Yes, I'm Selling all my Copic Sketch Markers

Good morning stampers!

This cute little guy is on a wobble, so he is EXTRA cute today! He is from my new release "Love Bites".
As most of you know I attended the Winter CHA in California recently. I came home with a million new ideas and an empty wallet. (but sooooo worth it)
One of the "new" things I will be doing in 2013 is working with Spectrum Noir markers instead of Copic. (lower jaw drops) I know...I know....but look how cute my love bug is, he is colored with Spectrum markers.
Why? Here is my top 5 list of personal reasons:
1. Price - they average $5.00 per marker cheaper.
2. They offer one on one training, for FREE - I took both Copic classes last year, and walked away not feeling I could color better than when I walked in. How much were those classes...$200.00-$400.00 each?? If you want to be a certified Spectrum Noir colorist, you actually have to pass a coloring test. I am going to go through their certification. Then I can teach at the stamp shows..YAY!
3. I think I got caught up in the whole "COPIC" buzz. I'm not saying they are not good markers, cause they are awesome. Most of the booths at the stamp shows push Copic. I have had TONS of stampers tell me they would love to learn how to color but cannot afford $7.00+ per marker. Plus I don't have to worry about the crazy marker competition at my shows if I sell Spectrum.
4. I sat down for an hour and tried the Spectrum Noir markers at CHA and surprise surprise....I like them better. Hmmmm, weird right? I love how they blend, I feel like I have more color control, and I don't need 500 different colors to achieve the exact same outcome. That is much better for my wallet.
5. They have a super easy coloring number system. The lower the number, the lighter the color.

I will be doing some demos at the stamp shows this year. If you come to my booth, you can try them for yourself.

SO...all my copic markers are for sale. I am selling them for $3.75 for each, plus flat rate $2.50 shipping anywhere in the USA. If you buy 1, shipping is $2.50. If you buy 20, shipping is $2.50. That is one heck of a deal. All of the markers are in very good used condition. First come, first serve. The list will be updated daily during the week days only. I'll keep the list up until they are all sold.
There is a link on the left hand side of this blog, that will take you to the whole list.
Thanks for stopping by and have a creative day!


  1. Well, I don't plan to jump in and buy any Copics but that's because I discovered Spectrum Noir about 6 months ago and have been hooked on them ever since! I started out buying only a few of them, thinking that because they were so much less expensive, they'd probably be less satisfactory. What a surprise after working with them side by side with Copics! They were every bit as good and so much kinder to my budget. I still have a lot of Copics (and Promarkers) but as they run out, I'm not replacing them or refilling them -- I'm buying more SNs. :-D
