That's great-if you have the disposable income for it. Some simply do not. And if you don't, you don't. I wouldn't want to dig into my household funds to buy markers. If a person has a certain # of dollars to spend, it makes sense that they would want to get the most markers for their money and maybe get a touch less of the perceived quality. I bet they still produce great looking cards.
