Well fret no more! Here come the chaek bachim to save the day! Chaek bachims are a great invention for sketchbookers around the world!
Oh no! Not the chaek bachim!! Once they put themselves between these pages, we won't be able to mess up all the pages underneath!!!! Argh!
Chaek bachim (pronounced 'check pacheem') are typically made of plastic. They come in many designs and sizes. The one on the left is from the Osaka Tezuka Manga Museum in Takarazuka, Japan. The well used one on the right features the Chuncheon city mascot and is from the Animation Museum here in Korea. Sometimes they are given to kids as part of a promotion. Students mostly use them in their notebooks since they are said to improve penmanship.
Do they use these in your part of the world?
