i love sharpie markers. they’ve been there with me through the years…
they were there with me for each report label i made throughout university (oh those analog days). they were there with me through moves as i labeled boxes, for holidays and birthdays as i wrote messages inside each card. they were there as i made entries in scrapbooks after each one of my kids was born, and again as i labeled tags on their clothing when they got old enough to go to school. go on, get a tissue, i’ll wait…
sharpie was there when i needed to touch up a corner on a frame that had chipped a little. they have been there through countless doodles. and most recently, a sweet songstress i adore signed her cd for me, using my purple sharpie fineliner.
i just heard sharpie has come out with a sharpie pencil.
writes like a pen.
erases like a pencil.
sets to permanent within 3 days.
i’ll be trying it when it comes out in the fall. cautiously optimistic. i’m not sure what the benefits are over conventional pencils. but i am very curious.
sharpie has never let me down before, and there are very few brands i can say that about with all honesty. i wonder if the execs at sharpie feel the pressure from the might of my expectations …
disclosure: sharpie hasn’t given me any samples (though i wouldn’t be opposed) or any sort of compensation, monetary or otherwise. i just really like sharpie and hope this new product lives up to all the hype :-) ~ ana © imadeitso, 2010.
