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.
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.
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)
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!
