Vertical Organization (Copic Marker Block Stand)


I have to tell you, this is the sweetest bit of organization ever. I used to store my copic markers in a copic wire stand, but needed more space. I loved the look, but I needed to go vertical. I ordered these copic block stands that gave me a little more playing room. I ordered 4 of them. They fit nicely on top of each other with 2 views of my markers. I love it!

Karen, I have been thinking about Copic Markers. Tell me why they are better than other markers...

Hi Brenda, Copics are awesome markers to use. They are alcohol based markers and not waterbased. They enable you to airbrush beautiful when coupled with the air brush system. The copic markers are refillable and come in a wide array of colors, which gives you so many layering options. You are also able to layer and blend colors to create some beautiful work without tearing your cardstock. Most waterbased markers aren't as kind to cardstock. I would choose alcohol markers anyday over waterbased markers. Now I do like to purchase markers to match my cardstock when I buy from CTMH and SU, but those markers are for journaling and coordinating purposes only and they are waterbased. They are very good quality, but again waterbased. I can spritz with my SU and CTMH markers, but nothing at all compared to what I can do with my copics. If you want to test a few before taking the plunge, run down to your nearest Hobby Lobby. They sell them individually. I am sure that you will LOVE them though. I purchased my sketch markers from Periodstyle.com and the customer service was awesome. You might as well plan to purchase a set...*:) Hugs, Karen
