Cheap Marker Review!

Hi friends! Today we are going to take a look at a line of inexpensive markers I picked up on sale at ACmoore (3/$5) a few weeks ago.

You can see them in action in today’s video!

The stamp set I am using is a free Sale-A-Bration stamp set from Stampin up! If you want to order this or anything else from SU and you don’t have a Demo please contact my friend Wendy Cranford.
Pros:
Price $3.99 regular retail but they were on sale 3/$5 when I bought them (often the 12 pack goes on sale for $19.99 and the singles for 2/$5, I think they go on sale often or maybe they are on sale a lot because they are brand new)

The nibs are similar in quality as prismacolor, chisel and bullet nibs.

Cons:
Not many colors in range (about 50)

Some of the color indexes on lid do not match the ink color accurately. (not a huge deal if you make a swatch, it is just tough to choose colors when buying going from the display)

Bottom Line:
I like them, they are similar quality to Prismacolors that are $5.50 (actually I think the nibs are identical) but they have fewer colors than Prismas or Promarkers. I have a lot of other alcohol markers so I will use them with what I already have for a good selection. I think they are a good buy for someone who wants to get into markers and not spend a lot (if you get them on sale) just make sure to make a color chart so you can be sure you select the correct color ink. That Is a good idea for any markers.

I have been a slacker on the blog this week, I have a side project that has been consuming most of my time and the kids are off on winter break but I hope to be back posting daily now! Thanks for stopping by and til next time happy crafting!
