We store all our markers cap down and the Crayola Markers last many months.
Are you sure they are getting the caps snapped on tight?

Subject: crayola markers not working
I know this issue has been discussed before but I missed some of the
strands. My problem is that I recently ordered some Crayola markers and
it seems they are already running out of ink. I'm wondering if the fact
that I have them stored, caps down, in a marker stand that could be the
I stored the same brand of markers in similar stands before and I
can't recall losing them so quickly. I ran into this problem earlier but
I attributed it to the markers possibly being old. These markers are only
approximately a month old.
