Sharpie Pens - Review (Giveaway Closed)

Have you seen these new Sharpie Pens? I think I've used them every day since I got them, and I think they're great!

The Sharpie Pen is a felt tip pen with a point that's fine enough for everyday writing. The ink is permanent, smear resistant, water resistant, and acid-free. (I am definitely going to use these for scrapbooking!) The ink won't bleed through paper, under normal circumstances. I love the smooth lines and the fun colors:

I also had a chance to try Sharpie Twin Tip Permanent Markers. Each has a fine tip and an ultra-fine tip. These permanent inks will bleed through paper, but have tons of other uses. We always keep a few Sharpie markers in the kitchen, in the office, and in our travel bags. What I most like about the Twin Tip markers is the choice of 20 colors. These are the colors I tried:

These colors are really different, vibrant, and pretty. I especially like the sky blue (on the right side of the row of three).

Sharpie has put together a prize pack just for the Back to School Bash. This is what one lucky reader will win:

  • A Stainless Steel Sharpie Pen with refillable cartridge
  • A Sharpie Pen

  37. I use sharpies all the time, and what appeals to me most is the selection of colors. I stamp and then color in my envelopes that I use, and I love their colors. I love the silver too by the way...it adds a "flair" even if you just use it to make some "random" dots on the envelopes.
