Robin....I had to delete your post as it had an outside link that sells products that compete with Gina K. Designs.  Please feel free to chat about products generally without using competing links.  Thanks!
Thank you have a blessed day.
Thanks, Denise for asking this question.  I was wondering the same thing.  I have just started stamping and have just started collecting the supplies needed to try some of the great ideas.  I received my first stamps from Gina K last week.  I just want to do everything.  LOL

I use Tria markers from Letraset, those are aimed at professional illustrators. BUT they do have a hobby range - Promarkers.

 

Alternatively, if you don't need to blend your inks and just want simple colour, there are many great felt-tipped pen sets available in most general stores

Hobby Lobby carries Copics and you can use the 40% coupon but you can only use one coupon at a time. They do have a couple of packs that have 6 in a pack that I used the coupon on. It might take awhile but I try to get one each time I go for something else that is one sale.  

I use Tombo's. Have had them for years! They never seem to run out.

Well girls, have three different types of markers and they were all 3.50 and up a marker, so when you take that into consideration, and that copic ciao are the same or less in Canada, why should I not go with the copics.  They are the same, can add the sketch required to complete down the road and since they are refillable, this actually makes them less costly.

Guess it all depends on what you want and feel comfortable working with, which is why we purchase a few and try them first,.  But, this person did not, but got 24 of one, and don't like them at all, so to another home they go.  Can't shadow or anything with them as they are water based and scrub up some stock.  

Never heard of the one mentioned here, but will check it out also, but do have a large list or copics finally decided on.   

Try Promarkers by Letraset. I use and love both, but Promarkers (while a good quality marker)tend to be quite a bit cheaper!

Good Luck!

I was looking on sites and did not find that they are refillable and did find that you cannot change the nibs.  So.  when taking that into consideration, even if you pay $6.00 for the original purchase of a sketch, you keep it, refill it for under a dollar each time, so it really works out cheaper in the long run than many others that cannot be refilled.  Even the ones from the party companies are 3.95 or so a marker and cannot be refilled.  

 

I love that you can change the nibs to have what you use most as well., so may just keep going here.  Have ciaos at present, with a bunch of twin touch fine nib, so am trying the sketch next.  love the way they both work, but don't like the new brush one from twin touch.  Is not sturdy enough for my hands to not push too hard and colour in more than wanted.   The bullet or hard tip is great. 

Thanks, but will keep to these two and mix and match the sketch and ciaos I think. 

I'm doing the same thing. The six pack is around $40 and you can get the 40% off each time you go!

I purchased a couple of Copics at Micheaels recently and they are working fine, but for future reference, how do you refill them?  I looked at Michael's the last time I was there and didn't see any "refills".

I order the refills online.  Last time I ordered one it was on ebay.  It was $7.99.
