Choosing the best Copic markers is really a personal choice, both the Copic Original and the Ciao Markers are very similar. They come in the same colour ranges, both have a colourless blending marker and their polyester nibs are almost identical in sizing. The stand out difference of these two markers is actually the shape of the markers barrel, Ciao markers are cylinder whilst the Copic Originals is square. Apart from appearance another major point of difference between the Copic Original and the Ciao is their pricing and this is due to the fact that the Ciao markers hold 40% less ink than the Copic Originals. The cheaper price point is great if you want to try Copics for the first time.
Some say the Copic Ciaos are the best markers for illustration and for some this might be true but they are also very popular amongst card makers, crafters and scrapbookers. Serious artists and designers such as graphic artists, illustrators, draftsman and fashion designers generally buy from the Original Copic marker range.
Even though the Ciao marker is the cheapest marker in the Copic range the quality of the marker is superb, the nylon nib will stand continuous use and will always retain its shape. The double ended marker with its brush nib on one end and chisel tip on the other will always give you clear and precise strokes of colour. They are easily refilled with the Copic ink bottles and their caps come with an inner seal to prevent choking if swallowed by children.
