ShinHan Touch Markers Review

Recently I came across ShinHan Touch Markers and since the cost of these markers is almost half of the Copic Marker with most of the features same as Copics, it caught my interest and I immediately decided to add it to my store. I ordered one sample pack which I received yesterday and I tried it. I was extremely happy with the result. Since I do not have Copics and never used Copics so I can't compare it with Copics but I can safely tell you pros and cons of these markers.

First of all a bit info on these according to the company:


The best value in high-end permanent markers! 
  • Odorless and permanent 
  • More ink, very few additives
  • Extremely rich and intense colors
  • The best fade-resistance of any marker
  • Easy shading, by layering color
  • Non-streaking, even application, superb nylon tips
  • Square barrel, won't roll off tables
  • Colorless blender for gradations and soft blends 
  • Excellent for sketching anywhere, graphic compositions, fashion drawing, interior designing, mechanical illustration, and more!
Now my experience:

First they are not completely odorless, you will have some odor of alcohol while using them but it vanishes quickly, so your projects will be odorless.

They are non-refillable (so far I came to know about this from various sites and reviews) *
*They are refillable

They have a good quality nib and colors are also lovely, the main work of blending works great with them too. There is also one colorless blender marker which can be used for much improved blending. However I rarely needed the colorless blender as the normal blending was good for me.

Here are two different images which I tried to color using ShinHan Touch Markers (pack of 12, Pastel Colors):


This one is colored on a Stamped Image which is from Vintage theme of La Blanche Stamps. I love this stamp and after coloring it using Touch Markers, I could only say wowww. The colors blended perfectly with the flowers which came out beautifully. There were only two colors used for flowers and the effect is far better than I would have obtained from any other colors.


This Digi Stamp is from Sliekje Digital Stamps (Free to download from her blog). This was my first coloring using Alcohol markers so couldn't keep track of the edges, later I found the trick i.e. to keep one extra sheet of paper under the coloring image so that it may not smudge.

The main Pros of the Marker are:
  • Projects don't contain odor
  • Cheap Alternate to Copics
  • The Nibs are more stronger
  • The thicker edge is more thick than copic (I found this info online)
  • Blends perfectly
  • Fade resistant
  • Good grip
  • Good range of colors (Total 168 Colors till date)
  • They are refillable (I came to know about this on 15th Jan 2012)

The cons of the Marker are:

  • They are non-refillable


The ShinHan Touch Markers are manufactured in Korea. One thing for sure, if you are user of Copics then you might not find them good enough but if you are First time user then it will be best for you.


Note: The above review is based on my experience with the markers, this experience may vary according to people and their usage pattern.

Merry Christmas

Wishing you all a very Happy Christmas. and don't forget to checkout at Imaginationsonline.com as for all the crafters we have a special coupon code valid for 24 hours only.

 12th in my personal challenge (15 days - 15 cards).



Another beautiful die cut card, this time the template is lovely bubbles, I used Silhouette Cameo to do the delicate cutting work of the leaves. The size of the card is 3.5 inch square.

Latest Addition on stores

Hi,

All the newsletter subscribers of Imaginationsonline.com had already received the announcement but here I am making it officially. We have procured new range of products, Sakur Gel Pens and Shinhan Touch Markers.

Today I received My first sample of products which are of exceptionally great quality. Here are products which I got:

Shinhan Touch Markers 12 Set Pastel

& Sakura Metallic Gel Pens, Moonlight Gen Pens and Glaze Gel Pens.

I will soon put up a first hand review of the Touch Markers as I am also very much happy to tell you that they are a lot cheaper than Copics and are of almost same quality as Copics. No need to hunt any further for Copics. These markers cost Rs. 160 per piece rather than the regular Rs. 320 per piece of Copics.

They are also Alcohol Based and Blends very smoothly. Wait for a full review.

Handmade Paper Roses

Today I was watching youtube for various tutorials and I was very much inspired by the tutorial from Apieceofcraftdotcom which showed a great and easy method to make Grunge Paper Roses. The link for the tutorial is Here.

