Today I am doing a Scribbles That Matter Brush Marker Review. They are dual tip meaning they have a small tip as well as the brush tip. I am comparing these markers to the better known Tombow Dual Tip Brush Markers, and I have updated my pen review chart to include these Scribbles TM Markers. You can find the video here and below you will find my written thoughts on the pens. They are available for purchase on Amazon in Canada, the US, and the UK as of publishing of this post). Quick disclaimer: this post and video are not sponsored. I bought these pens with my own money to try.
Scribbles That Matter Brush Marker Review Chart
I tested the markers in 3 journals: a Leuchtturm, a 100 GSM Scribbles That Matter, and a 160 GSM Scribbles That Matter Bullet Journal. There was bleed through in the Leuchtturm and ghosting in the Leuchtturm and 100 GSM Scribbles TM. The pens held up perfectly fine in the 160 GSM notebook.
My Overall Impression
I found the price to be very reasonable for the quality and variety of pens that you get. After filming this video and playing with them a bit more, my lasting impression of these pens would be juicy – meaning they put a lot of ink down on the page when colouring/lettering. An example being, when adding water, I found the ink bubbled up into the water (you get an idea of what I mean in the video). With all this said, I don’t have as much experience and practice with watercolouring, so they are a bit intimidating to me from that stand point. In contrast, I do find Tombows are a bit more forgiving. So, if you enjoy using markers for watercolours, these are definitely the markers for you.
Below is the comparison chart from my previous brush pen comparison post, which I updated to include these Scribbles That Matter Dual Tip Brush Markers. They are definitely most comparable to the Tombows which impresses me a lot.
If you already have Tombows, I would maybe give these a skip. They don’t particular do anything that the Tombows don’t. If you are looking to buy a good quality brush pen for a reasonable price, I would definitely get these. They are fun to use and the colours are very vivid. What you see on the barrel is what you get in the ink.
Reading the Scribbles TM account, these markers are superior to their previously released markers that were pulled shortly after release. These new markers are manufactured in Japan at a higher level of quality. So if you have tried their markers before and hated them, these are completely different from their previously released markers.
I hope you got a lot from this review. If you have more questions, please reach out to me and I can take a look. If there are any other products you would like me to look at, just reach out and I will be more than happy to look into it too!
P.S. I wanted to include a fun mini-swatching video for you to enjoy ?
