Copic Marker Club

By now most people know that we have the Copic Markers in store.
And that we have classes and clubs for the markers. In fact, the current club that starts in November filled in 3 days.
But you may not know that the new club will start in January and that sign ups start tomorrow, November 1st.

In case you missed the details before, here they are again...

Club will begin January 2009 and end in June 2009.

How much does it cost?
$35 per month for 6 months

What do I get?
Each month you will receive 5 Copic Sketch Markers. The colors are pre-determined based on the techniques you will be learning in the free class offered each month. This class is only open to Copic Maker Club members. Club Members will also receive a special folder for all their Color Charts, Handouts and materials.

What happens if I can’t attend the class that month?
If for some reason you are unable to attend the Free Marker Club Class of the month, you will still receive your markers as well as any handout information we provide the members at class that month. You may pick up your markers on or after the class date.
I am currently looking into a way to make the lessons available online as well using videos or picture posts.

What is covered in class?
The Free Marker Club Classes provide hands on experience with your new markers from a Certified Copic Designer. These markers are wonderful tools when they are used properly and over the course of 6 months, they will become an invaluable tool in your arsenal. These classes are technique and not project based classes. So, although you will not be walking away with a full finished card or page, you will be walking away with lots and lots of knowledge and experience.

What’s the difference between the Copic Marker Basics Class and the Free Marker Club Class?
Besides the fact that the Club Class is free and only open to members, it is also much more advanced over the months as opposed to the Basics class. Also, the Basics Class uses our store markers and thus, the hands on experience is not as thorough as the Club Class. The Basics Class is meant to get you started with Copics and for people who are on the fence about purchasing them at all.

How do I pay for the Club?
The Copic Marker Club is $35 per month. (The cost of the markers is increasing in 2009) The first month is pre-paid when you register. After that, the additional months are charged to the credit card you provide on the date of class each month.

When will the next club begin if I can’t attend now?
Since our clubs last 6 months, this club will end in time for summer vacations. The next club will probably not start until fall. If there are enough people to form another group that will begin in January, we will consider running 2 clubs from January to June. Please put your name on the waiting list if you are unable to sign up before the class fills.

Call or stop in the store to register.
This club fills extremely fast, so act fast.
(We open at 10am on Saturday)
