Whether you’re writing on a letter box, a bobby car, a flower vase, garden tools, a bin or a bicycle helmet: the new edding 8055 outdoor marker is the ideal pen for when you want to permanently label or mark any outdoor equipment. Its ink is particularly weather and waterproof and works on almost any smooth or porous surfaces, whether they are plastic or metal. It’s also legible on dark backgrounds thanks to its high degree of opacity. Before using the pen; shake it, remove the cap and then place the nib on a piece of cardboard. Carefully pump it up and down several times until ink flows into the nib. Then the outdoor marker is ready to go. With a bullet nib and stroke width of 1–2 mm, you can also use it for fine lettering.
