    1. Hi Sharon, I was actually on the Crafter’s Companion design team when they came out with the Spectrum Noir markers. They sent me all the colors they had & I did NOT like them. AT ALL. I thought they were way way inferior to the Copics -lower quality, lower blendability, and way lower # of blending families/blending color options. I actually had two of them fall apart when I was trying to open them and the ink pad center part looked like the little ink part inside a Crayola marker! As much as I tried, I never got very good blending with them & I was really unhappy with them.
      I disliked them so much that I actually left the design team because of it and they were ready to offer me a paid position working for their company. As you can see, I feel very strongly that I DO NOT like the Spectrum Noirs and I will never be using them lol.
      With that said, I LOVE LOVE LOVE my Copics and I can’t imagine ever giving them up for another alcohol marker. The only other alcohol markers that I have tried are the ShinHans, and I thought they were about the same quality as Copics but didn’t offer nearly as many color options.
      I would highly recommend pretty much any alcohol marker over the Spectrum Noirs. I know the Copics aren’t cheap & I worked my bootay off saving and collecting them while I was a college student & I still don’t have them all like 4 years later. They are an investment, and I think they are worth every single penny I paid for them. And truthfully, a company couldn’t PAY me enough to use the Spectrum Noirs! LOL
