Copics, beautiful, beautiful Copics!
While watching on-line tutorials about card-making, I kept hearing about Copic markers and wondering what was so great about them (that pretty much tells you how much of a newbie I was). So, I started watching tutorials specifically on how to use them. Well, that’s when I realized that once you colour with Copic markers, there is NO turning back!
They are very expensive, though, and you have to shop around. The best price that I have found in Canada is at Loonie4Scrapbooking.com–Angie is selling them for $4.99 each, at the moment, but the Copic company will be raising its prices by about $0.50 each in August.
The best price I’ve come across in the United States is at Florida-based Copic Marker Scrapbooking.com. Christian, the owner, is currently selling them at $4.87 each and offers free delivery anywhere in Canada, the United States and Mexico on shipments under three pounds. Copics don’t weigh much, so this is a great deal! Christian prides himself on top-notch customer service.
Most vendors sell them as high as $6.99. Yikes! That adds up when you need about 6 dozen of these beauties!
P.S. Copics come in over 300 glorious colours and they have just introduced 21 brand new ones! (Squeals of delight!!!)
