Should I store my markers vertically or horizontally?
First and foremost, pens like fountain pens, gel pens, rollerball pens, and fine liners should always be store horizontally. This makes it so the ink doesn’t flow away from the tip of the pen. This also prevents them from getting dirty when they’re stored upright OR from ink clogs when stored upside down.
How do you store poster boards at home?
And to keep them all in place, a simple bungee cord is your magic trick. It keeps the boards from falling forward and also prevents them from bowing.

Should markers be stored tip up or down?
Break the well-ingrained habit of storing pens right side up for the “felt tip exception.” Items like markers, sharpies, and highlighters should be stored upside down to prevent them from drying out. Keeping the ink in contact with the felt tip fibers might help your writing utensil last a bit longer.
Should you store gel pens tip down?
Gel pens can be stored at a slight angle with the tip pointing down, and they will do just fine. I recommend avoiding straight up and down storage for your pens to get the most out of the ink/gel. Storing horizontally or slightly angled will help you avoid air bubbles inside the ink and pooling at the ballpoint.