There were some mini adjustments in my roses, First I do not have the Flower Die (or even Big Shot for personal use). So instead of looking for die cut petals, I made some random 6 petal design on paper and then cut them using my scissor. I used Tim Holtz Wild Honey Distress Ink Pad to color the Yellowish flowers, and for pink flowers I used home made Color Spray.

I also cut 2 small flower petals using Silhouette SD (The yellow ones in front)

Here is pic of my Roses:


I used normal sparkle tubes to add the sparkle layer on the first two flowers.

New Year Card

Third card in my personal challenge (15 days - 15 cards).

Here is the card:


This card is A2 size and the materials used in it are:
The tag was printed and then cut with Tags Die of Big Shot

My First Paper Quilling

 Hi,

I was always fascinated by Paper Quilling but was never brave enough to try it but yesterday I decided to try it and luckily I found a very good tutorial at Quilled Creations, their easter basket tutorial.

It was easy and very informative hence I opened up my box of quilling materials and immediately decided to make it. There was one problem though, I do not have curling coach, but then I made a new JUGAD curling coach, I will tell about in later post.

Here is my finished Basket:



The pics are taken at night so the colors may not look that attractive but they are looking lovely. I did some variation from the original tutorial, for example I used thinner strips, instead of 6 colors with 4 strips of each, I used 12 colors with 2 strip of each. I also added Mod Podge to give the glossy effect and to protect the strips.

Now very soon I will give another try to quilling, but for now more focus towards my kids health.

New Layout for Imaginationsonline.com Store

Finally I have set up the new layout for Imaginationsonline.com, now its based on Opencart. Previously I used Zen Cart for the site but it lacked a lot of reporting features but Opencart has them all. Though during the transition I am not able to migrate my old data from Zen Cart to Opencart but slowly I will build up catalog.

Now enough of the technical blah blah blah, the main point is that we have a new fresh looking layout and we will be slowly adding up products.

Old customers need to register again but now you will be able to get more benefits with this layout so I guess this much hiccup is forgivable.

Also one more important point to notice, Due to certain taxes and fluctuation of the dollar price the prices of products will increase by 4%-12%. Old orders are still for the old prices but any new order will have the new pricing.

Now the benefits for the customer:


1. We have now two shipping options, Flat Shipping and Free Shipping. The flat shipping will be Rs. 250 for any order.
    Free shipping will be for all the orders above Rs. 8000.


2. Prices will be only visible after you log on in the system. (Due to some cache problem the price might show as $ but they are INR)


3. Reward Poinst: This is the latest addition, now from time to time Reward Points will be offered, for example on showcasing our products in your projects, making purchases, referring friends etc. You will have the option to buy items from these Reward Points.


4. We are also working with Debit Card acceptance but still not implementing it because due to service charges levied by the Debit Card/Credit Card processor we will have to increase the prices by 8% (They charge 8% per transaction) Do tell me if you really want this option.


5. We will also have option to Pre-order certain items. So you can pre-order and get them within 15-20 days.


More options will be rolled over time. Stay tuned.

DT Winners

 Hi friends,

Thanks for being so supportive and participating in the DT Call of Imaginationsonline.com , to be honest I didn't expected this much number of entries :).

It took a lot of time for me and my partners to check every entry and vote on different aspects. Our criteria was the following:

1. Projects itself
2. Photography
3. Description

There was voting by four of us so someone got more votes from one person while get less votes by other. This is important as due to it we might not have gotten the best person but we have got the persons who are more accepted by all of us.

Without troubling you more with my long post here are our DT members selected by us:

1. Anita Kejriwal
2. Mallika Kejriwal

Apart from these two winners the close runner ups were:

1. Kavi Tha
2. Pooja
3. Kalindi Sharma

So now the fun part, Anita & Mallika are our DT Members (as long as they follow our rules and would like to be our DT members). And Kavi Tha,  Pooja and Kalindi will also receive free DT Goodies in Dec 2011 as being our runner up.

Apart from the above DT members Ujjwal from Handmade with Love and Neha Jain from Steps towards crafting are our honorary DT Member.

Kindly send me your addresses by Email to Adityastar@gmail.com , so that I may send you DT goodies and also send more information regarding the DT work.

