My Favorite Copic Markers

Copic Markers are my favorite markers, hands down, no question. I am often asked what my favorite colors are. Especially from folks new to the Copic scene. There are over 358 colors…so it’s easy to wonder what colors are favorites. It’s also smart to ask around before investing in a handful…you want to make sure the colors suit your style, etc.

When possible I sample the colors before buying. What you see on a screen isn’t always what you get. The colors you seen on your screen are often incorrect as a result of computer calibrations. Anyhoo, I’ve compiled a list of my favorites and thought you might find if helpful…and good to know if you aren’t able to buy from a local art store.

Here are all my colors, and I now see the photo is a bit blurry (argh). I need a new storage case, but I’m pretty sure they are all there except for a couple strays. They make me sooo happy! Love those markers, sigh…

Thanks for this list Theresa. I’m going to compare it to what I’ve acquired and see if there are any new ones I “NEED”. I took and loved both of your Letter Whimsy classes. I’m still doodling away and even made something today for my anniversary. Last weekend I took a local class on Copic markers and learned shading and other helpful tips to help me make better “art”. Evidently there are even papers that are better to use than others. Anyway, thanks for the start on a few new hobby.
