A few months ago, I did a post about what I consider to be essential colors: Copic 101 - Which colors to buy?

I narrowed them down to 50 - which seems like a lot, but it's really not when you consider that it covers all the color families + grays + skin colors. The recommendations are based on what I personally reach for the most, and they're generally bright (and happy!) colors that go with cute or modern stamps.

I figured I'd share just in case it helps someone. Copics do have 358 colors, so it can be pretty overwhelming to figure out which shades to get.

Another great tool is Sandy Allnock's HEX color chart: Hex Chart - Sandy Allnock

Her chart is the kind of tool I wished I had back when I first got into Copics. It would have made for a much better color collection originally. Not that I mind having a big variety... but if you're trying to be frugal, you want to go with what works from the start.
