Why I love Sharpie Permanent Marker Fine Tip Ink Pens

I bought a pack of Sharpie Permanent Marker Fine Tips last month and put them in the drawer, but before long a friend came by and asked if I had any permanent ink pens he could use for writing on a CD. Sure enough! I was prepared and pulled one out to give him.

Later that day I wanted to draw something in my sketchbook, but couldn't find my expensive art pen ... and then I remembered the Sharpie Permanent Marker Fine Tips. I pulled one out and tried it in my sketchbook and the result was absolutely perfect. Just what I needed! It is good to have options!

What to expect from a Sharpie

Sharpies have a strong, plenteous line - and my favorites are fine-lined, so they're not overwhelming. The ink is long-lasting and quick-drying. It is fade-resistant, waterproof, and smear proof.

Also cool to know in case you have kids or pets: these Sharpie Permanent Marker Fine Tips are AP certified non-toxic.

I love the fine, detailed lines that adhere perfectly to almost every type of surface... and that's something else to consider if you have kids. These pens are not for the very young, who might mark on your walls!

The basic colored pen set includes blue, green, and red, plus two black pens. Those black pens come in handy! I use them a lot in my art work.
