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 firstname.lastname@example.org just tell them Marie sent you!
