, the frequently suggested trick of filling them with water will not do much, unfortunately. However, our STAEDTLER fiber-tip pen range offers long-term stability, which means that you will be able to buy replacements of your favorite colors any time.
What can you do if your fiber-tip pen has dried up because you forgot to replace the cap? In this case you can try to revive it with a little water. However, this doesn’t always work. Always make sure you replace the cap properly when using your pens so that you get to enjoy their intensive colors for a long time to come.
Tip: STAEDTLER Noris fiber-tip pens, as well as our triplus color pens, feature the special Dry Safe System. These fiber-tip pens can be left uncapped for days without drying up.

Tip: If you are following the current mandala trend, along with a few pretty images for coloring, you will also need the right accessories: from colored pencils and graphite pencils to fineliners, which writing instruments you use ultimately comes down to personal preference. Fiber-tip pens are also particularly suitable for mandalas, as they allow very precise coloring. They also have a high color intensity and uniform color gradient.
How are fiber-tip pens made?
- The casing of the fiber-tip pen is made from plastic granulate and is formed by being pressed into the desired pen mold.
- The pen name, manufacturer and color type are printed onto the barrel of the pens.
- A soft core, which acts as an ink reservoir, is inserted into the pen casing. The pen’s tip and cap are also fitted.
- A machine injects around 1.5 g of ink into the reservoir. Very specific regulations apply here: the ink must be non-toxic. This means that children will not be harmed if they happen to put the pen in their mouth, for example.
The cap fitted to the pen prevents it from drying out.
