    Letraset Tria Marker Users

    I'm planning on investing on some of the tria markers and I just wanted to know what kind of paper do you guys use.
    Also is there any toned paper that is thick enough so that the markers won't bleed through? pref the more brown tones.

    Well cardboard at least shouldn't bleed through (and I've had some random papers that are not thick but still don't bleed), but is the bleeding through a big issue? Unless it's a sketchbook, does it matter what the backside of the image looks like?

    You're trying to solve the problem backwards. You don't need thicker paper, you need paper that does not bleed through and waste the expensive marker.

    Try Bienfang marker paper.

    Have they fixed the issues with the newer Trias yet? As of a few years ago, the caps were notorious for coming off spontaneously and you would return to your marker to discover that it had dried up. Very irritating.

    I believe the ink will run out much quicker if it bleeds.

    Yeah but if the paper is thick and it sucks more ink (as thick paper may do), it's going to run out quicker even if it doesn't bleed through. Like Arenhaus said, thicker paper won't help. I suggest you go through local paper/art stores and ask around different papers.
