Do Hive Caps™ work the same as regular ink caps?
Yes. The depth and perimeter are slightly different than a regular ink cap, but they hold very similar amounts of pigment. The bottom also sits higher, because of the reversibility. Just like using a new type of tube, cartridge or machine, it may take you a try or two before you get used to it.

The larger size cap is comparable to #16. The smaller size cap is comparable to #9
