<a name="online">ON-LINE MERCHANTS

Jerry's Artarama - http://www.jerrysartarama.com

Notes: Great resource for Prismacolor Markers. They have on going sales on their markers and reasonable shipping prices and deliver times. Right now their Grey Marker sets (12 markers) are $20.99 each and their 24 Marker set is $41.99.
<hr>
Dick Blick - www.dickblick.com

Large selection and they always seem to have specials for a variety of items. Most of the prismacolor markers on dickblick are cheaper than jerrysartarama. Few exceptions for 1 of the larger sets. I'd rather go with the copic markers cause of the line quality and durability. Copic markers are refillable and don't stink as bad as the prismacolor markers. They're good if you can afford them.
<hr>
Office Max - http://www.officemax.com

Dozens of locations throughout San Antonio. There are four that I can think of within 10 mins of the school.
