I would say 25-30. I use the Iris photo keeper to store mine by color (red/pink/purple, blue, green, neutrals, yellow/orange, etc). I used my label maker to mark the top so I can just pull out the color I need.

I don't do a lot of the shading, just some occasional stamp coloring, so it works well for me and should last me awhile.

I have quite a few. I keep them in a gallon size ziplock bag. It fills about half the bag, maybe less, maybe more. I just throw that bag into my crop bag. Not fancy, but it works. For now.

I use two Color Cubbies stacked on top of each other. LOVE them, and now each compartment is almost full. You can see complete details here.

I have used two methods. One was to keep them in a soft/mesh pencil case that was purchased during Back To School time. Now I keep them in my rolling tote which has pencil loops.

I have about 360 markers and I use the big storage case that holds 380 with the 6 removable baskets. I like the portability for stamp group every Friday night.

I have almost 150 markers and I store them in Krus boxes from IKEA. I just uploaded some pics this evening.

I never travel with my Copics so I just need a stationary storage, but it has to be mobile within my home as I sometimes bring the markers with me to color while watching TV in the living room.

I recently got one of those scrapbook totes that they had at Michaels a couple years ago. I got mine off of eBay.

I did a video about it here:

I store mine in a folding marker case I found at Blick. I scrap out a lot so I needed something small and portable.

All 358 of them. I had them all by 4 months after I discovered Copics in 2011. And they're in a Copic case with home-made dividers instead of the net bags for the colour families. You can see them on my desk and by my chair: here

I have considered the artbin method. It seems pretty practical for coloring on the go ... And keeping the stamped images in the bin.
Copics are addictive ...

Copic Storage

I have 40-50. I use the above Sterilite container which keeps them on their sides and I can see the colors through the side of the container. I am also able to keep a few Momento markers and a couple of Copic Multiliners. It fits right on my Expedit and works perfectly for me!

I forgot to add that I use only one which cost, I believe, $3.99. They also have a version of the same container that is about half the size which would be great if you don't have that many Copics.
