Good black cartooning markers
from North Carolina
Comments about Chartpak Ad Markers:
I exclusively use the "Super Black" color of Chartpak markers for caricature and cartooning. I find them to be very good.Pros:The tips are strong, meaning they can hold up to relatively heavy-handed use, and they're great for getting thick, medium, and thin strokes with just a turn of the hand. I use the markers on smoother "manga" paper, so I've found the tips do wear quicker on paper with more tooth/texture.The Super Black ink is very dark and solid. But you can get the typical "marker stroke" if that's desired.Cons:The markers have a VERY strong odor and I assume they're not safe to breath in an enclosed room for long periods of time.I have occasionally had a marker tip "break loose" and spin in the barrel of the marker as I try to draw with it (but it's rare).I haven't used the various colors of the markers with each other, but when I have used other markers with Chartpak, there is some slight bleeding of colors (this might have a bit more to do with my paper choice though).Overall, I think the Chartpak Ad Markers (Super Black) are a very good choice for design work or cartooning.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

streaky, smelly, but pretty effective markers
from Provo, UT
The markers streak, which can be a really good thing if you want shading and depth, but can be annoying if you make a mistake and have to color an area all over again. All in all, good markers.
You get alot of bang for your buck

Comments about Chartpak Ad Marker Sets:
Other than the strong smell, I enjoy the quality and versatility of the Charpak brand. I used them for my fashion illustrations and the blending is so good especially for skin tones
While I like these markers, they bleed through the paper a lot. Also, they spread easily and it can be hard to control the amount of ink that comes out of them. The blender marker extrudes a lot of ink and can spread like crazy. Overall, average markers.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Always the markers our in house architect requests!!
Fast and Accurate Delivery
from Delray Beach, FL
They were offering a sale on markers I needed for a class for Design School. I purchased over 20 individual markers and they came nicely bundled and each one was accounted for. The package also arrived a few days before the estimated delivery date! Very easy process to order online. I will definitely be ordering online the next time I need something.

Perfect for my architecture class and the variety of colors was amazing. Only drawback was the odor but not a deal breaker.
The markers are nice quality they haveven great color pay off, my only complaint is that they smell bad.
from Herriman, Utah
Good variety of vibrant colors.But be careful opening the bag -- some of the lids had come off. Also, take the lids off gently or ink might splatter.Otherwise, I'm happy with the pens.
I think these are the greatest markers on the market. Even in back order they try to get the markers as quick as they can.
