Usually August is a bit uneventful as we all get back into routine and get ready for school to start. Not the case this August, we’ve got a lot going on at CMS!
First, as of August 1, 2011, the prices of our Copic Markers will increase. This comes directly from the manufacturer, .Too and is applicable to every single Copic retailer. The price will increase approx. 50 cents per marker, sets will see an adjustment as well. .Too is located in Japan, we ask that you keep them in your prayers are their country recovers from the terrible difficulties they have had to face in the wake of the tsunami and nuclear crisis. You can beat the price increase by placing an order at Copic Marker Scrapbooking BEFORE August 1.
