Sharpie permanent markers where invented in 1964 by the Sandford brand and almost overnight became a worldwide success, so much so in fact that in some areas of America, a permanent marker is referred to as a Sharpie – another example of a brand becoming a household name, just like Hoover and Sellotape. The Sharpie writes on almost any surface from glass, wood, fabric and stone, to plastic, metal, leather and of course, paper.

Sharpie Tip of the Day
Got Sharpie ink somewhere it’s not supposed to be? Spray WD-40 on a rag and then apply it to the stain in a circular motion softly scrubbing the marker ink. Next get a clean rag and continue to wipe away the marker until it is all gone. It really works!
