📌 Chalk Markers FAQs

How do I use chalkboard markers?

  1. With the cap upright, shake the marker for 30 seconds

  2. Push the tip in and out, until the ink fills the tip

  3. Test the drawing surface to make sure it it compatible by making a small mark, letting the ink dry, and erasing.

How do I erase ink from chalkboard markers?

Chalkboard markers will erase from compatible surfaces with a bit of water and a damp cloth.

What surfaces are compatible with chalkboard markers?

Smooth non-porous surfaces work best. Examples are: 

  • glass

  • metal

  • plastic

  • granite

  • glazed ceramic

  • porcelain chalkboards

  • chalkboard contact paper paper

  • vinyl labels

  • & many more!

Can I use them on chalkboard paint?

Generally, chalk markers don’t work well on chalkboard paint. Paint tends to absorb the ink from the markers and it doesn’t erase easily. Though some brands of chalkboard paint may work, we recommend you only write on unpainted, non-porous surfaces.

I accidentally used my markers on a porous surface. How do I remove it?

On porous or semi-porous surfaces like wood, chalkboard paint or painted walls, the liquid can be absorbed into the surface and become difficult to remove.

To remove the remaining marks from a porous surface, you can try using our Chalkboard Cleaner and Eraser kit, which includes a bottle of cleaning spray, foam cleaners, and a microfiber cloth. Simply spray the solution onto the affected areas and gently scrub with the included eraser.

Is the tip reversible?

The tip for the bold chalk markers can be changed from chisel to round!

Are chalkboard markers non-toxic?

Yes - the ink is water-based, odor-free, and xylene-free. Further, our markers comply with ASTM D-4236 and EN71 manufacturing standards for toys and art supplies.

How do I fix my dry tip markers?

If you're finding your markers a little dry, don't worry! You can reactivate them by following these simple steps:

  1. Shake well with the cap on

  2. Point the marker upright

  3. Gently pump by pressing the top and releasing it

  4. Repeat this process until the tip fills with ink, and you're ready to get back to creating!

How long is the shelf life of the markers?

VersaChalk markers are packed with abundant ink for countless art pieces, labels, signs, and more! The lifespan of these markers depends on how you use them. We do recommend storing them upright to safeguard the ink from unnecessary flow and always cap them tightly to prevent drying out.

And if you ever find your markers running low on ink, there's no need for concern! Bring them back to life by giving them an energetic shake (cap on, point up), then gently pump the tip. Repeat until it's fully inked and ready to go!

What's the best way to store the markers?

To keep your markers in top shape, we recommend storing them upright. This prevents ink from seeping through the tips when they're not in use. And don't forget to put the cap back on securely to prevent them from drying out!
