Okay I received these markers and what do I have to say about that I want to start with the cards the only have to the first one is that on the site it advertises that the markers come in this nice little leather bag that fits the markers very tightly. They don't they come in a little plastic type bag. And then my second Khan is that I was missing a couple of markers not a huge deal because that was taken care of very quickly but I mean that was a car. Okay now on to the pros. I love these markers I think that the color is vibrant. They are definitely easy to use. They blend gray like I purchase a few sets prior to these and they don't really blend well. But the first time I did these they began to blend very well so I'm very excited about that. I've never use Copic so I can't this compared to two. But I think that as a newbie that this is a good value for your money.
