I'm talking like Sharpie ultra-fine-point style. Do these exist in a dry-erase marker? Do they make them that fine?

My whiteboard calendar I just bought has about 1.5x1.5 squares, and a "fine" tip marker that lets me write maybe 6 legible characters! I need something more usable than this..

Here's an example:

They make something pretty fine, but not that fine. I used to do a lot of writing on a monthly calendar board in my classroom. I would use Expo Low Odor Ultra Fine Tip Markers. They were a little awkward to hold, and have erasers and grippers on them (the gripper to me was the awkward part). A little "fancier" than a regular dry erase marker, but they do the trick.

I almost forgot, Lumocolor Markers make a superfine non permanent marker, that comes in red and black (that I know of). They can work on dry erase boards if you have something damp to wipe them off with. I used to have one moist eraser and one dry eraser.

Neat; looks pretty cool. Are these the ones?

Unfortunately I only spent $5 on the calendar board at Big Lots so I'd prefer not to spend twice that on the markers, haha! I appreciate the help. I might just see if I can make a lighter touch with this one (or maybe cut the tip down? hm..).

Those are the ones. I used to catch them on sale at Staples for 99 cents each. They weren't cheap, but I only needed two.

Awesome, I'd be fine with spending a buck or two.. thanks for the input. Didn't even know you could buy them individually because I can only find them online in packs, haha.

Also, you can check E-bay, I could get 12 packs of single color for $4.50 with free shipping from time to time.
