Where can I find replacement cartridges/markers?
You will be able to buy the Scribit Erasable Markers online on the Scribit website. Other compatible markers are available in stores or online as well, but they are not under Scribit direct control, thus we are not responsible for the quality of their performance.

How many colored markers are there?
What size of markers does Scribit support?
Scribit is designed to work with Scribit Erasable Markers, but it can as well operate with any markers within the following size range: Max diameter compatible markers: 0.57inches (14,5mm) Min diameter compatible markers: 0.43inches (11mm)
What type of ink is used by Scribit?
In the videos you see, Scribit is working with the Scribit Erasable Markers’ ink. You can use it with any ink, but that will affect the ability of Scribit to erase the drawings.
How long does it take to make a drawing?
This is dependent on the complexity of the drawing. To draw all the outlines of 6 lines of text, Scribit may take up to 25-30 minutes, while drawing a flower or the outlines of a portrait would take less than 5 minutes. A simple sentence 1mx1m will take 2 to 10 minutes, while a 1mx1m detailed portrait with multiple colors could take up to 2 hours.
Does the ink smear when touched?
Yes, it does. If you run your finger on the default ink (Scribit Erasable Markers), the drawing will be smeared.
Will drawings degrade over time?
After 2-3 weeks, the quality of the drawing could be less impactful: no problem, just redraw the art on top!
What is the lifetime of a drawing?
It is virtually infinite, naturally, the quality might decrease over time.
Can drawings be permanent?
If you replace the Scribit Erasable Markers with other compatible markers, you can easily obtain permanent drawings.
How many drawings can I do with a set of markers?
It really depends on the type of markers and the type of ink they use, and the complexity of the design. Using one set of Scribit Erasable Markers (12 in a pack), you will be able to draw up to 10 different drawings.
Can Scribit draw blocks of color?
Scribit can make any drawing except for actual shades - it can replicate them by making little dots with different distance. On the other hand, Scribit is fully able to draw solid areas in the same way as we would do with our hands: back and forth until it is filled up!
Can you pause a drawing to change a marker?
Yes, you will be able to do it through the Scribit App.
Can I erase a drawing after a few days?
Yes, of course, you can. The drawing will stay on the wall until you erase it, either with Scribit or with a hairdryer.
Can Scribit work with chalk/liquid chalk pens/dry erase markers?
Yes, Scribit can work with any marker within the following size range: Max diameter compatible markers: 0.57inches (14,5mm) Min diameter compatible markers: 0.43inches (11mm).
When Scribit finishes a drawing, can it be moved away from it, so it does not take from the aesthetic value of the image?
Yes, you can preset it to stay away from the drawing area. Alternatively, you can remove the robot from the wall and reinstall it when you need to.
Is it possible to make drawings with maybe 10 or 15 colors by manually changing pens?
Yes, you will be able to set which colors you have loaded each time and redraw on existing drawings: this way you can achieve images with the number of colors you wish, with no limits theoretically!
When will I be able to buy more markers?
You will be able to get more Scribit Erasable markers from our website as of April 2019.
