The pens are good quality however if you are doing a bullet journal-DO NOT BUY THEM. They leak through the page and expand when you write with them.
The colors do not match the lids at all. They bleed quite a bit too. But I guess it's worth it for the price paid.
There were some things I liked about these markers and some I did not. The reviews I read were confusing, so I was not sure whether or not they would bleed through. For the record, they DO! I did research and found out that this kind of marker is alcohol based, and that type bleeds. I like the colors these markers come in, but definitely found gaps in the colors. I suspect a larger set would fill that in. The caps are difficult for me to open and close, although I do like the sizes of the tips. Both tips are nicely pointed, but you still can color or write with them. Overall I would not recommend them though because of the bleeding, gaps in the colors, and the inability to open and close easily.
Really nice markers, colors are great, but not what I expected. A lot of bleed through on high weight paper, and quite a bit of ink spread.
Nice selection of colors and comes with carry case. Tend to bleed a lot so not good for all uses especially fine details but for general bulk coloring they are fine.
Markers bleed a lot so it's hard to be accurate. The colors are also inconsistent. Some colors are just as they are shown while others vary significantly. Even the little tag that came with the markers said "Made in Chian" instead of "Made in China". This was the first hint that quality was not checked well and once I used the markers it was confirmed.
[EDIT] The customer service was amazing and they refunded me right away. I don't think the markers are too bad but on trace, they bleed a lot which is probably not what most people use them on. (It was originally 2 stars before I experienced their customer service.)
Okay deal for the amount of markers you're getting, but I'm a bit disappointed. The markers bleed unpredictably, which can really mess up a drawing. The color selection was also weird- 8 shades of green were included with mine, but only 2 different reds (neither of which were close to a standard red- one was almost pink, and the other was basically a deep brown when dried). Not to mention that the "fluorescent" markers are actually highlighters, and don't color like a normal alcohol-based marker, but instead are streaky and the same color you could get from any office supply store. Maybe good for beginners or artists looking for something to just practice with, but you might just want to take advantage of the Dick Blick store sales and coupons to buy better markers. :/
I read all of the reviews before purchasing and came to one conclusion: these are NOT Copics by any stretch of the imagination. The color saturation is great, but the ink is excessively thin. The colors bleed, making it near impossible to get a crisp line. If you do watercolor artwork, these are right up your alley and will give a lovely watercolor effect. However, if you want crisp lines and the ink to stay where you put it, these are not the product for you.
I love the dual tips...I don't love how incredibly juicy (?) the ink is. Bleeds through even very thick paper. I purchased to use with adult coloring books and these are completely inappropriate for that. Even the fine tip is too thick and free-flowing for more detailed coloring.
These are smooth to color with! But found about 5 of them were drying up after the first month. I didn't use them anymore than the other markers. Thankfully I have other markers that I've made do.
