I've just become interested in the Copic Markers. What I would like to know is, how is the best way to buy them? singles or in a set? and where is the best place to buy them? I know they have them here...but is there a better price out there? Also what is the Ciao Marker? Sorry about all the questions
My friend has all of them and I was asking her the same thing..she told me its best that you DONT get the set..you get a few at a time within the same color family..and you build up that way. Also I was told by many people that come Aug each marker is going up .50 so im trying to buy what I can before that happens. Good luck
This is the description for the Ciao. It explains what the Ciao is. I found it in the link in your post. "The Ciao marker is a great introduction to the Copic line of markers. This marker from Copic is the economic choice for the beginner. Ciao markers have the exact same nib features as the Sketch markers but is a smaller package, smaller color palette and without airbrush capability."
I started out with 2-3 colors from each color group. I don't know where you can find the best price. I purchased mine through an offer at a scrapbook expo, and I purchase most of my other supplies here at the superstore.
I buy mine at J's when they are having 50% off all the artist markers. It says that it excluded Copics, but I have bought them on several different occasions & the cashier always gives them to me at 50% off!
My J's doesn't have Copics. But they are online. I get them from Oozak. If you log in and create a login you get a lower price. the lowest i have seen and the best customer service i have seen. I wouldn't buy the sets, I would buy them in color families 3 at a time, such as C-00, C-01, C-03, Or bid on ebay as you can get some really good deals. Just have to be careful about duplicating. Good Luck! They are definitely addicting!
