As if over 350 colors weren’t enough, these premium markers are available in several different types, with varying tip sizes and uses.

The other types of Copic Markers include Wide and Ciao markers- below is a handy guide to distinguish all the different types of Copics. Experiment with Copics to find the type that’s right for you for each project; there is a Copic Marker for every need.

These have a broad tip on one side, and a fine tip on the other. This gives them a unique versatility, allowing them to adapt to different project needs. The broad side of the Copic Original Marker behaves almost like a paintbrush than a marker, which lets you create beautiful, painting-like artwork without the hassle and mess of paints. The narrow side isn’t quite as fine as the Copic Sketch tip, making these markers ideal for basic crafts, “painting,” and coloring less than fine detail work and complex drawings.
Copic Sketch Markers are the most popular style of marker, and they also have two tips, one broad and one fine. The fine tip of the sketch marker however, is highly precise for the tiniest of detail and most precise lines. Their dual sides lend them the versatility of their Copic Original cousins, but with the precision of a pen on one side rather than a marker. Copic Sketch markers are also compatible with the Copic Airbrush system, and are available in the widest variety of colors.
As their name implies, these markers are the widest type of Copic Marker, making them great for backgrounds and large areas in need of color. When you need the broad strokes of a paintbrush, Copic Wide Markers are the perfect choice.
These are the best way to get Copic Markers Cheap, and are a great starting place in the world of Copics. Copic Ciao Markers are less expensive, don’t hold as much ink, and are not available in the full color spectrum. They are also not compatible with the Copic Airbrush system. If you are new to Copics, need Copic Markers on a budget, or just want to dip your toe in the water of Copics, Ciao Markers are your best bet.
