Class updates & winner

Printers & Coloring
I want to thank everyone for their help in commenting on printer types and coloring earlier this week. As you can see if you read the comments there are many kinds of printers and inks out there. Some work for coloring with Copics, some don't, some need to be heat-set, others just need to have the printout sit for a while.

Skim through the comments to see if your printer type is listed. Otherwise, just carefully test your printer's ink before you print up a bunch of things to color. If in doubt, just photocopy it.

Prize winner
There were 120 comments, and our cute little bird has a lot of things he could be saying. I went to to use their number generator to find our Prize winner:

The winner of the prize pack is Carly!!

. "I guess Santa Claus really does exist" or
"Yes, Crafters there IS a Santa Claus"

2. I have a HP Photosmart C7280 All in One.
And I'm a Copic Virgin so I have no idea how they do with my printer. But, maybe it will be my lucky day & I will soon find out!

Carly, it IS your lucky day! send me an e-mail to claim your prize so you will no longer be a Copic Virgin.

There were a lot of really cute sayings, so I had a hard time picking a new saying for the birdie. Check back for the final colored image and what the little bird thinks about the snowman with the giant Copic Marker.

As we get closer to the January Craft & Hobby Association shows, we are also getting closer to having all the Certification classes for Feb-April picked out. If you or your local stamping store will be attending the wholesale only Winter CHA Show you can stop by our booth, #2563 to meet all of our instructors. Get to know your regional instructor and get a special workshop set up at your store. You can also get ideas about teaching your own Copic papercrafting workshops, so stop by and chat.

There are a few options during both the CHA Consumer Craft Supershow and the CHA Wholesale Show.

• If you are a store, design team member, or instructor/employee for a papercrafting store you can register now for one of two Certification Classes. These are Beginner/Intermediate classes and are intended for people who will be going on to teach what they've learned to others. Certificatins are technique only, and no finished product will be made. Classes run from 9 am to 4pm and you can pick either Friday, Jan. 22nd or Saturday, Jan. 23. Send an e-mail to for an application. Note: Remaining spaces will open to the public after the first of the year. Get an application in now to be on the waiting list for these classes if you are not affiliated with a store or company.

• If you are a papercrafter searching for a good beginner workshop where you make a finished card and learn basic techniques you can take the Copic Cardmaking class during the CHA Craft Supershow. Friday Jan. 22nd from 1 to 3pm. Cost is $30 and you make 3 finished cards. Note: If this fills they will add extra sessions, so register NOW!

• If you are just wanting to hold, touch, color, and know why people are obsessed with Copic Markers you can stop by the SplitcoastStampers booth for a fun and cute make n' take all day, both Friday or Saturday of the Craft Supershow (if you're early they may also have cupcakes!)

Papercrafting Copic Certifications
Although the San Antonio classes this weekend are full and closed, there are still some classes currently open and will be opening to the public in the next few weeks. Sign up now for the waiting list even if you are not affiliated with a store or other papercrafting company!

If you need an application or to get on the mailing list for any of these locations please e-mail
This list will be updated, so keep looking for more locations near you in 2010!

Marianne, I am looking for a great storage system for my Copic Sketch markers. I have 4 of the EK Success Zig Marker storage boxes but they are full and I have many more copics to store. Which of the copic storage units do you recommend for the Sketch markers? Please mail me at Thanks!!! Smiles, Laura
