Copic Sketch Vs. ShinHan Twin Touch

The Twin Touch markers are Copic Sketch marker's closest competition with refillable ink, vibrant colors, and replaceable nibs, particularly as Twin Touch markers are cheaper than Copics and perform with similar results. Twin Touch markers have a dryer brush tip application, which is perfect for adult coloring (less bleeding). However if you utilize saturation in your markering technique, you would have a difficult time doing so with the Twin Touch markers.  Both of these alcohol based marker brands are an excellent choice for illustrators, although I would say that the Twin Touch is probably comparable to the Copic Ciao marker in price and features.

If you're looking for a cheaper Copic substitute for scrapbooking and stamping, the ShinHan Twin Touch is just the marker to suit your needs.
