Let me start off by saying I LOVE markers. I do. At any time in my house there are several plastic pencil containers completely full of different markers. I have tried Crayola, Sharpie, Roseart, several generic brands and now Bic. And I have got to say I loved them! I was very surprised by just how easy the Bic Mark-it were to write with, how smooth they drew over paper and the color was consistent throughout the whole project.
One of my biggest pet peeves with markers is bleeding through! If I wanted to color on two pieces of paper I would, and I have actually messed up several notebooks and assignments growing up from the bleed-through on markers. I was a little apprehensive about these just because I had never used them before. I stacked up several white pieces of printing paper and started drawing.
Now I am not the greatest drawer in the world and most of the time my pictures come out looking like something a kindergartener would draw, but I enjoy it and that’s really all that matters. After about half an hour of drawing I was finally finished and turned it over to see how the bleed-through was, surprisingly very little! It only bled through to the other side on the places that I pressed for longer, such as the beginning of letters.
Since I used regular paper instead of actual drawing paper that is a good thing that it didn’t bleed much. The colors are super bright and they stayed consistent throughout the entire project. I have to say so far these are my favorite! I have been using my Bic Mark-it’s all over my house now! From writing on my calendar to labeling jars in my kitchen. My set also came with an easy storage case that open up and keeps all the markers super neat! These come in a range of colors and I bought the 24 colors with fine tip set, and honestly couldn’t be more pleased!
I wanted to do a better picture but my daughter got a hold of it before I could and ate it. Yes… She ate it. (she’s one.)
Crappy photo I know. It doesn’t do the Bic Mark-it markers justice at all!
