I love a good pen. In college, I majored in graphic design and I also earned a B.F.A degree, which required me to work with many different types of art media. One of my favorites, the sharpie marker. It’s easy to use (no cleaning or maintenance required), offers great results, and it permanently marks almost any surface.
When I heard that Sharpie had developed these new STAINED brush point markers, I couldn’t wait to get my hands on them. We were sent a package that includes one set, along with a bright white tee, pillow case and a single converse sneaker.
I did have some reservations about letting Emma write in permanent ink on a white shoe for fear that she’ll have the urge to do it again on her own shoes. But against my better judgment, I let her loose on it. She enjoyed herself, dontcha think?
Sharpie STAINED markers boast the permanent ink capabilities of a traditional Sharpie; however, these markers will not bleed on the fabric and will retain their vibrant color after washing. Kids can easily design their own t-shirts, or gifts for Mother’s Day and Father’s Day. It’ll certainly keep them occupied for a a few minutes!
BUY IT! Available at Office Depot retail stores and OfficeDepot.com, Sharpie STAINED markers come in a pack of four and eight for $9.99 and $14.99, respectively.
