Advantages: long lasting, good quality, permanent
I've been buying sharpie for quite a few years now.
At times I will purchase other brands that are on offer but if someone said to name a permanent marker brand, my mind automatically thinks of sharpie!
Sharpie markers are available in a range of colours.. and I do have a few lying around. They come in red, blue, green, black.. I also bought the metalic gold, bronze and silver that were available over the christmas period.. so there is quite a range of different colours and probably some others i've not yet come across!
The marker itself is quite thick to hold which I like as it is easily held in your hand. The lid comes on and off easily and the marker itself writes of good quality.
As i've tried several different colours of these, I can say that they all work well and i've never encountered any problems with them.
If you are writing on paper with them then they will go through the page - but that is standard with felt tips and most ink pens.
You can use these permanent markers to write on several different surfaces including plastic, metal, cardboard, fabric labels. As they are permanent they do not wash off and have stayed on the surfaces I have written with them on.
I have used them to write on wrapping/gift paper when giving gifts and I used the bronze/silver/gold when writing on greeting cards etc.. I have also used them on plastic boxes and cardboard to label things. The sharpie pens also work well on objects such as cd's and are fine to label them with.
Basically if you're after a permanent marker.. I can't really fault these Sharpie ones. They are of good quality and they have never dried out on me. In terms of retail price i'd say it varies.. I have seen individual ones priced between 50p-£1 for the small sizes.. and you can generally find them sold in single packs or multipacks of different sizes. I managed to get a pack of 4 different colours for £3 which I thought was a reasonable price due to how long lasting I found them.
I also think it is good that you can get the Sharpie pens in a mini pocket size or a standard pen size.
Although the pens are fine, I find you can change the writing of it depending on how you hold the pen.. so holding it from the top would allow you to write with it finely, but holding it slanted would allow a thicker line when writing.
Sharpie pens are sold in most supermarkets and stationery shops.
I give them 5 stars and would recommend them.
Thanks for reading :)
