Love My Copics May 17, 2009
I have now purchased all the colors. I have been trying various color systems for over 15 years and with the Copics have finally found the system I love. They have a learning curve but with YouTube videos it does not take long to learn how to use them - you need to use the right ink if you are stamping and the right paper - the paper makes a real difference on how easy they are to use. They seem expensive but I have purchased so many markers that are not refillable and you can not replace the nib on them that I see these as a lifetime investment. Can you tell I love my Copic Markers. Here is a web site that has wonderful info on these markers

These are the small size markers Mar 12, 2009
If you want to get the most out of your Copics, you should get a set of standard size markers. These ones are the smaller versions... They're less expensive, but they hold less ink.
But speaking of Copics in general, it's a great marker to buy. They may seem expensive, but if you're serious about marker coloring, then you should consider them. Many professionals use these markers and they bleed less (so I'm told) than the major American brands (such as Prismacolor). They're alcohol based and can make permanent marks on a great variety of surfaces. I was even able to use them to color smoothly on a plastic model.
I would be careful, however, if you're planning on marking up a page you've inked directly. Many dipping inks will smear if Copics are applied directly to the ink. I've tried this several brands of ink and have come to the conclusion that there are inks out there which will not smear when marked (technical pens are especially useful to avoid smear), but most will.
I'd recommend looking at the Copic marker website, because it has a lot of useful information about the markers which is valuable for those considering an expensive purchase.

Great markers. Crappy box. Nov 27, 2010
By N. Yakovenko
The best Japanese markers that a normal person can afford. If you are semi-serious about making marker drawings that look good and last, go for COPIC markers. Just don't expect to transport your markers in the box they come in. Not sure what went wrong there.

ITEM IS NOT AS PICTURED Feb 05, 2013
The item received was not as described. This is the "Original" square barrel marker set not the "Sketch" oval barrel set which means that the nibs on them are different. Very disappointed to have received the incorrect product. The picture should be changed to indicate the actual product being shipped.

Copic Sketch Marker 72 Set A Apr 29, 2011
By Linda D. Milroy
This set is great for the person just starting out. It contains enough color combination to start with. A good basic start that you can add to over time.