Now some information regarding the store, First of all we are doing a major design change in our store which will reflect soon. Second due many factors the prices of products may increase 5-10% which will be like Rs. 5-10 on a product of Rs. 100, however to cope up with the price increase there will be Flat shipping charge and also Free shipping on certain purchases.

DT members will get special discount and so will be old customers. Don't get upset if you are not selected. All of you were great but unfortunetly some have to be left down.

Also I am looking forward for your suggestions to improve the Store.

For Sale: Used Silhouette SD

SOLD, SHIPPED & DELIVERED

Hi friends,

This is first time I am going to sell anything used and I am not very good at this. Anyway, recently I purchased Silhouette Cameo and hence my old Silhouette SD will be of no use, so I want to sell it off.

The following things are included in this sale:


1. Silhouette SD Digital Cutter (almost new in condition with no marks on it, I keep my machines with care) This machine is 7-8 month old but used very less as I have changed the blade only one time.


2. The Cables, Software CD (though the latest software is available on net for free)


3. One Extra Brand New Blade (This is worth Rs. 1300)


4. Free Shipping (atleast worth Rs. 1000)


5. 2 Custom Cutting Mats (not worth much, but will help you in cutting)

What things are damaged : Silhouette Cutting Mats, they were not sticky at all and even with one used they were useless. However I will include them too.

Also I used $10 Card hence to overcome it I will provide a CD containing 20 Designs (Worth $20).

I must say that the condition of the machine is excellent without any mark or any damage. So don't worry about that. I will also include the pic of the machine tomorrow in this post.

Price: Price is not a big issue as the machine is not much use for me, however don't expect it very cheap. I am expecting a price of 11K - 12K, including free shipping, Prices are negotiable. So if you are interested then feel free to mail me. My mail id is adityastar@gmail.com


Note: This sale is for India only.

A Long Post


Friends, first of all sorry that the result of Blog Candy is delayed for one day. Yesterday I was busy with my stall at JP International School, Shahjahanpur and hence today I rested, actually not rested but enjoyed my new car and new HCL Tablet. Today also I received my lot of books which I ordered for Imaginationsonline.com, I  will soon upload them to the store.

First of all a little warning, this post is pic heavy.

Now today I wanted to share three great things with you, first the pics of my stall. The event went great and the best thing that there was no person in the whole visitors who missed my stall, everyone visited us and were fascinated with the cool craft supplies, papertoys, handmade cards and quilled envelops (which was sent by Neha Jain). My stall also won the Best stall prize and I got a Mobile Phone as prize.

Some Pics:

Hand Made Cards and Quilled Envelops

Pie Lane Products

A View of products

Me along with my partner Kumar Singh

Pattern Paper Pads


Stamps and Ink Pads

Paper Toys, The Gods Paper Toys are by Toonoholic


Second, today I received my books lot and though there are many books and comics in that lot which will soon be added to the online store but the one which I loved most and is most notable one is : Papertoy Monsters: 50 Cool Papertoys you can make yourself, this book is imported from US and is a compilation of 50 scary (actually cute) Paper Monsters designed by Castleforte and 24 more papertoy designers.The best part of this book is that all the toys are precut, prescored, so basically you will need to pop-out, fold and glue to make your own. This book will soon be available to order through Imaginationsonline. The Indian Price of this book is Rs. 900 but for limited time I will be offering free shipping with this book. The stock is limited and I won't be importing more before next year, so you can get one now or wait till Jan if you missed.

Here are pics of the Book Cover and all the toys it have:




Third and last, on Sunday I created 20 cards in less than 3 hours and they all were liked in the stall, I am so happy that I want you all to get bored by seeing them, hence I am posting all the pics here :)

Embellishment : Pie Lane
Stamp: Digi Stamp by sliekje
Butterfly : JEF Punch, paper from same collection

Paper Used: Free Bird Paper
Butterfly : MS Butterfly Punch, paper from Echo Park Be Mine Collection

Embellishment : Peachy Keen
Rubon:  Life Quotes

Paper Used: Multiple Scraps
Embellishment : Peachy Keen
and random Die Cut



















Sorry, I couldn't add all the info of items used right now as it is tiresome work. I will add details over coming days, however all the items used in the above cards are available through Imaginationsonline.com

Do tell me if you liked them?
