These are the best pens ever. I was so sick of using the gel pens and they just wouldn't write - or they would then they wouldn't. The only thing I wish is that they came in a thinner size as well. They are a little thick to use for everything.
I got these for the silver, but am finding more and more uses for the gold and copper markers. They're brush point, which can take a little getting used to. I store them flat in my pen drawer, which really seems to keep them fresh. I love how they ink on dark paper, even on glossy photos, and have even tried them with my stamps. I'm very happy with these and would definitely recommend them.

I bought this set a few years ago. I've never had a problem with them drying out. I'm not a huge fan of the gold one but it's a nice color. I have completely used up 3 of the silver ones though. And the copper one was a nice touch to my autumn pages.
Now, I did not purchase my set from scrapbook.com so perhaps they were "old" to begin with. However.....
They were purchased locally but I even tried 2 different stores. In the first set, one of the markers was cracked and therefore completely dried out so I returned the whole set. The second store only sold them individually, so I purchased the gold and copper. While they were fine at first, they still dried out much too quickly. I was so excited to see a metallic set of markers that included copper that I think it made the disappointment greater when the quality was not there.
As a beginning crafter I found these markers to be very and for all the different kinds of paper you can use them on.
I would definitely recommend them to others with out any reserve.
