Why I Love Sharpies!

I love Sharpies because of their availability, Sharpies can be found at almost any store in many different bright colors! I love the fact that there are all different tip sizes for Sharpies, Sharpies can be found anywhere from marker size to a fine tip pen size. Sharpies have lots of different helpful, practical uses... and are so much fun to use!!

About Sharpies

Qualities All Sharpies Have

The Sharpie started out as a Permanent Marker, (mostly used for marking boxes)

Now the Sharpie has become ones most handy everyday tool, with hundreds of products there is a bigger expanse of uses then ever, making the Sharpie a very helpful tool found almost anywhere!

Sharpies have these qualities:

*Instantaneous drying

*Ink that can write on practically ANY surface

*Easy use

*Dry Out Protection

*AP certified nontoxic formula

Sharpies have quickly become useful to many more people as more and more products are created.

Personal Sharpies!

Write Out Loud...

One of the things I love about Sharpies is that you can get "Personalized Sharpies", cool right? You can get a Sharpie Marker personalized right on the Sharpie Website.

Put Your name on your Sharpie or a welcoming Message, you have two lines of text.. neat huh? Put a famous quote on there, or a quote from a TV show you love... and "That's What She Said" ... The Office.

What Are Sharpies Used For?

How Many Things Could You Possibly Use That Pen For?

Sharpies can be used for multiple things, let you imagination go wild!

There are so many different colors, and tip thicknesses, there are even Sharpies that wont leak through your paper!

I love using Sharpies from using when inking my art to marking boxes when moving.

Sharpies are useful due to their wide spread of qualities, I use king size marker Sharpies for marking boxes while I use ultra fine point Sharpies when I ink my art, usually my manga.

Sharpies Everyday Uses

Was This Bottle Yours... Or Mine?

I use Sharpies to mark Pringle cans, pudding containers, to mark toys, with two little boys in the house it's important to know who's is who's and keep things separate, which becomes difficult when they like the same things, this is where writing an initial or name on that item comes in handy, and since Sharpie never comes off it's a good item for that!

Ever been eating pringles and realize the person next to you was too? or you got your water bottle mixed up with someone? Mark your bottle or can with a Sharpie, with an initial or name.. you will never get them mixed up again!

Once you find how useful this can be you will never want to stop, I know I don't!

      I love Sharpies. I've had a thing for markers since my teacher used them in grade school 50 years ago (Magic Marker was the brand of choice then). I use all different types and sizes of sharpies, but I see quite a few I haven';t tried yet in the picture above. More to love!
