Got A Minute? ~ Longer Life for your pens and markers

This is just a really simple tip but I'm amazed at how many people don't realize it! When storing pens, markers or paint pens, it's important to store them with the tip down to keep continuous flow and reduce the chance of the tip drying out. If you don't store your pens in the correct way, it could shorten the life and quality of the pen. (There are exceptions - one being fountain pens which may flood if stored nib down)
Ink goes to the top of the pen making it skip or stop writing altogether
Ink feeds to the tip, keeping it ready for use at all times
