Thanks for the comparison.
I guess I will be investing in some more Memento colors.

Pretty Invitation!


This was so helpful! I'm just "getting into" these markers & I was so disappointed, because I used the wrong ink pad! Thank you again!

This is a very helpful guide for stampers and Copic users.I always find it difficult to get Memento Tuxedo Black in craft shops here in Singapore. This gives me other options. Thank you!


Love the card you made.

Hi, Swati --
You cant go wrong with either Neenah Solar or Natural White cardstock or X-Press It Blending Card. Each have different characteristics, so you may prefer one over the other. Have fun experimenting!

Thank you for that great tutorial. I think it is the only one on the Web. The three parts with the picture are in my files, now.
You make me happy :-)

Do you know if printer inks have the same problem when using a digi stamp. Someone told me that inkjet printer inks will run too?

Thanks SO much. I too bought copics and even asked the clerk at the craft store about inks and she told me Staz-on. I got so frustrated that it didn't work. I too haven't used my markers much because of this. One other question, Does the type of paper matter? I use Stampin' Up's whisper white most of the time and it has a slight coating on it. Does this matter?


I was introduced to Copic markers about a year ago. Every image I tried to color was terrible because the black ink I used smeared no matter how careful I was. I bought different markers because of that experience. Obviously, that group of ladies I was cropping with, were not aware of the special ink requirements of shading with Copics. Even the owner of the Copic markers. Thank you for this information. I can't wait to try these markers again:]


this is perfect!!..I just used Verafine black and I had to go over the black lines after using my copics..

Thank you for posting this.


Wow, really needed this. Thanks so much for sharing! =)

Thank you! I've been testing this stuff myself and it gets a bit expensive. Thanks for the recommendations!


Thanks so much! I know now I need Memento for my markers.

I like that you used the pictures to demonstrate the information that you wanted to get across. It helped immensely. I am definitely going to bookmark this information - I still need to get Copics. The comparisons is really helpful - that way you know what ink to go out and purchase instead of trying them all - you have done it for us. Thanks.

This is enormously helpful, Sharon. And your invitation is wonderful!


Thanks for the great comparison info and pictures.
Cute card; the aprons are colored beautifully.


Awesome tutorial. I like Momento's Tuxedo Black best too.
