Re: Remembering the old Designs, Magic Markers
I've found a replacement that's pretty close to the old "Design" markers. It's called "Markette" and you can order it from different vendors in Canada. Copic, Chartpak, Tombo, Sharpie, etc. do not have a tip that is anything like the old "Design" marker. Chartpak's tip is hard, as is the Sharpie tip, and the brush markers like Copic, Tombo, are too brush like and don't spring back quickly enough. The Markette has a firm tip with a similar width, shape and feel to the old Design. It is solid, but has some slight springiness that lets you vary line quality, unlike the Sharpie and others of its ilk.
