Lumocolor chalk, paint & permanent markers by STAEDTLER for hobbyists and professionals

Need more colour in your life? Then discover the Lumocolor range by STAEDTLER. Alongside our popular classic, the permanent marker, it also features our chalk markers and paint markers. These three pen and marker varieties open up a whole new world to your personal expression. Our markers not only offer new colour tones, but also enable new techniques that give your creativity free rein, so you can create individual artwork – just as you imagine it.

The Lumocolor range by STAEDTLER

The name Lumocolor is derived from the words β€œLumen” and β€œColour” and represents light and colour. Originally, the product range consisted of permanent and non-permanent markers. These appear extra bright when illuminated from behind, e.g. on an overhead slide or in a three-dimensional picture frame with fairy lights. However, the intensely coloured tint is also ideal for other uses. There are almost no limits to what you can create. Thanks to our chalk markers and paint markers, you can now get creative on even more different surfaces.

Refillable permanent markers: for endless creativity

Why have we made our permanent markers refillable? We care about the environment! By refilling our pens, we are ensuring a more sustainable future as the lifespan of the markers is drastically extended.

What's more, beginning in late 2022, we will start the international changeover of Lumocolor to recycled material. Then the casing (barrel, section and cap) of many models will be made of up to 97% recycled plastic (in accordance with ISO 14021).
