SET THE REKORD STRAIGHT

Older style markers have a good look.
SELECTUM - I am usually not a fan of markers that have stick on labels, but I really think it works well on this marker. It is a vertical rather than horizontal sticker, and looks well worn and old in contrast to the actual marker itself. Octagonal base, bullet point. White cap and base, which normally looks odd, but not here.
PANTONE BY LETRASET – I think I got this one in SF at the Junk shop. In fact I remember I did, because I picked up this sheet of semi-used Black Letraset black stick paper, and thought this would be a good pairing. Classic and clean design, which is in line with whatever merchandise Pantone licenses to make. Nice rounded square body, clean lines, the cap almost feels like piano keys. Nice thick chisel tip, produces heavy black lines, and smells like a black permanent marker should. Hazy. Really nice font choices throughout the layout. This is one of my favorite markers style wise and design wise.
PAPERMATE DOUBLE ENDED – I found this one in the back of a variety shop on Parliament. I think its from the 70’s. Really simple streamlined design. Broad tip on one side, fine tip on the other. The minimal labeling that is on the marker is done in a fine silver, which matches the nice metal clip on the top cap. The other thing I bought from the variety store that night was Coffee flavored Coke. That stuff tasted really, really nasty.
