    I personally think the promarkers and copics are virtually the same, they do the same and I have bought the promarkers from silly monkey crafts who is a sponsor here x

    Well, let me try this again. Apparently I can't yet post links, so I lost my post.

    I did quite a bit of research both before and during the purchasing of my Copics markers. I found helps on a site called Color Me Copic and Suzanne Dean's site called ScrapBitz. I started by purchasing 2 or 3 markers just a few numbers apart so that I could shade, and I purchased from a list I found that Marianne Walker suggested. I see that Suzanne has a starter list on her site as well. I still watch lots of vids! I like Suzanne's and different ones I find on YouTube to learn how to shade hair, clothes, skin, etc. I now have 138 markers and feel like I have enough to do most anything. (I hope )

    Don't know if any one has answered this but it seems to me the main difference is that Copics can be refilled, but weighed against that is that Promarkers are cheaper. Both are alcohol ink pens.

    Does anyone know is printer ink prone to bleeding with copics or am I just not letting it dry enough?
    Even after at least 24 hours its still bleeding a bit.
    Thanks

    I've never had a problem with the copics and printer ink bleeding even when colouring a couple of hours after printing ,It could be the paper your using , I print on Neenah or Rymans coated

    Thanks,
    I may have to invest in better card.
    Not sure what the brand is I'm using, think its just generic stuff from craft shop.
