Tuesday Tips and Tricks: Copic Storage

Hey everyone! Samantha here and today's Tuesday Tips and Tricks segment is all about Copic marker storage. First, I am going to show you my storage methods and then I have found links to some great Copic storage ideas that I have found.

So to get started, I made a video showing you my permanent Copic storage. This is how I store my markers UNLESS I plan on taking them somewhere.

It just so happens that sells two storage racks that look almost identical to my storage container shown below.

The only difference I can tell is that this one has smaller (but many more) cubbies. Click here to see the product page for this storage rack!

And also this one, which might be the exact same one that I have:

When I went searching for Copic storage ideas for you guys, I came across the Artic Stamp Queen, who happens to store her Copics in the little Ikea bins I showed you in the video (hers are green, while the ones I showed you in the video are pink).

Now, if I plan on taking my markers with me somewhere, I pack 72 of them into my handy dandy marker wallet:
There are many sized wallets and iCopic just recently got them all back in stock. Click here to see all Copic storage available now! These wallets are AWESOME for traveling because they fold up nice and small and then when you want to color, they fan out so you can see all your colors. I seriously take this thing with me anywhere, the doctor's office, on vacation, in the car for long traveling. If you are wondering how it is possible to color on the move, then watch one of my older videos about how I streamline my coloring process, click here!

Now, I want to show you some of my favorite Copic storage ideas I have found on the internet!

Karen has a wonderful tutorial on how to create your own storage containers out of foam board:

On the StampTV discussion board, there is a great post about all the different ways that people store their Copics (including some photos!).

And you could always find a cute little cubbie or bin to store your markers in like the people below did.

Like this one I found on the Limetart Blog:

This one I found on the Papercraft Memories Blog:

And finally this one from our very own designer Alyssa:

Do you have a great Copic storage idea? Show us in the comments section below! We would love to see your method.


I use an ArtBin super satchel double deep for my Copics. It can be seen on my blog:

Great ideas! I store mine in a photo box .. the plastic case that the copics come in fit in nicely and the lid even closes.
Not sure how to attach a photo here but on my blog
27th June entry you can see some photos.

Great ideas, I love seeing how others store their stuff!

While I absolutely LOVE the tiered marker storage ideas, that didn't work for me. I tried (and discarded) several storage systems over the past 2 years until I found a cute child's canvas art tote at an office supply store. It's portable, has 12 compartments, a comfortable handle, the canvas bottom twirls easily on the table (at home or at a class), and it holds a lot of markers. I currently hold 287 markers in it and will eventually store all 346 of the Sketch markers. It's great.

Arctic Stamp Queen here, great ideas and thanks for the shout out. :)

Love all the ideas. This is what I use.
