I used a 40% off coupon and got them for $9.00 - that's only $1.50 apiece! In my experience, all of the alcohol-based markers play well together, so you can mix and match and get what you want/can afford.

I tried out the markers this morning, and I'll be going back for more. One thing that I was really impressed with about these markers is that the 6-packs are designed to give you all of the shading options within a color range - cool grays, reds, greens, etc. I look at the available options for Copics and I'm overwhelmed - so many choices - I need someone to pluck out a few that will work together, and that's what this manufacturer did...
Okay, Sue, just want you to know how persuasive you are....I just ordered 3 6-pack sets of the Spectrum Noir markers. I couldn't bear to wait and find a coupon, but I got a pretty good deal on ebay. I got a pink set, purple set, and the set of Pales. Can't wait to get them.
