My favorite markers
from Oklahoma City
Comments about Chartpak Ad Markers:
I use Chartpak AD markers for cartooning, caricatures and illustration. For some people, they bleed too much, but that's part of their magic for me. They have a watercolor-like quality. I use the fine point markers for caricature linework, best tool for the job.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Definitely I would buy again.
Covers and blends nicely.
Super juicy and amazing
My absolute favorite markers. They are crazy juicy and rich. I mostly use markers to color in flat areas with a single tone, and with these I can do that without any streaks or imperfections.Compared to these, my Prismacolor markers feel dry, streaky, and scratchy. Which might be desireable for different uses, but I much prefer the Chartpak.

Planning on getting more.

Comments about Chartpak Ad Marker Sets:
I'm using these for a college 2D Design class, and I really love the way they are. I want to get more (maybe some more colors) because they are really fun to use as well. Only down side is the smell, but you will get that with any kind of marker so it's not something you could change with another brand.

This is my project and it's turning out great.
Chartpak is the Best
from Tucson, AZ
I love Chartpak Ad Design markers. I have been using them exclusively for coloring my cartoon artwork and for preliminary fine art for 35+ years. No kidding. Nothing else comes close to their capabilities as far as I'm concerned. I've tried a lot of pens in my time. Chartpak is my choice -- hands down.
Quality service, product and price
from Canyon Country California
I am a picture framer and I use these Chartpak pens to color the ends of the frames prior to joining.
Toxic and bleeds terribly
I used this product on some 80lb paper, and it bled. It doesn't have those clear lines that you'd expect from a marker. It also has a weird smell to it, but I can manage that as long as the quality's great. But the quality's not great.Probably would be good for blending, as long as you use it lightly.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I could barely stand using these. They were so toxic-smelling I had to open all the windows in my house.
