The Sharpie Pen Affair


The Sharpie Pen is here, and it's amazing. I love it. I promise you it does not bleed through or anything. I have been silently hoping that Sharpie would solve the bleeding issue and create a pen that would be perfection in my hand. It has finally happened. I bought a set at WalMart over the weekend, I didn't truly believe that it would work. I have been burned before by Sharpie and their promise of no bleeding. So it was with trepidation (and excitement) that I wrote a note on my handy Post-It notes. I flipped it over, there was no bleed through! My dreams were now reality. Life was complete. Until I realized, that I only had one in blue. So today, whilst buying office supplies for my desk at school, I bought the four pack. I'm in heaven.

I know the skeptical feeling you're currently experiencing. You must think I'm insane. But it works!

Sharpie fans rejoice!

Nice to know that they perform as advertised as far as the not bleeding through. Yet, I'm still wary of reports that its painted finish is rather prone to cracking and flaking off. Might give them a try if I were to find them on sale. In the meantime, I am still quite happy with the Prismacolor Premier fine line marker pens.

Just wait until you get your hands on the retractable Sharpie pen.

The finish does flake off, unfortunately. Also, at the end of their lives, you have to hold them straight up, or they won't write. Yes, I was also excited about the non-bleeding, but I may go back. First, though, I have to get over the whole "losing pens I really like" thing I have...
