copic markers may seem...

copic markers may seem overpriced, but when you break it down, they're really
economical. the initial investment is always a bit high if you buy the sets, but
when you add the refills and replaceable nibs into the equation, you start to
see that you save some money in the long run. I use copic for my work. have sets
of the greys and colors. when i run out of ink, i just reach for a refill and
i'm ready to keep working. the refills cost about 5 dollars each, but you can
refill a copic anywhere between 5-7 times with a single bottle of various
refill. you might think that it makes more sense to buy a cheaper marker, but
what sets copics apart from their competitors is how saturated they are. you
can blend them into each other because they're so wet. that leads to a uniform
coat and less streaking as happens with most other markers. I'm hoping jet pens
will begin carrying refills and nibs for the original copics. that will make
them a one stop shop for anyone using copics on a daily basis.
