There is a popular misconception. Bumpers are not really for bumping things with. LOL Basically there are 2 types of scuff marks. One mark is on top of the piant, and will usually buff off or clean off with some type os solvent. The other type of scuff is in the paint. If the mark will not buff off, it will likely need to be repainted.

You might try gettin away with some touch up if you can get your tip to fit in the scuff right. Repainting is the alternative.
