Does it matter? I bought a set once, but they seemed to dry out really fast and I thought they were a total waste. Are there some that work better?
Thanks, Heather

I bought a set of Americolor markers, stuck them in a drawer, and forgot about them for at least a year or two. Took them out, and they still worked great! I thought they would've dried out, but they hadn't. I've been using them for quite some time, and one of the pens is finally running dry. I'll definitely be buying more! (I used them to write the name of the months on my "year of cookies" heart cookies).

The Wilton ones are horrible - don't waste your money. I found out the hard way and complained to Wilton, they are replacing the amount I spent with another item and shipping it to me (so it wasn't a total waste in the end). I'm going to be buying the Americolor ones soon.

Thanks! I don't remember what kind the ones I bought were, but I will try a set of the Americolor.

I too have bought the Americolors pens and find them to be great. I keep them in the fridge and they still work great even after a year.
