Overview and Introduction
to Copic Classic

 
Explain the basic differences between these 2 types of pens
 
Copic Classic Marker
 
The Classic marker was the first marker made by Too Corporation in 1987. This marker comes in a square shape and has the Standard Broad and Standard Fine nibs. The Classic marker comes in 214 colors, which is more colors than Ciao (180) and less colors than Sketch (358). This marker is cherished by designers and illustrators alike and comes in sets of 12, 36 and 72.

The most commonly sold Copic marker in the US is the Sketch, and the reason why many people prefer this marker is because it comes with the Super Brush nib. However, what many people don’t know is that there is an optional brush nib for Classic. In fact, there are actually 9 total nib choices for the Classic marker, which far exceeds the amount of nib choices for Sketch and Ciao.

Another stand out feature of the Classic is that it works the best with the Copic AirBrush System (ABS). Simply slide the broad nib of the marker into the Air Grip and you’re ready to start using it!

What’s great about the Classic marker (and all Copic markers), is that they can be refilled using Copic Ink. The Classic marker can be refilled 5 times using Copic Ink, and if you want to make your own unique marker color, you can buy an empty marker and fill it with whatever combination of inks you’d like!

In addition, you can combine Classic with other mediums, such as colored pencils, to create bold textures and realistic effects. The Classic marker is versatile, long-lasting and sustainable, making this a favorite amongst illustrators and designers alike.
