Back to the Future: Zebra MILDLINER!

Monday, November 27th, 2017


Technology, take a step back. A classic solution to keeping tabs on daily tasks is making a noticeable comeback! Physical study guides and planners are on the rise, and a new phenomenon called “bullet journaling” is taking over social media. Websites like Pinterest and Tumblr feature hundreds of thousands of ideas for customizing traditional journals into super-personal planners that keep every detail of life organized.


Everyone needs the right tools to make their planner their own, and Zebra Pen has the perfect product!  Zebra Pen’s Mildliner has been available in Japan for years and has been a big hit with the planner community.  There is a huge global demand for this product and Zebra Pen is excited to make it available to the wider art materials community this December through MacPherson’s.

Mildliner Colors

The Mildliner was launched as a highlighter, but it is much more of a creative marker offering 15 unique pastel colors that display softly on paper, allowing consumers a broad array of colors for color coding and creative applications. From light yellow to a unique soft grey, the mild color attracts your attention, but doesn’t overwhelm you with color. The ink is water-based pigment ink which means it is acid-free, archival quality and water resistant for lasting impressions.  It is also translucent making it great for layering with the added benefit of not bleeding through.

Mildliner Double Ended

It is double-ended, with a chisel and fine bullet tip, making it ideal for thick and thin lines. The Mildliner is great for hand lettering and embellishments, as well as everyday highlighting and underlining.  Whether you are using the Mildliner for studying for your next exam or in your new planner, it is sure to help you stay organized and express yourself in a unique way.

This December, the Mildliner will be available in an assorted 15 pack containing all colors in a reusable easel-back pouch.  (Item ZE78115).
