COPIC Price Comparison!

These pens are hot and so many scrapbooking and stamp stores are now selling them!

It's a good idea to shop around though because the prices have just gone up (orwill be going up) and everyone seems to have a different price/deal!

I did a quick comparison shop for COPIC markers (in the Lower Mainland of BC so this is in CAD$) and discovered the following:

Be Creative, Maple Ridge $5.95 (price increasing Feb 1 - carries both Original and Sketch)

Photo Express, Maple Ridge $6.49

Clipper Street, Coquitlam $6.50

I'm Impressed, Vancouver $6.85 (Original only)

Scrapbook Warehouse, Vancouver $7.49 (Original only)

Precious Memories, Langley $7.69 (Original only)

Scrapbook City, Surrey $7.69

OPUS, Vancouver $7.90 (Online store price)

Making Memories, Burnaby $7.99

Petrov's, North Vancouver $9.95 (carries both Original and Sketch - new price went up $1.75!!)

BOTTOM LINE: Shop Around!

If you find a retailer in the Lower Mainland that I've missed please let me know and I'll add them to my list!

*prices are subject to change!

** Some stores offer promotions (Be Creative Baker's Dozen buy 12 get one 1, Precious Memories has a 20% off sale on now - seems to be on sale every time I've been in! and Scrapbook City offer a 20% off discount if you buy their 36 pen sets).

*** Be Creative also does mail order to Canadian customers via email just tell them Marie sent you!


  1. Check out Scrapbook Warehouse (Oak/SW Marine Dr, Vancouver). They carry Copics but have not had the chance to check them out. Prices are within the CAD 6-7.

  2. I'm curious, can you tell me what the difference is between origianl, sketch and ciao? I have some ciao sets that I've been getting through Gina K in a copic club. I've been paying $25US for 6 markers a month. Is that good? I hope so. Now I just have to learn how to use them!

  3. The best thing about Be Creative isn't even that they have the best prices around but the have the BEST staff around. IT IS SUCH A GREAT STORE!

    I'm so glad Marie introduced me to it.

  4. WOW! THanks so much for the price comparison, and I love that they're in CAD$ I will definitely want to check those out!
