Copic FAQs

I have been scrapbooking for many many years, but stamping is something that is relatively new to me in the last year. When I started stamping, I kept hearing about Copic markers... I didnt know what they were, but everyone was talking about them. I have since spent probably 100s of dollars on copics, obviously, I love them, there is nothing like them, anywhere! I thought I would share this with you, I found it on splitcoast and thought it would be good for anyone that is wondering what the heck copics are.....

At the bottom, you can find a link to Marianne's blog, she created this list and is Copic Certified.
