Sharpie Original Permanent Markers

Uncap the Creativity

When it comes to self-expression, nothing beats a Sharpie. Introduced in 1964, the world’s first pen-style permanent marker made its indelible mark on the world. Suddenly, paper wasn’t the only surface with a voice: Glass, wood, stone, plastic and metal all became a canvas. And that was just the beginning. Today, each new color and style sparks ideas, inspires creativity and makes life more fun for humans everywhere. So what are you waiting for? Grab a Sharpie and uncap your imagination.

Nice set but be careful about what "fine" you need

By Shannyn

No problems with this set. You can never go wrong with Sharpie. They are the superior permanent marker, and we use them for all sorts of projects, especially the stain glass coloring books. Bear in mind that Sharpie "fines" have different tip widths and this is not the finest one. It actually seems chunky for being called a fine, but we used it for coloring bigger areas and backgrounds. We bought a set of ultra fines for detail. If you color, you probably eventually need a set of each of the widths anyway.

Sharpies are GREAT for Zentangle!

By Christine Shuck

I teach Zentangle classes and I am in the process (interrupted by the cold of winter) of putting Zentangle designs over my entire van. Call it a moving advertisement for my classes, a deterrent to car thieves, and the certainty that I will NEVER lose my van in a parking lot. The Sharpie brand markers are a perfect, cost-effective tool. I use the slim Fine point for most of my paper artwork, the ultra-fine for classes with young kids, and these fat ones for my car.

Love them! Here is a picture of my progress…

The best Marker.

By Philth

It seems pointless or even funny to review something as common as a 12 pack of Sharpies. The fact of the matter is it’s worth reviewing. These are high quality permanent markers. Without a doubt Sharpie is the trusted name in permanent writing utensils. During my entire life I have been calling black permanent markers as Sharpies, a testament to its popularity. The reason Sharpie is so good is that it is completely safe, and highly permanent and very reliable. For anyone worried about ingestion, or eye contact, or even any other safety situation with a Sharpie, should rest assured. Under all normal circumstances Sharpie is very safe, in fact if you want more information it can be easily accessed from their MSDS (Material Safety Data Sheet) readily available on their website. Although I myself have been using Sharpies to identify my own clothes, Sanford (the company that produces Sharpies) highly recommends not using it on clothes as it can run or bleed in the wash, and also after time it may leave a yellow halo around the marking. Although Sharpie claims that it will “remain permanent under most chemical washes, and extreme heat and steam (up to 500 degrees F)” it is possible to remove it form clothes. They claim that stain remover can work, but to use extreme caution. A detailed summery of how to clean a stained garment can be found on their website FAQ. Sharpie is the highest quality permanent marker I have ever used, it is used frequently in my workplace, and is always reliable. I suggest it to everyone; it is also made in the U.S.A., which presents a trusted quality. A very good permanent marker, 5 out of 5.

Yes! Finally made the sharpies in great colors!

By T. Reinhardt

These are the pens my son prefers to draw with. There are many available art markers out there but for solid clear color that is permenant and easy to use my son really enjoys the sharpies. For that matter, so do I.
I find the cost very reasonable and I have found that they last longer than the traditional art markers. You do need to be careful as they are permenant and they will not *blend* like general artist markers but if you are using them to outline or fill in large amounts of space with the same color, these are tops in the price range.
I generally use these with a more solid paper to prevent bleed-through to the other side or general bleeding of colors. Not a paper as thick as watercolor paper but a decent drawing paper. These arent the kind of markers I would sketch on newsprint for example.
the new colors they came up with are clear, sharp and eye catching and the nibs are solid. These are a very good pen in the catagory

Great Set for Art Journalers!

By O. Merce Brown

This is a great set of Sharpies for artists, because there are so many different colors. You can see from the picture that quite a few of the colors are really light and wouldn’t be good for use as markers for signs or other types of usage; however, they are great for any kind of art work. I found that even though the colors are light, the markers are strong and mark very well in the lighter shade.

These Sharpies will write over many different kinds of paint and ink without any problem. When you apply watercolor or a mixture of ink and water over them they don’t run at all. I use them for my art journal, and will use this set until it wears out and then buy another. They are economical and I can’t find a better deal on them anywhere.

Highly recommended.

Great for clothes

By Amazon Customer

I use this marker on my socks. I write an "S" on the bottom of each sock to make sure that no one else attempts to claim them. Wash after wash, the letter is still there.
I also use it to write in my school books. I’m in college and books are very expensive. I write my name in all of my books, as well as on my notebooks and disks.
I have accidentally gotten this on my hand more than once. I just wash my hands with soap and water. It may take 2 or 3 hand washings to get it off.
These markers are also great for posters because the line is thick enough for poster board.
