As part of the Start Something New campaign, I received a bag of goodies from Sharpie to review. Since I am a big fan of Sharpie, I already own most of these pens. Pictured above is all the goodies from Sharpie and a few of the things I used my Sharpies for this week.
I love the versatility of the pens and that they don’t smear. I especially like that the pens don’t write through my thank you notes and the ink not only coordinated nicely with my wedding colors, it also dries almost instantly. The fine tips made it a cinch to write around the “flowers” I made for a friend even though they are quite small. Even when writing on the plastic cups, I had no problems with smearing ink once it dried. The ink doesn’t dry quite as fast on plastic as on paper but it is still pretty quick. The only one of these products that was new to me was Sharpie Accent highlighters. They have a nice tip that makes a broad stroke but thin enough to be precise and the ink resists smearing many other inks to keep your notes legible.
What do you use your Sharpies to make? If you haven’t tried some of these new Sharpie products, you are missing out!
