Step by step: creative designs for tea caddies

Imagine this scenario: you receive a last-minute invitation. Naturally, you’re delighted, but where can you get hold of a last-minute gift? This personalised tea caddy is just the job for tea and coffee drinkers, but it can be customised using our gloss paint markers and used for a variety of other purposes, too. Our edding gloss paint markers come in 18 fantastic shades ranging from black to white, including shimmering metallic tones. These colours work particularly well on smooth, dark or transparent surfaces such as metal, glass and plastic, and are quick-drying, highly visible and permanent.
